Spring Hiatus

Well, obviously February's blogging plan didn't happen...such is the way of so many good intentions. And due the to recent adventures of writing and life, the posts here will continue to be fewer for awhile.

But fear not!

You can still keep up with both the writing adventures and greyhound adventures at my primary website:

Or join a true writing adventure as I work my way through The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass at Beyond Words On The Page.

I look forward to keeping in touch around the internet on Facebook and Twitter too!

Until later, best wishes from Regan's Realm for your own reading, writing and life adventures!

Post Super Monday

Well, every day will be a Super day in New Orleans for a long while...and that's wonderful!

I am a Colts fan, having lived in Indy for many years, and I was disappointed that my team lost, but in the interest of sportsmanship, the Saints had a great win!

Bruce Nolan of the Times -Picayune has a great article on what the season and this ultimate win meant to the city, fans and the team.

The Saints have faced so many challenges individually and as a community and it's wonderful to see them on top of the world!

Drive, determination, heart and faith combined to carry them through a nearly undefeated season and culminated in a marvelous moment last night that will live on and inspire others to reach their own utmost potential!

Congratulations to The Saints!

Write Stuff Wednesday

There are lots of themes and declarations in February: President's Day, Black History, Valentine's Day - just to name a few biggies. Lots of heart awareness and health awareness goes along with February too.

But since I write with a bent for the paranormal and the romantic (and I have two career fairs coming up) I'll focus my blogging this month on LOVE - specifically as it applies to what you do and who you know.

Here's a quote from Ray Bradbury to kick things off: "Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for."

While it's truly impossible to love every single aspect of every duty within a career, you'll never be happy if you don't love anything about it.

Being an author has specific (solitary) challenges, so it's important to find joy - and yes love - in what you're writing. When you spend that much time with yourself and your story, you need to be sure it's something to live for!

Happy February!
