#WriteOnFriday ~ More Quotable Quotes

A few of the gems that have brightened my world this week and helped propel me forward through a long and rough bout of writer’s block as well as the general overwhelming sensations of life.  

#WriteOnFriday ~ Quotable Quotes

True confession time again, my lovelies! I am a quote whore. I adore quotes and do my damndest to remember them accurately and attribute them correctly. Call it leftovers from my days as a scrapbooking fiend because quotes play a huge role in the craft of piecing together random strips of paper with stickers and…

#WriteOnFriday ~ Silence

Writing can be a noisy process. There are many times you have multiple characters vying for attention and they will happily scream over one another in order to get it. An annoying cacophony of voices begging for their stories to be told first! <insert pouty foot stomp here> And they are not going to take…

#WriteOnFriday ~ The Little Things

Rejections hurt and make you question your ability and gift. A good support system is essential.   But your cheerleaders aren’t just there when you…

#WriteOnFriday The one where I fall apart…

This is where I date myself. Not date myself in the wine and roses and happy ending way (although I’d be a sure thing, so it’s not a bad idea), but a “lemme show you how old I am” kind of way. Who remembers TGIF? Always had THE BEST shows, right? When you were younger…

#WriteOnFriday

A weekly addition to my little home in cyberspace is #WriteOnFriday. My chance to encourage all of the writers slogging along this journey to publication. No matter where you are on that road, you will inevitably hit a low point. We all do. Here’s a little pick-me-up from me to you… and now you can…
