Be Still, And Know

Be Still, And Know

My New Year’s resolution is a simple one. I vow to spend more time just being quiet, and listening. With my busy life, this is not easy. I have to carve out time to be totally quiet. There always seems to be noise. Even when there is no-one talking to me, or I can’t hear the television in […]

Most wonderful time of the year?

Most wonderful time of the year?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Is it for you? I know that with me I am running around trying to find the perfect something for each of the loved ones on my list. I am cleaning my house within an inch of antiseptic. I am traveling all over to various places to see […]

Conference Follow Through

Conference Follow Through

Did an agent or an editor request a query, proposal, or—be still my heart—your full manuscript at the conference you attended recently? Did you send what they requested? The second question may sound odd. But I hear the stats once: 7 out of 10 writers who received requests at conferences don’t follow through.  Why? Beats […]

Writing…Forever….

Writing…Forever….

It’s Thanksgiving, and it’s week three of National Write a Novel Month, aka Nanowrimo.  Which means, while I’m sitting trying to eek out my words for the day, thankful may not be my modus operandi. Oh my gosh, this is so hard. Maybe I should start adding really and very in front of some words. […]

The Reason for the Season-a Writer’s Perspective

The Reason for the Season-a Writer’s Perspective

Thanksgiving is a wonderful, uniquely American holiday. It’s pretty clear-cut. We pause to give credit where credit is due. We know that God has blessed us beyond measure, and we gather with friends and family to express it. Commercially, it has stayed above the fray, and except for that little parade thing in New York, […]

Libraries

Libraries

Libraries are where the readers are, so it makes sense for the author to speak at libraries. If an avid reader meets an author and halfway enjoys the book, that author has a fan for life. And some libraries pay authors for speaking engagements. Yes some library patrons—like my mother—will never buy a book. She […]
