TAYLOR’S TIPS for a more productive you…

Dear Friend,

Something has come over me. I think I’d call it desire. Or maybe ambition. Or maybe just tired of being listless and lethargic and down-in-the-dumps.

listless and lethargic 

Oh, I’ve had reason to be. And most of you know why. Stories have been a bit of a struggle, like water half frozen they’ve flowed slowly. The taps have only been open to a trickle. But it’s time for my writing side to emerge and grow again. For my creative juices to once again flow.

Ever feel like it’s a new start…a new beginning…a new year?

Happy New Year Painted Banner

Wait! It is a new year. A perfect time to set some goals, begin a project, start anew. I think it’s time to crank those faucet handles wide.

I’m ready. Are you?

Hugs and love, and blessings on your work.

Follow your dreams…

What’s Happening:

FCWC is almost here! Join me in sunny FLORIDA the end of February! This will be my first time at the Florida Christian Writers Conference and I am super excited to be teaching two fabulous classes (check out the website and you’ll see a description of both of them). There will be dedicated professionals who will provide YOU the best writers’ conference experience ever. So check it out, make plans, and be there!  Dates: Feb. 26 to March 2, 2014

And a great one is back! Rising from the ashes is the Orange County Christian Writers’ Conference. You might remember this one as OCCWF, but we have new directors, new staff, a well-thought-out website, and a great team of people who want to bring YOU the best writers’ conference they can. This one comes to you in Southern California at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Santa Ana. For a wonderful learning experience, check them out, sign up, and I’ll see you at that one, too. Dates: April 25-26, 2014

    I can do this because I’ve done research on

    Charlie Bear, I guess it’s only fair that you give your mom peep time to talk. I’m so thrilled for her–upcoming conferences, speaking and teaching, and lots more writing! Give her my love, will you?

      Yup, she gets time to share cause she’s so good to me. Here I am right now, this minute, stretched across her lap as she types this to you. I hope that admission doesn’t blow anyone’s mind that I don’t really do my own writing. ha!
      Wiggles to you,

    I don’t think you would have to worry or think about frozen pipes or faucets if you lived anywhere in the Continental United States except some of Calif.(maybe where you live) or deep South Fla. It has been some kind of cold winter even here in South Ga. where the temperature reached a COLD 8-10 Degrees on one night before it crept up to 22 during the day yesterday 1 /08, and that is still too cold for us South Georgians. Take Care BJ & CB and try to stay warm or cool whichever you can and have a Blessed happy and prosperous New Year 2014.

    Woofs and Hugs,

      I hear it’s been SUPER COLD all over the place. Even here, in So California, it’s like in the 40s in the morning (can you believe it?). I go out when they open the door, but don’t take too long to do my thing and I’m right back in. I can just imagine how it is for little furry munchkins all over the US on thrse frigid days.

      Stay warm as you can Beaugie-Buddy.
      Wiggles and woofs,
      Charlie Bear
