Sheila has lived many places, none home until she returned to south Alabama near the farms where her ancestors lived and loved. She co-exists with one husband, two cats, and three dogs.

She agrees with Emily Dickinson who said, "I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it until it begins to shine."

I would love to keep to a schedule, but life keeps happening--and so glad it does! It gives me things to write about. LOL

Since I'm retired, I'm able to write full time. Still, interruptions are constant. Ideally, I like to either stay up late or get up early ( but not both!) to avoid the distractions.

Most of the problem boils down to me. It's a matter of forcing myself to sit down and write. I'm in two Facebook groups whose members have daily sprints. That gives me an extra push, and I've found it helpful. Knowing other writers are publishing books at a fast rate gives me confidence to do it myself.

Thanks for asking and good luck on book number two!(less)
