Promptitude: LA

As you are reading this, I'll in in LA.  Not lounging by the pool, even though I am staying in Santa Monica.  No, I'm at the first Suzanne Evans 10K Coaching Club Intensive, working my little tail off to come up with new and wonderful ways to serve my clients and readers.  Yes, you. And […]

Off I Go Again

I'm heading to LA tomorrow.  Yep.  Swimming pools.  Movie stars.  Just like the Clampetts.  Except I'll be working the entire time, attending a two-day business intensive that is part of the Suzanne Evans 10K Coaching Club.  Together with 98 other women, I'll be designing a plan for the next stage of my business. Frankly, I'm […]

There’s Revelation in Deprivation

Hey–before you read this, hop on over to Jodi Milner's blog, My Literary Quest, and read her interview with me.  She asked great questions that I enjoyed answering! For the next couple weeks, I am off coffee and alcohol.  Okay, I get to drink one cup of coffee a day.  But no alcohol.  And no […]

Do You Lack Writing Time or Writing Energy?

Time.                  It's elusive, isn't it?  Weird how in the same amount of hours on one day you get a ton done and the next day you fritter it away. Time is either the writer's friend, or the bane of her existence, more often the latter.  Nearly every client and student I coach struggles with […]

7 Ways to Find Ideas

How do you get ideas?  Do you struggle to find them, or do they come to you in an endless flow that is frustrating only because you can't act on all of them? Although most creative types fall into the latter category, I think if we're honest we'll also admit that there are fallow times […]

The west side is […]

On The Road Again

I'm heading out again first thing tomorrow morning.  It is unusual for me to book trips so close together (I got back from Nashville less than a week ago), but it is just the way it worked out this time. Tomorrow's destination is Diamond, Oregon, way over in the southeastern section of the state, a […]
