Stanford awards for my writing


 

Kimberly Gray Is Published In The Ranks Of Stanford Who’s Who

 

TORONTO, ON, CANADA,   August 16, 2012 /Stanford Who’s Who/ — With over three decades of professional experience in the communications and publishing industries,Kimberly Gray is an author who has consistently displayed the passion, vision, and dedication necessary to be mentioned among the elite. As a result of her phenomenal body of work, Kimberly has earned recognition in the exclusive network of prominent professionals with Stanford Who’s Who.

Although she has been writing for several years, Kimberly has spent the majority of her professional career in the advertising and communications field, working on global accounts in the roles of broadcast producer, account supervisor, print producer, and communications manager. It was not until about seven years ago that she decided to start sharing her writing work with the world, having since been the recipient of editor’s choice awards and poet of the year as well as self-publishing three books which include a novel and two poetry collections.

Kimberly’s novel is entitled, My Life as a White, Female Drug Dealer, which tells the story of Sky, who was caught up in the life of a drug dealer and addict and lived to tell her tale. Bringing readers into the world of spiritual, mental, and physical insanity, violence, and consequences that Sky lived through, the book takes people on a journey of loneliness, self-medication, hopelessness, and fear. The redeeming quality of the story is that it lets people know that they are never alone, no matter how hard their life may become, and that there is always hope that they can climb up from the hole and get back on solid ground.

Also working in the world of poetry, Kimberly published Unnecessary Poetry and More Unnecessary Poetry, both books with 30 poems from the incredibly imaginative mind of the author. These sensational collections of creative verse take readers into the boundless imagination of her mind, into places that were previously unknown and are sure to pique the interest of all who take the journey.

Overcoming numerous obstacles over the course of her life, Kimberly serves as an inspiration to all, proving that the only thing that can stop someone lies within their own mind.

It’s times like these we can help make a difference


A route to help exists

Ashley Davisdon and yes it was his birthday, turning eleven which was three days ago so please do wish him a belated birthday--ok it's really me

Ashley Davisdon and yes it was his birthday, turning eleven which was three days ago so please do wish him a belated birthday–ok it’s really me

The workings behind the site;

Many important factors come into play as to why I am bringing you this spotlight. Namely, 1) a website humble and inviting called, My Route to Help and 2) a dude named Ashley Davidson.

As I have been a recovering addict for years, in and out of treatment, Ash has been the first person I ever heard offering to EDUCATE the surroundings of any addiction rather than promising to HELP.

Having said that, education helps so many in need and Ash is a wizard at being able to hone in on a topic or subject and kindly define it then validate it.

Education is our strongest weapon to give our children the tools to fight starting drugs!

Recently

promoting my book My life as a white, female drug dealer, A story of hope, I stumbled upon My Route to Help. I loved the sight instantly. It’s simplicity and to the point, no useless social networking, no videos or numerous photos, rather a simple and powerful site of people helping people.

My column Dear Addict for years was based on the same criteria. Through someone sharing a part of themselves or knowledge, they are reaching out to someone else.

Ash has done a brilliant job and I have been trying to write one or two articles/stories a week. Need to get this flu gone to continue.

We all have a mandate as writers and this is one I hope you feel strongly about as I do. Ash needs writers, anything pertaining to enrich our knowledge around addictions and alcohol, all of it. There are people struggling everywhere and no one has been untouched in retrospect to these disorders. HubPages is a writing site, I know a caring one, that is more than willing to write an article for MY ROUTE TO HELP.

At least check it out, you’ll enjoy publishing knowing you could be touching someone, in a big way.

MRTH site introduction;

Make no mistake, Ash has a clear vision on how to present information and compassion. Jus read this;

Hello,

Thank you for visiting My Route To Help, we hope you enjoy your stay and pass it on to others. I started this website in the summer 2011, I had the motivation from getting a role as a volunteer with CRI. I thought it would be a good thing to do in my spare time to hopefully help more people than what I would be as a volunteer and so far I have.

