Thinking of you,I waited and waited into the stillness of the night,
Until dawn came and covered me with a mantle of golden light
It washed away all my wishes,hopes and prayers of last night
Along with a hundred things I wanted to confide.
I walked.I walked for miles.
Although I tried but in vain, your thoughts gently swept in.
All those moments, all those memories-
Flashed across my mind.…Continue

I am excited to be offering my second session of ZenPen: Body-Based Writing for Healing, Personal Growth, and Transformation -- the six-week online course!

Sip some cider or tea, listen to your throat and gut and heart and soul and even your spleen and write without judgment and self-criticism.…Continue

The Foundation for Medicare
Not to be confused or considered one of the same as the Medicaid program, Medicare is the United States government mandated nationwide program that mainly exists to provide medical coverage to American citizens over the age of 65. Since the program launched in 1965, it has since been revised to extend coverage to few more of the nation's residents that meet the necessary requirements. The additional qualified groups include…Continue

There are specific upgrades that make your home more attractive, speeding up the sales process. To gain useful market information, prospective sellers should visit other homes for sale in the neighborhood to understand what the competition looks like. Sellers must keep in mind that selling a home is competitive and that their house must measure up quality-wise in that neighborhood.
Curb appeal is the first impression
Given that the first impression a potential…Continue

Inspired by Dane Golden's guest post on YouTube videos, I have begun a new series of YouTube videos, the second of which answers the question "Should all authors (published or not) blog?" Check out the video below for my answer. Also, one announcement: Litquake, San Francisco's literary conference, is introducing Digi.lit, a one-day digital publishing conference that will take…Continue
An essay that ran in Salon Tuesday titled “I’m a self-publishing failure” recounts how one writer, John Winters, spent countless hours and dollars promoting his book online only to sell a handful of copies. Where did John go wrong? How can you avoid becoming a self-publishing failure?
1. First of all, start early.
You know those type of people that say they're going to do something, multiple times, like, "Oh yeah I'm going to start exercising tomorrow" or "I'm totally planning to get into sewing" but then that day never actually comes? I'm one of those people. I start hobbies - lots of them - and I never seem to follow through with any of them. It is my greatest flaw, to be a jack of all trades but none of which I am a master of.
Why is technically why I'm here at SheWrites. I desire to be a…Continue

The past few months have been rough. From not loving my Conflict Resolution graduate program to not knowing what I want to actually do as a career, I have been experiencing a roller coaster of emotions that I can't seem to get off of. Or rather don't know how to get off of.
It started during the first term of the program when I realized my disinterest in the course readings and materials. The disinterest then turned to being unhappy with the program itself, the structure…Continue

Curiouser and curiouser.
As far as the eye can see the doors stretch in an endless colourful sea, all so very different neither uniform nor alike. Some catch the eye more than others being gaudy and opulent, designed to draw the eye and the beholder like a magpie to some…Continue

This week, millions of people are posting pictures of their kids with backpacks and first day of school clothes. It’s such a kick to see those eager young faces and their carefully chosen outfits that will one day serve as objects of extreme mortification, then amusement, then nostalgia and finally, inspiration for revivals. I wish I had a similar record of transformation of my kids’ rooms. The camera typically focused on…
