Simmering Along Nicely

As I write this on a rainy Sunday afternoon, BlackLion and I have just put the finishing touches on Open Your Creative Portals. We’re working on making a “landing page” for it on my Starcat’s Corner website, so folks can sign up for my brand-new newsletter and claim the e-book as their free gift! Woo hoo!

Here’s a peek at the cover; BlackLion did the adorable artwork. His images of Fay and her friends are sprinkled throughout the book.


I love how it came out! And I’m very excited to share it with everyone, most likely starting tomorrow. Yippee!!!

Let’s see, what else have I been up to?

All my projects are simmering along nicely, it seems. I had a good response on my survey about daily spiritual practice (DSP), and I’m working on putting the data together in a spreadsheet so I can evaluate it and use it to write chapter 2. I added 815 new words to the DSP book on Friday, and I’m now at 11063 words, on the way to a target of about 50K (though it may end up being less; we’ll see). I wrote and sent a book review, and started reading another book that I’ll be reviewing. I also wrote a blog post for Starcat’s Corner yesterday.

I received a big box of copies of my second book, Cultivating Self-Love: Your Path to Wholeness. After I posted about it on Facebook, I got a message from a local shop-owner. A friend had connected me with her this spring, and she is interested in carrying copies of both my books. We set up a date for a book-signing at her shop in September. So that’s another exciting piece of news!

As I write this update, I’m starting to get goosebumps. I’ve been pouring so much joyful energy into my business and creative projects lately, and in this moment I’m realizing how much fruit it’s bearing. I feel overwhelmingly thankful and blessed!

Since setting “mini-goals for the week” seemed to help last week, I’ll do it again. Maybe I’ll make it a regular Sunday thing. Here they are:

  • Work on the DSP e-book at least 5 days.
  • Finish landing page and offer Open Your Creative Portals to the world!
  • Keep up with my blogging schedule.
  • Write and send monthly Kind Over Matter guest post.
  • Order copies of my first book, for sale at events this summer and fall.

I hope your writing week is full of creative inspiration and forward momentum!
