In this workshop we will talk about the following:
1. Why focusing on "how to" write fiction will keep you stuck
2. How to get out of your head and start writing
3. What is the real reason behind your excuses to not write your book?
4. The 2 worst enemies for writers and how to conquer them
5. The TWO hero's journeys to focus on to really thrive as a fiction writer
A short guide will be provided with exercises as we go through each topic so you can walk away with tangible steps to begin writing your book, AND create more freedom in your own life.

A realistic Christmas angel - no thin, waving white dress but a thick coat and boots. Actually, these angels also don't need any wings - only pure intentions and a good heart. They are you and me; doing the right things in a world that gets colder and colder.
Even though I don't feel Christmassy, I love making small presents during the season to people that are somehow a part of my life. Nothing big, nothing expensive, just something small that reminded me of them. We don't show people often enough that they are valued for who they are or for what they do. The fading year always reminds me of that.
Being comfortable and doing the things you love are two totally different things. — ☝🏽One requires continuing down the path you’re currently on — ✌🏽The other requires you taking a giant leap of faith and walking blindly down a path you’ve never taken before. —

Salute!!! Salute to all my sisters who are warriors.
Warriors with pure hearts.
Warriors who protect the honour of themselves and others.
Warriors who stand side by side with their sisters through the ugliness through the darkest hrs.
No judgement on what you had to do to be you today.
Warriors who cry with you through tragedy
Warriors who will fight for you and with you by any means necessary.
Warriors who make no excuses for who they are.
Warriors who are comfortable in their woman hood.
Warriors who can stand side by side in battle with men and sisters and come back victorious
They stand next to you with pride and reflect back all your scars and your love.
We are the wild warrior women of light.
Thank you, next next 2018. In all seriousness this has been such a big year of growth and with pain. Last year after healing from my last endometriosis surgery I began to have symptoms that changed everything.... was told by the end of December there was a great chance of a degenerative condition which began to open my eyes to my life. This year has brought so much pain because of that change but I really wouldn’t change any of it. Made me realize who my true friends are, got me closer to my family, gave me opportunities to truly explore my self. A year of sitting back , detoxing and recognizing what I want and didn’t want I began to have that fire in me again... one that made me realize what my dharma is/what it has always been. The last year I been running from it because I just wanted peace but even in the Gita it talks about ignoring your dharma is not living your life to the fullest. I am grateful everyday this year for my friends, family and followers support. The lessons we have shared and laughs/cries. Thank you for joining me on this journey. 2019 is officially the year of joy as well the year of the light warrior 🖤
“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it everyday.” - Henri J. M. Nouwen
Here I am seated between two of my largest paintings that tell a story about healing. In my lap sits the response to a question, “what is enough?” And it is here in the space between and in this moment and in all my moments that I keep choosing joy, again and again.

Here’s my preliminary convention schedule for 2019! I’m hoping to add some more locations to the list if I am able. Excited to kick of January with a “City of Darkness” launch party in Bismarck and Wizard World in New Orleans!
Your purpose is calling you...will you answer? 🧚🏻♂️ Fiction writing is much more than learning a craft. It’s embracing an emotional journey that few will ever complete 🧚🏻♂️ The full video is on IGTV now (In my profile). Discover the purpose of the story you want to write. 🧚🏻♂️
We’re all on a journey of rediscovering self within self realisation. When you find yourself, you find the light within and within every living entity. But first one must journey on inwards to the main door that needs no keys and can only be open within 💛🌻
When you’re stuck in self-doubt, you can’t write your book. ✨ Self-doubt gets triggered when you look for outside answers on how to write your book. ✨ When the answers you seek to begin writing rest within you ✨
