Here is a reminder that your words will inspire someone one day. You don’t have to reach thousands or millions of people to make your mark on the world. Your words can change lives without being popular. A bestseller. No matter how many people your words reach, they are powerful. They are important and worthy … Continue reading Reminder to keep going
Writers—myself included—seem to stare at a clock, wondering if we're writing fast enough, if we're hitting our goals on time, etc. But we often forget that life isn't a race, and neither is writing. You are amazing whether you write five words or over a thousand words today. It doesn't matter how fast you get … Continue reading A reminder for writers: time edition
NaNoWriMo—National Novel Writing Month—is about a month away. If you don't know what that is, here's a link to an explanation. It’s probably the writing community’s most productive time of the year.

No one can do something every day of their life without getting bored or losing energy. Remember to schedule in a nice healthy break every once in a while. You deserve it.
