There is Good In Every Day

Thursday Reminder… Not all days are good, but there’s something good in every day. Remembering this is another way I stay positive on rough days. If you’re having a rough day, take some time to find that something good. ~xoxo Marianne This is Post 52 of 100 as part of the #100DaysofMKAuthorLife.

Stay Beautiful

It’s time for W-Inspiration Wednesday… Sometimes you might have people in your life that tell you that you aren’t beautiful in a variety of ways. Today’s reminder is to tell yourself that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Because when no one around us will cheer for us, we need to cheer for ourselves. Stay beautiful, lovely readers! […]

Dreaming Big

I always keep my eye on the goal… When things get stressful as they are now (when I’m trying to finish up three books and do book release prep for a fourth, all while prepping for unexpected guests plus the day job), I always take time to remind myself of my goals. It might sound […]

Don’t Look Back

Time for another Winspiration Wednesday… I tend to do this. I’ll look back over things I did wrong or mistakes I made (in life and in writing). One of my personal goals this year was to keep looking forward, and I’m reminding myself about that today. I can’t change yesterday, but I can do my […]

Do More of What Makes You Happy

Just a quick reminder… It may not always be easy to find the time, but when you do you might feel a sense of balance in your life. I certainly feel that way about writing. That doesn’t mean I don’t get frustrated when a scene’s not coming together like I’d like it to, or angry […]

Weekend Progress – Week 6

So, how much progress did I make towards my goals this weekend? I accomplished both of my goals! I wasn’t sure I’d be able to do it, but I did. I was able to write more in Seaside Valleria 3 (not as much as I wanted, but every little bit counts). I was also able […]

Have a Good Day

Yesterday was a rough one… Super long day at the day job, followed by computer issues when I got home meant I got nothing done last night. I was basically up a lot of the night fixing the computer issues before I caught some sleep. But they seem to be fixed (yay!) and it’s going […]

Believe in You

Thursday thoughts… Believe in you! Believe you can make it through the rest of the week (we’re so close to the weekend). Believe in you! If you don’t believe you can achieve your goals, no one else will either. Believe in you! Believe you can finish that project, whatever it may be. You can do […]

W-Inspiration Wednesday Week 5

Time for W-Inspiration Wednesday… I have a LOT of goals. Some of them are small (read the new Kristen Ashley book), some of them larger (clean the house and somehow manage to keep it clean for at least a day), and some of them are grandiose (quit my day job so I can write full-time). […]

Little Things Make Big Days

Tuesday Reminder…. Even though you may not finish everything you set out to do each day, the point is that you are doing SOMETHING each day towards your goals. On Monday, I was able to write more in Seaside Valleria 3. Is it as much as I wanted? No, but writing a little each day […]
