Writer Wednesday: Inspiration

Inspiration can, quite literally, come from anywhere: any person, any social situation, any work of art, any quote, any building, any dream (or nightmare), any emotion, any thing. Concrete or abstract. Tangible or imaginary. Serious or silly. Doesn’t matter; just as diverse as humans themselves is that which inspires. I once wrote a tabloid-esque short... Continue Reading →

Monday Musings: Bits & Pieces

I’m a big fan of planning, but last week proved that I’m not perfect with it. Wednesday's and Friday’s blogs, respectively, never saw the light of day. In fact, they didn’t even get written! On both days one thing led to another and it was evening before I had time to sit down and write.... Continue Reading →

Monday Musings: Today vs. Tomorrow

If isn’t already obvious, I’m pretty big on setting goals. I don’t always accomplish what I set out to do, but I try. And compared to how I used to live (by the seat of my pants and never accomplishing anything), it’s been all the difference.  Yesterday I heard a quote that has stuck with... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Morning Pages

A number of years ago I came across a book about writing by Julia Cameron. The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life has been one of those resources/sources of inspiration that I’ve turned to time and time again. With writing exercises throughout the book, it’s been helpful in getting my... Continue Reading →

Monday Musings: New Year, New Goals

Well, kind of new goals. Maybe the title should read “New Year, Revised Goals.” 🙂 Because most of what I’m attempting to achieve in 2019 is similar to that which I wanted to achieve in 2018. The difference this year is that I made them a little more specific, and I’m in the process of... Continue Reading →

Fiction Friday: Songs of the Shenandoah

*On Fridays I will share what I’ve been reading, whether fiction or non-fiction. The books here can range from fiction of any genre, to personal development, to how-to, and anything and everything in between.

Writer Wednesday: Happy New Year!

Any writing resolutions set for 2019? I’m not much of a resolution setter myself; I prefer measurable goals. Granted, you can turn your resolutions into goals, so they are kind of similar/the same thing, but not always. 🙂 Like, I can resolve to never eat another cupcake again, but if I don’t actually put a...

Final Post of the Year

December dawns tomorrow. During the month Christmas cards will be mailed, hopefully snow will fall, and I will begin the awesome new Christmas puzzle I bought. It's a time for family togetherness, reflection, and celebration. So, as I've mentioned in the two previous posts, I am taking a break from the internet for the entire... Continue Reading →
