I invite you to join me for a cup of coffee and a conversation. Tomorrow is Halloween which means different things to different people. There is magic in the air!

If We Were Having Coffee
I would tell you it is Scorpio Season! I have been learning more about the moon and how it connects to astrology and what that means for writing and business. Many of you know I follow the moon closely, but noticing what sign the moon is in is a new learning for me.
I would tell you the last few weeks have been full of travel for me. We had fall break so we traveled to Florida for my soon to be in laws’ 63rd wedding anniversary! Then we went camping in the Northlands of Minnesota and we picked up a canoe from Piragis. I love to travel and it is fueling for my writing, but it messes up my schedules! There is always a need for flexibility there and I can write anywhere. I can also join writing classes from the truck while we are driving! I have been struggling with my public and private writing and how much I truly want to share. With my writing craft, I am on the brink of a transition for leveling up and the awareness of what I am doing well and not doing well is assisting in the transition. I have been getting some feedback which is helping me see through a new lens.
I would ask you if you caught my hint in the last paragraph…Yes! I have amazing news to share! I am engaged and getting married! I am so happy and there has been a great tangle of life to get here. It makes me appreciate all the abundance in my life. Chris proposed in front of the campfire with a gorgeous ring. I am a lucky woman and happier than I have ever been.
I would tell you my inbox fills up when I am not working on it every day. It inspires me to unsubscribe from newsletters I do not read often. I have to do a binge unsubscribing every couple of months it seems. I do not feel that I am subscribing to more things either. It is a weird spider web of connections.
Do you need a refill? Would you like some ice water?
I would tell you I have been part of some exciting classes these past few weeks! I love the variety of classes I can take. One class was Amber Sparks’ about Gothic Fiction last Saturday which was full of info and resources. Another was with Francine Witte.
I would tell you I have a more expanded role at the Sarah Selecky Writing School. I am excited to add this layer to my work starting tomorrow. My Intensive class is amazing as well. We are on a rest week and recharging for the work ahead.
I would tell you I did get a walk in today just before it rained. It was wonderful to hike the trails in Minnesota but there is some wonderful color in the dying leaves here. There were some tiny squirrels there too who are likely to show up in one of my short stories. Look at his eyes!!
I would tell you my PUSH group is looking for new members! We meet on Mondays (usually) and always share wins, write together and then have a conversation related to writing. For more info you can check out the details here.
I hope your Sunday and the coming week are filled with rest, growth, great food, and what you need.
Thank you for joining me for a coffee chat. I hope to see you next weekend!
