Sharing Resources

This weekend was make-up melting weather but I made it outside of my air-conditioned space a few times for some extra exercise and to meet with my new literary friends again.  My meeting with them on Saturday lifted my heart.  A wide grin spread across my face when they looked at their 269 page manuscriptContinue reading “Sharing Resources”

Building Your Library

Remember, summer reading clubs as children? Sometimes, we need to create our own summer camp and get through the list of books that we never finished. I know all of you have your own pile at home as story tellers, writers, and content creators. Let’s make a change this summer to get through our pileContinue reading “Building Your Library”

The Way Home

Yesterday, I was driving home with the sun shining through the window and as soon as I put my visor down large, wet drops started to plop onto my car.  I thought someone turned on a sprinkler nearby but no spouts poured out of the fire hydrants.  Umbrellas popped up out of nowhere.  Temperatures reachedContinue reading “The Way Home”

The Little Editor Who Could

I finished my last round of editing for my two authors last night before our next meeting this weekend and I need to point out the benefits and limits of spell check. The one button on Micro Soft Word that helps authors catch typos improves our writing as we work through our novels, and hasContinue reading “The Little Editor Who Could”

Changing Your Scenery

This week the weather in Minnesota could fry an egg on our cars but there are cooler spots under trees, or places to dip our toes into cool water.  The highways are lined with campers and boats in toe on Friday and those at the offices are leaving earlier.  The thought of laying back onContinue reading “Changing Your Scenery”

Featured Artist of the Month!

Hold on everybody, another plate is going onto a spinner. I’m going to be a featured artist at The Art Shoppe in Minneapolis! I’m two weeks away from showing my artwork and having wall space in July and August. What’s one more deadline added into my schedule? Good thing I stayed up late last weekContinue reading “Featured Artist of the Month!”

Action In Motion

Friday is here and I’m one day away from my meeting with the committee members who will decide what’s going onto their wall space in during the month of July and August.  My paint brush is recovering from a quick frenzy of first layers for my new scheme of pastels. Swishes and strokes of pinksContinue reading “Action In Motion”

What’s On Your Billboard?

I’m an avid YouTube follower of Creators who create content of writing, art, and food. Last night I dozed off in the air conditioning after a long day and I woke up to #7Figuresquad in my suggested videos. Curiosity got the best of me and I’m always looking to brush up my skills. Running myContinue reading “What’s On Your Billboard?”

It’s a Circus Again!

To all my readers out there, I have come to the conclusion that I’m crazy. I put myself into another juggling act in the circus because I can’t shut off the creative side of my brain. I just signed myself up for creating new art pieces for July or August. The Art Shoppe in MidwestContinue reading “It’s a Circus Again!”
