Two weeks ago, I was the luckiest woman on earth, enjoying a writer’s retreat with some of my very best writer buds. I had been anticipating the trip for nearly two months with more glee than a kid waiting for Santa. In the back of my mind, I was a smidge worried that...

I have been on a writer's retreat for the last two days and today begins the third and final one for making the magic happen. I can't get over how many words and ideas I've managed to get on paper since I got here. I'm so grateful. It makes the money spent so well wort...

You know what? Normally, I write to keep from being sad. Unfortunately, I’ve been so sad lately that I have been unable to write. Two funerals in less than two weeks, terrorist attacks, officers targeted, and innocents murdered leave me feeling destroyed and terrified.

You know what? I'm putting my blog back on to my Wix website. Why? Because why wouldn't I add just one more freakin' thing to my plate? Why wouldn't I make things more difficult for myself? It's just what I do.
