May the Blessings of Christmas be with you today and always.

God Bless and Merry Christmas,


One lesson I’ve learned from National Novel Writing Month…

I did it you guys! I finally reached 50K on my new novel and I don’t think I could be any happier.

I’ve got to admit, early on, reaching my goal seemed daunting, but looking back, I can tell you that it was definitely doable. I just needed to get into a routine of writing, which is something I’ve lacked the last few years as a writer. But now, I am so glad that I’ve gotten into the habit of sitting down and writing away, even when I don’t want to. And, I’ve got to say, it is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

And as the month closes and I find myself finishing my novel, I can say without a doubt that the one thing I’ve learned this month is that if you really want something, you have to put in the time, and make it a habit. No one else is going to do it for you.
