There is No Perfect | There is Only Finished

I’ve been a closet fiction writer for years. So closeted that I never considered myself a “real” writer even though the title is all over my website and marketing materials. To be fair, I’ve written a lot…Just look at this blog. But I have a lot of unfinished fiction work….

Your path is your own

In our super-connected “all eyes on me” world, it is so easy to compare yourself to other people, even unintentionally. As you scroll down your timeline you can start to measure yourself in relation to the careers, appearances,  relationships (engagements, babies) and materialistic possessions of your peers. Now, you can claim that you never…
