Happy Halloween! Is there anyone out here in cyberspace who hasn’t seen the movie, The Shining? There’s probably a few. Out of the ones who have seen it though, I bet most think of Jack Nicholson as being the villain. But, as a writer, I would label him as a victim and can identify with … Continue reading Frustration, Doubt… and LibreOffice
If you visited my blog soon after my last post, you had noticed I changed the design theme again. I get a little erratic with web design some times. Before I got into blogging—about nine years ago—I was making web graphics and constructing web page CSS layouts. I wasn’t making any money off of the … Continue reading Why Do You Write?
Thinking back on this past May when the northern hemisphere was enthusiastic with life, color, fresh warm air, and everything else spring had to offer, I remember how jubilant I felt about my writing. Yet, at first, during those days, I was wrestling with how to go about the process of writing. Being on a … Continue reading Expectations and Boredom
I've been in the serious writing mode for a little over six years now. Fear is my worse enemy, which isn't surprising seeing it's an obstacle many writers have. In a valiant attempt to get rid of the ambiguity I feel when I sit at my desk and try to write something decent, I've tried … Continue reading Still Grappling with the Method
Disability is a subject I’m reluctant to write about in a post here at my blog. After all, I am not my disability. I have a page on the subject, My Disability Quirks, to give my readers an explanation for some of the more erratic things that go on in my daily life that may … Continue reading Inexcusable Discriminatory Rationale
Since being on the new medication, I’ve found my fervent muse. It was lurking in the murkiness of my mind waiting for my body to give it the ratification to leave its sanctum. My gut is actually and truly behaving itself these days. It’s such a change for me. For months upon months, I was … Continue reading Character Sketch & Whatnot
This last month was chalked full of appointments. Some were of a medical nature while others were dental. What’s the difference? Actually, as far as I can tell, there isn’t any difference between the two. Both types of doctors provide services that keep us healthy or, hopefully, restore health to us. It’s just done in … Continue reading What Have I Been Doing?
I’ve always thought of March as a blustery month. If you’ve ever read the book Winnie to Pooh or have had it read to you, you probably remember one of the first scenes where Winnie the Pooh was describing the day as being blustery, full the whirlwinds dancing on the ground. This March has been … Continue reading Minuscule Writing
I thought I’d try my hand at telling you something about my past for a change. I don’t consider it really a memoir-type feature though. But, then again, maybe that’s what it is. You tell me. § Photo-invoked Memory As the caption below the photo says, this is not my snapshot. When I saw … Continue reading Photo-invoked Memory & Quantum Notes
As I told you in my last post, I made the decision to severely weed my blog subscriptions to a more managed number. I went from 51 blogs using WordPress.Com hitting my email inbox to a mere 16. And with the 16 left, I've opted for a weekly digest. I do still have a few … Continue reading Can I Write a Book? & Quantum Notes
As I wrote this entry, I pondered briefly about how many people would read this seeing that tomorrow is New Year's Eve. Maybe you’ll just let it sit until January 2nd and, then, read it, which would be fine by me. Or maybe you’re taking a leisurely weekend and would read it as soon as … Continue reading Story First & Quantum Notes
Well, I tried the random approach to publishing my posts. I don't like it, not at all. Although I've been trying to write on my project without a schedule, taking it to my blog just isn't working for me. Maybe it isn't working for my WiP either and I'm just not ready to accept that … Continue reading Goals & Quantum Notes
