Ready or not #The RunningWriter


I’m ready for today. Are you?

It’s a matter of perspective and, this morning, I choose to have a great day today.

No matter what’s thrown at me, I will handle it.

So will you.

Let’s do this, my friends. You and me, together, we will conquer this day.

A peek into my crazy mind…#TheRunningWriter


Yep. There’s a look into my scary mind.

And no, it’s not scary that I get up at 4am to run. It’s scary that I need an alarm to remember to get into the shower.


I seriously lose hours when I’m writing. My characters keep chatting, changing directions, or just flat out talking up a storm. I legit forget to do things.

That’s why I have to set alarms. My hubby jokes that I need to set one to remember to breathe.

It’s not quite that chaotic in my head.


What are your little tricks to staying on task–and on time?

Stop. Breathe. Refocus. #TheRunningWriter


Mondays are hard for some people. Facing an uncertain job, jumping into the hustle-bustle of appointments and obligations, or dealing with scary health or life obstacles littering your path.

When I’m getting overwhelmed or scared I can get a bit obsessive on the bad things. I can view a day through, “Okay, what bad thing is going to happen today?” glasses.

But if I do that, then I’m looking for the bad things to happen.

Stop. Breathe. Refocus.

You are strong and you are capable. No matter what this Monday, or even the next hour, brings you, you will face it.

You will get through it.

You will be stronger for it.

So go out there and make it a great day.
