Top Ten Movie Blogfest

Alex is hosting a fun TOP TEN MOVIE countdown blogfest. When I saw it was movies, I had to jump in. I’m all about the movies. ~~~~~ I love movies and for the entire month of February I think I watched about 3-5 per day. No, I’m not crazy or anything, I was just recovery from a big surgery, so I had a lot of down time. Yet I was just too doped up on pain meds to concentrate much to read books. So, movies were the stand in. And…I had a few “GO TO” movies to help pass the[…]

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group

Thanks to Alex J Cavanaugh for this monthly meme.   Writing is a crazy journey filled with ups, downs, curves and cliffs. I leapt off a couple of cliffs recently when it comes to the writing world.  Awaited released May 1st: It’s my sophomore release–that’s nerve wracking in itself–not to mention the thoughts that roared through my head on release day. “Will people like it more/less than Wasteland?” “Will it flop?”…you get the drift.  Prelude to Darkness released May 7th: As if ONE release wasn’t enough…a little short story released as well. It’s Wasteland point five. A prequel to book one.  ***bites[…]

Insecure Writer’s Support Group

Thanks, Alex, for hosting this round of Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I have to say, Alex is one of the most supportive people out there. If you don’t follow his blog, head over there now.  You won’t be sorry.  I found this AWESOME quote the other day and thought it would be perfect for today’s post. And really, it applies to anyone, not just writers.  “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” –Mark Twain Now, doesn’t that quote just[…]

Insecure Writers Support Group

Alex has this cool, monthly post called The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I love this idea–and not just for writers, either–for everyone. I mean, who couldn’t use an encouraging word, pat on the back, or hug (even cyber hugs). As an author/writer I often worry about things such as who likes my book, who doesn’t, why don’t they–but then I mentally slap myself and remember very key advice I’ve received on this journey: “You can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you or your writing style.” It’s so true. I know I don’t like every single book I pick up[…]
