  1. Hi Candice, it’s been a while – how are you? A nice piece , there is something about words on a person that draws one’s attention. 😉

    • Hello friend! 😀 thanks for stopping by to see about me. New month, New season, New motivation. I am doing well and planning on better. The blast few months my blog has been neglected and thus my #blog battle community. My the grace of God, that season is all over. And yes, the words on the arm are a sure way to grab a person’s attention. Thinking of giving the prompt a try?

      • Hi Candice, good to hear from you – I won’t give the prompt a try, I’m right up against life at the moment, I’m trying to fit in my new magazine, the blog, writing, working, family, breathing and sometime eating and I’m finding time is in short supply . As it is I’m goofing off lol
        But thanks for asking me, it’s appreciated and if I can sometime I will! 🙂

      • Lol sometimes eating. There’s always time for good treats! You sound like me with your projects. I still have a way to go with mine and deadlines I’d like to meet, but I needed to put the blog back in a place of priority, so I understand you.

      • I need to keep the blog going as it’s not only a social thing for me but a platform to present things that I’m doing. I guess that’s similar for you as well. It’s good to see you back though – I hope to see you more too! 🙂

      • That is the plan! I’m refining the blog as you can see and learning how to better build my social platforms for my writing career. We are all busy bees.

      • We are, we have to be ready before our great works are complete.
        Ill have to look at your blog and see what youve been doing. I’m trying to think of new things for mine.
        I’m always trying to change it in all kinds of ways.
        Any ideas welcome…
        Are you in Wattpad?

      • Nope, not on Wattpad, although BlondeLucy has told me I should get on there. For me, I’ve been trying to have a more concise Menu and consistent postings, so I guess to that end to have consistent postings each week…just a thought 🙂

      • I’m trying to get to a similar place myself. Lucy told me about it too… I’ve just gone on and I’m putting on my short stories.

      • I’m still mulling it over lol…we shall see what happens after I get these other projects finished. 😉

      • Yes, I have. I am focusing on finishing 3 novels before this years end. One I should be able to self-publish by fall. Another should be ready for beta-reading before the summer and the 3rd, Ascension Graveyard, is being rewritten so although I’d like to have it done FINALLY by the end of April, we shall see. Also, doing a lot of learning and research on how to properly market and sell my jewelry line so that has been put back into the shadows for better polish. That’s it in a nutshell I suppose.
