For the aspiring creators out there, I thought it might be worthwhile to share all that I have going on — and how I’m maintaining my momentum to do so.

I’ve written here in vague, mostly general terms about the types of writing I do — fiction, nonfiction, and business. But I’ve never shared my day and how I keep going between the various works I create.

Currently, I’m blogging 4 days a week. I write about employing genuine, non-toxic positivity on Mondays, ongoing creative process thoughts like this on Tuesdays, Pathwalking mindfulness on Wednesdays, and health, wellness, and wellbeing concepts on Thursdays. Fridays are my podcast aligned with…
