It’s Not Real Unless You Put It In Writing

I’m a little behind the curve for this new decade already. A couple days in I caught the nastiest cold I’ve had in a while. (Maybe the flu? We’ll say it’s a cold…but it kicked my ass.) Today is the first day I’ve felt… Continue Reading “It’s Not Real Unless You Put It In Writing”

Challenges 2014: EPIC Edition

Because I’m a little insane, I’ve decided to give myself some challenges this year. (I don’t like to call them “resolutions” because then I won’t do them. I rebel against that kinda shit.)

Missing Your Goal Doesn’t Mean You Didn’t Accomplish Anything

Writing Schedules!

We all do it, and now we can count Virginia Woolf among the ranks of “Writers Who Obsessively Plan About When To Get Stuff Done!” Take for example: “But my mind is full of The Hours [Mrs. Dalloway]. I am now saying that I… Continue Reading “Writing Schedules!”

August Wrap Up and Heading into September

Tonight is the CWC meeting–the last one in Colorado Springs. Ali decided to up and move, so that puts us down in Pueblo, since that’s the halfway point for most of us. I’ll miss Panera…. Anyway, instead of mourning the loss of my favorite… Continue Reading “August Wrap Up and Heading into September”

Finished vs Completed
