Top Ten Twitter Tweets of February 29, 2020


Good Authoring Day to YOU 

This past week, I completed the first round in Denver Women’s Press Club’s Unknown Writers Contest. Interesting, enlightening and fun. Some shined; some needed a lot work. All put the toe in the potential publishing waters … and that’s the prize. You can’t achieve anything unless you stick commit to participating.  To take a leap.

Today is the last day of February … Leap Year’s day of glory. What will you do? What will you do to plan to leap into authoring and publishing success? What expansion of “water” will you put your toe in?


Alert to all of you in Colorado who are VIP AuthorYOU members … the third of the Saturday AuthorYOU Salons of the year is slated for March 14th.  It starts at 8.30 a.m., ending at 11.30 a.m. Bring socks—I share these with the homeless … and it’s going to be chilly this winter. Plus, a snack to share with the group.


Friday mornings are the place to be with other authors! I love the Friday coaching that happens early each Friday AM. I always have a “new tip” for the group, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”. Become a subscriber so you can get
