An Open Letter to My Inner Mean Girl

Hey, Sis,

I confess that when I’m talking about you to my friends I call you my inner mean girl. But, to be honest, I know you’re not really mean.

I know that hurt people hurt people. And you, I, we have been hurt.

We’ve been disappointed, embarrassed, picked on and taken advantage of. And you don’t want any of that to happen again.


Word for the Year 2023

What’s your word for the year 2023?

Choosing a word for the year is something I’ve done for over a decade now and it’s a practice I’ve passed on to the women of the See Jane Write Community too.

I believe everyone — especially women writers — should choose a word to serve as their theme for the year.


23 Questions for 2023

A new year is almost here and while I plan to spend much of these final weeks of 2022 relaxing and hanging out with friends and family. But the goal digger in me is also plotting plans for 2023. 

Near the end of the year, I always take time to ask myself a series of questions to help me set goals for the year to come. 

If you need help setting your goals for 2023, be sure to join me for Write the Vision: 2023 #GoalDigger Workshop. The workshop is set for Sunday, December 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. CT. And it’s FREE!

Here are 23 questions I’m journaling about in preparation for 2023.
