Unveiling of the Official Cover for “My Riding Journal: Memories and Lessons”

I am very excited about this journal because it is much needed in my life right now (minus the competition trackers. I am not there yet, but I know some of you horse lovers are!)

When Life Gets in the Way of Writing

I haven't been keeping up with my blogging as well as I want to. By the title I'm sure you can guess, life is getting in the way of my writing. I'm no expert on how to handle this, but I thought it might make me feel better to write it out a little bit and maybe during this process I'll come up with a good way to keep writing even though I am overwhelmed with everything else going on in my life right now. So, here's what's going on:

When Inspiration Strikes A Writer

Sorry there was no blog post yesterday, but inspiration struck me and I got swept up in a book project. While I have about 20% of "Dead Road (Dead Soil book 2)" done, something else inspired me yesterday. I had two choices: ignore the inspiration and keep writing "Dead Road" or run with the inspiration and possibly fall behind on my current book. Luckily, the inspiration wasn't to start another story, but rather create a self-discovery journal.

Writer Habits: Self-Discipline

I will be the first to admit that this is something I struggle with. As much as I know certain things will benefit me, it's hard for me to do it when I just don't feel like it, when I would rather relax than exercise or write or wake up early. As I continue to push myself to be a better person and a better writer, self-discipline is in the forefront of my self-exploration.
