I don't want to jinx it, but these have been some hella productive days, and I think I know what I owe it to: reading. I'm more inspired than ever to finish Vacancy, and it's got to be because I'm into someone else's book right now. The genre is totally different than what I'm writing,… Continue reading Productive Days
We all want to improve at something. For me, well, it's a lot of things, but writing is high on the list. While I believe talent exists and comes naturally, and you're born with it or not, I also believe that's only a very small percentage of what makes up any skill. Everything else is… Continue reading What Are You Doing To Be Better?

I've thought quite hard about it, and the best way I can describe how I felt yesterday is akin to a deflated balloon. It's not a unique simile, but it's the most accurate. It was like I'd lost all my air, and just sort of bumped along on the ground, listless and droopy. I realized… Continue reading Lead and Light
I'm not even sure myself, so I can't answer that, but I'm having trouble getting back to wherever I used to be. I feel guilty leaving this space empty, and I miss it. I'm sure my need to produce will ultimately win over, it's just how long will the struggle last, ya know?
I mused on success recently, and while doing so I had a thought. Success is often personified as a woman, fickle and choosy, mysterious and aloof, other feminine words and synonyms, but I don't know about all that. Women are only "mysterious" because when we don't want the thing that men think we should want,… Continue reading Success Is A Fuckboi
I talked about the freedom of being phone-less recently, and since I've replaced my sad cracked-screen with a much more expensive but narrowly different model, I've been trying to limit my use of it. I could do better (damn you, Hogwarts Mystery!), and admittedly it hurts to drop a few hundred dollars on something just… Continue reading The Need To Be Liked
I was really productive yesterday and for the last two days I have been in what I would almost call a manic state: happy, excited, productive. And I'm scared to admit it, but I'm fairly certain this may be due to the very recent, and very tragic death of my cellular telephone. To be clear… Continue reading This Is My 99th Post
Ew. I am SO SORRY about that title. That's awful. But it's true, there is one kinda odd thing I started doing maybe a week and a half ago that got me motivated to write more, and I'm going to share that with you now. But seriously, sorry. So I have been on a slow… Continue reading This OnE WeIrD TrIcK Got My Motivation Back
One of the many things that my FitBit does that I love (#notsponsored by the way, as if I needed to clarify) is offers "Sleep Insights." When you look at your sleeping pattern on the app, there's a little box that usually says something generic about getting better sleep or offers an average data point… Continue reading Millennial Motivation
