The idea of the circle goes something like this: In your life there are…See More

[Making the Leap] To Bleed On Paper or Not To Bleed? That is The Question.

Posted on June 17, 2014 at 9:00pm 28 Comments

I have a confession. I love to scroll through Pinterest during my evening television time. And because I try to justify this little time-waster as platform building, I have a board titled Writing. I usually pin writing quotes, pithy inspirations, or beautiful writing settings. But lately, I haven’t been pinning much of anything on that board. In fact, lately, I’ve been avoiding any writing-related pins at all.

[Making the Leap] The Power of Words

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 8:00pm 15 Comments

When I first started writing, I had goals: start a blog, be published, build a platform.

Hi Julie - thanks much for your post.  I too am wading into the social media waters and sometimes getting slapped by the waves (mainly the waves of doubt I have about even doing it!  But:  I've met some lovely people that way I otherwise wouldn't have gotten to know and am enjoying sharing with them.  Rita
