IG Writers December Challenge

Happy Sunday!

I just have to share this Instagram (IG) Writers December Challenge that I came across at midnight, created by  @normalchey on IG

It’s a great way to look at your writing life by posting everyday of December for the challenge listed.  It’s also a great way to get into posting on a regular basis so that you can connect with other writers.

Check me out on Instagram  @hbnorell on IG

Have fun with this, it’s a joyous month to celebrate you as a writer!


Why I Write

I have journaled since the age of 10 or younger. It helped me sort out my emotions. I even took over my mother’s journal when I saw she wasn’t writing in it. Whether with pen to paper or laptop, writing has healed me in so many ways. It can do that for you too.

It’s never too late to get on track with your purpose. All you have to do is ask out loud or ask in a journal, then be open for the signs. #whatsyourpurpose #purpose #Universe #findyourlight

Writer’s Weekend is HERE!

Our writer’s group….. “Skirt’s Up”……..meets weekly but every six months we take a weekend retreat to a TN State Park.  We have time to write, discuss creativity, get to know one another and just have fun.

We’ve been a group since February 2013 and have stayed together despite all of our busy lives.  These women mean so much to me and if it weren’t for them reflecting back to me, I wouldn’t have pursued my writing.  Love and support are truly a gift to give and to receive.

Let’s get this party started!

Camp NaNoWriMo – April 2017

I’m preparing my outline for my first Camp NaNoWriMo, beginning April 1, 2017. I will be rewriting my 40,000+ novel from November Novel 2015. I’m looking forward to being involved in this writing camp, as it pushes me to write more and to stay focused. Who’s with me?
