No Sleep With All This Worrying

My brother sent this email to me: "My bed is a magical place where I can suddenly remember everything I was supposed to do."

Such tricks don't work for me: As soon as I shut my eyes, I'm met with an elaborate display constructed by the Freudian Fireworks Company spelling out the word…

Creative Courage

I love to ski, but seem to come to it with more injuries every year. Right knee, upper back, right wrist, left foot. I got a cortisone shot in my heel this time, determined not to miss out. My sister puts it somewhere between crazy and brave. Poised above an icy run at the top of Jackson Hole, for the first time I…

as darkness descends.

How I Wrote Two eBooks in Three Days

Hope Is Not Enough When You Are Working On Your Dreams

Image via Psychic World

I’m guilty of something I believe many writers have issues with: procrastination. But I’m not alone! Statistics show that approximately 20% of the population is affected by it!

Good Evening!

Here it is – a brand new day in a brand new week. But what will this week bring for you? Will it be more of the same- but if things are going well then more of the same is a good thing but- what if things are not going too well. What if this new week just brings you down just thinking about it.

Think of…

The Look of Fear on the Human Faces of Misogyny

 

We hear the word “misogyny” so often in the litany of worries about a Trump administration that, like other words in that long list, it begins to lose meaning – although the silencing of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was a great reminder. Behind that word, however, are the faces – and lives - of women, both inside the U.S. and further afield.

Good Evening!

Ya gotta keep going…when you want to effect change in your life.

You wouldn’t exercise one time and think that made you fit for life, would you? You wouldn’t eat dinner one time and think you never had to eat it again, right?

So taking action one time isn’t going to get you where you want to go…
