New Adventure – Write with me!

New Adventure – Write with me!

Hi Bookworms!

I have been working on this project for several weeks and I’m so excited to announce this new adventure. Introducing … Write with Me! Happening every week on YouTube and Instagram Live!

This will be a place where you can shut the rest of the world out and join me to work on creative projects. Whether it’s brainstorming a new series or going through final edits, I will have a quiet, peaceful space for you to relax in. No music, no ambient tracks — though there may be a few live interruptions from the cat. I’m going for periods of quiet productivity, punctuated by short breaks. The length of time between breaks will change based on what I’m doing – for example, brainstorming might need a few uninterrupted hours while actual writing needs more frequent breaks.

The schedule is still a work in progress since I have kids that need chauffeuring and a part-time job out of the house. And, I can’t use YouTube live’s features until I reach 1000 subscribers, so for now, those videos will be prerecorded. But, I’ll be going live on Instagram or Facebook. I don’t know about live chat or live comments, we’ll see how it goes, but hopefully, we can have some fun and build a community around creativity.

I will post the exact schedule here ASAP. In the meantime, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel – here.

Hope to see you soon!

On original ideas … Sondheim says it best

On original ideas … Sondheim says it best

I’ve been obsessing this week over the 90th Birthday celebration for Stephen Sondheim last year and especially this song from “Sunday in the Park with George.” It’s not one of my favorite musicals, but this song is definitely a highlight and Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford absolutely nail it.

One of the best lines comes around 2:30:

I get some variation of this worry a lot, especially from new authors. I don’t know how many times someone has told me they have a cool idea, but they’re worried it will seem tired, the idea has been done, the story has been told already.

Well, true. There are not a whole lot of stories that haven’t already been told. But … they haven’t been told by YOU. Don’t steal other people’s work, but tell your story. You have a unique voice and the world will be richer hearing it.
