Slicing Up Another Week…

 

 

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food

 

I couldn’t be happier to see this crazy week come to an end. All in all it was a good one, but I’m looking forward to spending Easter Sunday with my family and eating candy!

Flops

If you follow the news, you’re either thrilled about no collusion & obstruction or your thrilled that there was collusion & obstruction. Once again, proof that words can be spun to fit any narrative. It’s a wash and a waste of 32 million dollars. What a flop!

The fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in France is devastating. I can’t shake the feeling that it was arson. 7 other churches across France burned last week too and the number of church fires over the past year is staggering.

Writing Wednesday; Let’s Talk About Public Speaking…

 

 

Writing Wednesday

 

Wednesday is the day I share what I’ve learned on my journey from writing, publication, marketing; and doing it all again, and again. The kind of information I wish someone shared with me when I started.

Let’s Talk about Public Speaking, Part 1 of 3

Does that statement take your breath away and leave you wanting to run back into your quiet, safe writing cave? I’m sorry but once the writing is finished, if you want someone to read the book you’re going to have to talk about it. My suggestion is to work on conquering your fear of public speaking as you write your book. Start slow.

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food-and Flowers…

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food

 

I know its cliché, but the weeks seem to be floating by leaving me feeling like I’m missing something or not living life to the fullest.

One of my goals for this year is to slow my days down and to be present and mindful of every minute. Another goal is to enjoy every season. In the past I would hibernate over the winter. I’m positive winter will never be my favorite season, but cute boots, leggings and cozy sweaters made it so much more comfortable.

A month I’d like to sleep through is April.

Writing Wednesday and Health Tips for Writers…

WRITING WEDNESDAY

Writing and Health

Let’s face it we writers spend a lot of time sitting and spending too much time sitting isn’t healthy. It puts us at risk for heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, circulation issues, vein problems, back; joint and muscle pain and more. As a writer I’ve experienced and deal with several of these conditions. It’s time for me to be a healthier writer and I’m hoping you’ll join me. We’re always better together!

Favorites and Flops…

Friday Favorites and Flops

It’s been forever since I’ve blogged regularly, and I miss it so much.

To get back in the swing of posting on a schedule, I’m bringing back my Writing Wednesdays (anything and everything to do with writing, publishing and marketing.) and starting Friday Favorites and Flops (anything I may have heard, seen, eaten or done during the week.)

Happy Spring! I hope it’s warmer where you are.

Here just south of Philadelphia our mornings are still in the 30’s. My plants seem to be waking up a bit so the warm air must be on the way.

Are You Guilty of Road Rage?

Are you guilty of Road Rage? Have you been a victim of Road Rage?

Road rage attacks seem to happen in multiples in my area. I can’t help but wonder why. Is it the weather, the time of year, the time of day, the position of the moon that causes this volatile behavior?

Whenever I hear or read the words road rage my body stiffens and my heart starts to race. My brother, musician David Albert was beaten to death in a road rage attack. His crime was stopping at every stop sign and looking both ways. It happened on a beautiful tree-lined street in the small town of Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania.
