Last year, I decided to do something a little different for me. I gathered up what I believed to be my best writing advice and tools and self-published a how to write book.
Crack the Code: Craft Your Novel Using Story, Scenes and Words was my first foray into non-fiction, but I’ve been a writing teacher for twenty years. Not in an official school. Mostly, I taught at writers’ conferences and online platforms.
So there are have been two non-fiction books added to the Books Page of susanmeier.com. If you’re someone who aspires to be an author or somehow who’s beginning to consider penning a novel or two, this book could save you years of trial and error.
Even better there’s a link to a free workshop: This is the Year You Write That Book!

On the personal side of life…
If you heard something that sounded like a starting pistol and a loud groan a few weeks ago, that was the official start of the Meier family updating their thirty-year-old house.
It all began when I realized the commode in the primary bathroom was thirty-year-old, yet it still ran like a champ. And guess what? I jinxed it. It started leaking about a week later. Then the dishwasher went wonky. Then we decided my office should be a dining room and the living room needed a full-blown makeover.
So…In a few weeks contractors will be here to redo the primary bath and create a walk-in closet. After that, the second upstairs bathroom gets redone. Then we move downstairs to the former office/future dining room. Then it’s onto the living room.
By September, we envision ourselves broke and tired.
