    2022-03-13 So Much Next Level Going On

    It’s been another hot minute, you know I know. But I’ve been attending to other duties as assigned and this week it was all about hanging out with the founder and managing editor of Red Hen Press and the LA Review. It was/is a big deal and personally a fantastic experience.  What an opportunity to […]

  • 2022-02-03 I Need to Write This

    When I say I need to write this, what I mean is that I need to try and work through my thoughts and feelings. I need to come to terms with what’s happened, document my perspective for posterity, and try to find some internal resolution and peace. That’s what this is.  Yesterday I had a […]

    2022-01-28 Giving Birth is Hard Work, Especially When You’re Distracted

    I’m pushing hard to get that next “baby” of an issue for my lit mag out into the wide world. This one has a big head. It’s what’s on my mind and I keep getting distracted by the rest of life.  My husband is off work today which started at 6:30 am with a work […]

    2021-11-24 Which Way is Up + 10 Reasons Why Tuesday was Tops Compared to Monday

    I swear the Universe is conspiring to mix me around something fierce in a way that leaves me not knowing which direction is up. Two days ago I was the hot mess I often complain about being here in this semi-anonymous space. Yesterday was like the exact opposite. I felt great and for no damn […]

    2021-11-23 Pulling that Pin Out and Tossing it in the Trash 📌

    Yesterday I suffered from a mini-existential crisis and wanted to write through it. I wanted to write long enough for my brain to start unlocking the doors to potential answers. Hey.. it’s worked before so why not?  However life itself got in the way and I truly did not have enough time to get to […]

    2021-11-17 Hello Austin.. Ohhh, How I’ve Missed You

    If I would have posted what I wrote yesterday, the title might have been “Miss SugarCookie is On the Move Again” or “Austin Adventure Day 0” or maybe “Seven Reminders Why I Hate Air Travel” but I only wrote a handful of sentence that had nothing to do with traveling or my trip and then […]

    2021-11-06 It has been a while… but why?

    It has been a while since I held to my daily writing routine and I could say it was because I haven’t needed it but the truth is that I’m just using my time in other ways.  What’s new? Plenty. What is blog worthy? Not sure.  I’ve got a new elliptical machine and it’s smooth […]

    2021-09-14 The One About (Not) Dealing With Inequitable Partnerships

    I’m really very tired of writing about the same things over and over and really wish I could get out of the funk that is, for all intents and purposes, self-inflicted.  I’m also not sure what direction this particular piece of writing will go given the Rolodex of thoughts infesting my tired mind.  In exactly […]
