There was a blizzard yesterday. No, I'm not being dramatic. The roads are covered in snow, the schools are closed, and it's a slushy pile of angry people outside...save the children building a snowman across the street. It's gorgeous though! Absolutely lovely. But not every single day of winter is filled with brilliant, white, fresh snow. A… Continue reading Find Inspiration in Winter
I'll be honest, as I type up this blog, I really don't want to. My husband's home, I'm not super inspired, and it's a perfect day for cocoa and cuddling. Not sitting, thinking, writing, and working. But that's what I'm doing. Don't pity me though because tomorrow me will thank me. I don't want to write… Continue reading Write When You Don’t Want To
Since Halloween is approaching, I thought it'd be nifty to spend the next week discussing our fears, horror, darkness, and all that fun stuff. We'll start with this. Why are you afraid of the dark? Why are we afraid of the dark? Later on during this journey we'll discuss what we are afraid of but for right now,… Continue reading Darkness and Your Fears
It's no secret that I'm head over heels in love with nature. And writing. Okay and well a lot of things. I'm a passionate person. But since the time I was a child, I held a deep fascination with nature. I loved it. I loved squatting down to look at a glittery trail a snail… Continue reading Finding Yourself in Nature: A Writer’s Tale
If I had a nickel for every time I heard, "You write so dark!" followed by uncomfortable lectures I would really be rich.
This week's blog will look at my writing but not the actual words. We'll be looking at the reasons why I write. If I'm being honest, there are too many for me to actually cover. However, if I'm really honest about what keeps me coming back to a blank page (or even one with a few squiggles… Continue reading Why Do I Write?
That's right, I said it. Accept failure? Easy. Accept your failures? All right, not so easy. And we know why. Because it means we were not good enough, we messed up, or we were just plain unlucky. There are so many negative thoughts in our head, not just those three. They flutter around our failures and… Continue reading Accept Failure
We all know how important the word "no" is in our vocabulary. It's easy to understand that we have to say no to certain obligations, people, and need to learn how to say it with confidence. Easy to understand, at least. But what about the word "yes"? Yes is a liberating word, or at least, it… Continue reading The Power of Yes
This is the first of I'm sure a million posts titled "What Am I?" because it's something I'm constantly thinking about and it's something that's constantly changing. So it's fun. And...there are so many ways I can actually express myself this way. But how I choose to phrase my "I Am" poems is a little bit… Continue reading What Am I?
They're out there, the immortals. They go to work, buy groceries, teach children. They cry, they scream, they fight, they mess up. But still, they are immortal. At least, that's my take on it. No, this isn't about ghosts. No, it isn't some weird, otherworldly phenomenon. This is going to be a shorter, guided reflection… Continue reading The Immortals
