Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season. May we put behind all the sadness of 2016, and focus on the success of 2017. Since my last post, I’ve been thinking about blogging and writing, and decided to take a hiatus from both. I’d like to focus on other things in my life right now. If something comes up and I want to share, I’ll post it. If I feel the desire to write again, I’ll go with it. But for now, I think it’s best to put them aside. I wish you all a wonderful year! …

Out of This World

It’s the last of this year’s author interviews, and I’m ending it with a blast. Mary Davie’s main loves are reading and writing. Another interest, one that is the driving force in her writing, is science. Please give a warm welcome to Mary. Describe yourself in 150 words or less. I am probably thinking about this question more than I should have to. It’s just I am a bunch of different things. I’m that person that taught herself to read really early, that climbed the Apple tree (until we had to chop it down) to read books, maybe eat an …

I Want to Be a Writer!

I belong to several writing groups on Facebook, Google+, and Goodreads. The groups have a mixture of beginners and experienced writers with many questions and conversations regarding new writers’ concerns. I thought I’d tackle some of the postings that I’ve come across, and see if I can clarify a few things for the newbies who want to become writers. This is only my advice… which is Gold. 😀  Before I start discussing these concerns, I’d like to mention a few things. First, don’t have too many expectations. Writing is a lonely journey. Most people in your lives won’t take much …

Surviving Writer

It’s author interview day today, and I’d like to introduce you to Jana Robison. A sucker for cats and dogs, Jana embraces her nerdiness, and shares her writings with us along with a little bit of her blessed life. Please welcome her and enjoy the interview. Describe yourself in 150 words or less. Hello! I am a (semi) retired mother, and grandmother, who is a transplant in the big ole state of Texas. I love to draw and write, and although I truly suck at it, I’m a wannabe gardener! I am a nerd, always have been, and I must …

What Makes Writers Scream

Question: Are you still writing? Answer: Nope. I stopped when the circus came to town. They needed a roadie so I figured why not. I could use the experience in case I don’t become a NYT Bestselling Author, I receive an eviction notice, or I’m eating out of restaurant garbage bins. The skills will open the doors for me to work as a courier for some pompous law firm. Because, hey, writing is just a hobby and it’s important to prepare for the future instead of wasting my time on such silly notions. Question: What do you write about? Answer: …
