Making A Plan To Read, Write, and Relax!

Mindful Planning Gets It Done

This summer I created a simple way to plan out what I want to accomplish over the months of July and August. While I have a lengthy “To Be Read (TBR)” list that has been growing over the past six months, I also have writing projects in progress, along with some plans to get organized. To get myself started, I made a very simple planning page, along with a calendar for July and August that will help me accomplish my goals. There are ideas for use posted on the first page.  Click the link and feel free to make a copy.  Mini Mindful Summer Planning & Calendar
Highlight On A Professional Text:

I recently wrote a review for Middle Web on John Schu’s book The Gift of Story. To say I enjoyed reading this book is an understatement. Mr. Schu writes from the heart and goes beyond simply identifying story elements when summarizing or sharing a synopsis of a book. Please click on the link above to learn more about this amazing book.
