My blog is mostly about writing.
Every so often, I write about other things. Today, I want to talk about the importance of keeping busy, lifting your soul with creativity. Having a project can elevate your mood and your sense of self-worth.
The last year and a half was a challenge. My husband was forced to retire before he was ready. Things kind of went into a tailspin. We didn’t know what we were going to do financially. Yes, we have a 401k and savings, but most of you know just how fast the money can slip away. We didn’t want to touch it. And because he was not yet 65, health insurance was an issue. He struggled to find something, both to keep him busy and to make a little money to supplement our income.
It took a while, but he’s found it. I give you East Texas Metal Creations!!
The fun part? We can travel together and spend quality time with each other. While I sell my books, he sells his artwork. A great combination.
I love to work in the morning, so he goes to his shop and creates! We break for lunch, then back at it. It’s working perfectly! We’re each making money and doing what we love.
Find something you love to do. Work at it until you perfect it, then share it with the world. We’ve turned DIY into a partnership.
Go find your dream. It’s inside of you. Find what you love, then perfect it. The journey is worth it.

My goal is to be not just an author of books, but a true writer. I love to spin a story the reader cannot put down, a page turner. It always thrills me to see the wonderful reviews of my work, or to hear people say they could not put the book down. That is what satisfies me as a writer.
