A few words to the wise

 Wish I could tell you where this originated.

2015102831

It’s easy to tell others to take risks. It’s harder to live by that rule, especially if you’re wise enough to consider the consequences. Have faith. Take a leap and trust that someone will catch you.

 

Weigh your choices.

 

Don’t hesitate to give to a stranger but don’t give everything away.

 

Be who you are. Everybody else is taken.

 

Life is short. Have the courage to leave a miserable job, if you’ve tried everything you can. The same is true of a miserable relationship, as long as you’re not hurting your children. If you’re afraid you might be, weigh the value of staying in a struggling relationship against the possible outcome of moving on.

10-16Advice-300x210

Don’t be afraid to move on and move forward. Don’t let fear hold you back.

 

Don’t be afraid to love; don’t wear your heart on your sleeve.

 

Remember that life is what happens while you’re making other plans.

4-18 Contests

Consider your body, with all its imperfections, a gift from God. Treat it well and know what you can and cannot change.

Accept what you cannot change; change what you can; ask for the wisdom to know the difference.

Be grateful for what is right in your life.

Purchase Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife at 62

Seeking Support for your writing?

“No one, and I mean no one, writes alone in an attic with no support. Think about it: in order to stay in an attic all day doing your thing, someone has to shop, cook and clean for you, do the laundry, bring you new supplies. If we’ve heard of a writer, someone edited and published them. Someone bought the books.

“My point is: the myth of the lonely artist serves none of us. If you have a dream to write, get a buddy, take a class, find a group, or get support to find alone time if that is what you need.” — Elizabeth Stark

Real life doesn't have a script.
What are you searching for?

So how do you find the support you need? Check out the following resources:

Hippocampus Magazine

Story Circle Network

International Women’s Writing Guild

Shut Up and Write

National Novel Writing Month

National Association of Memoir Writers

Writer Advice

The resources are out there and many stories sit inside your head, waiting to be told. Writer Advice has a manuscript consultation service, which I run, and I also teach Independent Study, working one-on-one with you and your writing, through Story Circle Network. Why face the blank page alone when there are resources to help you?

You can see a sample of my writing in the free section of Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife at 62 here.

Gotta get the word out!

How hard is it to tell the world about your book?

Not too hard.

It’s getting them to listen that’s the trick.

Speaking with a customer at the Dublin Library in Dublin, CA.

Saturday I shared books with other local writers at the Dublin (CA) Library, and even sold some.

Today my interview with Kaye Lynn Booth is out.

via Interview with author B. Lynn Goodwin

Take a look, leave a reply, and let me know if you’d like to interview me for your blog.

BTW, it’s never too late to pick up a copy of NEVER TOO LATE: From Wannabe to Wife at 62. 

Also available wherever books are sold. Just tell them to order from Ingram. 

R & Me

A delightful read that will teach you much about the process of discerning what is right for you.”    ~~Linda Marshall, author of A Long Awakening to Grace

Instead of continuing to search for a mate who is a mirror of ourselves, who is the most intelligent, wealthy, successful, witty, etc., embrace the person who is authentic and trustworthy, with styles or attributes that we lack, who brings out the best in us.” ~~L. Kain