Within the first 6 months of the website been online it has been through a lot of changes, it first started off a blog type layout without any user integration however now you can make your own profile with an image and a bio which allows you to post your own articles on the website. This is a big hit with readers and our writers. We have 3 writers who regularly post on the website and they have all received very positive feedback on all articles submitted onto the website.

What we do?

We offer a very simple service to people who want self-help, a lot of people have a fear of seeking help, sometimes they just don’t this is what I want to limit, I want people to read up on the drugs they are taking in simple terms so they understand and to be able to read other people’s success stories to know that every goal is an achievable goal! We offer information on drugs like heroin,cocaine and amphetamine. We also offer advise on harm reduction for example how to stop abscesses and what is the hepatitis virus. And finally we offer some addiction help as well as people s real life success stories of addiction which can be used to help people get through their own struggles!

Communication is key

Recently we have just started a new message board which is on this link here. I have discovered that addiction forums are hard to come by on the internet. Majority of forums that are on the internet do not offer a lot of talking points about addiction and they mainly talk about the drugs themselves in a positive way and not a negative away which is more encouraging to people. So please take the time, if you’re a professional or looking for help do sign up and start talking to people.

Thank you for reading

Ash Davidson

REPEAT:

do not offer a lot of talking points about addiction and they mainly talk about the drugs themselves in a positive way and not a negative way which is more encouraging to people. So please take the time, if you’re a professional or looking for help do sign up and start talking to people.

Live in a small 2 bedroom house with my parents

  • What is your greatest passion and what is your favourite hobby?

Greatest passion is football (soccer) watch it all the time no matter who is playing. Big love for the game. Favourite hobby is either fitness or website building.

How did you find the career I hope you like, or don’t like?

  • What are the details surrounding the creation of MRTH?

I created MRTH as a project to do over the summer of 2011. It was going to be a blog about my experiences volunteering within the drug and alcohol services in the UK, which was a part of my university course. However it evolved. I started getting people contacting me to share their own stories which I allowed then I started looking for contributors which made the website grow even more. Because I come from a non addiction background its better for me to write about drugs themselves in technical terms but I have no knowledge of addiction hence why the sharing of stories and contributing helps the website go the extra mile.

  • How old is MRTH?

It’s just over 13 months old now. Still in baby years for the website with over 82,000 page hits!
How many articles to date have been written from readers and members?

No, I use Facebook/Twitter to contact fans and followers of the website.

I hope to see it being the best place to share stories of addiction to inspire others. Along with having valuable knowledge from contributors with experience or work within the addiction field.

  • Are there any operative challenges right now, ie; admin, video, profile page with photo and befriend button? etc. or do you prefer to keep it simple?

Prefer to keep it simple.

  • Who conceptually started MRTH? Is MRTH reaching or offering help to everyone or rather anyone?

Not so much of helping people but to educatepeople. To understand the drugs they are taking. Understanding addiction and to gain motivation reading stories of peoples success stories.

  • Who runs MRTH and maintains it? Is there more than one person?

At the minute it is just me. More it grows I will be looking for people to help out when that time comes

  • What, and this could be anything, with a magic wand would you have this site do?

To make it the most hit drug addiction website in the world supplying knowledge to everyone.

  • Who are your primary readers and what age and geographic are?

At present its 18-30 year olds in the UK, USA and Canada mainly with 46% women and 54% male.

  • Are your readers loyal, are there many?

Very loyal, always come back to either submit more content or comment on new content by other people which is supportive. With over 415 likes on Facebook now and 1,500 followers on twitter is positive and hoping to grow in the future.

  • Ash, please feel free to leave your members and readers with a message

 

Thank you for the support over the past 13 months. It has grown because of your input, as small as sharing the website it is helping, which I am very grateful for.

Will you consider participating in the education surrounding addictions and families?

 

WRITERS NEEDED, WE ARE ABLE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, so let’s…………………..


