Writing With A Friend

So I’ve been working on a fun blog post the last couple of weeks but it’s not quite ready yet.  I’ve tried a few times to get the ball rolling faster to no avail – for this post I’m dependent on the availability of three other people (Which is fine!  It’s not like I control everyone else’s lives.  I mean, it would be kinda cool if I was all-powerful like that, but alas I am not).

Take Control, Why Positivity Matters

For some reason, 2017 seemed to churn out almost as many self-help / positive thinking / motivation focused books as it did detective thrillers.  Ok… wait… that isn’t impressive enough… Maybe it churned out almost as many as the entire mystery genre combined.  One second… think bigger…  Maybe it produced as many as all fiction books put together.  Maybe as many as all fiction books ever … Continue reading Take Control, Why Positivity Matters
