Good morning! And in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight! Don't get that reference? Let me introduce you to The Truman Show. If you're wondering what in the devil The Truman Show has to do with my self-care Sunday, I don't blame you. Friday I tweeted out a list of … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday: Your Guess Is As Good As Mine
Good afternoon, friends! I was posed a question at work the other day: Why do I write (even occasionally) about self-care? After all, I am an author. Shouldn't my blog be all about writing tips and information about self-publishing etc. etc. My response: A lot of authors, especially self-publishing authors, neglect themselves in some fashion. We work … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday: Five-Minute Miracles
Good morning! I have excellent news! Fall is here! If you live in one of the northern states, you're probably unimpressed by this. Perhaps you're even into wintry weather already. But, here in the south, summer has a tendency to hang on with the strength of a dung beetle. Seriously, the comparison works. Trust. We woke … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday: Makin’ Chili

General Life Update Since I didn't post anything last week, I'll start with a general update. Why didn't I post anything? I felt...horrible. Physically, I was just exhausted. It felt like day 4,591 of allergy season. I was adjusting to new allergy medication. I couldn't think, much less write, anything. So, I apologize. It was … Continue reading I’m Alive!
It's springtime in The South. If you aren't from here, you might not know what that means. In some parts of the country, it's still quite cold. Snowing, even. In other parts, it's already hot as blazes, as my grandmother would've said. So, what is springtime like in The South? And by The South I am referring to Georgia, … Continue reading The Yellow Plague
