Death, Life and Writing

It’s been an interesting year, starting last October, when I almost died from pneumonia, heart problems and pulmonary blood clots. While it’s been both an interesting and scary experience, it’s also been a blessing. Mainly because all the tests showed a problem that I still would not know about, and that would have mega-serious consequences in the future. Now it’s (almost) a thing of the past… just one more simple treatment and then some more healing time. And I’ll be fully back in the saddle.

But all this physical stuff has certainly put a crimp in my writing agenda. Which is why my poor little blog here hasn’t been updated in a while. But I’m revamping, simplifying, and actually making it lots better. So I just wanted to give you a teaser today… what you can look forward to.

Think increased writing skills. Think accessing your inner truth. Think a lot of fun in a small amount of time. Think Hump Day…

Yes, that’s right. I’ll be launching the revamped version of Woman of 1,000 Words (with a new sub-category of its own) this Wednesday, and posting every Wednesday – rain or shine, health not withstanding. My aim is to get your creative juices flowing, help you hone your skills and have a great time doing it. Curious? Intrigued? Be sure to check back on Wednesday. Every Wednesday. You’ll be glad you did.
