New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

Today #SheInspiresMe : My Mentor






Today #SheInspiresMe : My Mentor





When I was 15, I auditioned for a play and landed a lead role in a college production. The director of that play would soon after become my mentor, teaching me everything she knew about method acting. For roughly six years or so, she gave me lots of time and dedication. Teaching me almost everything I know about the craft of acting, and all with passion and never asking for a penny. Not one penny.









At the same time she was mentoring me she was a single, working mom. And you best believe, I noticed that. It takes a certain amount of strength that I can't even fathom to be a single parent, working to make ends meet, but also taking time for some teenage golfball to train him in acting.









She's been a beast of a mentor. A beast of an inspiration. She even taught me how to parallel park, people. Parallel parking!









Today, for International Women's Day, I recognize Deborah DeWitt. She's stronger than she'll ever know or ever admit.
