Welcome to swirl and spark!
I’m Jackie Yeager, middle grade author and daydreamer.
This site is a compilation of my thoughts and dreams and everything in between. I love blogging about writing, publishing, books, and occasionally my kids. So, whether you’re a reader, writer, educator, or daydreamer (like me!) grab an iced coffee or power smoothie–whatever fuels your creativity. Click around, read a good book…or write one. That’s what I’ll be doing!
But why call my author site swirl and spark?
Well, because I like how it sounds! And because the phrase sums up my best tip for writers:
“Story ideas don’t magically appear on command. They must swirl for a bit in the deepest parts of our minds.
So let them.
They’ll spark soon enough, and when that one spark feels like fireworks, you’ll know it’s time to fire up your writer’s brain and get to work. Write the story only you can write.
Because the rest of us are waiting to read it.”
I’m so excited to share that my second middle grade novel is coming from Amberjack Publishing AUGUST 21, 2018!
