Stress and Burnout
What is a ‘better’ writer? I’m sure, after so many years of writing on a blog, it might seem funny that I would ask a question like this.  Don’t misunderstand, I love the act of writing, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without my writing, be it books or other media.  The same …
We’ve all had some very critical days.  Maybe even months and years where one goes into a self reflective mode and doesn’t want to come out of it. I’m sure it’s not only in writing, but in all aspects of life.  It’s hard when what you want isn’t what you really want to work for. …
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 …
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 …

New Year and new goals, and back to the same old grind.  You can’t be the hero or a new person, but you can be yourself, because it’s only one day. Why I stopped writing- for a time.  This might be the better blog post title, but I did in fact take pretty much all …
The last few months have been hard on me.  Not only as a writer, but as a person.  One can argue that change is a good thing, but when it comes to hating the very things you loved, you have to rethink your own values and thought. Are you a joy filled writer? Now, I’m …
I’ve asked before how much money can you make publishing a book, and I’m going to revisit this idea in this post.  Writers want to make money, and that is the law of the land, or so it seems. The real question is how much money can you make writing? The answer is simple: without …
Influence is a wonderful thing.  The more you have the better your chances of success. Influence is how a blog or a person makes others work with them or against them.  There are two sorts of influence out there positive and negative. The more you think about what your blog van become the more you …
