Join me each week as I share my writing journey, writing tips, and intimate talks with my writer friends and authors, sharing their struggles and triumphs of writing that first draft, to the ins and outs of editing and publishing their books.

When Life Happens
When Life Happens, and it does, but as a writer you can take the storm of your journey and bank your experiences. You can apply your emotions, your demeanor, and general observations for a future story. You can also use these experiences to develop your character’s personality as to how they will react when life happens.

Perfection Isn't Your Friend
Free yourself from perfection, is a message I want to share with my audience. I struggle with perfection every day by trying to make my creative endeavors as flawless as possible, which includes my daily writings, a constant update to my website, and even my podcast interviews. Perfection causes me more stress than necessary. I can't finish what I started because I'm constantly going back changing and deleting my work in order to make it better than before. And it's okay to give your best in all that you do. But when you're obsessed in doing your best, perfection slows your progress, and robs you of your successful endeavors.  I challenge you to embrace and celebrate your IMPERFECTIONS, and keep pushing forward.
