Hi I’m Elizabeth Greentree, but everyone calls me Buffy, so you can too.
I’m the director of The Buffy Group, a company entirely dedicated to the amazing variety of projects I like to throw myself into. Mainly writing, but also a good dose of teaching. I’m not a believer in the adage: those who can’t, teach. I think only those who can do it extraordinarily well should be allowed to play with the minds of others.
It has taken me over ten years to discover that my true passion is writing. Not only writing for myself, but helping other people to write more confidently and with a greater sense of joy.
Years as an English language teacher and university tutor in amongst a decade of my own tertiary education has shown me the value of writing well. It has also shown me that the majority of people, even university educated people, do not do so.
So, what to do with a love of teaching and a love of writing? Well, I started with an insane challenge to push myself to the edge of reasonable writing. Basically, try to write 100 first drafts of novels in 5 years. It allows me to test what works and what doesn't. That did a lot to develop my writing, but what about the teaching?
Well, my Five Day Writer’s series is the beginning. I’m bringing you the results of my years of learning, teaching, and experimenting. But why writing? Because I believe that anyone who wants to be successful in the Information Age needs to be able to write, and write well.
The aim of the series is to help absolutely anyone prepare for a lifestyle of writing that will lead to more prolific content production and joy in the experience.
I have also started offering ebook production and promotion services through the Five Day Writer website. Need some help getting yourself out there and heard? Well drop by www.thefivedaywriter.com and see what we can do for you.
