Review and Resources—Writing

Developing the habit of writing for an hour as soon as I wake up has become one of the things that I truly look forward to each day. I have had the opportunity to learn so much about various topics, to express myself creatively, and to learn self-discipline. As I continue to write, there areContinue reading “Review and Resources—Writing”

Be Organized

Never think of writing posts as merely scribbling down yet another article just because everyone else does and then hoping that readers other than you actually read it…as if it were another Facebook post… Think of your blog as a major, nationally-published magazine written by yourself for yourself…you are its most faithful reader…you are itsContinue reading “Be Organized”

Be Interesting

Perhaps the most important thing that you consider as you write is actually not that you write often and have much to offer, but that your writing is interesting.

So You Want To “Be” a Writer

Over the last year I have spent the first hour of each day writing…writing this so-called blog, writing in my journal, writing in my Happy Planner, writing in my journaling Bible, or writing on any other paper that might be within hand’s reach first thing in the morning. Writing has now become such an ingrainedContinue reading “So You Want To “Be” a Writer”

Now What?!…Figuring Out What IS Your “Now What?!”

(image) Life is a journey with both valleys and mountains along the way. Sometimes the top of the mountain seems so high that you simply want to give up altogether. Sometimes you slip and fall, and may lose your grips. Sometimes you may not feel like you have the strength and courage to get backContinue reading “Now What?!…Figuring Out What IS Your “Now What?!””

The “About Me” Blog Page

(posting this here because I just updated my “about me” page today and wanted to see if I could get any feedback, positive or negative, about what I have written, as I start reworking my site… …yes, I do know that’s not me, just the me that I aspire to be perhaps… …no, not offContinue reading “The “About Me” Blog Page”
