New Year, New Dream

Happy New Year! Do you have things you want to accomplish in 2019?  Reading goals?  Writing goals?  Life goals? I love a new year – the chance to restart a challenge to ourselves that we may have fallen short of completing in the past, the opportunity to renew our dedication, reassess and see where we […]

My Second Favorite Word

Like many writers, I love words, and when I started pursuing publication yes quickly became my favorite word.  Yes, I like your pages. Yes, you are a Golden Heart Finalist.  Yes, I want to represent you.  Yes, I want to publish your book.  Yes, you are number one in the kindle store.  That yes feeling is a […]

The Ingredients of a Christmas Romance

Romances have often been accused of being formulaic, and Christmas romances?  Oh baby, those might be the most formulaic of all – but I still devour them every holiday season, both in book form and on the Hallmark Countdown to Christmas.  And I am certainly not the only one.  Those suckers are successful because they […]

POV for Beginners, Part 2

This… Is… Jeopardy!

I can’t spill any of the details yet, but I wanted to swing by with a drive-by post to say that I’m going to be on Jeopardy tonight!  Aaaahhhh!!! I’ll be back tomorrow to spill any details you want, but if you want to watch tonight and play along with insider info, see if you […]

The Definition of Done

A few weeks ago, I wrote about rewarding yourself to help train your brain to get into a productive, creative mode and the value of not moving the goalposts on yourself – but that can be easier said than done when you’re doing something as subjective as writing.   How many of you (like me) have finished […]
