I don’t enjoy the cold very much. In fact, I greatly prefer the summer, sunburn and all. But since I also try to be grateful for things, here’s what I do like about the autumn weather.
Not winter. I’m not there yet. Continue reading
I also watched an episode of “Say Yes to the Dress”, so that’s where the title came from. I’d apologize for it except that I can honestly say I don’t watch much reality TV and I’m not averse to swiping a decent title for a pun-y blog post.
I had a chance to write a story that would end up in an anthology. AKA, published. I decided not to. Here’s why. Continue reading
Seriously. I can’t even tell anymore. I’ve tried figuring out a sleep schedule that I can keep to, that will require minimal alteration to keep on track. And will also keep at a healthy level of sleep. And will get me out of bed in time for work in the morning.
Why is this so hard? This doesn’t seem like it should be so hard. Continue reading
I like movies (which is nothing particularly revelatory, but it does establish a little context for this post). Ticket prices being what they are, there’s not a lot of chance for me to see many movies in the theater, so it’s telling that I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 twice. I like this movie, for the soundtrack, the characters, the humor, and the story. Continue reading
Ever so often, in the middle of a busy schedule, it is important to stop, let go of the stress and remember where to find the good things in life. (Like, for example, when rebooting one’s computer for the fourth time in an hour.

This week was a little frustrating because I totally failed at accomplishing my goals for the week, and when I did my end-of-month tally I was confronted by the fact that I also failed at my monthly goals. On one hand, this was because my day job picked up a little bit and I was reading a lot more helpful blog posts and working on my limited networking skills. So no time. On the other hand, I hate not finishing my to-do lists. Gah!
But Continue reading
It’s almost Christmas! Shopping is done, cookies are baked, presents are wrapped. (At least, hopefully all that’s done. If not somebody’s in trouble.) And hopefully all this writing I’ve got backlogged will be caught up on before tomorrow so the day can be enjoyed peacefully. Or maybe I’ll just write a Christmas story featuring my characters, which will either be fun and a good exercise, or painful and take forever.
Mostly I just wanted to wish people a merry Christmas! Hope you have a lovely holiday season!
I went to the library today and came home full of enthusiasm for writing and life in general. Sitting down almost immediately after to start writing this blog post, I made the connection that this is what usually happens after a library trip, whether I have an armful of books or not. And it’s not just what I get out of the reading, either. Made me curious to investigate. Continue reading
