Organizing your writing…

I know how hard it is to organize things. Believe me when I say, time is precious. So, that’s why organization is important. Here’s how I set up my 2019 writing schedule.

Over the years I’ve tried to organize my writing schedule and I always overdid it. My expectations were way over what I could manage. I didn’t leave any working room, so if something happened and I got off schedule, well, the whole schedule was off. But this time, I gave myself some breathing room.

Now, don’t think I won’t be writing everyday, because I will, but my word counts are smaller and the deadlines are a little longer. It helps to keep me on task. And on top of that, it helps that my assistant knows my busy schedule, so she made sure I didn’t overdo it.

So, now I’m scheduled all the way through August 2019. The funny thing is, now I have a little extra time to post here and keep up with my promotions. It’s a win-win!

So, how do you keep up with your writing?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S.: With my schedule done, I have several preorders coming up, starting with this one:

It’s the last book in the Sky Ridge Series and you don’t want to miss it…

Christmas Romance…

Good Monday morning! This picture makes me feel all cozy and Christmasy! Yes, I know, that’s not a word, but it’s a feeling. So, who likes a Christmas Romance.

Ok, so who doesn’t love a great love story with the warm, fuzzy feeling and don’t forget the Happily Ever After… I’m a big sap for all the Christmas movies on right now. Even those I’ve seen every year, I still watch them every year. It’s just something I love and it makes my Christmas spirit soar through the roof.

Now, as for writing Christmas romance there is no set way to do it, but it needs a happy ending. I read Christmas romances all year long, but some people only read them at this time of year. Why? Well, some are superstitious and others say that they can only get into them when it’s the season. But not me. 

My Christmas romance that was published a month ago inspired me to be more joyful this year. It is filled with the Christmas spirit. As I wrote it, the weather outside was hot and humid, nowhere near Christmas weather, but I channeled my mind to think it was cold outside. A couple of times while I was writing it, I drank hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows (how else would you drink it). 

If you haven’t checked out Holly Cottage – Where the Magic Begins, then grab a copy today. I promise you it will inspire you to deck the halls and make Christmas cookies. 

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

A Christmas Romance that will bring back the spirit of Christmas!

The book that started it all…

Good Thursday morning!

My writing life started when I was a young teenager and I picked up the romance novel that made my fingers itch to put words on paper. And that novel was Remembrance by Danielle Steel. After reading it, I began to devour her books, one by one. This also started my obsession with reading romance and writing it. I still have my collection of her books and the Harlequin books that I’ve gotten over the years. 

It’s amazing what an impact that a book can have on you. I’m so glad that I picked up that book in the second hand store. I just wish I’d thought about publishing my work a long time ago, but maybe it wasn’t time yet. 

So, what inspired you to start writing? If you’d like to tell your story on my blog, just let me know.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S. : If you’ve never read one of Danielle Steel’s books, then I suggest you start with this one.
