    2022-08-14 Denver Road Trip Day 4: Meeeeoooow Wolf

    This feels like the good ole days right? Writing blog posts every day regardless of how boring or repetitive they are. Today’s topic is no surprise. Day 4 of my little road trip. Not to be mistaken with my BIG road trip which starts in one short week. I’m not joking. If I did something […]

    2022-06-28 A Day In The Life

    Today’s experiment, after waking up at 4 AM and only four hours of sleep (I was revising poems till midnight), is data mining a “day in the life.” It’s a little research project I dreamed up after having not just one or two run-ins with my errant brain and its memory flaws, but a whole string of seemingly unconnected instances.

    As I near the end of this two-week writing experiment I recognize that much of what I have written (the new stuff anyway) has been blog posts. In the beginning, I had this blog down as an option if I got stuck or didn’t want to work on some other project on my list. But […]

    This is really just a continuation of what came before. Something of the fleeting notion of free writing, and channeling the spirit of a young girl who teetered between not having a care in the world and carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders.  For her, the world in 1984 consisted of a […]

    Today’s craft talk newsletter was inspiring. The guest writer waxed on about another writer who wrote with joy for writing and, as it seems, a zest for life itself. Its aim was to remind us that we sometimes have to get away from the notion that writing is grueling work. Let’s be honest, it can […]

    Hello Dear Friends. I’ve had many thoughts these past few days, both while shuffling through my regular routine and also enjoying changing that routine to fit in some extra craft time. I think I said it before.. that this #1000WordsOfSummer challenge isn’t really about the word count for me. It’s mostly about that change in […]

    2022-06-04 #1000WordsOfSummer Day 1: Today is a Good Day to Start ✍️

    Today is the first day of my two-week writing challenge, and as it is with all new projects, I’m enthusiastic and positive. I love to start new projects. I’ve always been a starter. Starting new things is exciting and fun. So much so, that for many years of my life that title phrase, “Today is […]

    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]
