Have you ever felt like the social media part of your writing life is similar to your household when one thing goes wrong and spirals into numerous issues? Broken door knob, crooked cupboard door, leaky faucet, broken pool cover, a toilet running whenever it so chooses, etc.

Similarly, in the writing side of life, email trouble, social media icons showing up as ? symbols, updates needed on blogs and websites, outdated copyright year dates, computer issues, etc.

Sometimes the overwhelming feeling of both leaves me feeling stuck. Stuck doing household duties when I'd rather spend time with family or reading. Stuck doing marketing updates and items when I'd rather be writing something new or editing a current WIP.

Hence, I just ordered a book I recently saw suggested--SIMPLE ACTS OF MOVING FORWARD: 60 SUGGESTIONS FOR GETTING UNSTUCK by Vinita Hampton Wright.

You can find it here

It just arrived, and I can't wait to start reading and learning.  Stay tuned...


  1. Oh, yes. I hear you. Sometimes life is overwhelming. And I don't even have children to take care of. Add a washing machine where all the water leaked out. I do have a nice mopped floor, however.

    As for social media, it's almost impossible to keep up with it all. Hang in there.

    The book looks interesting. Let us know if it helps. Have a good week.

    1. It is always something, isn't it, Beverly? Thanks for the comment. I will definitely let you know about the book. It does look interesting.

      Have a great week as well, thank you!
