I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer. I love that the sun is out so much longer. I get so much more done in the evening when it’s light outside.

I’ve been away for a while doing a lot of book writing. I’ve been writing non-fiction how-to books. And I recently started writing romance novels for and about women over 45. I’m in the middle of my first full length romance novel.

At first I was afraid to try fiction. I hadn’t written any fiction since grade school and that was a long time ago. Then I thought,

“What’s the worse that could happen?”

Well, my worse case scenario was writing something that would be laughed at.

So I went and got some help on how to plot a story and joined a writers’ support group. I wrote a short story and had some people read it.

Surprise of surprises.
Not only did I enjoy writing it but my test readers like it!

Now I didn’t write it great the first, second or even third time. But I kept at it and with help and support, I ended up with a story that I was proud of. (If you’d like to see what it’s about, it’s on Amazon under my pen name, Mia Jasper.)

My experience with writing was a lot about self-confidence and giving myself permission to try something I knew I’d be less that perfect at the first time.

That took my thoughts back here to how so many women are afraid to try things related to technology. A lack of self-confidence and a fear of being less than perfect.

So I wrote a 17-page report titled “Technology Confidence.”

Let me give you a free copy of it. If you put your name and email in the box to the right, I’ll get a copy into your inbox today.
