Reawakened

So, I'm going to be honest for a second. I've been in a bit of a slump when it comes to writing. It happens. It's not an unusual phenomenon for writers and other creative folk. Except this time, none of my go-to methods for sparking inspiration have worked. I sit down to write and... nothing... Continue Reading →

Thumbs

We all have flaws. I am a flawed being, and, though I consider myself relatively good at admitting to and aspiring to mend my flaws, there are some I cannot change because they are a part of me. I am, of course, talking about my thumbs. I am the unfortunate bearer of what some may... Continue Reading →

When the well of inspiration runs dry, there are a few methods that I utilize to get myself back on track. I have mentioned a few in previous posts, but I must admit, I have one trick that also counts as a "guilty pleasure" of sorts... When I get stuck, and the creative juices simply...

I am always curious to know how others folks handle their stress, because I struggle with it and have yet to find a solution that sticks, especially now that I've more or less kicked my caffeine...

Current Tunes

For a bit of a smaller post this Friday, I thought I'd take a moment to list some of the songs that feature on my current playlist and have helped to boost my motivation lately. Lauren Aquilina - Fools  I only recently discovered this artist and am super bummed she doesn't make music anymore (performing-wise,... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #10: Reese

On a Wednesday night in 2007, I received a cryptic text message from my older sister while watching the latest episode of Lost. The message contained only one word. Meow. Some time later, I was dozing off on the couch when my sister returned home and deposited something furry onto my lap. I opened bleary... Continue Reading →
