#FreebieFriday #BeachRead Edition


Summer Reading I don't know about you, but I find it extremely hard to concentrate on my writing in the summer. I'd much sooner be outside, in the garden, or lounging under the cherry tree reading all the amazing books on my TBR pile (which is ready to run away and hide, it's so tall! …

Spinning Tires #WritersLife #amwriting


Spinning My Tires Lately it feels as though my writing has come to a standstill and I'm just spinning tires without going anywhere.
