The Thrill of the Climb

Today I'm posting some quotes that have made a huge impact on me and that go hand in hand with reaching the finish line of Camp NaNo (which was yesterday). Yes, I made my goal! 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

Book in a Day

Last week was perhaps one of the busiest weeks I've had in a long time, in large part due to Crime Victims' Rights week (more on that next week), causing me to fall a bit behind on my Camp NaNo hourly goal.

Writer’s Joy

November is shaping up to be a busy month in my writing life. And I couldn't be more thrilled. There's something about fall (and November is still fall, although late stages) and the  holidays that follow, that brings renewed energy and enthusiasm. And when anything having to do with writing gets thrown in the mix...well,… Continue reading Writer’s Joy

Colorado Gold

Colorado Gold means more than the golden Aspens in autumn. To a Colorado writer, it also means the Colorado Gold Writer's Conference in Denver. Held the weekend after Labor Day, it's the perfect way to get motivated and rejuvenate one's writing goals and spend time in the company of other like-minded writers while ushering in… Continue reading Colorado Gold
