Hi. I’m Dani (aka Danielle) Gibbings McGaw and this is my little space on the interwebs. You’ll find posts about my personal life, my opinions, ideas, writing, writing for money, and more here on my blog.
This is my personal blog so you never know what you’re going to find here. It could be pictures I’ve taken or pieces of fiction I’m working on. It might be something informative or it could be something completely random!
Sit down and have a cup of coffee and a read with me!
Normally, I do a Things On My Mind post with a bunch of smaller thoughts - but I'm thinking this is a good category to put all my random posts in. You know, when I just have something to say but it's not really a writer type of thing. Anyway, I want to talk about...read more
You know, when you're a writer, your stories are constantly on your mind. You think about them when you're doing dishes, You think about what they should be doing when you're at the store (you think about what they would be buying!). You think about them when you...read more
Any other writers use a bullet journal to stay organized and track things? I've been using one this year. I've yet to find my planner peace but I'm working on it. One of the most important trackers I use is a Word Tracker. When I am in a serious writing session (or...read more

So, you've heard me talk about writing ebooks and making money with them right? I've gone from as little to a handful of dollars a month to $800 dollars a month in writing fiction. There's a lot of room for screwing up. But that's not to say that it's not a good way...read more
#1 A Theme? Once again, I am thinking that I need to make this site more focused. It's all over the place right now. I want to keep a category for personal blog posts but I think that overall it needs to have some kind of a theme. And it doesn't have one at all at...read more
How annoying. Did you notice my site was down for a few days? I forgot to renew the domain (I actually thought about completely letting it go but I decided I really like having my own little place online) and then renewed it and it didn't come back up but I got it...read more
How long has it been since I've posted here? I don't know. A long time. I guess that is because I was really struggling with decisions. What to do with my life. What to do about the job that I actually liked but was causing me pain. What to do about making money. I...read more
I have the attention span of a grape nut right now so writing a full, comprehensive post just isn't possible. But I fee the need to write and update-ish type of post so... #1 Like I said - I can't concentrate very well today. I wonder if that is because I am getting...read more
