God has Me Covered

Speaking in front of a crowd can be a terrifying experience for most people. I willingly volunteer to step up in front of the mike (now that I have overcome my fear of that technology). My nerves may shake a little before I get up in front, but they settle down once I can start […]

Choose Your Writing Expertise

Find what you love and then do it. That advice from the experts seems simple enough, but it can roll out of control if you are not careful. There are so many things that I love, or enjoy, or just am good at doing that sometimes I get scattered trying to pursue it all at […]

Fixing the Unbalanced Writer

There are too many things trying to occupy my time. My brain gets overcrowded and nothing seems to get done. Good intentions lie scattered around like the day after the battle. It is NOT pretty. The first day of February, a friend sent me an email inviting me to be part of a blog a […]

Flooding Out the Muse

Sometimes the words come – other times they stay cages up in the normal and expected. The muse gets choked up and has no way to run. The flood gates opened the other night. Catching that flow can be almost as difficult as taming a true river, but the results of success can be just […]

The Mentor Project

My first attempt at getting published happened while I was still in high school. The manuscript was typed and then mailed to a teen magazine. The rejection letter put up a brick wall on my creative daring that lasted almost twenty years. A mentor would have been a tremendous blessing. Attending writing conferences and making […]

Finding a Writing Conference

This year we are going to get a way together. My friend and I have been talking about attending a writing conference together for the last several years. It usually ends up that one of us has to back out for some reason or another. This year we will be finding a writing conference that […]
