  1. Be disciplined in your writing. What this means is that you have to make time for writing. Write until writing becomes a habit.
  2. Connect with other writers. Two popular mediums are Goodreads and Facebook writing groups. I have found Facebook writing groups to be a good place to connect with other writers and get feed back. Both Facebook and Goodreads provide opportunities for you to get Beta readers for your book
  3. Write, read and rewrite if necessary. To create a good book takes patience and dedication to your work. Revision is your best friend. You will find yourself doing a lot of it. After all you want your book to be a masterpiece that everyone wants to read. Good luck and happy writing.

Is Nakedness the New Norm?

Society has one of the greatest influence on people. Many feel that they need to do things they are sometimes not comfortable with in order to fit it. Social Media perhaps has the greatest impact on how women view themselves and the image they project.

It saddens me to see that so many women equates nakedness with attractiveness. If you feel you have to expose your body in order to feel attractive, it says a lot about how you view youself as an individual and more importantly as a woman.

You are more than just an object, so much more than a sex symbol. Take pride in the way you carry yourself and be cognizant of the fact that there is a difference between looking attractive and looking tacky.

When Your Backyard Becomes the Internet

The internet is an interesting place. It is a place where we often get the news first and there are tons of information at our fingertips. While we learn and keep abreast of what is happening around us we have to be mindful that not everything that we see on the internet is true. In fact rumors move faster on the internet than facts. They get the most likes comments and shares and few question the whether or not the story is true.

When our backyard becomes the internet and someone start a rumor the effect is the same. People will like it. They will comment on it and you can bet your life that they are going to share it. Just like on the internet the truth is irrelevant as long as the story is juicy. However that not every one is going to believe those rumors. There are some who will question the validity and point out that the story is false. 

Sadly this will not quell rumors, those who want to believe it will continue to spread it until the next rumor comes along.

Bobbi Kristina

After weeks in a medical induced coma the latest report on Bobbi Kristina condition is that some of her organs are shutting down. This is a serious and sad situation. I for one was hoping that she would pull through. Let us continue to pray for a miracle for as long as she is alive there is still hope. God raised Lazarus from the dead and He can bring her back from the jaws of death with Him all things are possible. Again let us all continue to pray for Bobbi Kristina.
