I've had a series of unfortunate events occur, which hasn't stopped the writing train, but it has slowed it slightly. I got poison ivy from some yard work over a week ago, and it reached its worst this past weekend and into Monday. I've also been battling a sore throat for a few days which… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections
A subtitle for today's blog could be "Planning for Brainstorm February," but I gotta stay on this month's brand, and dedicate actually works out. I dedicated today's practice, as Adriene asked us to, to "my work." It was meant to be a person or a thing that wasn't ourselves to prove how self love and… Continue reading Dedicate
Today, I have the power to stay on task. I mean, I had the power to stay in those standing splits the whole time and do shiva squats, so I could probably conquer the galaxy if I put my mind and brawn to it today. But we'll save becoming Supreme Leader of the Universe for… Continue reading Power
I really feel like I've been creating a new me, or rather, a slightly improved me, over the last couple weeks. Truly, new year, new me. Annoying but honest. In yoga, I think my biggest breakthrough thus far has been finding my breath. I heard about it for the past three-ish years, but I always… Continue reading Curate
In a word, this year has been weird, and in another word, December specifically has been busy. So it all just WENT and here I am, on the brink of January, both glad and sad to see it go. Moving, in general, was the theme. In fact, "Moving" might be my title for the year.… Continue reading Where Did December And 2018 Go?
For the first time ever, I've won National Novel Writing Month. Yes, it's July, it's really just camp, and yes, technically the only thing I beat out was myself and the only thing I got out of this is a 90+ page document that I'm both exhausted and enthralled by, but wouldn't really appeal to… Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo: 50k Words And Winning
I've heard tell that people who work from home need to cultivate a work-specific space to keep themselves on task. This may not apply to everyone, but in my experience I like to feel "in the zone" in order to do serious writing. When I was in high school, I had a desk in my… Continue reading Writing Nest
I'm going to be straight with you, Dear Reader: 2017 was pretty fucking great for me. I would be remiss to not call it super successful. While the things I did don't apply to everyone, they certainly turned things around for me in a lot of ways. Am I am expert advice giver? No, but… Continue reading How To Not Fuck Up 2018
Look, I'm not one to brag about the things I have. Thing are inconsequential in this life. We should appreciate the natural and what has been given to us by the universe. We should love life, a cool breeze, a warm smile, a good hug. But when you get a present as AWESOME as I… Continue reading Blogmas: Christmas Eve!
