Smorgasbord Reblog – Writing as Therapy – Releasing our thoughts on paper by D.G. Kaye

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Relationship expert Debby Gies – D.G. Kaye shares her thoughts on the therapeutic benefits of writing in any form that allows you to release and express your thoughts and emotions.

Writing as Therapy – Releasing our thoughts on paper by D.G.Kaye

We use our writing to convey our thoughts, ideas, and to tell stories. For many of us, writing is a personal outlet to communicate our feelings and opinions. Writing can be a therapeutic exercise, enabling us to release what may be stifling our well-being, offering us freedom to release our locked up emotions onto paper.

An abundance of articles and books have been written on helpful methods to release our inner turmoil. Using methods such as writing a letter to ourselves or directly to someone whom we feel we need to express our thoughts and feelings about circumstances that plague us internally is an excellent release. I’ve used this…

Caturday funnies

bluebird of bitterness

While having lunch at a sidewalk cafe, an antique art collector noticed a scruffy-looking cat lapping up milk from a saucer. The collector realized with a start that the saucer was a rare and valuable piece. Trying to act nonchalant, he went to the cafe owner and asked if the cat was his.

“She’s just a stray,” said the owner. “I gave her some milk because I felt sorry for her.”

“I’ll give you five dollars for her,” said the collector.

“What do you want with that mangy thing?” said the owner.

“I have a soft spot in my heart for homeless animals.”

“A soft spot in your head is more like it.”

The collector saw that the owner needed some cajoling. “Oh, come on,” he said, taking out his wallet. “Tell you what — I’ll give you ten dollars.”

“It’s a deal,” said the owner, and pocketed the money. 

“I’m…

Facebook in Real life | Fun Post

I was going though my mobile gallery found an image, I don’t know who actually wrote it, but wanted to share it with you guys because it is hilarious AF. 😛

FACEBOOK

I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.

Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, How I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.

I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.

I also listen to their conversations, give them the “thumbs up” and tell them I like them.

And it works just like Facebook! I already have four…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Author Update – Sue Coletta, Robbie and Michael Cheadle and Deanie Humphrys- Dunne

You’re the best, Sally, thank you.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the first of the Cafe Updates this week and the first author with a recent review is Sue Coletta for her thriller novella – Hacked.

About the book

Shawnee Daniels wrongly assumes she’s being punished for innocently hacking the Police Chief’s photos. Okay, maybe not-so-innocently, but someone had to expose him for the dog that he is. When she arrives at the mandatory computer seminar, the FBI enlists her help in stopping a serial killer who’s remotely hacking vehicles while the owners are behind the wheel.

Why he’s targeted these people remains a mystery. None of the victims frequent the same places, some don’t even live in the same state. The only commonality is they all drive Fords.

When Detective Levaughn Samuels is taken hostage—his life teetering on the edge of a high-speed chase—there’s nothing Shawnee won’t do to save him, no line she won’t cross. And when…

✨ Shining the Light on Author, Sally Cronin! ✨ #IARTG @sgc58

Natalie Ducey

Yesterday I was overjoyed and humbled to have my work and my passion featured on Sally Cronin’s website under her daily post “Smorgasbord Book Promotion – Air Your Reviews.”

Sally graciously shared my book of poetry The Heart’s Lullaby along with a few lovely reviews and links to my social media profiles. I was also delighted to see my work featured alongside fellow authors, Christoph Fischer and Shehanne Moore.

Sally is an accomplished author and one of the most generous and kind souls I’ve had the privilege to connect with. I encourage all readers and authors to visit her website, as you’ll quickly see just how amazing and incredibly supportive she is.

As a writer, Sally knows how important it is to have help in marketing books. In her own words, “As important as my own promotion is, I believe it is important to support others.” She offers a number of…

Smorgasbord Media Training For Authors – Advertising – Gather around the right Waterholes.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I am continuing the series on media training and marketing for authors which is adapted from my media training course for small businesses and charities. Authors are small businesses with a product that needs marketing to obtain sales. Once you start thinking of yourself as a business it tends to focus your mind differently.

Gathering at the right waterholes.

Have you ever been to one of those parties where it appears that everyone is speaking a foreign language or where everyone is talking about something that is completely unknown to you? I have. When my husband was offered his job in Spain, he went ahead for the first three or so years, and I would go over every six weeks for five days. His company directors generously took us out to the Madrid hotspots in the first few visits, and in those days I didn’t understand a word of Spanish…
