Writing a novel first draft via Nanowrimo

Some of us have already ended Nanowrimo, and some of us are about to do so with the close of November. No matter if you have succeeded with the 50,000 words or not, we all have gotten SOMETHING on our work accomplished and isn’t that the whole purpose? This post is for those who are now holding that precious first draft. Rock on, you writer, you! GIVE IT A WHIRL I made my own story a nemesis this month by writing something from the seat of my pants, no outline, no idea what it would be. And it is a

Don’t quit working your day job, yet

Don’t quit working your day job, yet

It’s been a while now that I have been posting this blog and working toward a lifestyle reboot, using the Internet. Within the months, I’ve learned so much about running an online venture,  content marketing, and how to be profitable in all of it. Not only that, I’ve learned a lot about myself, as well. Although I love what I do, and feel very fortunate to be where I’m at today, working online does have it’s drawbacks. Now, you may be wondering why on earth I’m writing about reasons NOT to do what I am doing. Well, I think it’s noteworthy

Before you kick the bucket, you should know…

Recently, my daughter and I were discussing bucket lists. She said she has a mental one, nothing written down. I do too, but feel the need to begin writing it down as I seem to forget more than I remember these days. If you are like me, and want to address some things before you kick the bucket, maybe this post will help. I feel like I have spent my life seeking reality.

I KNOW Business, it’s true.

I KNOW Business, it’s true.

This is a sort of did you know post. Did you know, I am the owner of a small business? I am, and it feels great. Well, most of the year anyway. It is sort of seasonal. I operate VideoVision Entertainment, and it is nice to say that it’s been around since 1992. My business shoots video, edits videos, and provides memories that last a lifetime. But having a business can be hard when you are not a full-time employee. When we got started way back when camcorders were the size of a small bus, I imagined it as my
