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.

Well we’re here! Another month of the year =) I realize I’ve missed some posts–life has take a turn for the busier. After finishing Sasquatch, I started focusing more on creating music as well as writing Marianna. And as far as my room goes, it looks like I’m back where I started! It still looks like … More Random Wednesday?
So this week I was thinking about the small victories of writing. You know, when you set that goal to write 1500 words and our write 1509? Maybe it’s because I just finished the second chapter of Marianna, but it made me think of at least two ways I could take this small victory. I … More Process of Writing: small victories
So I’m a little late for random Mondays, I was in town all day. Sigh. I won’t hat into that, it was good to restock the house and I even got to do a little writing!
