Friday Writer’s Roundup: Great Advice for Freelancers

rp_depositphotos_8545153_xs.jpgI found lots of great resources this week that I wanted to share with all my writing friends– so I put them together in this blog post. Hope everyone has had a great, and productive, week! Life got in the way for me this week– luckily I have the weekend to get caught up :)

I also have a board on Scoop.it where I save the best information and articles I find around the internet, and I curate stuff to that board regularly. I try to share these things on social media, but sometimes the ADHD kicks in and I’m off to something else. Lots of good stuff on my Scoop.it board–you really should check it out, too: http://www.scoop.it/t/writing-by-denise-gabbard Read the rest of this entry »


Cool Spaces for Writers: Ideas for Decorating your Home Office

Thanks Steff for this post about putting together a cool work space at home.

If, like myself, you spent your childhood painting pictures on rocks for your parents for Christmas gifts, home décor can be a little lost on us. Everyone knows that a good, ol’ fashioned rock paperweight is the height of home office style, right? Maybe not, but that’s not to say you can’t get creative when decorating your home office – making it a space you really look forward to spending time knuckling down in. Here are a few helpful suggestions: Read the rest of this entry »


I Love Writing about Prom Dresses!

A few weeks back, I did a post for a site that sells formal dresses for weddings and other special occasions and it was so much fun, I happily said yes when someone asked me to write about prom dresses! The great thing about having a blog is that you can write about anything you want.

I love this site and their beautiful prom dresses– there are so many unique styles that I have never seen before, even on celebrities on the red carpet. If I were going to prom this year (Wow! It seems like so many years ago, but I cannot wait for my little peeps to go so I can help doll them up) I would definitely check out JenJenHouse  to find an awesome dress that will make her feel like a princess on her big day.

The site has gorgeous prom dresses in all different lengths and a wide range of styles, but sleek and fitted little black dresses to those with sequins, beading and tulle. So many different choices– and much different than shopping at the local mall where the pickings are really slim, and you have to settle for whatever they think will be popular. The problem with that is that everyone shows up wearing almost the same dress. Instead, check out JenJenHouse, where no matter what her vision is, she will find the perfect dress and the perfect color at  http://www.jenjenhouse.com/Prom-Dresses-c18/.  In fact, there are 1,330 prom dress styles on the website, and each and every one of them can be ordered in many different colors. Even better, for a nominal fee, the dress can be expertly altered to her exact measurements so that it fits like a dream and she feels absolutely comfortable and beautiful wearing it.

Additionally, JenJenHouse sells all of the accessories she will need to complete her outfit and look absolutely stunning. Shoes, handbags, wraps from chiffon shawls to faux fur capelets, and absolutely stunning jewelry to complement her dress.  The prices are so great, and the styles so pretty, that I am ordering some for myself.
