This week, my inspirational quote is a little different than usual. Father's Day is Sunday, so that's where my thoughts are---not on the week behind me, but on a day coming up. I've been blessed with many wonderful examples of fatherhood. My grandfather and my father were everything a girl could have asked for: strong, … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, everybody. Are you having a good week? I used to be a professor, and I currently write for two industry websites. Basically, I'm used to operating in teacher-mode. But this week, I started taking a mastermind class on backlist strategies for authors. I'm a student again! It's a refreshing change. I feel my horizons … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, everyone. Hope you're having a great week. Clearly, three-day weekends screw me up. All week long, I struggled to realize what day it was. Tuesday felt like Monday. I thought it was Thursday twice, neither time on Thursday. The only reason I'm getting this posted on time is that my daughter said something about … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Are you sick of me asking where the week went? I am. But I still can't believe how fast the days are passing. (I'd say I sound like an old lady, but my kids would agree too quickly. And enthusiastically.) Anyway, this week's post spoke to me because I spent a good chunk of my … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, everybody! I hope you had a great week. Mine, as always, was a busy one. In honor of the Royal Wedding, I chose a quote from Meghan Markle. Even though we're in different industries (I'm a writer and she's an actress --- well, probably not even that anymore), the quote applies. For that matter, … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

As promised, I'm back to the regular post this week. And here's my quote for you, via Neil Gaiman. Ah, Neil Gaiman. He knows his stuff. I had good days and bad this week. All told, though, I can't complain. I've recently downloaded Dragon, the dictation software, and if I can figure out all the … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Another week has flown by. Deadlines are looming, and my pulse is tripping. When I got sick Wednesday and lost a full day of production, I panicked. Then I took a deep breath. Things were what they were. I lost that budgeted time. I was five thousand words in the hole. I could moan about … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Happy Friday! What a week, huh? When I was considering this week's quote, two came to mind. If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I chose this one, instead: And here's why. The first quote, while humorous, makes God sound a … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

I hope you all had a nice Easter or Passover. And for those of you following the Eastern Orthodox calendar, wishing you a happy holiday this week. In addition to the Easter holiday, I had a birthday this week. I don't have the date on Facebook and try to keep it low key, so don't … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

I'm telling you, the days and weeks are flying faster and faster. We're almost a Palm Sunday, then Easter. I need a time machine. Anyway, this week's inspiration... This one spoke to me, and I'll admit I'm not much of a Hemingway fan. I do, however, write character-driven novels. And I strive to make all … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links
