Sunday Evening Thoughts

Why are Sunday evenings so hard on us? For one, we know Monday is just hours away and our weekend is almost over. But why do we let it take away from the joy of those last hours of our time off?

I love to write on Sunday evening. It’s like my mind begins to just speed up as though it too knows that the work week is about to begin. I do tend to get in my best word counts on Sunday evening. Strange…

And if you’ve had a busy weekend, you sit and wish for just one more day to rest and recoup from the craziness. Let’s just face it, Monday’s come whether we wish for them to wait a little longer or not. Sunday evening should be spent enjoying life because it’s still the weekend until that alarm clock goes off on Monday morning. So, focus on family, writing, or whatever makes you happy.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Tuesday Teaser – The Journal

It’s time for a Tuesday Teaser. This week I’m teasing you with a new series that will start releasing this summer. It’s call The Journal.

So, what is the series about you might ask? This series will be a Time Travel Romance series that will take you on many adventures. You will spend time in medieval times with knights, in the old west with handsome cowboys, and many other places in time. You’ll find out in the first book what causes this time warp. It will be fun, exciting and romantic, so keep watching for the cover reveal that will be coming soon for ‘The Knight of Her Heart’, the first book in the series.

Here’s a sneak peak at the series header:

Monday Writing Tips

Now, on to today’s writing tip. You know when you have a story in your head, but you have a deadline looming on another story. Yeah, that’s a problem for a writer. But I have a solution, one that helps me out.

Good morning! I do hope everyone had a great weekend. For me, it was awesome.

When a new story idea comes into my brain, I have to get some of the idea down on paper or it will interrupt my other work. So, this is my tip. Give yourself at thirty minutes to write it down or put down an outline. Once you’ve given the new story a voice, it will help you to get back to the previous piece of work. Trust me, it helps.

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

Good Monday morning! Can you believe it’s New Year’s Eve? Wow, it’s been a fast, and exciting year. So, what are you sending out? What do I mean, well lend an ear…

On New Year’s Eve, we promise to leave old habits behind and make new ones. Of course, by the end of January, we’ve usually given up on our promises. But, this year, I’ve already set in place some of mine… Here are my writing promises and resolutions…

I’ve already got my writing schedule completed for 2019 and my preorders ready to schedule. This new year will be my year of change as far as my writing goes. I’m more organized and I plan to push further in my writing career. 2018 has been an amazing year for my writing and I hope the trend continues for the new year.

So, what are your promises for the new year?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You in the new year!

Saturday laziness…More Coffee!

It’s Saturday and time to take a moment to just sip my coffee, check my stats and just be… Of course I have plenty to do, but it might take another cup of coffee to get me up and going. So what’s up with you this beautiful morning?

So, as I amble through my social media, it reminds me that I need to set up my automatic ads for the week, write a couple thousand words today, clean house and do laundry. But, well… Yep, I think another cup of coffee is waiting for me. Then maybe I’ll get started on my list.

So, great writing and May God Bless You…

Be lazy for a moment and just be… It’s good for the soul. Don’t forget the coffee or tea, whichever is your go to!  HAPPY SATURDAY!

Writing from your heart…

Good morning! It’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve been super busy getting my latest manuscript finished and sent to my editor. I want to share with you what I’ve learned over the last couple of months while working on my newest project.

1: Write what’s in your heart. Don’t let others tell you what you can and can’t write, all that does is tamp down your inner voice. So, fill your pages with what your heart gives you and trust it.

2. Give your writing all that you have. When you get done writing each day, you should feel drained because you’ve put everything into it, but also feel accomplished because you’ve given your muse free reign.

3. Never write something that doesn’t feel right. If it doesn’t feel right, then it shouldn’t be put on paper. Go with your instinct.

SO, do you write from your heart? That’s what I did with the manuscript I just finished. I’m satisfied with the results, which is surprising because I always have that little doubt with each piece of work. But not this time.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
