After carrying the dream of you inside of me for what feels like forever, we are a scant ten weeks shy of your official launch into the world. While I’m not quite ready to say goodbye, I am ready and eager to thank you, for no matter what happens after you leave the nest, you have already given me more than I can express.
Since I don’t want my gratitude to get lost in the frenzy of your upcoming birthday party, let me take this moment to appreciate all you have given me.
Because of you, as a first-time author, I have learned how to ask and receive help in ways I never thought possible. I have reached out for assistance from wonderful people who have helped us both grow. I have even contacted complete strangers—high-profile and highly accomplished people I wouldn’t have…Continue
When I was ten years old, distressed about my life circumstances, I wrote a little book about my crisis on a pocket-sized Hello Kitty notepad and hid it inside a rock wall, hoping some kindred spirit would find it and that we would be forever connected through that common understanding. I suppose you could say that was my first attempt at publishing.
As an adult, I spent eight years writing a memoir about my childhood, and then tucked it away into a drawer. I never wrote to be published, I just wrote because it was in me and had to come out. Eventually, with a bit of pressure from teachers, friends and family, I began to publish some of my writing, including excerpts from my first memoir.

Usually that resistance is the result of beliefs—some false, some true—that get in the way.
In my coaching and teaching, I’ve found several basic notions to be at the root of most writers’ hesitation when it comes to getting started on a novel. Here are four beliefs that may be getting in your way—and what to do about them:
1. You need to know everything that's going to happen in your novel before you…Continue
I'm currently working on my seventh novel, and one of the most valuable lessons I've learned about the writing process is when to hit pause on a particular scene/sentence/description and move on. If you're a perfectionist or Type-A personality, that can be hard to do, but it's extremely important. Trust me!
I use all caps to keep me focused on progressing the story
When I was writing my first novel, if I wasn't sure where to take the story next, I would spend countless hours tweaking, editing, refining, and tinkering the words I already had written. Where did that get me? Nowhere! The problem with spending too much time on a particular area of the book is that you aren't moving the…Continue
the words came suddenly.
an odd day, no gentle people
