Taking Writing Risks

I did something a little wacky.  I submitted an article for publication in Brevity Magazine.  Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t know what is crazier: Submitting the article or telling you about all it.  The thought of both is making me a little queasy right now. I submitted a short, non-fiction story.  And as I think back to when I first started this blog; I would have never had the courage … Continue reading Taking Writing Risks

A Procrastinator’s​ Guide To Tackling The To-Do List: Blogging Edition

First, A little back story. I thought of the title for this blog post out of the blue one day.  So I quickly opened my WordPress app and typed it in. I hit save, under the Drafts tab.  Making absolutely sure that I didn’t accidentally hit the publish button.  That is the worst!  Publishing something before it’s ready, aaarrgh. It’s awful!  Anyway, as I was double checking that … Continue reading A Procrastinator’s​ Guide To Tackling The To-Do List: Blogging Edition

But, as the weeks went on, I found myself blogging less and less and less.  At one point going more than a month … Continue reading Beginners Bloggers Block

I have a few posts drafted … Continue reading Mischance, Migraines and Milestones

These are a few of my biglyest fears….

I’m not one to post about politics, but I’ve had some things on my chest for a while.  All of them are coming to a head. And here seems like as good as place as any to voice them. The countdown to January 20th continues, and there is no infiltration in sight.  No one is coming to our rescue, no one to deliver us from … Continue reading These are a few of my biglyest fears….

Follow The Yellow Brick Road

It’s been a month.  One month today since the accident. When I got the call that my brother had been in an accident.  I immediately left for the hospital.   It was the simultaneously the slowest and quickest drive there has ever been.  I arrived, and found my way to the ICU floor.  I was met by 2 nurses, later they said they knew who … Continue reading Follow The Yellow Brick Road
