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 […]

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 […]

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay

Saturday was a rough one… I did not feel well at all. I think the stress of the day job and life over the last week just forced me to slow down on Saturday. When it comes to my health, I’ve learned to listen to my body. If it’s feeling exhausted, I take a nap […]

Weekend Progress – Week 4

So how did I do this weekend? Short answer: Not so great. Family drama sidelined me, so I’m reminding myself that progress not perfection is important. The weekend wasn’t a total wash, however. I did manage to write 5000 words in Seaside Valleria 3, mostly through dictation (I wrote more about that in a recent […]

Muse-ic Overload – Part 3

So, I’ve talked about my bitchy muse and how I tempt her back, but what happens when she comes back with TOO many ideas? Most people will tell you that you can’t have too many ideas. They generally would be right. Having ideas sparks creativity, which can help your brain figure out which project you’ll take […]
