I'm the winner of my city's writing award and a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards. The stories that won were products of my travels. There’s never a lack of places to set an edge-of-the-seat suspense as prairie winters find me dreaming of warmer places for heart-stopping stories. They are places where deadly villains threaten intrepid heroes and heroines who battle for their right to live or even to love. When I'm not writing I'm reading, golfing, talking about working out, dreaming of another vacation or just hanging out.

There are hours spent on administrative details that aren't writing, and combine that with long days writing and you're tired - especially in the marathon to a book's finish. Middle of the book, end of the book - wherever you are, sometimes you just need to take a vacation, see something new, look at the world with fresh eyes. Often I'll use those mini-vacations to read craft books and magazines. They always have a fresh perspective and reminders that get me motivated all over again - that is if the vacation hasn't done that already.(less)

Cintia - thanks for the question
First off, I can’t emphasize enough, unplug from industry news. Knowing what’s going on in the industry is having a negative effect on your writing and motivation. Remember, it doesn’t matter how many people want to be writers nor does it matter how many or few of them, ever write a book, or how many of those get rejected. None of them are you and none of them can write your book. As far as ideas, they're everywhere in any given day, fleeting moments that you'll forget unless you write them down. So go old school. Get a notebook and pen and take it everywhere. When an idea presents itself, and they always do, write it down. Affirm every day that you’re a writer – even if you just write a paragraph or a poem or journal. Write for yourself and for fun. The more you write, the more you’ll be able to write and the ideas will come.

It's never too late for a New Year's resolution.  It's 2018 - hard to believe, where did 2017 go?  Coming off the chocolate fuelled holiday season I've finally sat down to make some resolutions.  That's something I've done in past years but not well.  None made it to the next new year.  This time I'm changing things up.  I waited until the holiday season was over, until  today actually, mid-Jan...

I expected that the book would be more driven by scientific findings than it was at least in the beginning where it was more a discussion of finding the study. But once the author found his way to the nun study, it was a great read. I've waited to re ...more
