I'm a moon baby, born under the sign of Cancer, and I've always felt the ebb and flow of the moon.   So the topic of a super moon inspires me.  Thus, this week I offer several prompts for your consideration.

The things that inspire me are…

And please remember, if you are having a hard time writing, I'd love to help.  Check out my coaching page here, or the Get Your Writing in Gear page here (there's a couple more weeks left on the March Madness sale).

    Hi Charlotte,
    At long last you reveal your sign. You’re not the first Cancer I’ve known. I am certain of one thing: You are not a cookie-cutter bunch.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
