Can't Put the Pen Down…

About the Author

IMG_2990 -contrast boostedLinda Studley, aka Linda Connell Studley… that’s me. I’m a writer, musician, independent recording artist, and visual and digital artist who lives in northern British Columbia, Canada.

Poem a Day Project
I wrote a poem a day for a year, not to prove anything or set any records, but to try to improve my technique by not allowing myself time to second guess. By turning off the inner critic on a daily basis, I hoped to make it a habit, to free myself from the self defeating insecurities that so often hold our hand or make us hide our words or worse, hit the delete key! I hope that, along the way, readers found a poem or two that resonated with them and that, perhaps, other writers who are experiencing self doubt or blocks took heart and joined me as I put the inner critic firmly in her place.
The edited version of the poems from this year long series is available in book form. “Falling Awake and other poems” contains over 200 of the poems from the writing challenge, edited and proofed and tidied up considerably. I hope you enjoy them. 🙂

I have provided proofing, editing, research, custom writing, ghost writing, songwriting, web writing, website design, and graphic design services to writers, poets, musicians, businesses, and organizations for over twenty years. contact me at

        I know what you mean Linda, well just so you know I think your poetry is great and you have an amazing voice, I was listening to your music on your website a few days ago.

      • Thank you Chris. I’m working on a new CD and, of course, there always seems to be more gigs in the summer time, so it’s getting real busy around here, music wise as well as writing. 🙂

    Hi Linda, I really like your Poetry and I’ve just watched a clip of you on youtube doing a poetry reading in Alaska Cafe, Dawson Creek, I particularly like the one about a parallel universe, great humour in the last line, made me laugh.

    • Thanks Chris. It’s always fun to do a reading, especially with fellow poets and friends around you. I’m glad you got a laugh from it, I had some fun writing that one!

  7. Thats a wonderful challenge!! I do wish to take up something like that – like you said – for our own moral boost to write and write– Best wishes for your endeavors!
    Your poems are all very godo too…

    Hey there, Linda. Write, write, write and sing, sing, sing. Thank you so much for allowing our drama troupe The Fort St John Players to interpret your song Give Me Reason into ASL (sign language). We are so pumped to perform this song with you at The Lido in May at Light Up the Night. Your generous spirit inspires us as much as your lovely voice. Cynthia & The FSJ Players

  10. I really like the idea of a poem every morning. I look forward to seeing your book and thank you for subscribing to my site. I hope to continue one day.
