Friday Ramblings

Friday Ramblings-February Progress

It’s almost the end of the month and time to look back at successes and failures.

A big success this month was getting the lessons and workbooks finished for my upcoming summer writing retreat that I’ll be teaching from June-August. I think the block working method I used (working on only that project and nothing else), helped get the job done. I also got my first product finished and loaded on this site (Content Creator’s Business Pack). And finally, I kept posting to the site as scheduled. I’ll admit some days were tough and some days I honestly thought about skipping it but I kept going.

Failures-using the scheduling feature here on the WordPress site and not having it work about 95% of the time. I’ve been scheduling it for 1 a.m. Central but nothing gets posted so I have to post it manually. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong because it works perfectly over at my writing blog. Although I should add that’s on and not .org. If anyone has any solutions or knows what’s going wrong, I’d love some help.

Other failures, not spending enough time on my artwork. It’s been a busy two months and it’s gone by the wayside but I’ve promised to do a daily sketch or even a doodle every single day in March.

What have been your successes and failures this month?

I saw this in an e-mail today and if you want to attend a ladies only entrepreneur get together and on the beach no less, check out

I have two new classes beginning on Monday and have to do my shameless self promoting thing here.

If you’ve thought about writing a romance novel or if you’ve written one (or any other genre) and have no idea about promoting it, I’m teaching How to Write a Romance Novel and Self Promotion Boot Camp though the Outreach Chapter of Romance Writers of America. You don’t have to be a member to sign up, don’t have to be a romance writer and best of all, these are taught through online lessons posted straight to your e-mail so you don’t have to be in class at a certain time.They’re flexible and affordable. Here’s the link if you want to sign up, scroll down until you reach March.

That’s it for the week and the month of February, see you again on Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend, and remember to live the life you love.
