This isn’t really a post. No, you aren’t imagining being here… Chris Graham hosted me at the Story Reading Ape’s tree-house for this post in July, 2017. I had also published it on LinkedIn in 2015 — but I forgot to put it in my own “Motivational” category here. So that’s all I’m really doing … More Thriving Thursdays: Danger!

Hello everyone, I’m Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene, taking a moment to lift you up, to help you thrive. What better place for me to do that than from the marvelous tree-house of the Story Reading Ape? Thriving Thursdays: We Rise Sometimes I feel de-motivated, denied, discounted, discombobulated, or any other de or dis that nobody enjoys. However, there is one … More Thriving Thursdays: We Rise

In the past, part of my “real” job was writing a weekly motivational message. I was basically “ghost writing” as/for the Senior Executive Service level director where I work, but he never made any secret of the fact that I wrote his messages. (That was a couple of “Directors” ago.) People would ask me (especially … More Holiday Weekend and DoW Snippet
Why am I here when I have so much work that really has to be finished today? I saw something that I couldn’t resist — and this doesn’t take nearly as much time as making an episode of our “Three Ingredients” serial. Sometimes things change, beyond our control, when they’d be much better left as they were. … More Create Changes
Blogs that Bring Me Sunshine Here, it is officially spring… though I’m not sure you could say that spring has truly sprung — especially after seeing the weather forecast. While I’m inside, I know that I really should be writing the next episode of The Three Ingredients. But I think it is still simmering in my … More Sunshine and Spring
What are you supposed to do if you get the same award more than once? Hummm… I’d say the answer to that is… Bend the rules! Here’s a big “Internet hug” to Joe at “Stepping Out with an Agoraphobic” for mentioning Teagan’s Books on his blog with this award. Pay Joe a visit at his … More The Liebster Award Returns
I try to limit this blog to writing related posts. Maybe I’m celebrating reaching the National Novel Writing Month goal of a draft novel of 50,000 words (yay!). Or maybe I really am just a crazy cat lady… However I thought this was one of the best cat videos I’ve ever seen. The narrator sounds … More Guide to Caring for Humans
First, to all of you in the USA… Happy Thanksgiving! Now, back to NaNoWriMo. It’s all about improving my skills as a writer. That’s my relationship with National Novel Writing Month. I’m always trying to find a way to get better as a writer. Every time I sit down and open a story/file, I think … More NaNoWriMo Got to Get Better
There are just a handful of days left for National Novel Writing Month 2013. Is your muse roaming free and supplying you with details? Or are you trapped in the prison of your word count? Are your ideas orderly? Or did your train of thought chug away to parts unknown? A rhythm helps — a steady, … More NaNoWriMo — Prison of Your Word Count
You can’t be “on fire” all the time. You’d burn out. Fast. Periods of being on fire, no matter what your passion, need to be followed by times of rain. Not quenching rain — you don’t want to put out the fire of that ambition. What I’m talking about is nourishing, steady rain. A rhythm … More NaNoWriMo — Fire then Rain
In the USA, today is Veterans Day — a day set aside to honor and remember all people who have been in the armed service. A respectful “Thank You.” It’s also National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) day #11. Time to remember why we’re taking part in this insanity! I’ve had theme songs to keep me going. … More NaNoWriMo: the Paperback
NaNoWriMo Day 4 The fourth day dawns… I really wanted to hit the ground running this year. Unfortunately I am as slow at novel writing as ever. I remembered this post from last year – Billy Idol’s song became my personal theme. Whether or not you are a writer I hope it will encourage you … More NaNoWri-Mo Mo Mo Mo!
Note from Teagan When I got up this morning, the first thing I noticed in my inbox was a blog post from Tim Flanagan. He writes wonderfully inventive and entertaining books aimed at teens (and adults like me, who would much rather read that kind of thing than grown up books). He’s promoting Teen Reading … More Teen Reading Week Starts Today
Need a mid-week boost? I’m sharing a motivational message that I wrote last year. *** Many business and leadership books, seminars, and training sessions have been built around L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Life is full of “lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!” just like Oz. But we have to keep moving down … More Oz and Accountability
The lack of sunshine has a big impact on me — and not a good one. On this rainy, gloomy morning I had to give myself a dose of positivity. When I think of pep-talks, I usually think of the weekly motivational messages that were part of the work I did for a former boss. … More Don’t Lose Heart
