Writing Stories of Love, Faith and Happy Endings While Enjoying the Journey

Life with a Writer


I’ll admit, the past couple of months I haven’t been the most pleasant person to be around. IMG_1267

Thankfully, Derek had a tremendous amount of patience, as I worked to meet my deadline.

He came up with a list of five reasons why living with a writer should come with a warning. I thought I’d share his list.

1. They can be moody. One minute they love their story, the next they hate it.

2. They ignore you. Hours can pass without speaking.

3. They have more of a relationship with their laptop than with you.

4. If you don’t cook, you don’t eat.

5. Whether you want to or not, you’ll be a beta reader.

Thank you for being so supportive and patient the last three months, Derek…and for keeping me fed. xoxo

My name is Jill Weatherholt and I’m a writer. I have a full-time job, but at night and on the weekend, I pursue my passion, writing. I write modern stories about love, friendship and forgiveness. I started this blog as a way to share my journey toward publication and to create a community for other new writers. Raised in the Washington, DC area, I’ve lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since 2004. I hold a degree in Psychology from George Mason University and a Certification in Paralegal Studies from Duke University. My first book, SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE, published by Harlequin Love Inspired released on February 21, 2017 and is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com. I was the first place winner in the Dream Quest One Short Story Contest in the Winter 2014-2015 competition. In 2014, I placed second in Southern Writers Magazine Short Story Contest. I was also a top ten finalist in Southern Writers Magazine Short Story Contest in 2012 and 2013. I’m a 2010 and 2012 winner of the NaNoWriMo Contest.
