Becasue I'm writing, I sometimes neglect website design, housework, yard work, reading new books etc. A creative break is a good time to tackle other jobs. Also, really good books are inspirational. If I read something really good, I am inspired to write something. Keep reading and your desire to create will return. (less)

Before I started, I had a myriad of emotional problems caused by repressed trauma, but writing has helped me to process what was hurting me. Also, publishing helped me to feel self-confidence. Every time I publish an article for a business or blog, I feel skilled. Everytime I publish a book, I feel pride about my accomplishments. (less)

A few weeks ago, in a moment of intense emotional pain, I deleted my Facebook. I didn’t want to vent in a status message. I was afraid of the things I would say. About my marriage. About my daughter’s health. About myself. I was afraid of people knowing. Afraid of judgement. Afraid of the allure ...

“Did you ever notice how the words Attention and Alienation look the same when you are staring at them from a distance?”
Alisia Compton

“In the dull twilight of the winter afternoon she came to the end of a long road which had begun the night Atlanta fell. She had set her feet upon that road a spoiled, selfish and untried girl, full of youth, warm of emotion, easily bewildered by life. Now, at the end of the road, there was nothing left of that girl. Hunger and hard labor, fear and constant strain, the terrors of war and the terrors of Reconstruction had taken away all warmth and youth and softness. About the core of her being, a shell of hardness had formed and, little by little, layer by layer, the shell had thickened during the endless months.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

“The better you look, the more you see.”
Bret Easton Ellis, Glamorama

“There's more to life than books, you know. But not much more.”
Morrissey
