The Characters We Craft…

WRITING WEDNESDAY All About the Characters

Thank you so much for being a reader of my posts, whether you’re here for the first time or you’ve been reading my words for years. This wouldn’t be a blog community without you.

On Wednesdays I like to share what I’ve learned on my writing, publishing and marketing journey. The type of information I wish someone would have shared with me when I started on this crazy, crooked but exciting and rewarding path.

One of my favorite things to do is people watch.

GOALS There’s only five-months until 2020!

Please tell me I’m not the only one freaking out about that. It’s just a date right? Do you set New Years Goals for yourself and/or your business? Normally I’m extremely serious about my goals and I’m pretty good about accomplishing them. The past two-years, not so much. January 2018 started with surgery on my right hand. I squeezed a lemon and tore some ligaments.

Staying Motivated

Summer is coming and while its my favorite season I also dread how unproductive I become when it comes to my writing. Spending time at the beach helps, it’s my favorite place to write but its also my favorite place to rest and daydream. This summer is going to be different; I have deadlines! Three big ones. What I need is a plan and a few extra doses of motivation.

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 back when.
