California, Woman's World, and being grateful

Happy Sunday peeps - I'm back from my author trip to southern California. I drove on the 405 and survived. :) I walked on the beach -several times - which soothed my soul. And I spent time learning about marketing and thinking about my career as an author. I also got to meet up with my agent who chatted with me about possible future pathways.

My best word count was 35000 which for someone who works full time, wasn’t a bad showing. But hope springs eternal (cliché alert). So here’s my top ten ways to get more words down on the page – #10 – Write consistently. I don’t care if it’s every day or every Friday.
