Stuffitis Anonymous

On reducing stuffitis: “Immaculate and modest living are the planes on which we can rise over our established life and its temporary existence.”  KIM SMITH It has been quite a while since I posted about my lifestyle reboot. It’s because it has been put on hold for some time. First, winter prevented my getting much done, and then my hubby’s illness took front stage. But that desire to turn this bird (that I call life) around has recently begun to plague me once again. Why, you ask? Well, it’s simple really. A basic minimum of  belongings is freeing. I once

You CAN be a shy writer and succeed

You CAN be a shy writer and succeed

This is the follow up to my last post about how to boost sales and get readers which you can read here. When you mention a certain demographic, you really should give them a chance to have their own platform. So, this post is about that sector of the writing world who do not choose to be speakers.

If you were a part of this event, thank you from the bottom of my heart for attending. It was the first of our efforts to bring together writers, aspiring and otherwise.

2017 New Year goals for this writer’s life

Happy New Year! I love the beginning of a new year and I am pretty excited about 2017. It’s the best time to be a writer-author-preneur and we have a lot of choices to consider in this awesome digital era where we can reach customers with a click. Someone asked me what hobbies I enjoy. I had to really think about it because writing and podcasting have been my hobbies ever since 2008, but now I want this to be my business as well. My retirement! So I need to move things along in 2017. I also don’t like making resolutions. They
