Morning, everyone! I know, it's Tuesday. I didn't post yesterday. There was a reason. Any post I would've made would've been whiny, petulant, and a pity party. You see, for all my preaching about staying upbeat in the face of bad sales, etc, even I fall off the wagon and have a bad day. Yesterday … Continue reading Finding my way once again
I know, I didn't make my post last Monday. I was kinda busy. We left town on Wednesday to attend my mom's memorial service. I spent most of the last week saying goodbye to her. Finding the best way to help my dad and older sister move forward. Reconciling myself to her passing. And resting … Continue reading Recovery, refocusing, and moving forward
Good morning, everyone! I've got a confession to make. I haven't written my 500 words for a good week. It's been too hot. Yes, I know it's a relative term. This area doesn't see the blistering temperatures other parts of the U.S. do, but we've been warm. And, when you rarely see temps in the … Continue reading When the heat is on

Do you want to write because not writing isn't an option? Are you willing to spend … Continue reading What do you really want as an author?
Happy December! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We stayed home, kept things relaxed. Watched some football. Never put on a pair of socks to go anywhere. LOL A lot of you went shopping. I know this, because I spent time behind a cash register all weekend at the seasonal job! For the … Continue reading ‘Tis the Season!
Someone once told me they were my "#1 fan". And I talked with them at length about that. Why? Because I want readers, not fans.A fan is the groupie at the rock concert, the screaming person on the rail as the stars walk the red carpet. A fan shoves a pencil and piece of paper … Continue reading Readers Vs. Fans
Vacation was...ahhhhhhhh. That about sums it up. Relaxing, calming, and overall just fun. Got back to work yesterday with a great new attitude and perspective! Not that I have a bad job! Nope! Still, the break was timed about perfectly.I got spoiled a bit during our vacation. My 5-6 year old Kindle started acting up. … Continue reading Drumroll please!
