Write When You Don’t Want To

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

What Are You Afraid Of?

Here's a fun question: What are you afraid of? What terrifies you? What haunts your dreams? What do you refuse to watch on TV, in film, read in a book? What terrifies you? Don't worry, this isn't a pop quiz so you don't have to answer. Not me at least. Fears are private things, they're big weaknesses, aren't… Continue reading What Are You Afraid Of?

Why Do I Write?

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?

The Power of Yes

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

What Am I?

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?

The Immortals

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

Do It Right Now

Nope. Don't wait until you finish lunch. Don't wait until the minute hand gets to the top of the clock or to the next marking on the clock. Don't wait until tomorrow. Don't wait until after this, that, or the other thing. Do it right now. Get moving right now. It shouldn't come as a shock… Continue reading Do It Right Now

Coffee, Coffee, And More Coffee

Yep, that picture is definitely of a happy cup of coffee. To me, nothing is better than a cup of coffee. Doesn't even matter if it is smiling back or not because the first sips of coffee are always heaven. But then again, there's something to be said for the warm feeling of a cup… Continue reading Coffee, Coffee, And More Coffee
