Good Evening

Get the facts first… before you start reacting. Calm down. Think.

Let me give you my own personal example. This morning I was running around trying to get ready for a meeting when the electricity went out. Now, normally I’m pretty calm but it was just one of those days.

Good Morning!

Good morning on this sunny Thursday. You know, so many times we complain about all the things we don't have- but what about all the things we do have? Do we stop to think about those? Or do we dwell on those things enough before we start complaining again?

Today, let's take some time to be thankful for all we…

5 Definite Ways to Improve Your Writing Skills

I've always wanted to write a historical fiction book. A while back I got the idea to write something that was local history. Specifically, about the Bald Knobbers, a vigilante group here in Missouri that existed in the 1880's. They were mostly Union soldiers that had transplanted here after the Civil War, and many scholars call the actions that happened in this area an extension of the Civil War, since most of the crime that they were trying to eradicate came from the Confederate soldiers…

Good Evening

Keep it in perspective…events as they happen in your life. If you have something that is challenging then tackle it piece-by-piece- decide what action you need to take and when you are going to take that action. Then you need to let it go- release it to the Universe. Do the very best you can do to take care of the…

[THE WRITER'S LIFE] Writers Gonna Write

You have read this (essay, article, rant, post, blog) before: Girls may just wanna have fun, but writers just wanna write. It’s an easy lament to poke holes in, easy as teachers complaining about their jobs (You get summers off! You don’t work all day!!). In the case of writers, we get things like, “You get to work at Starbucks without the apron!” or “I wish I could sit at home all day in my pajamas to do my job.” An author I know recently posted on Facebook that she had just finished her…

Good Morning!

good morning on this sunny Wednesday. You know, I was thinking as I walked the dog that we have to be our biggest cheerleaders. We have to believe that we can succeed deep within ourselves, because if we don't, then any encouragement we get from others won't mean a thing to us. It will be nice to hear but we need to…

4 Therapeutic Benefits of Gardening

In a consumerist and overwhelming world, it seems like we lost our connection with nature.  With our busy schedules and fast-moving lives, stress can easily build up and affect both our mental and physical health. Reconnecting with the environment can help our troubled minds.

A Writing Reality Check

It is 4 am. The full moon is half-hidden by incoming rain clouds, and the hot tea I quietly brewed in the kitchen is soothing. I just updated my Writing Journal (a long-ago suggestion from Brooke Warner) with an entry about a writer girlfriend who called me on FaceTime yesterday. It was a much needed connection, and a wonderful surprise as I sat at my desk in the late afternoon trying to clear all the piles off my desk so that today—July 20th, 2016—I could once again get back to my…

Good Evening!

You have that chance… to be happy each day. It is a decision that you make for yourself, to decide to be happy. It is a decision to look for the things that make you happy and putting your attention onto these things and keeping it there. It is a decision to see what things aren’t so “happy” and then look for…
