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
In my last post, I told you about how I would be handling my blog from now on, sporadic entries. And, hopefully, at least one per month. I got some good feedback on this decision, although the commenters assumed I was trying to keep things in my life more balanced. Everything in correlative portions. As … Continue reading Quantum Notes
I was going to write about something personal using the hashtag, #thepersonalside, but I’m not quite ready to tell you about the goings-on husband and I are trying to accomplish. Maybe next week. So, this week I’m using the hashtag, #writerslife. 🙂 § I’ve been missing one piece of equipment to finish the rewrite/revision of … Continue reading #writerslife: Printers are a Pain!
The weather is getting nippy outside here in the northern hemisphere. Up in Canada and throughout the northern states of the U.S. there is snow covering the landscape. Here where I live there has only been cold rain, although that could change at any time now. Recently, I bought some cinnamon herbal tea, which has … Continue reading #weekendcoffeeshare: Optimist, Pessimist, Realist
The people who have been reading my blog for a while are well aware of my problems of adversity in my writing. They are often petty and ordinary in the realm of writing. Although I refuse to believe in writer’s block, I am pretty sure I have the affliction of “creative fear”. I can think … Continue reading #writingcraft: What is My Writing Affliction?
The harrowing D word is death. From what I have observed, most people can get themselves to say the word but only in the appropriate circumstances and in hushed voices. I can only hypothesize these people think of death as unsettling and, maybe, even deranged. …we can lessen our fear of dying by living a … Continue reading #takeonnews: The Harrowing D Word
Lee Martin, an established author with several books under his belt, wrote a blog post in June, Strings of Cause and Effect: Writing Our Ancestors. I found it interesting how his imagination is able to fathom how events had happened for his ancestors onto that life progress that lead to him. My thoughts on this … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Strands of Respite

On May 15, 2017, the blog published one of these posts asking the readers about if they prefer silence or noise during their … Continue reading #writingcraft: No Talking, PLEASE!
I do not bring up my health afflictions often but I do mention them on occasion because they do affect my writing. The last two times I wrote about my perils with health are here and here. [Both links open a new window.] These problems still inhibit my daily routine at times and probably will … Continue reading #amwriting: Health Disturbances and Writing
What do I believe my purpose in life is? I do not have a clue. Some say whatever goals you make in life is your purpose. I do not agree. Life purpose, I would think, would be more along the lines of destiny. I could get into all the angles of the Forrest Gump philosophy … Continue reading #amwriting: Purpose in Life
Diana at Part Time Monster used to host a weekly link-up, where you can submit a link to your post and browse everything else that’s been submitted, or you can use the #weekendcoffeeshare hashtag on Twitter or Facebook. However, her last #weekendcoffeeshare was last June. Still, I like this idea of a dialogue so I’m … Continue reading #weekendcoffeeshare: Writing during the Holiday Season
Back when I was in high school writing short [very short] stories and poems in a spiral notebook while sitting on my bed Indian style, I wrote until I had nothing more to say or until I heard my mom yell for help in fixing the evening meal. I didn’t give one inkling of thought … Continue reading Assessing Time
