Some great posts from the wonderfully talented folks at #StoryEmpire this week. If you haven’t already stopped by, here’s what’s been going on:

MONDAY:  Is Your Writing a Business or a Hobby? by Mae Clair. You definitely need to check this one out, especially if keeping track of expenses and how you should be handling your taxes, etc, is a foreign concept you haven’t quite grasped yet. VERY helpful post! You can read Mae’s post HERE.

WEDNESDAY: Show, Don’t Tell by Gwen Plano. This beautifully done post from Gwen struck a real chord with me, as she reminds us that memories are tricky issues and photographs can prove yours might not be as accurate as your recollections would have you think. Good advice here, and some touching photos, too. You can read Gwen’s post HERE.
