Now or Never November

You may have been hearing about this Now or Never November program I've been talking about of late. I thought I would share this program a little bit more in detail with you so your questions may be answered. National Novel Writing Month starts on November 1 and it's to encourage writers to write between 30-50K words in 30 days. Last year, over 300,000 writers joined in on the journey from all across the nation. This is an event that is taken all over the world! I know that Libraries are getting in on it as my local library is having their... Read More

Be Daring Enough to Dream Big with Coach Renee Gray

Today, I want to talk about my friend and coach, Renee Gray. Renee is a business coach and owner of Dare to Dream Life Coaching. She coaches high achievers that are usually CEOs of big companies or powerful people who are in a role of strong influence. She doesnt work with just any CEO or leader, she works with people whose job is to boldly serve others instead of themselves because they know that their business is beyond what they are doing now. One day, I was searching for coaches in my local area and I came across Renees website. I... Read More


Does Meditation and Writing Go Hand in Hand?

Does Meditation and Writing Go Hand in Hand?

Today I'm discussing how meditation and writing goes hand in hand. As writers, we tend to get stuck frequently, feel like our writing is boring, or come to a halt because we have ran into a problem and cannot think through it. Meditation can help with this as we quiet our minds and relax. I believe as a writer myself, I'll start a dialogue in my head or compare my work to others or even myself on a good day! I want to write my best for every person I work for, but sometimes I feel like I can't give my best because I am not really... Read More

A Writer's Review of the 2015 Literary Connection

Every year, Laramie County Community College (LCCC) puts on a Literary Connection where the college invites two authors and speakers to come to Cheyenne to talk with the writing community. This year they invited Allen Kurzweil, author of The Whipping Boy , and poet George Bilgere. Both have been nominated and recognized in the creative writing world. Last year, I attended both days, one being a free day and the next a paid day (only $30) where LCCC has great food, snacks, and all day coffee. I had a good time with my writing buddy,... Read More

Tips and Tricks to begin Writing

Are you one of those people who want to write, but don't know where to start? Writing is a skill that you have to train yourself. You may never be a Stephen King, but you don't want to be him because you're uniquely your own! Writing takes time to master and it's not something that happens over night. Look at your favorite hobby or interest; did you perfect that over night? No! You had to work at it to get better at it! Sure, it came easier than the rest, but you are always learning, expanding, and growing in your talents, hobbies,... Read More

Authentic Happiness

Today I want to do things a little differently. I want to talk to you about a book I've been reading. Well, it's more like a devotional book that I have been reading for months now and enjoy every minute of it. Let me introduce you to Authentic Happiness: Devotions for the Slumbering Believer by Sarah Rowan. This book was given to me by my Aunt while I was in Georgia in May 2015. She knew the author for they worked at the same Christian retreat together. My Aunt brought me and my sister the book with Sarah signing it for us. I began... Read More

What I learned in my First Year of Entreprenuership

September marks my one year anniversary since creating Monica Writes and starting out on my own. Since opening, my focus has shifted, my goals have changed, and my horizons has gotten BIGGER. Much BIGGER. I am now on a completely different path than what I was on when I first started. Like all entrepreneurs, we all make common mistakes like charging too little, offering every kind of service we can underneath Gods bright sun to get clients, desperately networking, and not having a niche. But even these mistakes could not have prepared... Read More

The Importance of Reading for Professional Speakers

I have heard it over and over that in order to succeed, you must read. I know what some of you are thinking, I dont have time to read! I may agree with you because I feel the same way. However, reading is not only important, but its vital to your expertise and how you can perceive yourself towards others. Get a competitive edge. When you read whats in your field, then you are becoming a better businessman/woman and a better expert. Youre learning from the best to become better. Knowledge is power, right? When you invest into books,... Read More

Stop Living an Unfulfilled Life

Theresa Meyer was struggling. I was really struggling with relationships in my life. It wasnt just romantic relationships, but it was also relationships with my family and friends. My relationships at work were really affecting my life as well. I couldnt hold a job for more than a few years before leaving frustrated and blaming someone at work. She started to notice a pattern in her behavior that was following her around like a plague. I could see patterns of how my relationships were going, even though I was trying really hard to...
