What is your writing kryptonite?   

Oh man, let me tell you…I have the worst habbit of writing the perfectly imperfect piece and then wanting to take it a step further resulting in screwing it up. I'm always finding myself in a state of thinking that whatever piece I write could be better, a tweak here and there, then just like that I'm hitting the delete button. I've learned along the way of when to tweak and when to lave well enough alone. There have been a few times where I have driven myself absolutely bananas from rewriting a piece seven times over, literally seven time.

What is your writing process?  

My writing process is simple…Step one: get yourself a caramel macchiato (hot or iced depending on your mood). Step two: select which pair of headphones you're feeling; earbuds or the OG Beats. Step three: the choosing of the perfect playlist. Depending on the context of what you're writing, select that playlist that will match the tone for maximum inspiration. For example, today while answering these question, which is a mixture of light and deep, Eminem is the mood. Final step: write in whatever zone feels most comfortable and inspiring. Sometimes my zone is at home, sometimes it's at the coffee shop and sometimes it's found at the beach. Then jus hit play and let the words flow onto your glowing canvas.

Dear You
by Derra Nicole Sabo
Genre: Biography

Dear You is a lovely invitation into Derra Nicole Sabo's world.

A wonderful opportunity borne out of a complex and challenging experience, to recall the good times with loved ones, the chance to express the rarely spoken profound specifics of what binds friends and family together.

Derra Sabo shares a bit of her world with you in this delightful memoir filled with "letters" to family and friends. Overcoming challenges by simply living life; Derra shares her experiences here in hopes of helping the reader gain an appreciation for life as it happens. 

This is a heart-warming collection of letters to loved ones that explores the wonder, frailty and extraordinary qualities of friendship, family, love and life.

As someone with anxiety, writing is my way of speaking. When my verbal skills fail, my pen excels. I have always had something to say to the world and to the humans residing in it, I just could never get my mind and mouth to be on the same level. So, I picked up a pen and haven't looked back. I have a message for you. A message for my family, my friends and to all the beating hearts. Dear You is a letter personally written, from me to you.
