If you’re like me, the only thing more satisfying than reading a good book is telling your friends about it! I am in a couple of book clubs that meet regularly. The one that I manage with my friend T from Nite Lite Book Reviews Our dear friend Laura, who now has moved back to snowy beautiful N.M., wanted to start a book club at our work. We all worked in the same department at a record label in Burbank. The idea formed and viola! There we were. This was many many years ago and we’re still going strong. Some of us have worked together, but a lot of us are just friends who love to read. We are an opera singer, music publisher, music label director, speech pathologist, lawyer, environmental activist, and more. I love our book club. It’s one of the few nights out I don’t mind staying out late for. (Late for me now is 9:30pm given that my baby can get up as early as 5am the next morning! What I love about book clubs: It brings together a group of people who may not have known each other outside of the club. Sure, the core of us know each other through work, but our book club expanded mostly because someone met someone who a.) liked books and b.) thought was nice enough to...Read More

November is here and that means a lot of people chatting about NaNoWriMo. That’s National Novel Writing Month to all of you peeps out there. I haven’t participated in a very very long time. Have you been thinking about writing a novel? or trying to take your writing to a new level? This might be the time to do it! 5 reasons why I’m joining NaNoWriMo this year – I’m not writing. Like, at all. I used to write a lot. But everything changed when my baby was born and I never got back into the writing swing. I am going to use this month as a way to really focus on writing again, making it a priority, getting up early to get the creativity out. Usually by the end of the day I am so tired, the last thing I want to do is write. I’m hoping this month will allow me to refocus, and hopefully, finish my WIP. I’m a happier person when I’m writing. Not only because I enjoy it, but because I feel like a more complete and productive person when I write. I experience the world differently when I’m actively writing and by doing it everyday, I feel more accomplished. This in turn makes me a happier person, which makes me a better mom/wife/friend. I am satisfied...Read More
