Inspirational Writing & Publishing Today


It’s time again for Linda to teach “Inspirational Writing & Publishing Today” for the Loft Literary Center from March 14-April 18. This time, the class, which Linda has taught since 1998, is at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hopkins, a suburb just west of Minneapolis. Details are in the announcement section below.

Many of Linda’s previous students have used information and encouragement from the inspirational writing class to go on and get books, articles, and stories published. At a recent Loft event, Linda met a woman who just had her book published. She said, “I wrote my book and found a publisher because of taking your class. Thank you.”

A woman from Switzerland wrote to us about how an animal showed her that expressing gratitude could teach her the true meaning of  love. We could relate. 

Our cat Cuddles licks our fingers in the morning, as soon as the alarm clock wakes us up. We always think she’s paying it forward and showing gratitude that we’re about to feed her breakfast. But maybe she’s already grateful for a new day. 

Our dog Leaf shows enthusiasm for the little things. He appreciates mealtime, taking a walk, and going to the doggie day care to play with the other dogs. His whole body shakes with anticipation before each visit, and he repeatedly kisses us, as we begin our journey to his favorite place. 

He squeals with excitement when he sees the building and then races into the door. Everybody enjoys seeing his love of being there to play. 

In fact, Leaf’s immense gratitude encourages us to bring him to daycare as often as possible, even when it’s a tight pinch financially. This experience got us to thinking about how having gratitude opens a person or animal to receive even more gifts and blessings from life. 

How does your pet show gratitude? What does an animal teach you about the power of a grateful heart?
