Discover Making the Grade by Lily Rede and Jane Gaudet/Win The Ebook

Summer's almost over and I could not be happier.  Crazy, I know, but I'm a creature of habit and September means back to routine and back to pages - you can take the girl out of school (by, ahem, several decades)...I get more done in the autumn than at any other time of the year.  Today I thought I'd talk about writing habits.

“I thought I knew what I wanted but someone forgot to tell me that you have to embrace the ugly in a relationship in order to appreciate the beauty of what you have created between another person and yourself. The following is what happens when you think you can take a short cut but in life, as in love, easy doesn’t come without difficulty, and if you want love to survive, you have to fight for it each and every day.” – Sydney Landvik
