My #WritersLife Goals

Ciao, amici! You ever have a weird thought pop into your head? Not sure why I’m asking. If you’re reading this, you’re either a reader or a writer (or both), and both categories of people are known for active imaginations. I’ve been thinking about my blog. A lot. Mostly the fact that life forced meContinue reading “My #WritersLife Goals”

A Word from Author Anne Miller

Ciao, amici. Today I’m happy to introduce a new-to-this-blog author. Please help me give a warm welcome to Anne Miller, who’s going to talk to us about her debut novel and her WIP. Take it away, Anne. The idea for The Last Photograph came to me back when I was in college, after I sawContinue reading “A Word from Author Anne Miller”

Celebrate Michelangelo’s Birthday with a Story

Ciao, amici! Today is a special day. March 6, 1475 was the birthday of none other than Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, a man so talented in so many things, he was known as il divino, or the divine one. The world has changed a lot in the 544 years since his birth, but theContinue reading “Celebrate Michelangelo’s Birthday with a Story”

Author Inspiration and Reflection

I think Fridays are coming faster and faster.  Especially as the year is winding down. Advent has started, the preparation season before Christmas, and I’m definitely preparing for many things. I am in a festive mood. I’m incredibly busy, but I’m also very happy. That’s one of the reasons why this quote spoke to meContinue reading “Author Inspiration and Reflection”

Author Inspiration and Reflection

Well, Thanksgiving’s over. The leftovers are (finally) gone. Family’s gone, too. This is one of my favorite quotes, because it reminds me to count my blessings, to rejoice in the positives, to appreciate the good things in life. If I let myself, I could easily wallow over not going back to Pennsylvania for the holidaysContinue reading “Author Inspiration and Reflection”

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

I’ve decided I’m going to analyze my writing week (every week) and share the motto that best fits what I experienced. This week, editing was a primary focus. Not because I was busy with editing clients, but because one of my novels had an editor I wasn’t happy with, and it finally caught up toContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

A Writer’s Ebbs and Flows

I think we, as writers, run hot and cold. At least, I do. Gosh, I hope I’m not the only one who isn’t constantly running at highest productivity. It’s probably healthy to have ebbs and flows, as much as we’d like to always have more flows than ebbs. Some slower productivity time lets us recharge forContinue reading “A Writer’s Ebbs and Flows”
