>What’s Playing on the iPod right now: “We Need a Resolution” – Aaliyah

In an effort to network on the web with other writers, I came across the website http://www.shewrites.com/

Seems as if they have a lot of valuable resources to writers, regardless of skill level or publishing status.  Maybe I’ll make a connection.  On the novel progress, I have gotten back on a regular writing schedule after my attempt to work two full-time jobs.  I realized that I am too old for that.  All I had time for was to sleep.  Being in a state of constant work left no time for the creative mind to kick in.  Trying to do better.

What’s Playing on the iPod right now: “Ring My Bell” – Anita Ward


As an inspiring published author, this is case for concern.
