Pinterest

So, this week I discovered Pinterest. Ok, so I’ve had a Pinterest account for a while now but I never did anything with it. If I needed pictures for my series I just saved them to a folder on my computer. Last week I signed up for an editorial review in June. There’s nothing like […]

This Week

This Week

I thought I’d give an update and then see how you guys were doing. Remember, It’s only Wednesday. We still have time to make some progress! This week I’ve been writing summaries of every chapter in my book on index cards and pinning them to my corkboard. I’ve been trying to get a better feel […]

Launch!

Launch!

Toward the end of last year, I hinted about upcoming projects I was going to be unveiling on my website. Well, that time has come!

Afraid to Begin

Afraid to Begin

You know what you need to do. I sigh and continue scrolling down the page on my laptop. I’m getting pretty good at ignoring my conscience, at least when it comes to my WIP. You are wasting precious time. I groan. My conscience isn’t letting up. I look across the room. My manuscript is sitting […]

The Importance of Hiring an Editor

The Importance of Hiring an Editor

The other day I looked up some writing jobs on Craigslist. I just thought I’d see what was out there and maybe try to make a few extra bucks working from home. I filled out a couple applications and contacted a couple people. One opportunity came up that seems like fun. It’s a collaborative writing […]
