Three Days Remaining

Good afternoon, friends! There are three days left in 2019. That means there are three days left before 2020 starts. And my one MILLION word challenge. I’m doing it. I’m going to do it with a friend. In fact, in a way, I’ve already started. I started a book in November, at the very tail […]

Twinkle

It’s the last month, and the only thing the prompt makes me think of is a screenshot I found on Pinterest of a Tumblr post. It reads: twinkle twinkle, little starwhy is art so fucking hard up above the world so highi can’t draw the other eye twinkle twinkle little fuckdammitwhat thei give up tumblr […]

I was thinking…

I was thinking about trying to write more next year. I had a heck of a lot of fun (as I always do) writing this November (when I finally got around to it — when life settled down enough to let it happen) that I want to keep it up. Of course, that feeling might […]

Thankful

I am thankful for Bliss Kiss’s nail oil. It does a really good job of healing my cuticles (which I have a tendency to bother with until my cuticles are a hot mess) when I remember to use it regularly. I am thankful for my family. Despite my significant lack of self-confidence, I am raising […]

CREATIVE THINGS

CREATIVE THINGS

Here’s a quick update on the Creative Things I’m doing lately. It’s just #Inktober2019 I’m really enjoying it. I end up staying almost on track – right now I’m behind 1 day so I’ll catch up when I get home on yesterday and today. My version of #Inktober is lettering with doodles since that is […]

Shiver

The temperatures are finally in the range where I wish I’d planned ahead and worn my jacket in the morning, but still warm enough that I’ll forget that jacket in the afternoon. It’s cool enough that yesterday, meeting a friend to exchange greetings (and dinner), my knees shook as the rain misted us and the […]

Anxiety/Frustration

Frustranxiety? That might work. I’m anxious. And frustrated. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. When I have time to craft, I just want to be behind a computer. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, BRAIN. I don’t like this. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. […]

It’s not working (Writer’s Group, No Writing!)

My writing group isn’t working for me. It’s not even a writing group like it was when we started. When we started, we got together and were quiet for giant swaths of time as we wrote, stopping to ask a question, get it answered, and move on. Sometimes we talked at length about someone’s story […]

Water, floating

I learned a thing from the Internet (so please don’t take this as gospel) that you’re supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in oz of water every day. (Have I mentioned this before? Please forgive me if I have.) So I’m giving it a shot. At first it was really hard. I felt like […]

CRAFT, sleep, lack of caffeine, and other things flying through my head at a million miles an hour

How much of that blog title will make it into the site URL, I wonder? I need to craft something. Usually I get this urge in December after writing hard during November, but it’s here now. I want to cross stitch or embroider (I don’t know how to do that, by the way), or maybe […]
