Trust me, ALL writers face writer's block from time to time.

There is a reason I always have at least two project on the go at the same time. That way if I get stuck in one story, I have another one I can focus on until I come up with another way to move forward on the other story. If you do this, though, be sure to move your mindset to the plot of the story in front of you. How embarrassing to move to another project only to start writing in the place you just left for a break. HAHA!(less)

For me, there are two things I enjoy the most about being a writer.

First, I can express myself through words and, hopefully, touch another person in some way. There are few things more special than actually seeing or hearing about how your work has helped another.

Next, I work from home so I can still be a mom too. That was very important to me, especially when my children were young.(less)

Ahh...the joy of tweens and preteens. What happened to my babies who were just happy playing at the park, being close to me and listening once in awhile? In what seems like within a blink of an eye, they went from needing me on every level, to being embarrassed to have me around.

I have two tweens and two teens and they are all very different. Obviously, someone up there feels I deserve some pa... Read more of this blog post »

“Perhaps people felt there was nothing more they could do, you know? After all, how can someone be helped who doesn’t see the need? A Christian counselor I saw for a while described such situations as, “a White Elephant everyone can see but no one wants to deal with; everyone hopes the problem will just go away on its own.”

Just like with my mom.

Back then it seemed women were almost expected to go a little loopy sometimes. After all we’re the ones with raging hormones that get out of whack – by our periods, PMS or pregnancy and childbirth – and cause craziness and bizarre behavior. And because of those uncontrollable hormones, women are also more emotional and predisposed to depression. These are things my mom was actually told by her parents, her family, her husbands and friends... even her doctor. Eventually, she made herself believe that her erratic behavior stemmed from PMS, not mania or alcohol.”
