Marie Well

I’m Marie Well, as in healthy well. At least, that’s my aim—to get well and make you well. We all have woes, from breakups to cancer to hoarder houses. I’m here to fix those woes—with tips mixed with my own tales.

Why read me? I’ve got a track record of fixin’ stuff. I’ve cured myself of anxiety. For a decade, I had anxiety attacks that struck almost daily. When not stricken, I’d write Voice articles, mostly on how to combat stress.

And then my world changed. One week went by with no attacks. A month. A year. Two years. And counting.

Now, I want to skyrocket our health—and bolster our creativity. After all, nothing soothes better than strokes of paint or tones of music or reps in a gym.

So, let’s get fit, creative, and well with Marie Well.

The Creative Spark—Make an Unforgettable Scene

Every scene we write in fiction should start with a goal—a desire—and end with a prize not quite won.  Why end with a partial prize or no prize won at all?  Well, imagine you’re the hero.  We want your dream to come true.  And if you’re putting in effort to chase that dream, scene after… Read more »

The Creative Spark!—“Like Wow!”

Do you want your character to sound like a genius, a doting mother, or a valley girl?  You can sound like anyone you want with some tweaks in your dialogue.  Typically, your personality dictates what words you choose, unless you change your traits.
