"Grabbing the Muse by the Throat"

Wendy Barrett's inspiring book "Grabbing the Muse by the Throat" arrived this week.   It was a delight to hear that I had won a copy.

The year is 2011 and Wendy has embarked on a creative journey.    It is a wonderful tale of overcoming procrastination, and generally focusing on accomplishing the things that matter in our lives.

Wendy generously shares her own personal tips on how to set realistic goals that will lead to success.  For all who struggle to find time to create this is a great read.

 I am always delighted to visit Wendy at her lovely blog.   She lives in Australia and many times she features her beautiful part of the world in her posts.  Hope any who have not visited her will take the time to stop over and say hello.  

The gorgeous card beside her book is a copy of one of Wendy's original paintings.  

Thank you dear friend for your wonderful gift .  I am so enjoying it.  

May all of you have a blessed week.

Got to go now.  Have some more reading to do.  

Hugs!  Debbie
