Welcome to my blog.  It is a combination of http://www.LouBelcher.com and  www.Before You Write.com. 

You see, I had a website first, then an art blog, then this Before You Write a writing and editing blog.  It was too much. I decided to combine. So this is about writing part of the time and about my art part of the time, and at others, it’s just about my opinions or feelings.

We all need a place to tell our story and that’s what this blog is.

Let me tell you a little about me.  I’ve been a writer for many years and earned a living for part of those years as a freelance writer, editor and coach. Now, I don’t do the editing and coaching very often, because I’ve discovered that I love painting. So, these days much of my time is taken with painting.

Whimsy is my painting topic mostly.  Oh once in a while, I’ll get serious and paint something other than whimsy, but not often.  Here’s a copy of a post card I use for a business card.  It’s a collage of some of my most recent paintings… ( Oh…. forgot to tell you… I love cats)… You’ll notice that from the paintings.


So that’s it for the art…. Writing has always been a part of my life.  I named this blog Before You Write because I felt that it would be helpful to new and old writers to have a place to go to find the answers to many of their questions.

So, hope you’ll follow the blog and more than that become active on the blog by commenting on posts.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.

Lou Belcher
