Angela, Becca and I hope you’re having an amazing holiday season full of family, friends, good food and special memories. We are so grateful for your visits, kind words of support, and trust in us. We love serving the writing community through this blog, One Stop for Writers, books, and teaching.
We’re tucking Writers Helping Writers in for a well-earned rest until 2023. But we want to make sure you have plenty to read during our break…so we’ll leave you with delicious recipes to try and lots of helpful posts to browse.

Favorite Recipe to You
We can’t wait to find out what you think of some of our favorite recipes! You’re welcome to share some of your own, too. It’s always fun to test out new recipes. 😊
Paying it Forward
One of my favorite things about Angela and Becca is how much they do to help others. They’ve always had a pay it forward mentality, which is why this site is loaded with free tools, downloads, and resources. But helping beyond the writing community is something they believe in as well. As a way to celebrate the release of the SILVER Edition of The Conflict Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Obstacles, Adversaries, and Inner Struggles, they awarded matching cash prizes for the 1st and 2nd place winners of their Writer’s Fight Club Story Contest to charities that help those impacted by conflict. Plus, each year they select a specific charity (or two) and donate a portion of their book revenue to it.
Here’s the 2022 Recipient
With the war in Ukraine, everyday people are enduring extreme challenges and hardship that takes a mental and physical toll. This year, Angela and Becca are sending $1000 to the International Medical Corps to helps this organization continue to supply lifesaving mental and medical support to Ukrainians who are in desperate need.
This is only possible through your generosity, so know when you buy books, subscribe to One Stop for Writers, or attend a workshop, you are an important link in the chain.
Thank you for helping to make the world a better place.
We’d love to know if there are topics you’d like
us to cover in 2023. 🙂

A very merry Christmas to you, and all your readers.
You are making a difference in both the lives of writers and those less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you.
