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

I’m happy to report that I’ve been pretty busy these last few weeks.

I had a few leads on jobs, but none have worked out. One in particular was disappointing; it took me a couple days to get over it. And even now when I think about it, I feel a twinge of sadness. But, as people in my life have said, there will be other jobs! I’m trying to stay positive. It obviously wasn’t meant to … Read More I’m happy to report that I’ve been pretty busy these last few weeks.

Alright, it’s time to get serious.

It’s time to figure out what I’m doing with this writing degree that I’ll be spending the next three decades paying for. What is a legitimate obstacle for me though is I work full-time. Some weeks, more than full-time. So, by the time I get home, I’m too tired to think. I don’ t know how to get around this. The only time that … Read More Alright, it’s time to get serious.

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.

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 couldn’t decide on what to write next.

I had an idea, but it wasn’t coming out right. It was sounding more like a persuasive piece on why one should do what I was talking about, not just my meandering thoughts on what I was talking about. And then, every idea I had after that was missing something. My voice wasn’t there. Everything felt forced, like I was painstakingly tryyyyying to maaaaake a blog post … Read More I couldn’t decide on what to write next.
