    Project Inspire {encourage others in their writing journey}

    This is something I’ve had on my mind for a while.  Something that I think would spread inspiration and encouragement to writers across the blogosphere. This is kind of like a tag, but it’s a little different. It’s not so much like a fun series of questions. It’s an opportunity to take part in a mission to appreciate, inspire, encourage, and simply spread love to writers everywhere. Did someone inspire you to write the book you’re writing right now? Was someone the sole cheerleader for that one project? Did one person (even without knowing) provide encouragement and motivation for you when the going got tough? Do you have a message…

    Strange Things Writers Do + 20-Question Book Tag

    Writers are unique beings. And just downright strange to the outside world. *sighs* They’ll never understand our uniquely complicated and intelligent minds. 😛 Here’s several things that writers do, that, uh…may seem a little creepy to passersby. 😉   #1: People watch Anyone I’ve told that I do this, I read this in their facial expression: People watch? Like…stalking? That’s kinda weird. And creepy. She just sits in a corner and watches people?!  And meanwhile I am smiling and nodding, adding to their comfort. 😛 Dear world, Yes, writers people watch. Not in a creepy way (*cough*usually*cough*). We just observe life, conversations, and how people interact. We often find character inspiration from the strangers…

    What Does Being a Successful Writer Look Like to You?

    We all want to be successful. In some way, somehow, we want to make a difference in this world. We want one (or all) of our ventures to turn out right. But what do we mean by success? What does it mean to be a successful writer to you? Take a look at both of these stories, and decide which view of success you’d prefer… ***** Jamie clamped her hands over her mouth to muffle her squeal. I can’t believe it! I just can’t believe it! She launched out of her office chair, trying to be as quiet as she could as she jumped around the room. Her computer screen glowed into the…

    Hello, 2019!

    Whoah… 2019 is…here? Already? 2018 seemed to pass by in a blur, leaving my in a daze that we’re already in the year 2019. I’m posting this at midnight, right smack at the beginning of the new year (though the time may be different for you, if you’re in a different time zone 😉 ). But I thought I’d write a quick post about my New Years goals and resolutions. I might do an end-of-the-year-look-at-what-I-actually-accomplished-from-this-post-of-goals thingy at the end of this year, but we’ll see. 🙂 Here are some of my goals and resolutions for 2019: Eat healthier. I feel like I’ve been putting too much sugar into my body. And…

    Self-Care for Writers {stay inspired, creative, & feeling great}

    2019 is only a few days away, so let’s kick-off the year feelin’ good! 😉 The new year is the perfect time to make resolutions and goals, so why not add another to the list: self-care.  It’s so. easy. for writers to forget about self-care. Especially if writing is just a hobby (not a career), we don’t always take the self-care part seriously. But I for one, plan on writing the rest of my life. I’m sure you’d like to too. 😉 That’s a long time. A lot of hours at a desk, on your bed, or wherever else. Writing, writing, writing. Doing anything with this much consistency is bound to wear on…
