January 4th Question: What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard? To be honest, most of them. For me, writing rules are great as a guide but……

Rules can take away “the write it, like you say it”. I like writing when I can experiment with injecting clean humor and fun metaphors.

Sharing thoughts, in our own style, is powerful for confidence; yet bring a pins and needles thought, what if no one likes it?

So what is my mantra today. Write anyway. (wink) It’s quite liberating and powerful self-encouragement.

Thank God, I have a paying day job. (whew)

Yes, I’m still learning and growing as a writer; someday, by faith, all those writing rules will come together, just not today. (smile)

Stay encouraged and keep the faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Thanks Alex C for not kicking me off da list. (wink) I appreciate that I’m still part of this amazing group.

AUGUST 3RD QUESTION: What was your very first piece of writing as an aspiring writer? Where is it now? Collecting dust or has it been published?

My first piece of writing as an aspiring writer came as a blogger in my second year. I was fortunate to be part of the IWSG’s Guide to Publishing and Beyond in 2014.

My writing draft is still in the pieces stage collecting dust! Until I retire, from the circus, finding dedicated time to writing the book falls short.

Sometimes writing ebbs and flows….

Like running a race, I have faith and stay encouraged while pressing forward until it’s finish. (smile)

Stay encouraged and keep the faith.

Blessings, my friends!
