    Wishing for the warmth of a Vacation – #ROW80

    Original image via Bing Creative Commons, courtesy of     “If winter came every ten years, then half of my life would be filled with nonstop gardening.” Cold… Winter is always too cold for me. This must be a sign of ageing. I remember when I was a kid I would spend hour after hour outside in the cold, it didn’t matter whether or not the temperature had dropped below zero. I still loved being outside, sledding and what not. I can’t help but think about how things seem to change the older one gets. I’m counting down to the spring. Next month is maple sugaring time. March is…

    Writing to Thrive

    Today is the third Saturday of the month which means it is my monthly Monadnock Writers’ Group meeting. First off, I want everyone to know – I stepped out of my box. That’s right, out of my comfort zone. I did this by being the ten minute speaker this morning. That means I had to stand up in front of the group and read for ten minutes. It went well. I read an excerpt from Road Salt, the second chapter, and it was well received. Even though I was feeling shaky about the whole ordeal I did it. This may have brought my confidence level up one more notch. We…

    Speaker at the Bow Meeting #ROW80 #RWA

    Yesterday I became officially hooked into the Romance Writers World. That’s right, now I am a member of the NH Chapter too. This is a good thing.

Next weekend I will be attending the meeting at the Monadnock Writers’ Group at the Peterborough Library on Saturday. They too will have a…

    Joni B. Cole visits The Monadnock Writers’ Group

    Here we are in the month of September and fall is quickly closing in on us. Why is it that summer always seems to go by so quickly and winter, even though it averages the same length of time, drags on and on and on? With it being September it also means it is time for my local writing group to begin its monthly meetings. I belong to the Monadnock Writers’ Group. We meet the third Saturday of every month in the lower portion of the Peterborough Library. Our group meets from September to June, and then we take a break for the summer months. All but two of these…

    Weekend Warrior

    I guess I am a Weekend Warrior when it comes to writing. Do you have a particular day where you find that you have the highest success at finding your word count for your work in progress? I do. It is Saturdays and Sundays. Those are my two days where I can sit undisturbed all morning long and write like there is no tomorrow. Unless there is a meeting I need to go to that day as was the case last Saturday and this coming Saturday. From now on, I am going to try to focus more of my writing time around both of these two days, with the exception of…