I am my biggest fan and follow myself


That’s why I like WordPress, I can follow myself and I haven’t been on a site yet where I otherwise could.  Yes I am aware I am talking to myself.  That’s the gift-what happens in my mind, stays in my mind.  A good coping mechanism when one has lost their marbles and is still hungry, is the imagination.  Oh this came about when……

I realized this morning how serious and quiet, even boring and bitchy I have been lately.  It’s not like I am trying to get out of the responsibility of my actions but do confess book promoting is such a drag.  One month of promoting now and it never occurred to me I could take a break or try and work on my next novel.  Having said that my genius mind has decided under no circumstances can I promote my novel, or I shall turn into an irreversible undertaker professionally.

I say……………….

Shit, I think I just promoted myself.  OK, doesn’t count as I am trying to make excuses for my irritating, irresponsible, isolating, ignorant,  illegal, instigating, intolerable, insensitive, insane, itchy, and intoxicated behavior.  Yes I make myself laugh. I may add quite often, quite hard and for long periods of time. I think I am being tickled from  a nervous breakdown.  So I am here to counteract it with typing some thoughts for the moment, It won’t take long, as I have short term memory lapses.

Not in the telling a funny joke way, actually I never get jokes. But in a OMG kinda way. Difficult to explain and I so wish I was a writer to articulate my funniness or humor suppose is a more classy term. I’m all about class, oozes from me. Yep classy natural humor.

Thank goodness I find myself funny, most don’t. They think I am serious or weird or just don’t understand me, until of course, they get to know me.

That’s when the laughter is expected. Primarily from me. I am trying to think of some examples to demonstrate my hilarious demeanor.

I reckon the Three Musketeers are all doing poems in some fancy uptight format or version? I bet they are not expecting one from me about me [zip it]. Please do not be alarmed that I am talking to myself, I am kinda stuck doing so since ‘You’ [me] make me laugh is written to, about, for, from, well, me.

Well I made up my mind since my minds world got me started. It gave myself permission to publicly make an a**  of myself [quite therapeutic if I do say].  It’s widget time and here’s what I’m thinking *giggles* [no control of bladder sometimes, sorry]

Today I shall be LEGO girl!

May I add that my mother told me; Imagination is said to be intelligence having fun. I like that. Though she said not to share it with people as it cycles too fast and teachers use to think I was trying to get thrown out of class.  Well, unless WordPress has teachers, I feel pretty confident I am safe. If only I could just invent some intelligence, or find where I can buy it? Please advise if you can……… It’s OK your safe, I am not contagious [well there anyways].

Hope you guessed by now what makes me laugh is my own imagination. Good thing people can read my mind cause imagine if they couldn’t

eBook Authors Anonymous, kinda


I would like to venture off here and suggest an Authors eLetter.  This newsletter would only be or could only be created by pooling our resources in a professional, attractive and informative way.  I see it mailed out on every Tuesday  first thing in the morning.

Here’s how it could work; First we are not spamming rather emailing a defined list of potential readers by featuring a cover to our eBook and a blurb with where they can find it.  I believe the price is also important.  The recipients are those readers emails you supply me [never to be shared] and one mailing on Tuesdays would go out.

NOT WITHOUT AUTHORS FIRST!

"TUESDAY" production sign

I am working on the graphics and it’s header would be eBooks weekly eLetter.  Clearly this has to be tasteful and I would gather your information by email.  The eLetter would also be posted here-which we could use as a trial basis for our first run.  If there was to be any feedback via email, I would ensure you would receive it.  I think it could only build to a great informative means of kindly promoting and growth of a good database.

Also featuring a different author on cover each week.

If you think this is way to overdone or to intrusive please let me know, I’m posting today for your opinions and can also be contacted directly at www.kimberlyswritings@gmail.com

 

Thanks, looking forward to your feedback.

Validation for writers doubt


Hello,

I refuse to stay in this place, we all have moments of feeling exhausted from very hard work and needing some validation in return.

That validation could tell me I touched someone, I wrote a good Novel, I am unique, most of all to remember I am a writer.

I was just thinking of a few things that can turn this slump into a self animated solution.

