Quips and Tips

Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen’s Blogs

Quips and Tips for Spiritual Seekers is my newest blog — it’s a partnership with author and transformational coach, Gini Grey. It’s a fledgling blog, and blends psychology (my specialty) with intuition (Gini’s area of expertise). Like all my “Quips and Tips” blogs, it features a book and practical life tips in every article.

Quips and Tips for Successful Writers follows the same format as all my “Quips and Tips” blogs. There, I pair inspirational quotations from published, famous, and infamous writers with practical writing advice for both newbies and professionals.

On Quips and Tips for Couples Coping With Infertility, I pair inspirational quotations with practical ways to deal with infertility and the hope of getting pregnant. Again, I highlight a book in every article. My goal is to help people remember that infertility is a drag, but it doesn’t have to make us bitter, angry, or depressed. Infertility is ugly, but it doesn’t have to wreck our dreams!

Quips and Tips for Achieving Your Goals is my most popular blog; those articles range from overcoming emotional infidelity to investing in mutual funds. Books or products are highlighted, and inspirational quotations are paired with practical life tips.

See Jane Soar is based on a book I’m writing; I pull life lessons from successful women in history. Amelia Earhart, Rachel Ray, Annie Oakley — there are SO many women we can learn from! The book is also called See Jane Soar.

And finally, I’ve been the Feature Writer for Psychology Suite101 since October 1, 2006. There, I specialize in articles about mental and emotional health and wellness.

Enjoy yourself here with these writers, bloggers, and poets. Feel free to comment on the posts or email me personally. I’d love to hear from you!

    Hi Summer,

    I’m so sorry — I’ll be in Hawaii on Feb 17! Unless of course your book launch is in Honolulu??

    That’s too bad. I love book launches. Maybe next time?

    Hi Laurie. I am promoting a novel and am throwing a book launch on Feb 17. Would you be interested in supporting a fellow author and attending a private, late-afternoon event?

    Hi Laurie,

    I was trying to access one of your older articles, and I could not. There was “permission denied” kind of thing. This is also what happens if I go to the “older entries” link at the bottom of your main page. Or if I try to access any of the links in the “Categories” part of the web site.

    I hope this could be fixed.

    Thank you!
