This past July was the first time I haven't met my Camp NaNo goal. What's Camp NaNo you ask? Read about it here and perhaps you might decide to partake in April of 2020. 🙂 One week into the month and I suspected I might have a difficult time meeting my goal. Two weeks into… Continue reading “Real” Writers Write Anyway. Or Do They?
A while back a friend talked to me about her desire to make a difference in the lives of others by getting her "story" out there. That story consists of almost being murdered by her ex-husband. No one--as in not one--not even the doctors, expected her to survive. But survive she did! She's truly a… Continue reading Making a Difference to Just One
Camp NaNo was a success in so many ways! I got a huge sense of accomplishment by completing my hourly goal. Enjoyed "campfire talk" with my cabinmates. Met some new amazingly kind, fun, fellow writers. Established a solid writing practice. Discovered that no matter how busy I am (April was one of my busiest months… Continue reading Camp NaNo Success!

It was a little "iffy" at times, but I did it. There's nothing as exhilarating as reaching the summit! :-)… Continue reading The Thrill of the Climb

Nothing I can't make up, though. And Saturday's all-day event made it worth… Continue reading Book in a Day
Camp NaNoWriMo began April 1st and I'm off and running. One of the best parts is the virtual cabins. We have 11 people in our cabin and the support, comradarie, and inspiration we get from each other is priceless. And, pardon me if it sounds like I'm bragging, but we do have the best cabin… Continue reading Setting Goals
It's camping season again. Camp NaNoWriMo, that is. Fun with other writers in virtual cabins, brainstorming with each other, cheering one another on, virtual bonfires and s'mores, writing by lantern light...All the things to love about camping except pesky bugs. This session I'll be working on editing and revising book two in my Whispering Pines… Continue reading It’s That Time Again!
We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise, we harden. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Have you ever declared some time off, regardless of what other people think or do? It's called being true to yourself and is one of the best things you can do for yourself and everyone else… Continue reading Ready to Roll
Nowhere does it say goals need to be set in January. In fact, it's never too late to set goals. After all, today is the first day of the rest of your life. I spent some time this weekend reviewing my writing accomplishments from the past year and made some goals for 2019. What… Continue reading Writing Goals
