Side Notes

I made a few alterations to Frankly, My Dear… and I think it’s a much better fit now!

I’m so excited at the way things are going; and they’re just going to keep getting better. Last week the planets aligned to put me in a better attitude and from those events (which I’ll blog about later this week), a new self-confidence was born!

I’m always at my best when I’m writing. I mean, really writing. Not just making notes but really working on getting a project closer to being finished. In the last week, I’ve grabbed that bull by the … read the rest. . .

“What’s the Word?” Wednesday [Blog Hop]: July 4, 2012

But in general terms, “Independence” means freedom, liberty, self-reliance.

What’s the Word? Wednesday: May 2, 2012

It’s the second day of the month and I’m happy to announce I’ve kept up with most of my monthly goals so far. I’ve blogged every day (twice yesterday!) and I have another one in my head for today already.

I made a list of monthly goals, and what short term goals I need to achieve in order to reach the bigger ones. This is due to some great advice I read in my books from Institute of Children’s Literature. It’s so inspiring, informative, and instructional. I really can’t wait to read more today!

I don’t have any theme for … read the rest. . .

I’ll link up a few of my favorite posts from the past few months to give you a taste of my writing styles. I’ve been lucky enough to be featured a few times on, so I … read the rest. . .
