Tips to Help Your Writing

In the past few months I have really increased my writing.  I try to write every single day, even if it is just gibberish in a notebook.  Writing, like all art forms requires practice.  It also needs inspiration.  I am working on a novel right now and it has evolved in the last few weeks. […]

Michaela’s Inquiring Mind

Michaela continues to amaze me on a very regular basis, pretty much daily.  She has progressed to full sentences.  In fact, she makes a point of using full sentences now.  She is also in the question stage.  Inquiring minds want to know, about everything.  Her favorite question is: “What is it?”.  She asks me this […]
