Little Misses Make Big Messes

The other day I wrote about ignoring problems and how that “ignor-ance” will only lead to more problems. I left off discussing health and did not even think about it until today. There are times when something little happens in your body, a cough or sniffle maybe. It is a sure sign that trouble waters […]

Noodle Issues

“There you go noodling again.” The marriage class my husband and I took did benefit our relationship greatly. It taught us to see things from a different perspective. The lessons gave us opportunities to discuss our lives, issues and circumstances without being prompted by chaos. It was all good, until about the 1000th time I […]

If I want to have the level of success that I desire in my writing then I have to be willing to go beyond what I am doing at this moment. Choose to Raise […]

Keys to a Good Home

I am no June Cleaver. There has never been any desire in any part of my body to vacuum my house in a dress, heels, and pearls. Making my bed every morning is something I have only recently mastered (and I usually just get out of bed first so my husband has to do it). […]

Success Brings Failure

The successful freelance writer can get so caught up in doing the same ole same ole that she misses the fine line. That happened to me just the other day. I got a project request that touched on a subject near and dear to my heart so I jumped on it. There was plenty of […]
