Tania, so lovely to hear from you - and wished you lived here still! Thanks for your kind words about the webinar. This workshop is building from that - taking the webinar off the page, so to speak! Hope our paths cross again here - or elsewhere - soon.

Workshop sounds great Deborah! Wish I could come! Lived in Illinois as a kid for 6 years. Enjoy! I loved your webinar on thought leadership--so I'm sure it will be an amazing workshop.

Hey Mama Writers! I'm leading a 1-day, in person workshop on thought leadership and platform building for writers at Ragdale (a writers residency on the prairie, in Lake Forest, IL) and it'll be a fun retreat, if anyone living nearby can get away!

A FB event page with more info is here:

And feel free to drop me a line if any questions - would love to work with -- and hang out with -- She Writers there.

What puts the bounce in your step and the flutter in the pit of your stomach, beside a kiss, of course?

Revenge of the Stay At Home Mother

Comment by Jimmetta Carpenter on April 4, 2014 at 8:55am

I wasn’t very productive at all last week and this week, while I have gotten some things accomplished on my to-do list, I still did not get as much achieved as I would have liked to.  I do have updated posts on my blog that I would love for you to check out.  I shared my thoughts on writing outside the box that some try to place you in as a writer.  I wrote about my habits (good and bad) as a writer and how they either help me or hinder me in my journey.  I took time to promote some things within the Write 2 Be Media company and even to promote a couple of other up and coming businesses that I think are very worthy of being looked at. 

Despite last week being a non-productive week for me I wrote about the need to still show up and move forward in your goals rather than standing still.  Some personal issues had me thinking about how I prefer to make my own route and march to my own beat but of course that does mean that you sometimes have to accept that everything is not going to come easy and you will not always be in constant movement and learn to not beat yourself up over it. 

I also came to two important realizations recently and that is that even when you are in route to becoming a leader, you must first learn how to follow someone else’s lead and that if you are truly going to get where you are going you have to stop putting limits on what you can achieve.  We all have our own goals and dreams to attain but we essentially all want the same thing; to be great in what we love to do. 

I hope you will check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and journey with me trying to make sense of this whole writing world and show your support.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

I recently participated in a writing process blog tour that proved incredibly enlightening. How much we can learn about ourselves from our writing process! What's your process? You can read about mine here.
