welcome

as you wish
Hello peoples!

If you’ve found your way to this site, you could be a Living Out Loud e-zine subscriber, a social media follower/bud … or maybe you stumbled here through a link from the Listen to Your Mother production, or one of the telesummit’s or blogs where I’ve participated/guest posted over the years.

Or maybe you googled “writing,” “journaling,” “how-to journal,” “journaling for wellness” or something like that.

Then again, you could just be an old pal determined to find me.

Whoever you are: Hello there; hey. I’m so glad you’re here. 

I’m here (in the world, and in my biz/on this website) spreading the gospel of a writing practice/journaling to writers and wanna-be writers.*  I’ll  show you how easy it can be to write, and how taking the time to be with yourself in this way can transform your life. (and make you a better writer too, if that’s your goal …) But really, I’m all about taking a stand for adding more compassion to the world … starting with YOU.

Writing will help you:

    • bust through your perceived imperfections and “not good enough”s
    • recognize the messages and expectations you’ve internalized
    • shine a light on your blind-spots and help you claim your strength, power and fabulosity.
    • live more mindfully, intentionally, and awesomely.

And all that ripples out to people around you and makes the world way more awesome. (cause, y’know i really do want world peace …)

Stick around, check out the blog – a place to get insight and encouragement for your writing/writing life (as well as lotsa pop culture references). While you’re there, comment and ask questions (i love connecting with mah peeps), and play along with Throw-down Thursdays - a weekly play-date/inspiration/exercise to get your writing groove on. (look up … see that tab that says “blog?” that would be it …)

To get on my insider’s list where you’ll get a bi-monthly dose of writing encouragement and inspiration – as well as special offers, news and updates about in-person workshops, tele-classes and the soon-to-launch Writer Babes** online community and retreats - just use that e-zine sign-up form to your right on the side bar.

And be sure to say hi in all the social media worlds“like” the Facebook page, or follow me on TwitterPinterest or Instagram (you’ll find inspiration, ideas, boatloads of support and special offers there).

You can always drop a line too; I reply. (heydeb [at] debcooperman.com)

*all you have to do to “be a writer” is write, so guess what? you’re a writer.

**and, FYI, writer babes are not exclusively women y’know. case in point: john cusack. robert downey jr. hello? total babes.
