Writers Voice And Chatting

Welcome to another episode of my podcast. Today, I didn’t really have anything specific to talk about but I did come up with an interesting subject, that of VOICE. It’s pretty important for a writer to know their voice and what voice even is.

I hope you enjoy it!

Writers Voice And Chatting

Bees and a writer’s visit

If you are an author who is constantly looking for inspiration, I hope this video aids you in that.

#amwriting #amediting #amcreating #creativity #editing #indieauthors #writers #writersblock

In June, I went to Washington State to visit my daughter who was getting married. She was gracious enough to take time out from wedding prep to show me her bees, and how she does things for them. It was a really fun time and I learned a lot. Including the fact that I adore bees and pollinators of all kinds.

A Writer’s Favorite Things and May Milestones

This week I am talking about all of my favorite things and my May milestones. Enjoy!

Why You’re Not Getting Book Sales

Why you’re not getting book sales

Today, let’s chat about book sales and the lack of results…the sales you’re NOT getting.

So, say you wanted to excel as a writer in any genre, but you didn’t know how. Could you do it?

In this video, we’re going to talk about how some writers struggle with finding their sweet spot.

You know what? When you just get started as an author, when you launch your very first book–when you first begin on the publishing journey–it’s exciting and fun and just the thought of readers enjoying your book and going to book events and signing your books for adoring fans, and oh yeah, ALL THAT MONEY you make on doing something you really love to do, it is FANTASTIC!

And certainly, if I can do it, you can do it.

But just because I can and have (13 books so far)-doesn’t mean you can repeat and rinse and come out with the same book sales.

So, to find out more about my thoughts on this subject and also see some fun video of a day at the farmer’s market near my home, check out the YouTube channel video above. If you like it, please consider subscribing.

Positive affirmations for writers

Let’s get POSITIVE!

Positive affirmations. Ah, yes.

Have you ever thought about how much negative self-talk you produce every day? I didn’t either until recently when I found a fellow online that really impressed me with his affirmation ideas. This got me to thinking… and I decided that everyone INCLUDING WRITERS needs positive reinforcements.

So, this week’s video is all about positive affirmations for writers. That’s all writers, young, old, and in-between.

Many people have wonderful positive affirmations like I am beautiful, I am peaceful, I am joyful. But I wanted to say things like, I am a writer. Because sometimes we just need to hear that.

I have put together this little video with voiceover speaking positivity into your ear. I hope it is something that benefits you in the days to come. If you ever need someone to just talk to about writing, well, I am always listening.

Please consider liking, sharing, and subscribing to the Writer Groupie channel over on YouTube. I would love to have you as a fan and follower.

Writer Groupie is also on iTunes if you are a podcast listener. Sometimes it is about writing, sometimes it is about writing mindset. If that sound like something you would be interested in, would you consider adding the podcast to your favs?

Day in the life of an OLDER writer

Today I have uploaded a day in the life vlog for you to the YouTube channel. I have been sick with a sinus cold of some sort for about a week, so I couldn’t really record. It is terrible trying to talk and breathe when your nose is sooo stuffy.

No, I do not think it is Covid. I don’t feel that bad-but I am staying home away from everyone just in case. I have been staying away from people in general all this while, which is another reason I do not think it is Covid. Of course, my hubby works, so there is that possibility that he might have come into contact. He is not sick however, so I really do not buy that either. No, really, I think it’s the same crud I get every winter. Sinuses. Ugh. I am treating as such anyway. My desire is to feel better soon. I have SO much to do.

day in the life
Writing while sick and quarantining

This video has clips from our fun New Years Day of going to the beach, and I end it with some writing (me writing). It is not very informational, and I promise to get to that soon. It’s winter and it’s cold here in Florida, Yeah, I know. But it was 38 when I woke up this morning. That’s cold by anyone’s standards.

DO check back for new videos and podcasts coming soon. If you like this day in the life style of video I will be happy to make more!
