“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” ~William Faulkner
Although battling a bad case of bronchitis, 2020 is off to a busy start! Just when I think I can’t get any busier…SURPRISE!!! Feeling so blessed that during the past year so many wonderful people have come into my life giving me new opportunities to grow and learn. I exceeded my goal during NaNoWriMo and am knee-deep working on revisions and research. Looking forward to working on a few new projects that I will be sharing over the next few months as well as making big changes to my coaching practice at Ignite Your Creativity…stay tuned for more information.
Keep your eyes open for Professor Owl’s Book Corner February Newsletter for Young Adults coming out this week, my #WATWB We are the World Blogfest post on January 31st as well as a few book reviews on Boho and Bookish.
“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.” ~Anne Lamott
Wherever you may be in your day or evening, I hope you’re making each moment matter!
Live, laugh & love! ❤

“A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Storytellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.”~ Ursula K. Le Guin
