Day 6…er…7 of the 7 Day Writing Challenge

Totally missed posting yesterday...moving on. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about what I want to do with my business. While I enjoy working with clients, in all honesty, I really want to write for myself, so am trying to come up with a plan to "escape". Most people would probably sneer and... Continue Reading →

Why You Cannot Give Up!

I've had enough of navel-gazing for a while... In fact, I'm quite sick of it. I'm still struggling with building up my copywriting business, still getting paid less than what I should be (my fault) and fighting the urge to give up. (Of course, there is the old monthly emotional roller-coaster thing that doesn't help!)... Continue Reading →

Been a few?

I've toyed with the idea a few times of just dropping this blog. It's sitting here...a testament to yet another thing I've started, but not finished...ugh! Consistency is not my forte'...at least when it comes to doing stuff for myself. I have finished my AWAI (American Writers & Artists, Inc.) copywriting course, got AWAI verified,...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm

I was reading an interesting article this morning about the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin.

What made me go "hmm, that's neat" was the following: Going to Pilate, he asked... Continue Reading →

Sidetracked Much?

If it's not something in my world sidetracking me, it's my own brain! Some work got done today, but not nearly as much as I'd wanted. This means, of course, that I'm stacked up into tomorrow. Sigh...at least it's not as nuts as last week! As for the sidetracking part...I've been thinking a lot lately about... Continue Reading →

The Sword of Damocles?

Although I'm not using the expression as the original meaning intended, in our modern vernacular, it seems to fit. Sometimes it feels like I've been placed under the "Sword of Damocles" - or rather, that I've placed myself there, by pushing myself to write every day. But what nonsense is this? I love to write....

Short story Number One

Yeah! Had a bit of an inspiration this weekend, wrote a flash fiction short story, and even submitted it to an online flash fiction paying market. The title is What's a Housewife to Do and is less than 800 words long, so obviously a flash fiction. Week two short story is now in progress - the plan... Continue Reading →

Still Humming Along…

Very little - maybe a sentence or two - on the story tonight. Oy...and I promised myself I'd make every effort to write one per week! Then, on top of that, I've got two client blogs to write tomorrow, plus 9 more to wrap up next week. Pressure much??? Arghhh!!! Ah well, off to bed... Continue Reading →
