Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

It’s SPRING … the heart of it … tis the week that transformation happens across our landscapes. Outdoor eating lures us to relaxing a tad to enjoy nature’s palette unfolding. And for those with allergies—that would be a miserable ugh as some of the sprouting leaves and flowers aren’t for them.

It’s cooking for the family day, celebrating my grandson’s birthday. His fave dinner is on the menu. Rack of lamb.

It’s Caturday … Remember to bring your passion to the party when you settle into write. The words you use are felt by your readers. And by you.

That’s me for this Saturday … how about you … what are you up to?

Friday mornings are the place to be with other authors! I love the Friday coaching that happens early each Friday AM.
