Some days life just gets in the way

That’s a problem most of us writers have – we think to dang much 🙂

Video – A New Frontier

We’ve been toying with different advertising methods and I’ve seen some authors effectively use youtube.com to promote their books. Since I’m not only promoting books, but also helping to promote PaperBox Books, I decided to give it a whirl.

Information overload in a good way

I have my hand in several pots. Web design, small business coaching for internet marketing, writing, teaching writing skills and publishing. I don’t know whether I have a touch of ADD where I can’t keep focused for more than a few minutes or I’m conceited enough to think that nothing is good without me, or […]

Make it STOP!!

I set the time but forgot to turn the dang alarm on. It’s not too bad, breakfast became brunch and lunch will be mid-afternoon. I was […]

Midnight

Last night was our editing group. I was a bit nervous because this was the first night the tables turned and I was to be edited by the writers I’ve been editing for PaperBox Books.

Monday again

I have no voice and have to attend our editing group meeting. The good news is it’s my stuff we’re going over. So I won’t have to talk that much. The bad news is I won’t be able to defend my word choices unless I haul out some paper and a sharpie. (*makes a mental note to pack her sharpies*)

Colds and Thinking

I’ve been lucky this winter. I’ve dodged cold after cold and managed not to get sick. At least not completely. I still run through the symptoms, but they’re so mild, they can’t even be called a cold. Not really.

Playing with video

I took my little Sony digital camera and recorded the impromptu choir that sang along with our national anthem as the medals were awarded. I don’t think there was a dry eye on the street.
