TEN THINGS I’VE LEARNED IN 2020 Ten Things that I’ve Learned in 2020 during the Pandemic Everyone will likely have a list like this to look back on in their journals and on their personal blogs. Here’s mine: 1. Surviving cancer does not mean you don’t have to take care of yourself in every way.

Monthly update-what’s happening

Monthly update-what’s happening

I did not intend on only updating my blog once a month, but this is how it is for now. Being in a pandemic has taken its toll. I know you understand and have been very patient.

Writing, a business you say?

But, no, not business writing! Here I am again, writing on my blog for the third time this week. What is WRONG with me???? (I think it is insomnia, really) But I am committed to putting out some new content this year. That includes blogging, books, etc. So, hang with me for a minute. So, you have likely heard (even from me!) that writing is not just art. It is also a business by many these days.
