Yeah, I swore I’d never do another Nano. Yeah, I asked someone to kick me if I mentioned it again. Yeah, I’m trying it again. And the big reason is because I finally finished One Small Touch. (Disclaimer: by finished I mean I’ve sent it off to my editor. I’ve not done the final edits [...]
It’s not the clothes she wears or the cut of her hair. It’s not the job she does or the child she was. Its the look in her eyes so calm and so wise. That makes her a woman. It’s the confidence to say at the end of the day ‘I did it my way [...]
The mind is a funny place. Our insecurities, desires and expectations can inspire us one moment and toss us into despair the next. Self-doubt and fear of failure are my particular bugaboos.

Here’s a snapshot of what an hour or so of writing is like for me. Feel free to laugh, I know I do. 2:00 – Sit down to write. Absently pick up my cup to take a drink while I focus on where I’m at in the story. The cup is empty. Head to the [...]
Today’s my birthday. Time to shed bad habits and create new ones. Time to let go of toxic relationships, toxic thoughts and toxic emotions. Time to let go of fear of failure. Time to stop thinking and start doing. Time to move towards my goals instead of wishing they were closer. It’s time.
