We’re all so decidedly exhausted of all this Covid. It’s important to look at the small and maybe even big high points when everything feels so very low! So, I felt it was a good time to give an update on my personal, professional, and creative milestones. First, from September to December, I was thrown… Continue reading Life Update
I want to make the year 2020 HUGE! Of course, don't we all want to see differences each year? Lose weight, quit bad habits, exercise more, spend more time with family, find a new career. The list goes on and on. I'm obviously no different. 2019 for me was not anything outrageous or incredible. As… Continue reading Looking Back and Forging Ahead
Tonight I listened to The Creative Penn Podcast "My 2017 Goals. Plus Visualization and Positive Thinking for Authors with Nina Amir" I must say, it was very inspiring. If you are a professional writer, or like me, a struggling writer, or any kind of artist, than I definitely suggest listening to this. I absolutely loved… Continue reading Podcasts Illuminations Equals Change
Wowza! Can I just say how super surprised I am this year. My story, Juliet, Missing is going fantabulous. I have just over 11K words already. What is so totally different for me this year is the fact that I'm not using an outline. That is a huge difference. I mean, you have no idea… Continue reading Are You A Plotter or a Pantser?
All this week I have been sweating bullets, racking my brain, trying to find a story idea for NaNoWriMo. Last year I got an idea just a few days before November 1st. The year before that, I dreamed something that led me to a solid story idea just four days before November 1st. And the… Continue reading A New Year, a New NaNoWriMo!
I wasn't feeling well at all yesterday, and while that is not too great of an excuse not to write, I still didn't. So today I must do two. (I'll do them separately, however.) WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST? Gosh...I really sometimes just do not like this question. I mean, in what atmosphere are we… Continue reading

WHAT ARE YOUR THREE BIGGEST PET PEEVES? You know, I try my darndest to be forth giving when it comes to the quirks people attach themselves to. I know I have plenty of them myself and so I hope others forgive me for my annoyances, bothersome traits, and what-have-you. Still, there are things that I… Continue reading 30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 3
So for three long years my writing partner Will and I worked diligently on co-writing our epic fantasy series. We finished in January with book one. I've not been able to touch the dang book (book two) ever since. Oh, I tried. I definitely tried. And we even got a good 25K words in to… Continue reading I’ve Been Smacked in the Face By My Muse!
So I’ve woken up the last three mornings and wrote the minimum of three pages. The second day I wrote four pages. Yesterday I wrote nine. All long-hand. At this point I need to realize that not everything will just pour out and be a lucid story but in fact, most of it is probably… Continue reading Perfect vs Reality
