Mondays, Memories…Coffee!

Good Monday morning! Why are Monday’s so hard? I think somehow the weekends have grown shorter or is that just me?

Yesterday, I took a short walk outside. It was short due to the high pollen count outside. My allergies are not fans of pollen. But, anyhow, as I walked I saw the two things in the pictures above. As a country girl, these two items are part of my pleasant childhood memories. The dandelions were fun to blow on, sending the little fluffy white seeds floating into the sky, of course as children, we didn’t know we were spreading the flowers everywhere. Then, of course, there were mad searches in among the patches of clover for the elusive 4-leaf clover. I’ve found a couple in my lifetime, which usually ended in a wish. But the memories are heartwarming. It makes me sad that children today, for the most part, don’t take part in this kind of fun.

Several of you have emailed me, asking about my latest manuscript. Well, I can tell you that the first half is in the capable hands of my editor. I’m working on the second half, which is exciting. As you know, I outline, so I’m seeing the ending coming and all I can say is, it’s different from anything I’ve published thus far. So, keep watching for release dates and snippets, which are coming…

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S.: It’s Monday, so grab an extra cup of coffee for the road.

Friday’s Ramblings…


Good Friday morning! Yay… It’s finally Friday!

So, we’ve worked all week to get to this day, but what are we planning? Why might I ask? Well, someone made a good point the other day and I’ve taken it to heart. They said that we look forward to the weekend, but why if we just do more work and don’t get in a little fun time? It made me think…

On Saturday morning, I spend the morning cleaning my house but wouldn’t it be nice if I incorporated the cleaning into my weekday mornings so that on Saturday morning I could, let’s say, write…  So, with that in mind, I made a list of my cleaning duties and have separated them by the weekdays. With it separated it actually makes for less time each day. Then I can spend my Saturday mornings doing something fun. Oh, and don’t forget to spend some time with your family, it’s important for our mental health.

So, what about you? How can you make your weekends more fun and relaxing? Writing perhaps?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Research is fun…

Good morning! I’m enjoying a little research this morning. What, you might ask, am I researching? Well, as a romance writer, reading and watching romance is important to keep my inspiration going.

So, I’ve started a series on Netflix that has been pulling at me for a while. ‘When Calls the Heart’, is my new binge watch. This is a great series to watch if you’re into writing romance as it keeps your creative mind active.

This series is interesting with many elements, romance, history, mystery, and drama. I’m enjoying this research very much.

So, what is your current research?

Rainy morning in Georgia…


Good morning! Why is it so hard to get awake on a rainy morning? Could it be that it’s dark and dreary outside? Maybe… I’m thinking it will take several cups of coffee to get me moving today.

As for my day, I’ve got many appointments scheduled today, so waking up is crucial. And then there’s my word count for the day to be met, but we’ll see if it happens before I walk to the office.

So, without further procrastination, I’ll slip on my writer’s hat. Have a great day!

As always, great writing and May God Bless You…

I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from my upcoming release…

Let the light in…


Good Tuesday morning! Grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a beautiful morning!

After a short stint of writer’s block, the words are flowing in. As I told you in a previous post, the outlining part of Scrivener has helped. I’m keeping my focus and know where the story is going. Actually, the process is making it flow faster than ever. Not to mention, I’m not straying off on little detours that will derail the story.

I feel like the light has been let in and everything is clear. It’s a great feeling and I can’t wait to share this story with everyone. So, have you let the light shine in on your story yet. Tell me about your breakthroughs in writing.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

It’s Friday!


Good Friday morning! Wow, what a busy week. I’m so ready for the weekend, even though I’ll be in my accounting office most of it, but sleeping late in the morning is on my schedule.

The weather here in Georgia is fabulous at the moment and totally out of season, but I’m not complaining. It does make it hard to stay inside the office when the sun is shining and the days are warm. I keep telling myself that I live in Georgia and that means winter is not over yet. Hoping winter doesn’t come back in like a lion…

So, what are your plans this weekend? Any writing in those plans? If you’re like me, there’s always writing in your plans 😉

So, good writing and May God Bless You…
