It’s that time of year again where some writers gear up for the “write of their lives” the month, and possibly a good part of the year where the idea is to simply write, and then write some more. The time of year when editing is not part of the plan, but rather something to …
Have you ever had a moment where no matter what you do or say nothing will change? No matter if you changed your style, your dress, your attitude it’s not quite right? You don’t have the strong feeling that you’ve done the correct thing.  There are millions of “BUTS” in your head. I’ve had those …
Part of what makes writing- for the non-writer or the want to be famous writer is the part of the planning to get to where they want to go.  There are countless self-help books out there on how to become a better writer, or how to write a novel in 30 days, but the best …
It’s okay to take some time to take a step back and reflect on where you have come from and where you want to go.  It’s okay to take a moment and let yourself feel like a person and not a “writer” when you don’t feel you have anything more to say.  I can see …
