    Making an Action Dream Board

    Happy New Year, my friends! A new year is now here. Time for a fresh start, resolutions, and setting goals. Everyone has their own ideas about resolutions and goal setting and I’m not going to claim to be an expert on those things. I will, however, be trying out a dream (vision) board to see how well they work. I’ve heard them called action boards with the hopes that you’ll be spurred into action instead of just dreaming.

    Editing everything

                          Well, it’s a long-time-no-post situation. Thank you for your patience. I am currently working on re-writing my story ending but may still choose an earlier version.

Thank you…

    Changes Are Coming

    Richard_Carter via Visual hunt / CC BY-NC Over this next month many things are changing. I am starting up a newsletter about my writing, publishing ups and downs, and free writing samples from my debut novel. I am getting excited and feeling a bit frustrated due to things not running as smoothly as I would have liked. Don’t worry. I am not discouraged. I think I may have signed up for a bit too many sites that are supposed to help me achieve all my marketing dreams. I am unsure if some of these are leading me down the right path for me or not, but it’s worth a try. If…
