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

Hiking Trip part five – the waterfall

Hiking Trip part five – the waterfall

Last day: the waterfall Last time we met, I was checking out an old 1800s cemetary. There was so much spookiness on those grounds, even Stephen King would have enjoyed it. I hope to get to go back some day and let my writing mind take over. It’s hard to do that when you are so filled with fresh air and excitement as I was from the hike.

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. Those people who like sitting back and using the social media circles to make friends and influence people. I ain’t mad at ya, as the young folks say. There are the group of social media writers or SMW who like the fact

Boost your book sales, get readers

Boost your book sales, get readers

We are writers. We have talent. And of that talent, there are many facets. One such facet of our talents, when honed to a fine point, will give you a significant edge that will result in better book sales. And this talent will increase your awareness of what readers want,  and give you assertiveness that very few people have. This talent is something that very few writers can perform, and most of them don’t even want to try. And the really interesting thing is: you have an advantage on EVERY OTHER WRITER when you unleash this talent. WHAT IS THIS
