Conversation To Inspiration

A few days ago I was talking with my second oldest son in the car and somehow the subject of empty promises came up. We were discussing how my generation was raised with parents from a completely different era and how their thought processes worked and how that affected us. One...

Talkin’ ‘Bout Things

  Thing the First: Son 3 finished his homework in record time yesterday: 3 pages in 30 minutes (four if you count math front and back but he only has to do even or odd numbers depending on the day-still…it’s multiplying fractions, ’nuff said). We struggle every day getting him to...

Writing About Knitting Is A Thing..

  Four years ago, before the creation of this blog, I had another blog. A knitting blog. Yes, where I talked about knitting specifically. I have no idea if I had any followers because I was on Blogger and didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I looked at it...

Rediscovered

Funny. Over at Poets On The Page, yesterday’s poetry prompt was to rediscover an abandoned poem and “finish” it. Last year I actually did just that and when I found the poem and it’s revamped self, I sat back and smiled a little. The revamped poem is about rediscovery. So, here...

Just Not Feeling It

Dear Lunatics, It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I wish I could say that there was a really good reason for why I haven’t written in so long. Well, actually, there are several very good reasons, which I am not going to talk about in a public forum. Basically, life has...

Remember Polaroids?

So I woke up this morning after having had a rather sad dream about my mom and Christmas, and this was what kept playing through my head once I was alert enough to become cognizant of the words. Jesi P.S. Make sure to check out my post over at Twisted Writers...

In Which I Compare Writing To Knitting

A Quick NaNo Update: 31,000 words and Counting

I can’t believe it! I have officially written 31,000 words. And that’s after being behind by 6,000 words over this last weekend. Consider that every day adds another 1,667 words to whatever I end up being behind and you can guess how much work it take to catch up. I spent...

Turning Adversity Into Your Advantage

If you follow this blog you will have noticed that I haven’t been posting as often as I normally do. Part of the reason is, of course, the overwhelming writing challenge that is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which I’ve talked about the last few posts. The other part, and a...
