About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  1. I hope you crochet yourself back to peace with yourself. You are not alone.

  2. What a great list. I’m really bad at #8. I just can not resist Oreo’s or Jelly Babies 🙂

  3. Definitely need to keep these things in mind for myself today.

  4. You leave me with nothing to do.

  5. Charge your batteries and come back to writing when you feel ready…we’ll be waiting.

  6. I won gold medals for 9 & 11. 🙂

  7. My poor old eyes! I did a double-take because I read the first one as double dating yourself. It’s going to be one of those days!

  8. I like this, it’s good advice. However, I absolutely refuse to give up laziness.

  9. Procrastination and criticizing are two of my favorite past times!

  10. Great advice for me too. 🙂
