Putting on the Editor Hat

I’m out of wearing a spring coat up here in Minnesota and life just got a little busier. My meet-up last weekend turned into a paid project to help two other authors get their book ready to publish. I received their 75,000 word story during the middle of the week and it’s a tear jerker.Continue reading “Putting on the Editor Hat”

Walk in the Rain

This week Minneapolis turned into a little Seattle with drizzling, wet, rainy days. Something in the air changed as the hot air was pushed down into the wet earth, and it was as if my body sensed this subtle shift. My eyes closed as I walked down the street in my orange umbrella and IContinue reading “Walk in the Rain”

Brain Power

I was working on my next journal which will include ways to improve creativity and feel inspired when I realized something. There are times we do go blank, and it’s not out of lack of discipline. Maybe we just have too much going on. Instead of getting frustrated (my past self), stop and listen toContinue reading “Brain Power”

Making Movie Night Productive

Last night was Turkish movie night, and I found a new series called Love 101 where delinquent students are one step away from being kicked out of school. One vote keeps the head principal from kicking them out and they team up come up with a plan to keep that one vote at the school.Continue reading “Making Movie Night Productive”

The Night Muses

My excitement about the new project made for a restless night. As soon as I laid my head down, more and more ideas for books filled my mind until I got out of bed and make the trip down the hallway to my writing writing desk. My muses took over and wouldn’t let me sleepContinue reading “The Night Muses”

Writer’s Meet-Up

Monday is here and I’m still feeling inspired from my weekend meet-up with two fellow authors. They wanted to meet to decide the best route to go when it comes to publishing. We started with traditional publishing and finding an agent. I asked if they wanted to wait and go through the whole experience ofContinue reading “Writer’s Meet-Up”

What is a UFO Today?

Last night was a first as a foodie. I watched a YouTube video of a restaurant chain in South Korea and they make burgers in the shape of UFO’s. There was something inside that growled and immediately wanted to try the spaceship looking burgers. Meat, tomato, lettuce, cheese and sauces are pressed down into aContinue reading “What is a UFO Today?”

Pen Pals

What would this week be without some Writer’s Block help? I remember working on a story that I was going to set in San Francisco about a decade ago and the storyline was falling flat. I had piles and piles of dialogue that lead absolutely nowhere. This was supposed to be about a romantic chase,Continue reading “Pen Pals”

Living the Life of a Writer

Yesterday, our golden week came to an end with my husbands birthday. Our birthdays are five days apart and we spend time celebrating together. This year our gifts spread out over several days and we made excuses for one more birthday dinner. I’ve come to one conclusion after this experience, we all need more thanContinue reading “Living the Life of a Writer”
