    From Yvette's site: http://www.yvettehowell.com


    "My first spiritual experience involved a bright light, a voice, and the feeling of the most incredible enveloping love. It also involved the 2nd grade bathroom of my Oklahoma Grade School. From that moment on, during the next 10 years I spent in a religious cult, I measured everything I knew against the strength of that experience.  I still do. I love the question why. I love the answers I have received. I find people unique, interesting, and beautiful. I have studied Astrology since I was 11, Linda Goodman is my astrological hero.  Tarot drew my interest in 1995 as well as Reiki. I became an Registered Nurse in 1998.  I was widowed at 29.  I had my first and only child at 39. I found out I was pregnant 2 hours before I had her. I love to read and music makes me dance.  The most influential people in my life are my Grandma, my Mother, my Daughter and Louisa May Alcott. I have worked at making false teeth, nursing, and as a professional person locator."

    Writer Resolutions in the New Year

    in Writing

    Happy New Year from the Write Pack Radio. In this episode the Write Pack explores (after we discuss a resolution of a special celebrating Pi day) what kind of resolutions writers might want to make and should avoid.


    Do you have control over the end goal? How far do you plan ahead? What about micro-goals?


    What is the difference between a resolution and a hope?


    What are book ancillaries?


    What are the resolutions of the members of the Write Pack?


    What if you fail? What is failure—real failure? What about the rising bar of success?


    Are there people who claim they are writers and don’t write? What are the realities of writing and how does failure play into it?


    What are unrealistic resolutions writers tends to set (and set themselves up for failure)?
