    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 […]

    2022-03-17 Something Only Slightly More than Nothing 🍀🍀🍀

    I am so low energy today. Rough night and you know, lately I’ve been pushing hard physically and am tired from that too.  I’ve also been trying to think about what might be a worthy blog post and just don’t have it.  I know, I know. When has that ever stopped me before??! 🙃 What’s […]

    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 […]

    2022-02-23 So.. What’s New With You?

    I know, I know… I missed “Two’s day” It was everywhere, though so I didn’t want to be cliché. That’s a lie. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not afraid of being cliché; I embrace it like bad poetry. 😜 I am sad I missed posting yesterday and having the opportunity to type that date […]

    2022-02-16 The Newest New Shiny

    It seems like I get the most satisfaction when I’m working on a new project that I’m excited about. I get distracted by a new shiny and somehow that becomes my whole goal in life. I forget what was important yesterday… and pour my heart into what’s new.  I think that’s only human.  Working on […]

    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 […]

    2022-01-04 On Tuesday’s I Take Out the Trash

    I’d love to say I do it for alliteration’s sake because something deep in me is enchanted by the sounds of words that just fit together in my mouth in a pleasing and natural way. But I take out the trash on Tuesday because Wednesday is the day the Man comes to haul it away.  […]

    2021-12-22 It’s a Numbers Nerding Kind of Day

    Yesterday I let myself become immersed in a total left-brain organizational task. It was very satisfying. I did some folder/file shuffling and a little accounting with a focus on the poems I’ve published to date.  I’m in a numbers kind of mood. I guess that’s what I do when I fail to write. I’ve been […]

    2021-12-09 Random This and That Thursday ✍🏻💊📖🤷‍♀️…

    Today I’ve been working on a variety of things and it’s mostly good and I haven’t even had to leave my couch and that’s fine with me.  It’s mostly been communications related but I did take a wee break in the middle of the day to join a creative writing session. That was nice though […]

    2021-12-03 Practicing Shameless Self-Promotion

    Hello. My name is Shyla and I suck at self-promotion. Here’s a link to my first book: Unsuspecting Cinderella. Please buy it.  See what I mean? I really have no idea how to get people to buy my book. Hell, I am not even comfortable telling people about it. I mean, I’ll tell you all […]
