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!
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. 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 That Time Again!
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!
Ready to Roll
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
I Found It!
For years I have searched high and low for the perfect planner, as well as the perfect handbag. I've found the planner, the handbag I'm still on the hunt for. As you can probably tell, I'm huge into organization and these two tools are all about making my life so much easier and, well, organized.… Continue reading I Found It!
No post this Wednesday due to keeping an eye on the election results and keeping extremely busy with NaNoWriMo. Back next week. Until then...Happy writing to all of the NaNo participants out there. Write on!
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
