Where in the world did December go?? I felt the month of December was a holding time, as if I was slowly, excruciatingly just waiting around for something to happen. Maybe for the busyness of the holidays to be over. Or maybe it was because I was working hard to set my goals for 2019. […]Read More Lost Time and Pivot!
I woke up before my 4:15 am alarm today excited to write! Relatively pain free, and I knew exactly where I wanted my story to go. These are the awesome days, the days I yearn to be a full time (at home) writer. I qualify the full time part because most weeks I get in […]Read More Day 19 NaNoWriMo- A Productive Day!
I’ve still been writing, just not as much and I totally slacked off my blog. 😦 So what happened and why? First there was the 20booksVegas conference. Amazing. Inspiring. Exhausting. Then I went to San Diego to visit my kids for the weekend. I love hanging out with my kids and grand babies!!! Both trips […]Read More Day 9-17 NaNoWriMo- what happened??? #
Day 8 blog – but I was so tired last night I didn’t hit publish. So I’m doing it bright and early before my flight out of sin city! :] The 20Books Vegas conference has been amazing. And exhausting.

First full day of the conference and I only got in 383 words this morning before the sessions started. But as I heard most of the day from different speakers and peers, it’s consistency and passion that matters most. We will all have days that don’t go quite right or life happens and we can’t […]Read More Day 6 NaNoWriMo… not very many words today
I ended up at the airport four hours early this morning – so got lots of words in! Glad I did since we’ve being going non stop here in Las Vegas. 🙂 Sometimes you need to get out of your routine in order to fill your creative tank. New experiences, new acquaintances, new food. The […]Read More Day 5 #nanowrimo!

I’m pretty good at writing while traveling so I hope to get a lot of words in before touch down in […]Read More NaNoWriMo Day 4 – Words and Planning!
Got my words in today, but even better is that I like the scene I wrote!! It started wandering yesterday so I had to get it back on track. These are the days when it really helps to write every day. When I miss a few days of writing on a first draft, it might […]Read More Day 3 NaNoWriMo – quiet day!
