How do you do it? What you ask? Well for starters, help!

When you are writing your first draft and need someone to bounce ideas off of, or someone to say, “That doesn’t make sense.”

Some one who say, “You’re taking a wrong turn.” Or, “Your off track, explain to me what your trying to do here.”

Sometimes even hearing, “I really like this.”

I know, join a writing group. There are obligations to doing that. I never want to tell someone I am going to do something and then not follow through. I seriously don’t think I am the person who should be critiquing someone else.

Then there is the option of hiring an editor or someone who can provide the structure I need to get to where I’m going with the book. Not everyone is made of money. It’s paycheck to paycheck for some of us.

Of coarse you have friends and family, but they have lives, responsibilities and jobs of their own.

I love the ability to just put my work out their for my fellow bloggers to look at and critique if they wish.

I want to thank all of my followers and hopefully new followers, for taking taking the time to check out my site.

Happy writing today.


I found it quite funny that when I opened my eyes this morning the dread of having to do the same thing as yesterday and the day before that was just like the movie Groundhog Day.

Let’s don’t forget it is definitely Groundhog Day!

He saw his shadow this morning and according to the myth there will be six more weeks of winter.

Do you tend to believe in this? Many prefer to look at The Farmers Almanac instead. Is this a method you tend to refer to?

I mean seriously, if it’s sunny outside he is going to see his shadow and when it’s raining or cloudy he won’t. How stupid do they think we are?

Do you feel as if you’re living the same day over and over again? I for one certainly do!!!

I try to shake it up from time to time, changing the type of music I listen to or the order in which I do the things that need to be done. But, it’s still the same things over and over. Riding a ferris wheel that never stops.

I still can’t help but laugh that these thoughts hit me on Groundhog Day!


I find that saying the word no to the ones I love is absolutely impossible. Finding time to devote to myself and the things I love has dwindled down to mere minutes.

A long hot bath, a book I can’t put down, or just a few moments to close my eyes seems completely impossible.

Helping others is what I do. How do you turn that instinct off? Do I devote certain days to just myself or are there enough hours in the day to do everything?

Trying to go to sleep, completely exhausted from the day devoted to others, inspiration hits and I see that one detail that I needed to move my book forward. Do I get up and write or do I close my eyes again and just let sleep consume me.??

Time and the word No seem to go hand in hand.

How do you tackle the word No?




I sit and cry, my space being filled with the tears of frustration and loneliness.

I sit and cry wondering if time spent on others will bring time spent on me.

I sit and cry, feeling the struggles and suffering of others.

I sit and cry reading the brilliant works of others.

I sit and cry only wanting what I have worked and strive so hard to accomplish.

I sit and cry thankful that the sun came up today.

I sit and cry that I have been given one more day to do the things I love.

I sit and cry that YOU are reading this post today.


Asking for help and support is one area I don’t excel in. When I started writing g my book and this blog, I reached outside my comfort zone and did just that. I asked only for support.

The drama, food choices, and vacations of others draws more attention, but why? The hours spent looking g at these things by friends and family trumps a moment of clicking on your blog and showing support, but why?

Trying to stand out and become a one of a kind is harder than most realize. It’s the same as writing your first book and your friends and family don’t buy it in support rather they like the book or not.

When trying to reach these goals and dreams do you, should you, ask for that support? Is it realistic to expect these things from friends and family?

Please show your support and leave a response to your fellow writer in the comments section.
