Writers who are serious about writing, understand the seasons of struggle.
Writers also may become discouraged. It is hard to explain to people who do not write, the energy needed to write.
I stumbled on this song today, and I thought this may possibly, encourage you to keep on trying. Keep on writing even if you fear failure.
From Tuesday April 23, to Monday April 24, I am leading a movement on all of my social media and other online areas focused on Women Leaders.
Below is one of my featured books. I was surprised to find a 5 star review on Amazon. The book is available on Kindle on Amazon, and you may also purchase a paperback copy directly from me. Purchase directly from me for $8.00.
To purchase directly from me email me at- Nancy@Relationsihpswithnancy.com
This is the 5 star review. Short and precise to the point. Most women will be able to take encouragement and stamina from the reading. (Rita)

A few weeks ago I decided it was time to buckle down, stop procrastinating, sit in the chair and finish this book! It is Volume 1 of a series.
As writers it is important to check out of a few places, and projects in life to finish the task. Otherwise we will be an author of books, that were never written.
Today my paperback proof copy arrived. It is exciting to hold the first copy in my hands. As writers I am sure you may feel the same.
As soon as I opened up the book, I noticed a couple of errors. This is why it is important if possible, to order a hard copy of our book in our hands.
Quotes from the Heart will be released next week.
I will step into finishing the book on community. The Community book is a 3 year project. The research is finished and a rough outline is in place.
AND AT THE SAME TIMe
I will be working on my memoir. Writing from the depths of my heart.
2019 is my year of completion. I hope you will choose the same.
From my desk to yours, wishing you well.
This morning I opened my eyes to the land of snow.
I enjoy sitting at my desk today, because life only requires me to go outside for a short time.
This morning I opened my eyes to the land of snow. I enjoy sitting at my desk today, because life only requires me to go outside for a short time.
I live in a place where we are to share snow removal duties for our small porch, but usually I am the one who grabs the shovel and gets the job done!
I try to remind myself, this provides me with my cardio workout without going to the gym. It costs me nothing!
In this season of my life, the majority of what I am doing requires me to sit. This means I need to intentionally get up and get going!
I will be back with a 2nd post to share an inside look on my current marketing, for my writing. Then I will be working on the cover and back of the book, “Quotes from the Heart for Women Leaders.”
I will share a little about podcasts, interviews and linking arms with others.

Your writing friend,
Groan, groan, groan…
Have you ever silently groaned on the inside, because you were so, so tired?
For me tonight is a night of I am shouting in the inside, “I am tired!!!”
Yet, it is not a tiredness, because I have not had enough rest.
It is a tiredness, because I worked HARD today. I was productive today!
I am in a season of trying my best to write 1000 plus words for my memoir.
I am making it through, missing a couple of days, but I catch up the next day.
My writing includes hours of writing letters. The old fashion kind, place a stamp on it type of letters. This is good, because our world is now recognizing, the need for online mail, and offline mail.
I am writing a lot of copy these days. Copy for book marketing. Copy for the conference I lead. Copy for raising finances to expand, “The Relationships of the Heart Boot Camp.”
(I will share my copy at the bottom of this post.)
As a writer in today’s world it is important to have an online platform, and connected with people before a book launches and we are running out the gate.
For me I have one book to be published before the end of 2018. 2 more to be published in 2019!
Writing, pounding the keys. and continuing on. For now, I shall shut my eyes, for the keyboard will be at my desk tomorrow, waiting for me.
My latest work below…

The dark side is a lonely place. It is not a place of community, because in order to write we must be alone. It is not a time of chatting with others. It is a time of pushing through with our writing.
For some authors a dark side of writing exists. It is the place where our conscious mind enters the scene as we write about emotional pain, grief, suffering, or destruction.
We my cry and feel pain whether we are writing fiction or non-fiction. We may become angry, and frustrated. There will be occasions in this place, where we will want to quit.
This is the dark side of writing. The self-doubt, the self criticism, the questioning of ourselves, wondering if what we write is good enough for others to read.
The dark side is a lonely place. It is not a place of community, because in order to write we must be alone. It is not a time of chatting with others. It is a time of pushing through with our writing. Even if we cry as we write about our life experience or a fictitious situation, the emotion is deep and sometime turns into darkness.
When the moment of darkness arrives we must remind ourselves, this is all part of the journey and life of a writer. The dark side of a writer is necessary. For this is the place where our emotions will flow out into our writing.
Without darkness, there is no comparison to joy, and laughter. Without laughter and joy there is no comparison for darkness.
The key is, when we find ourselves wading into the dark side, we must be sure we do not stay in this place.
In the middle of today I stepped into the dark side of writing. As I finished, I looked out the window and the sun is shining brightly and soon I will venture out for a walk, to ensure, I step back out into the beauty of life.
Staying in the darkness is not an option…
