Hurricanes of Excuse

I said I would do it. I said I would deliver the project on time. I said I would be faithful. I said I would be there. And then Sandy hit. The funny thing is that Sandy didn’t derail my life. Sure, we lost power and the kids missed two weeks of school, but in […]

I Was Supposed to Write Today…

How many times have you made that statement? I was supposed to write, or I’m going to write. Then you never do. Sure, you use the same excuses I do. Life is too busy. There’s not enough time in a day. Yada, yada, yada. I’ve been there. I’m still there. But I realized the real […]

Why We Don’t Write

I haven’t been writing. Chances are, if you’re reading this, you haven’t been writing, either – at least not as much as you’d like. You’ve got a full time job, kids to raise, a home to maintain. Your best friend is going through a tough time right now and desperately needs you. And volunteering at […]
