International Women’s Day

 

Recently, last year to be exact, I heard about this holiday, which is surprising because it began in 1909. Incredibly, it is celebrated all over the world!

This past Saturday, I was blessed to see a vision that I’ve had for years come to fruition. The vision was to see  women of diverse nationalities at a tea party, enjoying one another’s company. I am so thankful to be a part of a multicultural church, who believed in that vision too.

Our speaker on Saturday, Karen Harmon, www.karenharmon360.com, shared with us some poignant aspect of being a woman, especially a Christian woman. One of the pieces I’d like to highlight is a prayer that women will begin to see each other as sisters and not as threats, that we won’t be so quick to judge another woman who is not like us, and that we will celebrate one another in all of differences and uniqueness.

I’m thankful for all the diverse women God has allowed me to meet at my church, in the community, and on the blogosphere.

Happy International Women’s day to all the beautiful women, who are unafraid to chase their dreams, no matter how big they are, and in spite of the many times she was told, it can’t be done!

-Your moment is now,

Ebby ♥

REBLOG: The Books Behind the Oscars

It’s MARCH: New Name, New Site

 

I didn’t accomplish all I set out to do in February, but that’s okay. This month, I won’t put as much pressure on myself… NOT!

1st thing, I’ve changed my name.

I’m tired of pen names and I just need simple right now and simple means changing my surname from Lane to LeBlanc. I know, I know, such a huge deviation. : P (FYI: the site will remain, www.ebbyslane.com)

2nd thing, if you haven’t noticed, I’m making some major changes to Ebby’s Lane.

I’m an author, and that was my original reason for starting a blog. So, my main focus will be providing writing tips, networking and supporting fellow authors. I’ve enjoyed writing inspirational and random post and am so thankful for all those who have read and enjoyed them. Don’t worry, I’ll still be writing these types of post every now and then and hopefully, continue guest blogging on other sites. 

Since I’m nearing the end of editing my third fiction novel and preparing to pitch it to agent/publisher in April; also, have a short guide I’m releasing soon titled, “Finish that Manuscript you started,” The main focus these next few months will be on books and writing guide/tips, with randoms here and there.

In addition, I’m hoping to add a blogger spotlight/recognition post as well. We shall see how much I can accomplish along with holding a fulltime job, being a wife and mommy to a rambunctious little one. By the way, how does someone so small have such endless energy?!

I digress, March is Women’s Month, expect post on women authors of diverse culture.

A special thanks to all of you who take the time to stop by, read and comment on my post. It truly means so much!

I hope you will stick with me as I journey to brand myself as a fiction author. If you are an author or aspiring author, let us all know in the comments below and we can walk this exciting journey together.

Living in the Moment,

Ebby ♥ 

P.S. Please excuse the messiness, the site is still in transition.
