Trust Your Instincts

Monday again. Second week of summer vacation.  And yes, I’m enjoying every minute.  Still running kids here and there, but no early mornings and no homework.  Couldn’t ask for much more.

 I’m reading a great book called “Finding Your Voice” by Les Edgerton.  Really great stuff.  I found out my opinion counts a lot. LOL  “One of the most beneficial things that can help you become the best writer you can be is to realize that no book, no authority, not teacher, no classic book example, should be absorbed unless it’s ingested with a grain of salt.”  I’m my biggest critic and need to trust my instincts and my own voice more.  It’s what makes my writing different from everyone else.  And that’s what we are supposed to be shooting for.  Yeah, I get to do it my way!  Now that’s something I can totally get into. 🙂

How’s your summer starting off?  Any big vacations planned?

  1. Slow. We took a week off after Grad school finals to have our house painted but didn’t get to go anywhere and it took them 2 weeks instead of 1 to get finished.

    We are supposed to go to Memphis for a few days and visit friends just to get away but I’m not sure when that will be. We have to go somewhere fairly close cause my 16 mo grandbaby will be with us. Planning some pool time and a trip to the Memphis Zoo. Also planning on taking her to the aquarium in Hot Springs one day.

    I just want to have some time to read!!!!

  2. Oh, Heather. Painting is never fun! Glad it’s finally finished. 🙂 Your trip sounds great to me. Kids are so curious and cuddly at that age. I love to see how their eyes and little faces light up at the simplest things. Hope you guys have a blast and that you find that time to Read! LOL

  3. been busy here! Ohio one weekend end. book signing with Liz, this past saturday. Disney and nationals at the end of july and lots of summer weekend stuff in between. I think I’m about ready for fall!

  4. Summer is going to FLY by for me. It’ll be National Conference before I know it.

    I have a local chapter meetings, a wedding, national conference and that’s about it.

    I cannot believe how fast time flies these days.

  5. I am having a great summer! Getting lots of work done on revisions, about to start my new book, working, been having fun and game nights with friends, going out with the girls, watching baseball on the big screen, and I’m going on vacation soon with my high school buddies. Hopefully, Justin will take us dancing in the big city 🙂 I love dancing!

  6. Wish I could have made Nationals work out this year! What a blast that’s going to be. Those of you going will have to share all the great stories when you get back. 🙂

  7. I’m so jealous, Jamie! You are getting writing done and still finding time to have fun. The best of both worlds! 🙂 Hope your trip is wonderful!!
