The day after the fourth of July

It’s July Fifth, feels a lot like Monday, and hot out. The air is a sticky gray, and I somehow made it to work. I can’t even remember dressing in the bathroom. I swore when I left my house that I was going to be careful because driving while barely awake is dangerous. With the days’s food piled in my lunchbag, I walked inside the building.

Mini-con wrapup

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!

The Best Way to Stop Worry

Not long ago I posted about my business(es) and how I know business like nobody’s business. Well, that is true, but still, I am not a complete winner. Yes, as I hang my head, I have failed at stuff.

Yet, for me, failure is no long an option. I cannot afford to fail any longer but I refuse to worry about making a

Goals and what they mean to you

Goals and what they mean to you

Goals and what they might mean to you Have you ever noticed words inside of words? I have. Like GOALS – it has the word GO in it. And DIET has the word DIE in it. Yeah, well, I never promised you I wasn’t a weirdo. But, we do play mind games with ourselves sometimes (like seeing words in words!) If you are like me, seeing GO in GOALS made me a little more motivated. I wanted to share with you.
