A Thousand Years Later

Oh hi. It's been awhile. Feels like a thousand years. By the screen capture just below of my last few blog posts looks like it's been just about 8 months since I've last graced my own blog with words. Life has been hard guys. But I haven't given up. Am I stronger? I guess. Am [...]

Try This Again

Hi there, hello. It's Tuesday. And you know what that means! I write about something I like. This week, I want to talk to you about books. Every good author will tell you if you want to write, you damn well better make time for reading. It's an integral part of honing your own craft. [...]

Back On The Motivation Train?

Oh hi there. The sickness that scooped me up and took over my life for the last couple of weeks has *knocks on wood* finally subsided. Mostly. So, I'm certainly hoping that my motivation will come back, as my energy has begun to return. I've sat at my computer for hours over this long weekend. [...]

Why Wouldn’t We?

Oh hi there, lovely people of the internet. I ask this question with all the honesty I can muster. Why wouldn't we? Why wouldn't we continue with this lovely tradition this week?

Thursday Wall

Oh hi there people of the internet. Hope your Thursday is going well. I've hit a wall today.  Not to be confused with any other wall that may be in the news, on your radar, or in your backyard. The wall I've hit is a writing one. Today is brought to you by the word [...]

Book Covers Are The Hardest Art to Dance To

Write. Write. Write. Right now! Oh hi there. It's Wednesday and that means I'm going to talk about writing today.  In the past, I've mentioned that I belong to a few writing groups on Facebook. Most of these groups are terrible and unsupportive. Every so often, though, I find a gem of a post. Usually, [...]

Wacky Words Part Three? Fear Edition.

Oh hi there. Would you like some more words today? I am so loving this little series that I am trying to implement some of my newly found words into my writing/poetry. It's been quite challenging. But, the English language is challenging. I was sketching a character for my book series (essentially getting to know [...]
