When the Motivation Just Isn’t There SL027

8/1/2018
More
Anyone who tries to tell you that you have to feel motivated to work towards your dreams and goals all the time is probably full of BS. Sometimes motivation is in short-supply. The options are to push forward anyway or to take a break until you’re ready to start again. Both are valid options — […] The post When the Motivation Just Isn’t There SL027 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

When Your Mind Lies to You SL026

7/25/2018
More
In this week’s episode, I talk about imposter syndrome and anxiety but our brains can make us believe things that aren’t true for a lot of other reasons. Mental illness is very real. I don’t offer solutions to every situation, only what’s worked for me in the past. Most importantly, I want to remind you […] The post When Your Mind Lies to You SL026 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

7/18/2018
More
I’m one of those cheerful, optimistic, and determined people that doesn’t talk much about quitting. Mostly because I’ll (usually) do everything in my power to avoid it. But sometimes, the best choice you can make for yourself, your goals, and your sanity is to quit what isn’t working. So let’s talk about that on the […] The post Knowing When to Quit SL025 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

I admit to going on a tangent in this one, but the overall message is pretty clear (hopefully): Slow progress isn’t a sign of failure. No shame if you’re moving at the speed of a sloth, y’all. In this episode: This week’s episode is brought to you by QuickBooks Self Employed. The overnight success probably […] The post Slow Progress Isn’t a Sign of Failure SL024 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

John Brownstone (my husband and Dominant partner) joins me for a discussion about how your partner might feel about and react to your smutlancer life.

Writing About More than Sex to Jumpstart Your Writing Career SL017

5/16/2018
More
If you’re here, I assume you either want to be a smutlancer or consider yourself one already. Creating content about sex is what this site is about, and it’s a personal passion of my own.

Who Are You Writing For? SL016

5/9/2018
More
The question came up, in a recent conversation, about who we write for. Do you write for yourself or your audience? Me? I write for both. Sometimes at the same time, and sometimes exclusively for one or the other. And when you write professionally, you’ve got two other groups to think about — the client […] The post Who Are You Writing For? SL016 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

This week I went on a rant (it’s kind of my thing) about ignoring your critics – even your own inner critic – and doing your thing. We all start somewhere and we all get better with time.
