Author Tweets of the Week (2-16)

It’s been two months since we’ve had Tweets of the Week, so let’s jump right in…


This one is so me! It’s coffee time or wine time when it’s writing time. I’ve given up alcohol for Lent, though, so… pray for me.



I loved @JamesLeeSchmidt’s response here. So true! Why are all of us adults too Stupid?!?


These next ones are in a series. I was tagged to share a cover that inspired me without explaining why. Here’s the cover chosen when I was originally tagged, the cover that I chose, and some of the cover responses I received.



I said don’t explain it @williamsbnikki!!!! 😀 🤣

Great covers. Thanks for sharing!



I enjoyed this next one:

I don’t own a cat, but I know what cat’s are and I know how cat’s be creeping. I love ’em, but this is so true. Made me laugh.


These last two tweets seem to be a perfect way to kickoff the weekend.

Be patient with yourselves, friends. Take time with you goals. Take time to create what you need to. Be patient.



Do what you do because you love it, regardless if others do too. Take heart!


Go create, friends! Set your goals. Find your voice and follow it!

Author Tweets of the Week (11-10)

I apologize that new content has been less frequent over the past month or so. I’m working on finalizing my next book: 40 Tips on Creative Writing—A guide for writers to turn your passion into a successful book. 

It will be available for preorder hopefully next week. The perfect holiday gift for yourself and your writing friends. I think you’ll love it!
Let’s dive into the Tweets of the Week.

Yes, while it’s quite possible Ernest Hemingway was a high functioning alcoholic, (Jack London certainly was), he is a gifted writer and thinker. Anyway, I may have inadvertently taken his advice to heart a few times in my life.



I always say, the book is yours until you publish it; then it’s the readers.
These next two go hand-in-hand I think…



How true these are! When you’re ready to write and have the time, it’s just tumbleweeds rolling around. Then, when you’re ready to lay down and sleep, the ideas always start flowing. Inspiration and Procrastination need to synch up I think!



Honestly, the reason inspiration comes at night when we’re dozing off is most likely because it’s when we’re quietest. I’m sure inspiration tries to speak to us throughout the day, but our lives are too loud for us to hear her. Slow down, friends. Quiet your lives down.



Yes. 100x yes.


So true. Memoirs of a Geisha has been angrily judging me for years. I’ll get to you someday day. I promise. (Sigh)


Write with an audience in mind, but don’t write because of that audience. Write for yourself. Don’t write for acceptance at all.


I love this Nora Roberts quote. You need to make time to write. Don’t wait for the time to free up for you. Make it happen. Block time off to write.

He. Too good.


Don’t worry about whether the first draft is good or not. Get the ideas and words out onto paper. Worry about quality during editing.


There is no such thing as perfection, friends. Strive for excellence. Perfection is a fleeting desire.

What a wonderful note to end on. Take a deep breath. You are proud. You are are brave. You are writers.

Go write, friends! Find your writing voice and write to your hearts content!
