If you’ve come to my small corner of the blogosphere to find out if Neil Gaiman’s MasterClass: Teaches the Art of Storytelling is worth the money, let me answer in three words:

Good. God. Yes.

Before I dive in, let me clarify that I’m not an affiliate for MasterClass, so all opinions are my own. I’m also an All-Access Pass member, which currently costs $180.00. I highly recommend this to all writers, since MasterClass offers thirteen classes by well-renowned authors such as James Patterson, Dan Brown, and Margaret Atwood. But if you can only afford to pay for one class, I do believe Neil Gaiman’s is worth the money!

I have my mother to thank for my healthy attitude toward aging.

She’s the reason why I never lie about my age and why I think the whole ‘you should never ask a lady her age’ is an outdated concept that needs to go. I mean, honestly. Nobody ever says, ‘never ask a man his age,’ so if us older gals want society to view our age as an asset instead of a liability … then it begins with us and how we view ourselves.

How old am I? Fifty-one, thanks for asking!

Hello, again …

… it’s been a while since my last blog post! I hope all is wonderful on your end and that you’ve been surviving this insane year!

Such a good thing.

Cross-posted on Joyful Miles to save time. 😉

Well, I did it. Something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time but held off because A.) it’d be a waste of money seeing as how I’m not ready and I lack the talent, B.) I’d most likely flake and quit, just like I’ve done so many times before, and C.) the thought of jumping TERRIFIES ME.

But I did it anyway. I signed up for Mark Dawson’s Self-Publishing Formula 101 Course.

I better get this post in quick tonight, since I’m about to start a two month digital detox … no blogging both here and at Joyful Miles, no YouTube, (other than watching videos while using my NuFace—momma needs her entertainment,) no Facebook, no Twitter, no Instagram, no nothing.

Oh, Lawd.

I’ll be sharing my reasons why in a post tomorrow morning but the short version is I need to crawl into a cozy creative cave for a while in order to finish my novel. To just live in only two words for a while – mine and a fictional one. Maybe along the way I’ll gain some much-needed clarity and mental peace!

Rejoice: Taking time for more joy in my life!

Don’t get me wrong. 2019 was absolutely amazing and fantastic in so many ways! I ran a marathon, finished a novel, took a wonderful cruise with family, saw Paris, and enjoyed many weekends at the beach, my happy place.
