Health & PNWA Writers Conference

When I was diagnosed with diabetes back in May it really took my breath away. Over the months I have focused on my health (finally). Getting healthy is my priority now. I’ve found it hard to concentrate on the book. I’ve had spurts, but nothing consistent. I’m deciding that’s ok, for now. I have a goal in mind that will take me into October to accomplish (assuming all goes well). So, writing the book won’t be able to be all consuming for a while.

On an exciting writing note, I’m headed to the PNWA Writers conference this week Thur-Sun. I’m sure I will learn bunches, and be inspired. I’m looking forward to the experience. This will be my first writers conference. I’m pretty pumped up.

For now, I tend my taters, mow my lawn, play a little bass, walk and walk and walk and other such gym type activities like lifting, etc. The itch to write remains.Β

    Good for you focusing on your health. It helped me to just think about my WIP for a few months instead of getting physical words down when my health was iffy – it definitely helped me work out plot issues. My dad was diagnosed with diabetes a fortnight ago – we’re helping him cut down on his sugar intake at the mo (mainly lots of sugar in tea and coffee)! Take care πŸ™‚

  2. Health first! Good priority. Hope you’ll comment on the conference

  3. May you succeed in your goal! πŸ™‚

    I am going to be teaching how to use wordpress to some folks on Tuesday. Any advice I should give to first time bloggers when they write posts?

    No pressure to answer this question if you do not feel like it. I will totally understand.

    Congrats on making the effort to be more healthy! πŸ™‚ that is not always easy for me.

      I think it is important for bloggers to embrace who they are and reflect themselves vs trying to be some other invented person.
      People seem to respond when we share ourselves.
      Have a great class!

      • Thank you πŸ˜€ great advice! I will be sure to pass it on to them.

  4. Good to hear that your health is doing better. The writing will fall into place soon enough.
