I hope your February was merry. And love filled 😏. And that your March has started off well. Its Women's month so I hope you are on the look out for injustices against women (which are many) and righting those wrongs. I intend to show up this March, add my voice to some of the … Continue reading In the face of doubt
First Writer’s Wednesday of the year. (And hopefully it will persist with some bi-weekly consistency.) I had the pleasure of listening to some of Elizabeth Gilbert's interviews on writing, and I also read her book 'Big Magic'. I liked her wit, especially in the interviews and perspective on what writing was to her. One thing … Continue reading The best writing advice…
Do not introduce anyone to a routine you will not be able to maintain! Hey, this is a repost from last year. Sometime last week, I was asked for what I want to be known for and consistency was one of those things on my list. I hope this helps get your thoughts out on … Continue reading The pressures of consistency!

For a work assignment - if you dare believe it - one of my colleagues had to write a love letter. Wild stuff. Interesting stuff. And as we all reviewed it, we got to talking about love letters and letters in general. (I personally hope me and my person - if they are there - … Continue reading On letter writing
Does it feel like the months are creeping up on you this year? Like time is playing hide and seek with you but you have no idea that you should be playing? No?! Guess it's just me then. But I like how October has rolled in for me. Its a little busier than I have … Continue reading Hello October!
What other catchphrases do you know work well for the number '2'!! Because the blog has made two years🥳🥳🥳🥳. The years go by so fast, don't they!! This happened over the weekend and somehow I forgot to write about it. A part of me thought I should let it go. Then I remembered that I'm … Continue reading Blogiversary: Double the drama!!
Bringing this back from a series I did in the Winter ABC challenge - in case you missed it. One of the things I totally appreciate about the digital revolution is how many writing platforms there are. It's great exposure and most of them are mostly free. So I figured I could share some of … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Writing on a budget
I don't do as much poetry on this blog as I would like but this is one of those odd days where there is a poem. Of sorts. Kind of. I haven't had much experience with reverse poetry but I have read a few. Maybe one of the most popular would be Pretty Ugly by … Continue reading Attempting reverse poetry
