Are Bloggers "Starving Artists?"

Here are some truisms about “starving artists:”
  • Most artists will indeed continue to produce work throughout their lives whether or not they ever receive payment, sufficient compensation, or recognition for his or her work, simply because they want to.
  • However, most artists like to be paid for their work rather than continuing as a “starving artist.”
  • Some artists “go commercial,” attempting to combine their…

If Bird Can Shoot, You Can Flow

One great writer once told me that some people have it, some people don’t.



And then you have Larry Bird, one monstrous, awkward cement mixer in the middle of the basketball court. He should be just standing there and get paid, you know what I mean? He’s an OBSTACLE not a basketball player! And yet, he’s one of the most amazing players known to man. Apart from that lithe speed-of-light Jordan guy. Phew!!



Larry Bird who moves at a speed so slow, I could beat him to the net.… Continue

Tome of the Mommy: Romance (writing) in the Bedroom

Writing is in the blood, as well as the heart and the mind. J.K. Rowling may be the most famous (and most successful of us, but many of the writers I know are are women who, like me, have families and all the complexities that implies, but still find the time to slip out a book or two (or more!) of erotic romance a year. This… Continue

Tomatoes, Fish and Blogs

No, it's not a list of ingredients for a weird recipe, just a list of things I have to remember to maintain, and all of which start out with the best of intentions, ending up in a few straggly brown plants, an algae-covered tank, and a bad case of writer's block.



To explain how these odd ingredients actually do connect, I'm borrowing a line from Alan Jay Lerner, the lyricist & playwright (for My Fair Lady, Camelot, etc.). In his memoir, he wrote that he became a theatre writer… Continue

Find Your Passion - And Pursue it!

I just came back from “Mom’s’ Night Out – Women Who Make a Difference,” an event organized by Beth Feldman from rolemommy.com. It was wonderfully inspiring to hear Lee Woodruff talk about her journey after her husband Bob suffered a brain injury in Iraq, Alison Tepper Singer’s advocacy for autism that grew out of her daughter being diagnoses as autistic, and Lauren Candela-Katz’s involvement in fundraising. All of them, including Beth, stressed that they are doing what they are passionate… Continue

The Coach is BACK!: Get Inspired 2 Write!

Say Hello to The Creativity Coach!



My coaching practice and my website have been in hiatus for several months. I truly appreciate my clients (and potential clients) for being so patient with my reconstruction. As I am always committed to bringing you closer to your inspired life, I had to take into consideration my own inspiration.

EClass: How to become a freelance writer

My holiday gift to YOU

Okay - I never usually do things like this on my blog, but I'm feeling very taken by the holiday spirit - and wildly grateful for all that YOU give me by reading this blog, commenting with your brilliant and strong thoughts, telling your friends & colleagues about Writing Roads and being part of my community.



So, I'd like to give you a gift, but only one of you (even though I appreciate you all equally). But, it wouldn't be me if I made this really easy and un-fun. So here is… Continue

Thanks for the welcome!

Well ladies. Here we are. Sitting in front of our secret hide away-but really not very secret at all isn't it? Divulging in stories, photo's, opinions...ourselves. I like this place. I am a jaded blogger. But, I think I have been re-ignited. I've been blogging for a while. However, my style is a little different. I have seen what other mothers were blogging about and I liked it, laughed, cried and enjoyed them...but found a little bit on the topics I like to cover. I like to talk about moms… Continue

I write and speak on behalf of mental health awareness. I am an advocate and an activist.



I've lived with depression my entire life, managed well with medication for the last several years. I also have two children with bipolar disorder. In our extended family this illness affects nearly a dozen others. I know the challenges. I also know the possibilites and blessings. I work hard to share a vision of acceptance, treatment, recovery, wellness and joy. All are possible!
