No one can go back and make a brand new start, but anyone can start from here and make a brand new end.    (Carl Bard)

That’s one of my favorite quotes – a reminder that at any point in life, at any age and any stage, we can start again, try something new, and make the ending we’ve always dreamed of.

It’s something I did starting at the half-century mark. I’ve always loved to write, and dreamed of being published, but I never acted on it. Until 50 was looming. I felt God calling me to get serious about writing, make it more than a semi-secret hobby. So, after lots of angst, I stepped out in faith. Now I have 2 books published and a 3rd to be released in spring 2016.

So if I can make a brand new start, you can too!

Through this blog, I’ll jot my thoughts about writing, dreams, friendship, and family. And along the way I hope to point the way to the Creator, to make an oftentimes dark world a little brighter by letting God’s light shine through the musings of this Minnesota writer.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll come back!

    What a great idea for your blog, especially to those living in Minnesota who would like to know about the local writers and find out more about their home state. I like the name you chose for your blog too!


  3. Great stories/interviews on MN writers. Nice job Stacy!


  4. This is such a great way to help people connect to local writers. I wanted to introduce myself last night at the MN NICE meeting but didn’t find a time to do it (you helped me find an open spot to sit when I came in late). I look forward to reading your blog and maybe I’ll see you in the future.

    Have a great day!

    It was a wild meeting last night, that’s for sure! I’m glad you connected with Rachel at your corner of the table. I’d love to chat more so drop me a note soon. Oh, and I loved your blog this morning about talking too much. Great points!
