This is going to be a weird topic for me to come briefly out of hiatus for, but the more I thought about it, the more I needed to get my thoughts out in a coherent way on the topic. I've just seen the news that Chester Bennington, the lead vocalist for Linkin Park, has … Continue reading Death of an Inspiration
Being unemployed gives me a good chunk of time to look at myself and how I work, because in all technicality, it puts me in the situation I want to be in. Able to devote all my time to writing and other such endeavors, able to focus only on what I want to focus on, … Continue reading Learning About Myself
I always seem to run into the same problem right about now. I’ve essentially recovered from the chaos and madness of November, had all of the holidays to rest, and now I’m ready to get back on track--not only with stuff like my eating, but also my writing. I want to have a new project, … Continue reading What’s Next?
...here I am, a week later than intended. Oops? You all know how bad it can get during NaNoWriMo. I suddenly looked at my calendar while I was filling in my bullet journal and went "...oh. Right. Blog posts. Oops." For the first 4 days of November, I was either entirely focused on writing, or … Continue reading True to Form…
Well, it's almost October, which means you know what's coming. I will never apologize for that. Every year, this is what I think of. I am unrepentant. But it's true, November is coming and I have no idea what I'm doing for the month. What I'm thinking, however, is that I'm going to use October … Continue reading Trying to Plan for the Future
I posted about using a bullet journal recently, and I figured I'd update you on how it's been going. I don't have any shiny pictures, but that's more because there's still a bunch of personal stuff on the pages that y'all don't need to see. Next time I set up a weekly page or so, … Continue reading Keeping Organized
I've always liked the idea of a day planner, but I've never been very good at keeping one. Even when I was in high school and they gave you one every year to track your assignments, I did the bare minimum with it, and always wanted to do more and didn't manage to do it. … Continue reading Finding a Method for My Madness
So in my quest to be a more-published author, I routinely wander off and look for places accepting submissions. I'm not fantastic at short stories, but I've gotten a bit better and it's easier to find places accepting those than trying to find somewhere your little niche book will fit in. But here is the … Continue reading Chasing the Elusive “Idea”
(Author's note: I'm writing this just before I leave on my weekend trip, and I'm on very little sleep and only have half of an idea of what I was thinking when I started this post. Sorry if it loses focus!) One of the more commonly asked questions I see floating around the writing community … Continue reading Background Music
I know I've talked about writing through depression before, but I'm not sure I've talked much about what we'd all consider "writer's block." I can't remember; I know I've talked about it somewhere, and it was probably here, but HEY LET'S DO IT AGAIN. That feeds into what I'm talking about anyway. I can make … Continue reading When the Words Won’t Come
