    How often have you said, ‘It has to be perfect?’ and missed an opportunity to learn and grow waiting for that speck of perfection? I have and I’ve missed out

    What inspires you?

    Sorry it’s been a while. Life has been working me hard and wringing me out like an old, smelly, dishrag. The good news is I’m writing. The bad news is

    Diversity in Books #weneeddiversebooks

    I grew up reading – a lot. My parents settled on a 5-acre stretch in Maryland with intent of creating a legacy. I grew up with a vast garden, chickens

    Looking to the New Year

    If I were to count my success in 2014 by the goals I set up last New Year’s, this year could qualify as a failure. No, I didn’t make my

    Time-y Wimey

    I know that time is perceived as a linear thing, but it’s not. It’s messy and filled with snarls. To make matters worse, it seems to compress and speed up

End of Week 1 – The plot bunnies have taken over #NaNoWiMo


Dear NaNoWriMo Diary,

The week has been productive. My word count is well above 15k. I’ve only gone off-topic once {{eye-roll}}, okay, maybe 12-ish times. No one is dead yet, I’m working on my George R.R. Martin inspired moments, but I’m trying.

I get going and suddenly my brain is overwhelmed by ideas completely unrelated to my project.

I’m counting those words I’m using toward my over all word count. I am! I don’t care if it is against the rules!!!

Some one at work mentioned I seemed a little jittery, I had to talk to HR after I bit his head off. Maybe I should cut back on the Dr. Pepper and stick with tea. Nope, I need the buzz. I’ll just figure out a way to work from home for the rest of the month.

Just checking in. I feel a need to destroy things. That’s a good thing.
