Diane Fanucchi wrote a new post, I Am My Own Dog: Or, Do You Make Time for Self-Care?, on the site Diane Fanucchi's Blog 1 year, 3 months ago
On an average day, I take two short walks in my neighborhood. I do this for exercise, for a physical boost or a mental break or to work off stress. On especially sunny, joyfully beautiful days, I keep going out […]
Thanks so much Melba! I post about every other Tuesday.
Actually I’ve been a creative writer all my life, but wanted to finally turn it into a business as a copywriter, so I started my blog to help make the […]

Sometimes you can be busy all day, but still not know what you actually accomplished, especially if you’re just reacting to external demands.
Whether your too-long to-do list is self-imposed or forced on you by […]

Diane Fanucchi wrote a new post, More Productivity, Less Stress, With the Pomodoro Method, on the site Diane Fanucchi's Blog 1 year, 6 months ago
I said this post would be about ‘tomatoes,’ and if you’re familiar with popular productivity methods, you may have guessed that I was alluding to the Pomodoro timer technique.

It took me awhile to get on board with putting links here.
Here is my response to the questions for day 1. https://dianefanucchi.naiwe.com/its-words-matter-week/
and day […]
I have enjoyed this writing challenge, and really believe that words matter.
I’ve answered the question each day.
Here is my response to today’s question. https://dianefanucchi.naiwe.com/wordsmatterweek-day-5/
Day 5: What word, said or unsaid, has or could change your life? How?
Some of the runners-up were: “options”, “possible”, “can”, “begin”, “don’t”.
When I was a young woman starting my life in the […]
Thanks for reading.
I’m a little confused though. Aren’t I participating by putting my responses on my NAIWE blog? And I’ve been putting “WordsMatterWeek in my titles. What step am I missing?

Day 2: Writers are artists with words as their medium. What author is your favorite word stylist?
As with day 1, I can’t choose only one.
I love Jane Austen, because she used words so effectively that she taught […]
How great that a week about words, one of my great loves, is depicted by a poster in a beautiful shade of purple, one of my other great loves.
I’m going to put off the promised ‘tomato’ post until next […]

Announcement 1. With some reluctance, I have decided to put this blog on hold for awhile. Probably for 2-3 months. The reason is that I am currently focusing on other projects, including an intense class to help […]
