Author Update #4: Better Late Than Never

This week’s update was recorded on time but not posted. Still better late than never! And more importantly, that I am not letting no sleep and bad news keep me from doing them. Of course, it helps that no one is watching. Although part of me then says that is a horrible thing. Why keep talking to a camera and making an ass of myself if no one is watching! Then the other part chimes in that is exactly the right time to be making an ass of myself and getting used to it – before people do start to watch!

Again, not edited, but you get to see the camera fall off and I cant turn it off. All in the name of a learning curve my friends!

Cheeky Update

A bit of a cheeky update.

Last week on my planned video update my little boy was sent home from daycare with a stomach bug. He has been home ever since. However, I have been doing an almost daily video challenge on Facebook – minus the days he has been home sick. So here is this week’s update, a little late and about what makes my work different from others!

It allows you to work out where your content can be funneled down and cross-promoted into a comprehensive marketing plan.

The Barn Is Burnt Down

2016 was an intense year for me. I straddled what I thought was the chasm between being a mother and being a writer and being everything in the world I thought I should be. My baby went to Kita (daycare) and I thought all the struggle I had would magically disappear and I would be able to divide my life into woman and writer during daycare hours and super mommy from 4 30 pm on. I want to go back and give that poor frazzled woman a hug. Not that her heart was not in the right place. But she should have known that there is no magic wand. There is a helping hand and with it you can create space to do the work, but it is not an outstretched hand that allows you to get the momentum going to completely leap over the work altogether.

And yet, now, after having that lesson retaught to me (that tricky ego that gets too confident and falls into old traps damn it) I feel so good. Like surprisingly good. Maybe what a butterfly feels like after they have been liquefied inside of its cocoon. (I won’t get too far ahead of myself though, I know this is a start not the end!)

And although I have never seen this quote before, twice this week from two sources I found it. In Brene Brown’s Rising Strong and in the Be Your Own Beloved Course. (Neither link affilate). And sometimes you realize the universe does just sync up for you!

When the universe is trying to tell you something