Writing is such a lonely job, but…………………….

  1. I absolutely need to remind myself I love it, truly can’t imagine my life without it.
  2. if I write for myself first, I can drop business and success expectations that weigh heavy on my mind.
  3. Doubt– I have to remember with any project so dear to ones heart and does creatively take all you have, doubt is normal.  Give myself permission to have doubt then remember points 1 and 2 and rid of doubt.
  4. Successful writers write
  5. I have to remember to stop predicting if my Novel is well received and that sales are no indication of this.
  6. Stop feeling sorry for myself by not understanding where my novel will go.  I may never know.
  7. Writers block is part of the craft.  In fact it is during these black outs I write the most-about nothing-then suddenly I find I am writing and the block lifts.
  8. Obsessive I am and have spread myself to thin by the number of writing sites I write for.  I must force myself to let many of them stand still while I pick my favourite three and work with those.
  9. As hard as it is for me I want to start talking with other writers share knowledge and get to know writers to talk with in general.
  10. Lastly, I must take breaks starting tomorrow :o) as I never do.  Walk away from the computer and do something not related to writing, including thinking about it.

Here’s hoping…………………

really hoping

Thank you

How to become a writer


Kid Rock – Roll On (Full Version) (Video)

How to become a writer has one critical step in doing so.  How to remain a writer has certain criteria at least that I must live by, to sustain being a writer.

http://hubpages.com/embed/video.php?vid=553&w=640

Firstly I was taught this and it changed my life.  Just as I loved writing my whole life I easily labelled myself as a broadcast producer for Advertising given my full time career.  Not that I didn’t love it just inside I dreamt of being a writer.  Another producer was concerned and kind enough to ask me what is on my mind.  I expressed my wish to be a writer.

She told me to repeat after me “I Kmberly Gray am a writer”  Three times.  She paused and asked me if I believed it.  I responded ‘absolutely’  Guess what she said, “your a writer, now take pride in your dream and never let anyone tell you otherwise.”  I asked her what to do next, feeling vulnerable and she simply said “that’s the beauty of being a writer.  What happens next is up to you.”

So there I was supposedly a writer, and as you know looking into a black hole wondering your worth the experience or good enough to share it.  Regardless, I was a writer.

I quickly and fearlessly learned how to sustain a writers career; accept being broke, cherish the writing community that is so supportive and apparently every moment possible, write,  YAHOO!


I have no job, and keep odd hours


Well, it’s just occurred to me now after all these years I really do not have a job and have kept odd hours just as long.  Like most writers I work alone and at night (almost 4am now)

I was told successful writers, write and that in order to sell books, I need to write them.  I chuckle at the simplest of things that are important and I loose sight off in my frenzy rush to accomplish little.  I am glad I write for me and not money but the exposure I am spending each opportunity to increase.

My longwinded point, rather request is to ask you in your opinion could you please help me with something. 

I am certainly not asking you to find my novels audience, and it has been weeks of posting and I am absolutely sure I have not hit it yet.  My question is do you have any advice or suggestions as to how I can tighten down my target to a specific 1 or 2 groups?

Oh Boy!  :0)

 

Thank you

Kimberly

Writer Wordart

OK so we came to the conclusion I was completely overwhelmed and found promoting my self-published book was harder than writing it.

I wish I could say things are better, but they are not.  However I am making some leeway [kinda]

Whether you want to promote your blog, website, book, articles, or press release these should help;  FREE SITES!

There are numerous free sites to support authors and writers!  If these are repetitive, yuk, I’m hoping each writer will gain something from these links.  I have joined almost all of them and for what it’s worth, yes very time consuming.  But there is no alternative.  OK here we go, oh wait have to plug my books quick.

They can be purchased at smashwords,

softcovers at createspace,

both at amazon,

my website www.kimberlyswritings.com,

lastly authorsden.

I can be reached anytime directly at www.kimberlyswritings@gmail.com

OK now down to what I hope are some helpful free links that support writers.  The order may be a bit scattered but just the same, the link I hope works.
