NaNoWriMo 2016

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Every October a wonderful writing even occurs throughout the United States called NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month. The purpose is to get you to write the first or rough draft of an entire 50,000 (minimum) word novel in just thirty days. This is by no means an easy task. Most people are just coming down from their Halloween induced sugar high and are less than motivated, plus right there towards the end you have Thanksgiving and Black Friday with all their glorious distractions and excuses at the ready for why you as an author aren’t writing. Last […]

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel. Last year I participated in NaNoWriMo and found that it really helped keep me on track with the project I was working on, which later became my first novel, Remembering Lauren.

Book Review: Letting Go of the Person You Used To Be

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Book Review

I picked up this book at a time when I was very low. In the last couple of years, I lost a child and a best friend unexpectedly. Even as a Buddhist, I struggle with accepting the change that both these events brought. I still struggle today. I found the book to be very helpful for me personally. I enjoyed practicing the meditations and doing the exercises. I found them very comforting. Does it contain a magic pill that will make everything in your life suddenly okay? Of course not. However, if you are looking for different ways to look […]

Love146.Org – Helping Exploited Children

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Organization/Charity spotlight

I wanted to do something to give back. That is what prompted me to go out and search for organizations that I could participate in, support, and share with others. There are so many charities out there. Many barely give any proceeds of what they raise to the actual cause, while some give over 90% of the money raised to the subject of their purpose. As I find organizations that I can get behind I will share them here. I encourage all of you to pick an organization or cause you believe in and do what you can to support […]
