It was a dream come true. Hasn’t every child longed for the day his or her mother would say, “Eat as much candy as you like”? Our day had finally come. We were on a long drive—okay, as a child, basically anything longer than 10 minutes feels like a long drive—and, always the perfect children,… Continue reading Peach Licorice and Dreams
Schedule Update and Writing Goals
Having left off last time saying I was getting up at 4:45 AM and "happy" about it, I was thinking it was about time for an update, and a question from one of my friends accentuated the fact. And the verdict is currently: I am still getting up at 4:45. And I am still at… Continue reading Schedule Update and Writing Goals
Life of a Masters Student
I am a little afraid to look at how long it has been since I have posted anything. But I have an excellent excuse. My husband and I just started a masters program! I won't spend too long on this, since all my friends have already heard my numerous complaints, but it has essentially sucked… Continue reading Life of a Masters Student
Writing in 2018!
Good follow-up post to my "writing more" goal (not resolution) for 2018. 😛 Happy New Year! Before we all climb in and buckle up for our 2018 writing journey, I think we need to agree on what needs to be packed. Now I know some of us are very excited about our journey but it’s… Continue reading Writing in 2018!
Libraries, Research, and 15 Minutes
I read it over and over again. 15 minutes a day. Write at least 15 minutes a day. To the extent that I half roll my eyes when I read it now. I know, I know. Okay? It's not my fault that I had to . . . [insert whatever I am busy with that day].… Continue reading Libraries, Research, and 15 Minutes
The Secret to Joy
I feel like I write these type of posts a lot, so if you still read them, either I am not alone in the world of figuring oneself out or you are really bored. All of you who have been around awhile or read previous posts know that I am the type to constantly push… Continue reading The Secret to Joy
Careers and Relaxation
Since my last post (other than the awesome NaNoToons I just shared) was all down-in-the-dumps-self-pity, I figured I should give you guys an update sooner than I usually do. After a semi-good nights sleep, I felt worlds better the following day. But, my husband being the darling person he is and generally able to tell… Continue reading Careers and Relaxation
A New Year, A Grateful Outlook
As I sit in my lovely living room, the Jim Brickman station playing softly in the background, curtains drawn, a cup of tea (yes, in a teacup) and the beautifully lit Christmas tree in front of me, it feels more like early morning than almost 11:00 AM. Of course, the magic of the moment keeps… Continue reading A New Year, A Grateful Outlook
Sorry I haven't posted in so long - I have been busy with life: Settling in to my new job, setting up Christmas stuff, recovering from a week and a half with my in-laws . . . all that. 🙂 So, here are my upcoming writing goals. I think it will be significantly harder to… Continue reading Upcoming Goals
