Today’s Wisdom Key

The Official Blog of No. 1 Bestselling Author Tanya R. Taylor ™

An insult to a person’s intelligence is when someone has the nerve to take your kindness for weakness. Yet, unbeknownst to them, some very kind people are also very strong and wise people who can “smell a rat a mile away”. So how do you prevent yourself from falling victim of being used? Believe them when they show you who they really are and keep a safe distance. Learn to say No when something inside urges you to, all feelings set aside. Hold on to your dignity, yet continue to be thoughtful of others for it is a virtue. Many users are out there with faces and demeanors of innocent lambs with the warped mentality that people are “disposable” just as their daily trash is.

I decided to toss my keyboard and gel pen into the ring to give NaNoWriMo a whirl. I did. I slayed it in five days. So, I continued with a few more words; I ended at 105,728. I am a grateful cookie cake. #NaNoWinner2016.

Thank you to my lovely writing cookie cake, Beth Prentice. We were a team. #WORDSLAYER

I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF YOU! THANK YOU, COOKIE CAKES!!!

fullsizerender-27Yesterday my debut novel, Even Tough Women Can Crack Like Eggs Sometimes, was released. I ended up mostly resting due to a sinus thingamajig, which has me doing the same thing today. I only opened my computer to type this up to say THANK YOU TO EVERY ANGEL WHO DOWNLOADED MY BOOK YESTERDAY. It is because of ALL OF YOU my book is A BESTSELLER, A HOT NEW RELEASE and the reason I can add BESTSELLING AUTHOR to my title. You have made a little girl’s prayer, a woman’s reality. I am in tears as I type this, so please forgive any and all typos. There aren’t enough words to express what is in my heart, and thank you doesn’t seem to even touch the surface. I am blessed to have some AMAZING women in my world and two of my angels. Beth Prentice and Tanya R. Taylor kept me posted on my ranking. I finally lifted my stuffed head to see for myself after Beth told me I hit #58. And when Tanya shared a screenshot, I realized my rump better grab a screenshot or two. At first, I thought I was too stuffed to comprehend what was going on. I cannot believe I held the #2 spot in Hot New Releases for two days. I snapped that in case I was too feverish. I am still processing all of this, so please forgive me if I am radio silent – or semi silent for the next several days. I will be resting and working behind the scenes. I completed four books in two months and now I do not know how to have an “off” day. If I am not on my computer writing, I am writing by hand and handling the publishing side of things. I will take off tomorrow to spend it with my trio of blessings and RELAX. I’ll let ya know how that turns out. 😉dmtobthank-you-monkey

I want to thank Tanya R. Taylor for standing beside me through this entire journey as an author.; while excavating, experiencing and reliving the pain, Tanya , encouraged me and reminded me how TOUGH I was. And when the agony was excruciatingly unbearable, my Bahamian sister crawled along with me. I could not have done this without my Rosary and my Taylor family. Thank you, Rosary, with all my heart…now get to bakin’! Giggle.
