Just read this and had to share couse I am having a great day!
 "AA Thought for the Day
January 31, 2015
Easier, Softer WayWhen I couldn't find an easier, softer way, I looked for the person with the magic wand, the one person in AA who could make me all better, right now.  This was a frustrating task, and I finally realized that if I wanted this life, I was going to have to do what the others had done. No one made me drunk, and no one was going to make me stay sober. This program is for people who want it, not people who need it.- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 315
Thought to Ponder . . .I am worth staying sober for.
AA-related 'Alconym' . . .B E S T = Been Enjoying Sobriety Today?

Share before publishing

This article [SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK]: SHELTER US, PART 2 Posted BY LAURA NICOLE DIAMOND on She Writes grabbed my attention. Laura tells how she shared her book Shelter Us before she published.
I have shared the coming out of VIRGINS, my paranormal breakthrough novel, and the first in my ROLO series, for several months. I am still working on edits after I sent it yet another editor and friend I really trust.
Once done, I think I will download the first few chapters, about 30 pages into a PDF, and offer them for free. To those that read them and send me a review, I will provide the rest of the book on a PDF for free.

Ten Things We Learned About Self-Publishing - The Writing Platform

I was going to be lazy about this post and just let you read it. You probably would have been better off with that but what the heck. Here is my take on it dear prolific, fantastic, author; it's no longer about getting discovered, it's about peddling until you triumph or fading into the could have been page.

Drink in our today

This Buddhist saying, "Suffering is clinging to that which changes" is so to the point. We have nothing but today and maybe tomorrow, yet some of us, yes I am included in that, spent too much time regretting the past, too much time is even minutes. Yes, we can learn from what we did wrong and bask in what we did right but too much regretting and basking can keep our present and future prisoners to the past. So, let's spread our wings and drink in our today. Buenos dias a todos.
