Good Intentions; Bad Planning

Back at the end of May I had quit my day job of janitorial cleaning to focus all of my attention on my writing; actual writing, revising, fretting, more writing, reading, and getting things ready to be sent off. Well, I started off with good intentions, as we all do at the start of somethingContinue reading “Good Intentions; Bad Planning”

My Oh My Writers’ Group Experience

Okay, so I did it.  I finally attended my first ever writers’ group.  It was held at my local Barnes and Noble, and we met in the cafe area.  I brought along my daughter-in-law Kayla for moral support(I’m an introvert, so it’s difficult to go to things like this alone).  I was this close toContinue reading “My Oh My Writers’ Group Experience”

Another Day in the Life of a Writer

I was always worried about calling myself a writer.  I have never been paid for my work and I’ve only been published in church newsletters, Letter to the Editor in magazines and newspapers, and had some poetry published in the local paper.  So I was unsure whether labeling myself a writer might be a mistake.Continue reading “Another Day in the Life of a Writer”

So You Want to Be A Blogger?

As you already know, I’m not very consistent when it comes to blogging. In the beginning, I had so many ideas and was excited to share anything, and I do mean anything, on it. Since I am not a people-person, it is easy for me to share my thoughts on paper, or on a blog.Continue reading “So You Want to Be A Blogger?”

One thing which is nice about walking, for me anyway, is that it gives me time to think and to focus on my creative writing side. I haven’t done a lot of running lately because I have been working more hours. So going for a quick-paced walk is a great way to clear the cobwebContinue reading

Life As I Know It

Not much going on here. Enjoying the feeling of being fit and firm and waiting to turn 50 in a few weeks. Love the energy and the strength of my ‘new’ body. Younger son is returning to school in a couple of weeks. I’m still busy working days and a couple of nights a week.Continue reading “Life As I Know It”
