My recent “Quips and Tips” articles focus on re-evaluating goals, setting new intentions, and money money money! Creating financial abundance is one of my favorite topics, so I’m forging ahead with money and goals…because it’s more fun to be The Adventurous Writer when you’re actually making money writing.
What’s really been on my mind, however, is a 2,500 word article I just wrote for alive magazine. That’s the longest, most in-depth article I’ve ever written – and it was stressful! Why I want to write a 70,000 word book is beyond me…and yet I’m still aiming for a book contract from a reputable book publisher…
Also, I started a new “Quips and Tips” website, called Quips and Tips for Love Relationships. I found my Achieving Your Goals blog to be too love-heavy, so I’m transferring articles from Goals to Love…which means my Love blog is basically creating itself!
