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….

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…

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…

I Think I Have a Hobby that has Taken Over my Brain

It was inevitable. I knew someday this would happen and I thought I was prepared, but the day has finally come. I will need to start a new journal. I’ve been keeping a daily journal since September 15th and it has become part of my routine. I love being able to go back and see…

Looking Ahead to 2018

After looking back at 2017, the next logical step is to look ahead to 2018. What do I want for myself? What do I want to change? What do I want to accomplish? Well, I’m glad you asked. Here’s a few thoughts on what I will set out to accomplish over the coming year. Keep…

Looking Back at 2017. So What’s the Verdict?

Today I took a moment to take stock of how my year has been. When I look back at 2017 I feel like it’s been one of my roughest years. I have a few points that I’m proud of or that were good things in my life, but It’s also been a low point for…

My Attempt to Write a Sonnet. Should be easy, right?

I’ve been on a bit of a poetry kick lately. I haven’t dropped this idea of a poetry collection that will one day grace the Wattpad app. In proper preparation, I’ve been looking at different poetry styles and structures, trying to decide which one(s) I want to use. The examples I’ve found so far on…

I was so gonna write Monday, but then…

I swear I thought I had posted something on Monday, but low and behold, I didn’t. My bad. Totally on me. Monday was kind of a rough day. Want to hear about it? Thanks. Pull up a seat. Work itself wasn’t too terrible. I got what I needed done for the day and my ongoing…

Enough waiting! Progress at last.

I had previously posted about a new computer coming my way that I would be able to set up and hit the ground running on the rewrite to my book. Well, I don’t have the computer yet, but there is good news. After a week upon discussing said computer and the person’s willingness to pass…

Take a Moment and go Back to the Drawing Board

After doing a little bit of prep work I can say with great confidence I may have jumped the gun a little. It’s nothing horrendous, but I could have saved myself a good bit of trouble and rewrites. Ok, so here’s the deal: I’ve been working on some semblance of my story for a year…

Getting a Leg Up from Somewhere Unexpected

Unbeknownst to anyone else, I have been doing a general search for a new computer. The latest laptop I have is one I got back when I was in college. So, with my availability at work still being smaller than I’d like (that’s still where I do most of my writing. Isn’t that bad?) I…
