Writing, not writing

Way back in 2008, I finished my first book, and submitted it to a small publisher. This was before Kindles, and ebooks were still something to be reckoned with, but about that time they were beginning to come to the surface. This publisher did offer them and was one of the reasons I chose to publish with them. My sales were unknown to me. I got small royalties at first, but then, nothing. I assumed it was because my sales had fallen off. I didn’t know anything about sales and marketing at that time, so it stood to reason that

Sick and cannot write? Join the club!

Sick and cannot write? Join the club!

Have you been sick? Well, it’s March and it is simply madness! My greatest apologies for my lack of updates. I took ill and have been battling the flu and bronchitis for weeks now. Sometimes you just cannot stand to do more than the norm. I have felt like that. You haven’t missed a thing, either. I haven’t written more than ten words in months. It’s just difficult when you don’t feel well.     So, my question to you is: What do you do when you are sick and need to get your word count in? What is your

My first real post of 2018

In my last post, my New Years goals post, I said I was going to do a few things differently this year. I really did mean it. But so far? In 24 days of the new year, I have written 7000 words.

I was supposed to travel to Florida this month but Mother Nature saw to it that didn’t happen. Five delays

The look back at 2017 year end

The look back at 2017 year end

For a look back at my goals for the year of 2017 – go here : https://wp.me/p3VxaG-1Pb _________________________________________ I am very disappointed in 2017 as a year and at myself for the lack of accomplishments. But in all honesty, I had more losses than gains, and that in and of itself was the factor behind everything that did or didn’t occur in 2017. All the plans took a backseat to my hubby’s illness as it rightfully should have. But that is what is so great about these posts. Now I can go back and see what I didn’t do and
