“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” ― Thomas A. Edison Have you ever considered giving up? Good news, you are not alone. I’m going to give you a few example of others who almost pitched in the towel and left […]
Incorporating the concept of the Butt Glue challenge into your daily writing routine can be intimidating, but at the same time seeing that white bottle sitting next to your computer can really give you a mental push to meet your writing deadlines.
Receiving the Butt Glue Challenge, Judy was not to be intimidated by a plain bottle of Elmer’s Glue. In order to regain her muse, she photo shopped a face and designed clothing to give “Elmer”personality. This character enhancement inspired Judy to write, but at the end of the day, she rediscovered that her own true love was her real inspiration for writing romance fiction.
Rhonda’s Kauffman describes here week with the Traveling Butt Glue Challenge.
She spent her childhood running wild on an Idaho mountainside. Although she’s lived across the U.S., she is still an Idahoan at heart and a notorious potato pusher. She has a degree in Human Services and worked as a roofer, a hoofer, a computer data entry operator and a stay-at-home mom.
Music has ruled Jennifer’s world since birth. She shimmied out of the womb with a bad case of Boogie Fever, but soon fell in love with the lyrics, how the words fit together perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle. Jennifer has dreamt of writing romances since reading Wuthering Heights at the tender age of twelve, and now lives that dream, using music on a daily basis to uplift and inspire her writing. It’s no coincidence that Ian, the hero in Mercy of the Moon, uses music to win heroine Maggie’s heart.
She lives in rural Florida with her husband and Great Dane puppy, and enjoys frequent visits from her three grandchildren and three grown children. She feverishly lobbies for the return of breeches and would really love to see her husband of thirty-five years in a pair. Jennifer can be found online at: JenniferTaylorWrites.com
