Is This the Year You Will Write Your Book?

I know I am not the first person to notice this but…The years are flying by! It seems like we just dodged that scary bullet of having all the computers in the world go berserk when the new millennium started, and here we are in 2010!

If you have a book in your head or in your heart, this is the year to get it on paper. If you have listened to the radio the last couple of months, you have probably heard lots of commercials for speech recognition software at prices under $100. Now you can write a book without even typing. So what’s stopping you? Participants in our online book writing workshop say that working with a group, where they had structure, encouragement and support enabled them to write the book they had been wishing to write for years. Click You Ought to Write a Book! to learn the details. Then just e-mail or call to register. I would love to help you make your book dream come true this year.


January: So Much to Celebrate!

January offers us some great observations. So I have to tell you about a few of them.

January 17 is Blessing of the Animals at the Cathedral Day. Pets bring so much to our lives, and observing beautiful creatures in the wild can be so inspiring. There is nothing that brings more delight driving through some of the vast expanses on the flat Midwest than spotting deer along the way or observing migrating birds in flight

January 21 is National Hugging Day. Well who doesn’t feel better after a good hug?

January 23 is National Handwriting Day. We had better celebrate this now before it becomes a lost art.

January 30 is Escape Day. Just what we need in the middle of winter!!


A Writing Tip — Trust Yourself

Let me share one of my favorite quotations from Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe:

“Just trust yourself. Then you will know

how to live.”

That thought applies to all aspects of your life – even to your writing. Trust yourself that you have everything you need to finish your book. You have all the knowledge you need, all the talent, all the skill, all the energy, and all the support.
