The MINI-CON was a HIT! Good morning, friends! Today is the day after the mini-con that my mastermind group, Desoto Writers Alliance, put on at the library. It was SO MUCH FUN! 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. We had members of some local author groups in the crowd and it was so wonderful to see writer buddies that we don’t get to see (aside from online) very often. Many of you came up

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen As writers, we all tread the same path, and the end of a year punctuates our successes and failures. I love how we can plan out our goals and follow up on them, success and loss. Many of you have kept me accountable with what I wanted to accomplish and what I managed to do. As the year wanes, I am certainly having moments of reflection. I did some things right, and some were just not done. It’s fun to tell my blog followers when I make a

What I Know: Post Con Wrapup

What I Know: Post Con Wrapup

Post-Con – what I know I am back from the con, and I survived! Ha-ha–there should be a tee shirt that says “I survived ________ con.” It is a really exhausting experience for those of us who are not used to being “peopled” all day.  You feel mentally drained. I also felt physically drained after spending 14 hours in the car going and coming. Thank God for my pal, Linda Rettstatt. She is an excellent driver, and we had a great time talking about writing and books on the trip. My post-con advice would be to be sure to drink

Con week : Getting ready to go

Con Week! Are you ready yet? I love creatives and cons, so this week I am a happy writer. So, this is going to be my last post until I am in Louisville, KY at the convention. Oh, Imaginarium, you are calling my name. I simply cannot wait. I guess I had better get my bag packed, huh? That is the last thing I do. I never pack until right before I am about to leave. I am afraid I will need something out of the bag, so I wait. Haven’t really forgotten anything yet. But this is only my second

SPOOK-TOBER : And the beginning of con week

SPOOK-TOBER : And the beginning of con week

Yep. It’s October and you know what that means! IMAGINARIUM 2016 is coming this week! Are you spook- worthy?  Last weekend, I changed the theme to zombies but had to change it back as it was not mobile-ready. I don’t like to visit blogs who are not optimized, so I knew it wouldn’t work. Sadly, I haven’t found a cool spook-y theme yet that is. I know, I am such a child. But that works in my favor, because it shows I have an imagination. And having an Imagination is what is necessary for IMAGINARIUM – right? If you haven’t checked
