Holiday Traditions

Holiday Traditions

Hello, OWFI!

Can you believe the holidays are already upon us? Traditions are important to me, and the holidays are a time to reflect on current traditions and add new ones. It’s also a good time to look forward to the new year just around the bend. Soon, I’ll begin setting writing goals for 2019. I’m a big believer in goal setting. I’ll set a large, overarching goal for the year and then break it down into smaller, more realistic goals to meet each month.

Happy Almost-Fall, OWFI!

Fall is just around the corner, and with it will come cooler temperatures, fall festivals, gorgeous foliage, fun costumes on Halloween, and family gatherings at Thanksgiving. For these reasons and more, fall has always been my favorite season.

Ushering in a New Year for OWFI

Hello, OWFI!

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Staci Mauney, your new president. I met many of you in person at the last conference, and I’ve had a chance to get to know others through Facebook. I’m an indie author and freelance writer and editor. As an author, I’ve published three devotionals in the Echoes of Joy series. I write a weekly blog for my website, stacimauney.com, which often features my Yorkie, Lilly, and her zany antics. She’s the star of my social media pages. I’ve had short stories published in Chicken Soup for the Shopper’s Soul; Owl Hootings, Vol. II; Oklahoma: The Fountain of the Heartland; and The Report.
