I thrive when I have too much to do and, despite what appears borderline nuts to others, I’m happiest when I’m actively engaged in projects and activities that pull me in several directions. While there are occasional moments of recognizing I’ve over-committed myself, for the most […]

You, Your Life, Your Writing by Gwynlyn MacKenzie

Posted Mar 2 2016

  When my children were born, they had two sets of grandparents and two sets of great-grandparents.  They thought nothing of it, safe within the nurturing embrace of a large and loving family.

Posted Feb 17 2016

  O K…so I’ll admit it. The headline of this blog piece is hooey. As far as I can tell, there is no “art” to the process of revising a manuscript. There may be plenty of art in writing and storytelling but the process of revision is all about hard work. Hard work, you say? […]

  I may have blogged about balance before. It’s one of my favorite topics because I believe feeling balanced is one of the keys to happiness.
