If you’re a writer, you’ve probably experienced the dreaded writer’s block. You sit in front of the computer to get your writing done, but you have no words. Or, if you’re like me, you might not believe in writer’s block at all but suffer from writer’s apathy—you’ve lost interest in writing for various reasons.

It’s National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo as those of us in the know like to say. I’m not writing a 50,000-word novel this month. Been there. Done that. And, wrote a book. Literally. I’ve won (completed a book) NaNoWriMo about 2 or 3 times. This year, I’m using the month of November to
Womanish are the things women go through. The day to day Ish, the man Ish, the raising kids Ish, the I earn lots of money but still want to be cherished Ish, the I’m more than my womb Ish… The what you mean I’m old Ish… Sound familiar? Every Woman Has Ish… Purchase the
It’s February. We’re four days in. When I was younger, time moved by slower than molasses in winter. The closer I get to forty—later this year—time seems to move faster than Superman on a mission to rescue Lois Lane. January flew by. As did the past two years. So much of me thought I’d be
November is National Novel Writing Month. A time when veteran and newbie writers hunker down and bang out (or attempt to bang out) a 50,000 word first draft of their novel. Note I wrote first draft. I’ve heard quite a few authors speak negatively about NaNoWriMo because it is not possible to write a novel
I like stuff. More than stuff, I like books. Imagine my giddiness when I came across a book filled with stuff—old expensive stuff. According to the description on Amazon.com, “The Complete Encyclopedia of Antiques” is a Collectible 47 year-old Antique reference guide has 1472 pages of photos, descriptions, and history of all major areas of
Last night, on a whim and needing to give myself a push to finish book two in The Church House series, I jumped head first into Camp Nano. Last year I failed miserably at NaNoWriMo. November is NOT the month to write in my family—three things: football season, birthday and Thanksgiving. Hopefully, July is considering
As an avid reader, I buy tons of books. However, I’m always impressed when I come across a great writer who is also a great person. Shelia Goss, who is a nationally bestselling author and 2015 AAMBC Romance Author of the Year, is that writer. And, I applaud Shelia as her 21st book SECRETS UNCOVERED
Today is the last day of 2014. I’m both excited and anxious to see what the New Year holds. I blogged a little more this year and I even grew my audience with simple promoting techniques. Below are excerpts from my top 4 blog posts of this year. Ironically, they are all from 4th quarter.
I was honored and slightly petrified when Shonell Bacon, my favorite editor and awesome-writer-friend, asked me to participate in the My Writing Process Blog Tour. She challenges me each month over at www.snaps100words.com so I acquiesced and accepted this challenge, too. So, here goes… What are you working on? Before I retreat into the Data
I’m finally taking my own advice and re-releasing my first book, The Church House. Because the book was initially intended to be a part of a series, I changed the name to First Family Secrets. Right now I’m looking for test readers, twenty of them as a matter of fact. If you complete the form,
As a writer, I spend most of my time thinking about voice. How I write what I say is just as important as what I say. It sounds confusing, huh? Consider the following sentence: A woman, without her man, is nothing. A woman: without her, man is nothing. While each sentence have all of the
