I haven’t been reading.

I haven’t had it in me lately, which is bugging me, but nothing changes. So, clearly, it’s not bugging me enough. I have plenty of options [i.e. stacks of books], but I’m not motivated to immerse myself in a new world. I think it’s because I’ve been immersing myself in my own new world. This writing project is wonderful. Wonderful and slightly aggravating. But … Read More I haven’t been reading.

Witchiness

I last wrote about my idea for a witch story. Well, I’m excited to report that I’ve stuck with it since then! I spent a considerable amount of time developing characters and an actual storyline/outline! I wish I could work on it more regularly, like every day, but due to my job, I’m left with weekends. And that’s been working well. I have so … Read More Witchiness

Summer, Sunshine, and Perpetual Self-Discovery

Well, I graduated. What a load off my back (and mind) that is. My college career came to an end on May 10, 2019, assuming I don’t go for a graduate degree. The very idea turns my stomach, but I did find out that Masters degrees in creative writing are real, so who knows what the future holds. My degree title is as follows: … Read More Summer, Sunshine, and Perpetual Self-Discovery

The “winter blues” got the best of me this year.

More so than ever before. I’d never felt it this strongly. I spent about a month having ZERO motivation to do anything, and what sucks the most about the timing of it was that it started around the same time as the new semester. So, I did a few initial assignments and then got very behind. I’ve mostly caught up in one class, but … Read More The “winter blues” got the best of me this year.

I have always loved New Year’s.

Both Eve and Day. I’ve loved it when I’ve spent it with family, when I’ve spent it with friends, when I’ve spent it alone, when my dog was my midnight kiss, and as I’ve spent it with my Love for a few years now. That moment when we move from the end of one period of time to the beginning of another… it’s a … Read More I have always loved New Year’s.

I saw my loves last Friday.

My loves being Hanson. It’s kind of surreal thinking back over the last two decades that I’ve been a fan. It feels more like we’re friends, even though we truly aren’t. But there is a relationship there. They’ll even tell you. The fans who have been with them since the beginning are everything to them. How often they thank us and how often they … Read More I saw my loves last Friday.

The Story of the Roman Family

I’ve always wanted to tell this story. I’ve only told a few people, and even they don’t know more than that the family exists and minimally about why. I am reluctant to share this because I feel like it makes me sound crazy. If you’re a writer too, I am going to trust that you understand where I’m coming from with this post. If … Read More The Story of the Roman Family

I’m kind of a mess.

Not a “hot mess” though because, quite frankly, I’m not too fond of that saying. Just a mess. A mess of ideas and hopes and desires. Some of which I actually follow through on. Others are forgotten. And many more are totally unrealistic, something I struggle to admit to myself. They can’t be worked into my life, so they fall by the wayside. But … Read More I’m kind of a mess.
