Feeling a little overwhelmed…

If you’ve followed my blog you’ve heard me speak of my editor and assistant quite frequently. Well, it’s with a very proud, but sad heart that I do this post today. She’s also my niece and has worked with me for about 5 years. She’s been my right hand, my cover designer, my editor, my shoulder on many occasions, and my friend. 

She’s been accepted to the University of Georgia and will be leaving me. I’m so proud of her. She’s been going to college locally for 2 years. Now she’ll be moving to Athens, Georgia which is a couple of hours away. Her major is Poultry Sciences.

We have three more work days together and I feel like I have to get every cover designed for all the works in process. She’s reassured me that we’ll work via internet and phone. Also we’ve started up a publishing business as partners so we’ll be working long distance together.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very proud of her and this is her dream, but I’m sad to lose her. I know she’ll go really far and one day she’ll be at the top of her career. So this is a shout out to her. She’s amazing.

As always, good writing, and May God Bless You…

Cleaning out and clearing the mind…

Now that tax season is mostly over, I’m consumed with cleaning my office. Of course I have a lot of filing to do and general cleaning. My office literally looks like a storm blew through and that’s being nice 🙂

When I do a thorough cleaning it always makes me think clearer. As I clean and listen to songs on Pandora I think of the manuscripts that have been crying out for attention for a couple of months. Things pop up in my head and I keep my trusty notebook handy for just that reason. As I listen to songs they give me a feeling of nostalgia over the past year. I’m coming up on the anniversary of my first books publishing. It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year almost.

I’m excited about having the time to write now. It’s high time I finish my works in progress and clear out my mind for new projects. So if you’re having writers block or feel overwhelmed, then clean out an area that has been haunting you for a while. See if it doesn’t give you a clearer head. Just seeing the top of my desk makes me smile 🙂

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Boy it feels good to be back 🙂
