My Dear Readers,

I’ve noticed quite a few people signing up to get blog notifications these days, and guiltily realized I haven’t posted a thing since last April. Time is precious, and when it came down to it I decided my time was better spent writing my books and connecting with readers.

Writing & Editing Resources

So this week I don’t feel like I have the energy to write a blog post. You know those days where you just feel ‘blah’ and have a hard time drumming up the drive to do anything? Yep, one of those days. It’s a perfectly normal, and human, thing to go through.

Writing Workshop Peggy DeKay & Cheri Powell

This past Saturday I went to an excellent writing workshop that not only equipped me with useful and empowering information, but also re-motivated me to work on my book. It was like creativity shock therapy to my muse!

They had two speakers: Peggy DeKay, award-winning author, freelance writer, blogger, podcaster, publisher, and book coach; and Cheri Powell, author, publisher, entrepreneur, and world traveler.
