Author Inspiration and Two Weeks of Writing Links

Ciao, everybody. Sorry about last week. As you can see by my quote, I have family on my mind. My daughter is going back to school, so I’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible with her. Last week, we had guests in town, so it was all about company then. Honestly, I’ve done the barest minimum of work leading up to her departure. I’ll be toiling like crazy to catch up once she’s gone, but the sacrifice is worth it.

I’m so grateful my son goes to college in the town where we live, or I’d be a bigger basket case than I already am.

My apologies for no links last week. As I said, I was busy. Today, you’re getting last week’s and this week’s, so there’s a lot of great content.

As for me, I’m logging off now. My (no longer a baby) girl and I are going to catch up on World of Dance.

And remember Brad Henry’s words:

Families are the compass that guides us.
They are the inspiration to reach great heights
and our comfort when we occasionally falter.

Treasure your family, folks. Before you have to say goodbye.

And now, this week’s (and last week’s) writing links:

  1. Love World of Dance!
    I know how you’re feeling, my daughter and grandson just moved across the country so she could continue her graduate studies. My heart hurts, but also is swollen with pride.
    Enjoy your family time {{hugs}}

  2. What an amazing group of links, Staci. Thanks for including my link about using Amazon templates for publishing our book. My hair is starting to grow back. 😀 ❤

    • I know you did, Teri, and I’m sorry. But how could we regret this time? The days go by too fast. You made the right choice, and I did, too. No regrets at all. (A lot of sadness, even more pride—she’s a remarkable girl—but no regrets.)

      I’ll have my minor breakdown this weekend. Then it’s back to work Monday. With a vengeance.
