    Finding a Writing Buddy

    As an avid reader I am very familiar with the concept of a reading buddy. I am just recently discovering the concept of a writing buddy though. Someone who is like minded and can help you work through your writing works.

    Not only have I discovered the great benefits for both sides with a writing buddy, but I have also come to understand that I need one. I have readers and family who stand behind me. What I am lacking is someone who understands me. The way my brain turns everything into a literary stepping stone. I find inspiration for writing in everything in my life and it fuels the passion I have to put words down for others to read. This is a foreign concept though for most of those around me.

    As an author of both poetry and books, I have found myself in even more need of someone to bounce my ideas off of. Someone who understands the way writing works and has the same interests. But how do I find a like-minded person? So I decided to ask you, my readers for advice. I know many of you are writers as well. How do you handle this issue? Where did you find your writing buddy? Who tells you when an idea works or just honestly stinks? Leave me some ideas in the comments section. Let me know how you handle the struggles of a creative mind.

    As always, inspire to be inspired. The world is only as big as you allow it to be. Embrace it and you will see how small it can seem.

    Who Knew Being an Author Could Make You Nervous

    Good afternoon all. I am super excited and nervous as well. Tomorrow will be my first book signing and I know it will go great. But do you have have those panic attack moments, right before a big event? Well that is where I am now.

    I am looking forward to meeting everyone. But if I am honest, this scares the daylights out of me. I love to communicate in my blog and in books and poetry but I am a very shy and private person. So what was I thinking in becoming an author. A public figure. I do not know, except I knew I needed to overcome my fears to follow my dreams of writing books. So here I am.

    So tomorrow I will put on my best smile and complete one more hurtle for my dreams. I hope to see many of you. I look forward to chatting about La Flor Manor and anything else you would care to share. Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend.

    Book Signing Reminder

    Good afternoon all. I hope that this weekend has seen all of your warm and happy. As many start their week and others relish one last day of for the Holiday, I want to remind everyone that there is only 5 more days until my first book signing. I am nervous and excited at the same time. To meet those who have read my book face to face. To hear their opinions in person instead of through social media networks. I am looking forward to meeting everyone who comes out.

    For those of you who may have missed my earlier post, if you happen to find yourself in or near Coffeyville, KS. Saturday February 23rd between 1 pm and 4 pm, stop by the local library to have your copy of La Flor Manor signed by me personally. Also, if you do not yet have a copy you ca pick one up at the event.

    I cannot wait to see you there. Until then, stay inspired my friends. Your next inspiration could be under that pile of snow you find yourself shoveling or in the raindrops that sprinkle slowly to the ground.
