Some Thoughts on Journaling

Over my recent hiatus, I kept up with a daily journal. Not only that, I’ve added a larger journal that I have adjusted from clarkdanger.com (I found his stuff on YouTube) It’s been something that I continue to enjoy and keeps me writing something nearly every day. My daily journal is usually a recap of…

So, things have been busy.

I know it must feel like a while, and it has been, but I haven’t forgotten. Truth is, things have been really good and the time to get back has been hard lately. So, what’s the deal? Well, let’s see… The big news is that I’ve moved into a new house. It’s been a long…

I’ll Have to Pencil You In

I’m not sure exactly what happened, but things shifted several weeks ago. I think it was the culmination of several factors. My workload at my job has increased and I’ve been given more responsibility. Good for me though. My effort is being recognized and I’m looking to move up at work. Things are good there….

Coffee Talk: February 2018

Well guys, it’s been a busy these past few weeks. I think we owe it to ourselves to sit down, relax, and have a good cup of coffee. I’m a fan of a regular coffee talk and I’ve had some good ones HERE and HERE. So, here’s a few things on my mind today: 1)…

After All This Time, I Don’t Have Much to Show

Okay, I have to be honest, it’s halfway through February and I’ve written a grand total of three days. That’s it. Three whole days. Even when I sat down to write, I’m not cranking out my usual word count. It’s been a little discouraging. Yes, there are some things that are going on in other…

Book Review: Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsin

Optimists Die First normally wouldn’t be the type of book I’d pick up. I’m usually drawn to something with more action or something that has fantastical aspects to the world and story. This year I’m branching out into some new territory and I lucked out with this one. Optimists Die First is written by Susin…

January in Review. So, How Did I Do?

January has come and gone faster than ever and it’s time to look back and see how I did with the goals I set for myself. I had five main goals to accomplish. Let’s see how I did: Goal 1 – Write 20,000 words towards WIP Actual – 14,912 Words I didn’t hit my goal…

Life Forced a Writing Break, but that’s Okay.

This past weekend has been long, emotionally heavy, and rough on the family. Any plans I had for writing towards my WIP goal have been put on the back burner for the past week and a half so I can best attend family stuff. I’m not going to break down the weekend; just suffice it…

Struggling with Life and Writing

Planning for 2018 has been pretty good so far. I’m on track for most of my goals and I’m encouraged to keep going with new ideas. I’ve scoured Pinterest and other “neat idea” places to help build blog post ideas, writing prompts, and other things to give great content. I’ve been studying up on SEO…

Book Review: Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau

I’d like to say that I did research into what book I wanted to start 2018 reading and delved into books that were relevant or popular, but Dividing Eden was an impulse read. My local library had the book displayed as one of the books it was highlighting and the premise sounded interesting. Dividing Eden…

Coffee Talk – Jan 2018

I’ve been watching a lot of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee lately. I caught a few episodes of the show several months ago, but now that the show is posted on Netflix, I’ve been binge watching a lot of it. The show is a simple talk/interview show where comedian Jerry Seinfeld picks up someone in…
