What is my writing process & how can it work for you?

My writing process has developed over time. It is this very process that keeps me from ever experiencing writer’s block. How? Two key elements.

In this post, I’ll also let you know why I write and the two main projects I have happening now. I’d love some of your input to help with one of them.

A Little Strip of Coast Under Coconut Sky

There’s a little road that traces the edge of the sea along Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. It’s mostly unpaved, lots of potholes and makes for an extremely slow uncomfortable journey.

Go anyway. It’s more than worth it.

The rough and tumble bus ride brought me to this little piece of heaven. It inspired me and freed me. I can’t wait to go back.

Maybe you’ll even come with me one day soon.

Happy birthday to me! Have I got something for you!

This year on my birthday, I’m giving gifts instead of receiving. Yes, I’m giving away 10 one-on-one writing and mentoring sessions.

Read on to find out how you can get in on this!

How telling your story empowers you! Plus, I’ll tell you mine.

Each of us has a personal story that we tell and retell, not only to let others know who we are but to remind ourselves of our own value.

Our stories tell us where we’ve been which in turn guides us toward the future. I tell mine here! Now, will you share yours with me?

Home has many meanings; home floats

I often read definitions of people who travel vs those who don’t. Date a girl who travels. Travel when you’re young. On and on. We juxtapose being settled, in one place with living freely. I disagree with such distinctions.

But there is no place or time that means home. Instead, home floats. We can find it anywhere.

How-to find images for your blog without getting sued

When you need an image for your blog posts, do you Google then pick from whatever you find? Do that at your peril! You can be sued for using an image without permission.

There’s an easy way around finding yourself embroiled in legal action. Inside you’ll find 80+ sources of images, video and audio you can use on your blog plus an overview of how to search and attribute the author.

How To Transform Your First Draft Novel Into A Complete Book

You wrote the first draft of a book. Now what?

It takes a lot of energy and time to turn your first draft into a complete book. It’s no wonder so many people give up or avoid even starting.

These seven steps aren’t magic, but if you put in the time and work, you’ll find yourself with a finished book before you know it.

Read on to find out how.

Why failure is a key ingredient to succeed!

I recently received a rejection letter. Did it bother me? Of course it did.

But after years of writing, sending out submissions and putting my writing out there for others to accept or not, I’ve learned a little secret about rejection.

Read on to find out what I learned and what you can do to brave rejection and failure.

Accountability (not pizza). It’s what’s for dinner!

In December, I promised myself that I’d complete three specific goals by the end of January. I posted online and let everyone know my plans to hold myself accountable.

There may also be talk of other things, like babies, books and pizza. A little rant about pizza and a personal announcement of sorts.

Did I meet my goals?

P.S. I’ve posted a video and a downloadable text within for you to see and decide.

10 best books to make you eat, think and do differently in 2014

Some books stick with you long after you close the cover or put down your reader. They slosh around in your mind and over time, you realize that you see the world through the lens of what you’ve read.

These books do just that. They’ve excited my imagination, piqued my curiosity and changed the way I see the world around me.
