It’s something I’ve written about before, but I was reminded of this recently. As someone who’s struggled a lot through their life on various levels, I’ve often felt like my life was doomed to stay on negative paths. When your brain is so used to things going wrong, it just assumes everything will, and so […]

Relaxing? What’s that? My weekend was day job filled. I actually went to a conference where thousands of people were, which resulted in me getting sick. Instead of pushing through and still trying to work (whether on the day job or the author stuff), I decided to take a day and rest. I so rarely
It’s time for W-Inspiration Wednesday… Sometimes you might have people in your life that tell you that you aren’t beautiful in a variety of ways. Today’s reminder is to tell yourself that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Because when no one around us will cheer for us, we need to cheer for ourselves. Stay beautiful, lovely readers!
Time for another Winspiration Wednesday… I tend to do this. I’ll look back over things I did wrong or mistakes I made (in life and in writing). One of my personal goals this year was to keep looking forward, and I’m reminding myself about that today. I can’t change yesterday, but I can do my
Yesterday was a rough one… Super long day at the day job, followed by computer issues when I got home meant I got nothing done last night. I was basically up a lot of the night fixing the computer issues before I caught some sleep. But they seem to be fixed (yay!) and it’s going
Thursday thoughts… Believe in you! Believe you can make it through the rest of the week (we’re so close to the weekend). Believe in you! If you don’t believe you can achieve your goals, no one else will either. Believe in you! Believe you can finish that project, whatever it may be. You can do
Time for W-Inspiration Wednesday… I have a LOT of goals. Some of them are small (read the new Kristen Ashley book), some of them larger (clean the house and somehow manage to keep it clean for at least a day), and some of them are grandiose (quit my day job so I can write full-time).
Saturday was a rough one… I did not feel well at all. I think the stress of the day job and life over the last week just forced me to slow down on Saturday. When it comes to my health, I’ve learned to listen to my body. If it’s feeling exhausted, I take a nap
So how did I do this weekend? Short answer: Not so great. Family drama sidelined me, so I’m reminding myself that progress not perfection is important. The weekend wasn’t a total wash, however. I did manage to write 5000 words in Seaside Valleria 3, mostly through dictation (I wrote more about that in a recent
So, I’ve talked about my bitchy muse and how I tempt her back, but what happens when she comes back with TOO many ideas? Most people will tell you that you can’t have too many ideas. They generally would be right. Having ideas sparks creativity, which can help your brain figure out which project you’ll take
Some folks seemed to really like my post from last week detailing my weekend author plans, so I’ve decided to do it again! But this weekend’s a little different… Going into this weekend, I had several author-y things I wanted to accomplish: Finish editing Seaside Valleria #1. Finish up the marketing pieces for Seaside Valleria
