Take one Jack Johnson and call me in the morning.....

It's an ongoing battle for me and maybe it is for you too.

Morale.  Attitude.  Outlook.  Call it what you will, keeping those spirits up as a struggling writer - published or not - is a full time gig.  Maybe because it's such a long process and the warm fuzzies don't come along frequently.  Maybe it's because the winter sun is so impotent this time of year.  Come on Mr. Sun.  You can do better than that.  Maybe it's because the news is full of bad news.  It's so bad I won't even watch it anymore.

Or maybe it's that I'm a self-absorbed jerk.

Whatever the reason, everyone needs a little pick-me-up now and then.  I've found that Jack Johnson is better than any pharmacological product known to man.  

So here, try this.  See if it doesn't work for you too.

I'm going to pick up one of your books this weekend. I loved Clive Cussler before I ever started reading romance, maybe I'll get back into a good adventure/mystery novel...with a male writer. :-)

Your webpage is wildly appealing. I found it by perusing

I find writing is what brings the joy...although, right now, i'm calling myself a liar and wishing the revisions would do I drink a cold beer. LOL have a wonderful weekend.

I hope you enjoy the book!

And yes, beer helps with the writing.....

What kind of dumbass video is that? Swimming round with a guitar and a cartoon monkey.

I prefer the song bout the little whore named Taylor. Yessir, that one gets the Fizz's toes a tappin'.
