Building a Bio

Penning your writer's bio can be a scary thing, especially if you don't feel like you have many published credits. Christina Katz shares a few quick tips for writing a bio in a recent online Writer's Digest article.

Christina's advice is simple and encouraging. I particularly like the point she makes about using what you have and letting that be enough. She points out that even famous writers didn't have many credits when they started. Check out her wise words here:

Keep writing, because there's no other way to get those writing credits, nor improve your skills. And no matter what your skill level is, there is always something to learn.

Blessings to you all and happy writing!


  1. Thanks for the great advice, karen, and for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Happy Monday!

  2. Hi Rose, You are most welcome. Your blog is a great stop in the blog world, a real blessing! :)

  3. Hi Karen -

    Woohoo! As usual, you're just in time. I need to write a bio for a devotional site. Thanks!

    Susan :)

  4. Wow Susan, I am blessed to have been able to offer some helpful info. Blessings to you too!

  5. Karen:
    This is a timely piece for several of us. I wrote one six months ago and included a small regionally published literary magazine as one of my credits and then heard from some people in my writing group that the owner was ceasing publication.

  6. Cecelia, I agree. I think things are changing all the time, so we need to be flexible too. Easier said than done sometimes, but good character refinement practice:)


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
