My name is Christi Gerstle. I am a former English teacher and copy editor with a lifelong love of reading and writing.
This blog will explore techniques for us to sharpen our craft as writers and touch on my writer’s journey along the way. As Hemingway put it best, “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” There is always more to learn where the written word is concerned.

I may not be much of a reader or writer nor the best photographer but I’m having fun in what I am doing. LOL I do try to read every blog I comment on.
Thank you for stopping by and liking my blog posts!
Your blog is full of so many warm and inspirational stories!
Thank you for liking my cartoons! 🙂
Anytime! Your cartoons are adorable.
Thanks for the follow. I think you and I have a lot in common (doesn’t anyone who loves writing and reading?). I look forward to exploring your blog…Margaret Atwood’s name jumps out at me; she’s one of my favorites so I’ll have to check out what you wrote about her.
Been a while never seen you around. Hope all’s well.
Just to let you know how much I adore your book-blog, I’d love to share this book award with you.
Check it out here,
Keep reading! Keep reviewing! Enjoy! 🙂
Thank you so much, Asha! I love visiting your blog and your clear, lyrical style of writing!

Greetings from Australia Christi,
What a beautiful quote from Hemingway, and so very true indeed. I have always thought of life as a journey where learning never stops. The humility to understand that the more we learn about the world the less we know is the beginning of wisdom 🙂
Hi! I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks so much for your wonderful and fun blog. I enjoy it very much.

You’re very welcome! And thank you for the kind comment and compliment. 🙂
Whoops! I left a comment in your “contact me” space (I thought WP was making me login again–that happens.) But–nice blog you’ve got here, Christi!
Glad you like the blog! Thanks for stopping by! And I believe I made the same mistake on another blog a while ago… It’s easy to do.

Hi! I was so inspired by your blog that I’ve nominated you for an award.
Thank you so much for thinking of me! 🙂 So glad you enjoy the blog!
So nice to meet you and your boyfriend at the Cassandra Clare signing. I was a ‘J’ just a few people ahead of you. I loved the post about Pixar’s rules for storytelling, I will be sure to use it.
It was great meeting you, too! It seemed like everyone in line was super friendly and cheerful; we must be a good group of readers. 🙂 It’s so nice to find more creativity-minded bloggers out there — I’ll definitely be checking out your blog.
That’s the best quote ever! And very very true. I think there’s always going to be something to learn about writing.
Thanks for stopping by, Victoria!
