  1. Hi Pam,

    I love your advice on writers block. I also like Stephen King’s method of over coming writers block in which he says “There’s always a bomb in the closet”… meaning, as a writer one has the ability to let his or her imagination run wild in the moment in any direction they choose in order to move forward in the writing process. For me I call it “Taking it out a whole new door”.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you’ve
    done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  3. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after browsing through many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking
    it and checking back frequently!
