Wow, thank you so much, Beth. I'm thrilled to hear my advice works for you. I know everyone has a different process, and for some it's word count or some other method. But I know too many people who don't write new words for months on end. I do believe we only improve when we put new words on the page and then revise them. That research is important too. Good luck! :) I haven't written anything yet today, so now I'm guilted into taking my own advice. Off to write!

Work for Free?
I'm on the Insecure Writer's Support Group blog  answering the following questions: Should we offer our work for free  for others to profit from?  When is it appropriate, when isn't it? http://www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com/2015/05/should-work-be-offer...

I like that this had a magical twist. It fits the tree photo! 
The Three In The Tree My favorite place to be when everything is green down by the twisted oak to dream of things unseen. The trunk it holds a tale as it was passed to me 'bout lovers that were caught with a witch...

Story
Tagline
"I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all." - James Baldwin
Introduction

I have several short pieces published in anthologies and journals, such as Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Halcyon magazine, 100 Stories for Queensland, 100 RPM, Fangtales, and From Stage Door Shadows. While my published works are for adults, I primarily write for children, and I'm active in the New England chapter of SCBWI (Society for Book Writers and Illustrators). 

I live in Arlington, Massachusetts with my husband, two children, a dog-like cat, and a cat-like dog. For my day job, I work as an aide in a public school, which gives me ample opportunity to observe teens and tweens in their natural habitat.
