It has been sold time since my last post. I feel like I’m forever saying that. I guess life gets busier and busier and well you just tend to forget the blog that’s sitting there waiting to be written. Things have been happening, naturally, a little too fast to write them down…or decide which ones … More I am not Dead
Perhaps one of the lesser known characters in the Pilgrim’s Progress, Mr. Fearing is one that I nearly forgot about, and certainly thought very little of until I started writing Marianna. In fact, it wasn’t until very recently that I understood that he and I share something of a kinship. Mr. Fearing had an honest heart. But, as … More I Am Fearing
It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the process of writing so I thought I’d revisit it. And the particular part I’m revisiting is that of the leading ladies. You know, ladies have always been pretty important in my life. Starting with mom, of course, and moving on to when I was three-years-old and … More Process of Writing Revisited
Well it’s time for another Pilgrim’s Progress 3 update. So I’m on the next chapter. I think I mentioned wanting to do video blogs on Marianna in the future. I probably will at some point. Just need a good place to shoot–which at the moment is not my room. That’s my most major current project, … More Progress
Just missing the mountains today…
Well it’s a new year! And I delayed my writing until now. I don’t like to talk discouraging things–it has it’s way of reacting back on one’s self. Because honestly I was thinking that 2014 was perhaps the biggest waste of my life. I started thinking about all that could have been. Don’t get me … More Happy New Year!
So it’s almost thanksgiving. It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been working on school assignments and job hunting and my EP. The road to sustainable self employment is not an overnight one. Nonetheless I am on it, for better or worse. So this week I want to reflect on the things for which … More Thanksgiving
Well it’s another random Monday–at least where I am now =) So last week I took the time to focus on a different form of writing. A presentation. Specifically a PowerPoint presentation (still in my Instagram feed on the side bar). I think I’m getting the hang of doing this after all. It’s funny I … More Random Mondays
The fact is every writer needs critiques, needs advice. How you handle it, though, determines whether you become a better writer or collapse into a weeping ball of…tears. Hm, little dramatic. Those were close to my two extremes. I didn’t always collapse–not that anyone could see, that is. But I did tend to reevaluate myself to … More Process of Writing: Handling Advice
So I think I mentioned a while back that I was trying to compose a new song to go on my album/EP (haven’t decided which yet) I probably didn’t say what I was doing with the song at that. Hm. Anyway, that project basically crashed so I decided “Why not arrange one that’s … More Process of Writing: Song Arrangement?
