About Me

Thank you for visiting Write the First Word.

My name is Marsha Blevins, and I’m from WV. I’ve been a writer for many years, and have a few short stories published in anthologies. I started making up stories as a child but didn’t love writing until my 10th Grade English class. I’ve been hooked since then. I earned my B.A. in English with a concentration on writing. I love learning new things and relearning old things.

I started Write the First Word to help other writers start, or restart, their writing journey.

Why do this?

  • To help you start writing or start writing again.
  • To help you when you feel lost in the writing process.
  • To help you achieve your writing goals, whatever those may be.

I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned about writing, publishing, marketing, and all other aspects of the craft of writing.
