Finding The Elusive Positives, #NANOWRIMO & #WriteMotivation

If anyone knows me, they know I’m a strong believer in positive thinking to achieve a healthy outlook on whatever ails you. It is the hardest thing some of us will ever do in our lives. Right now, I’ve been struggling. When you see your love struggle day after day and lose their hope, when […]

This Is Life.

Watch this ballerina perform En Pointe on the tips of KITCHEN KNIVES! The universe is so full of polar opposites. It’s a constant battle between hot and cold, light and dark, wet and dry, white and black, positively and negatively charged, good and evil, ugly and beauty. Our universe constantly pulls one way or another trying to find […]

Final September #WriteMotivation Update

I’ve been utterly exhausted lately. My sleep patterns have not been good. So, all that I’ve had time for is watching the entire series of Breaking Bad in my off time….which isn’t much (I mean, it took me a month to watch them all!) The majority of time is eaten up at work. We’ve gotten […]

It Could Have Happened To Me + September #WriteMotivation Update 2

Have you ever left your house 5 minutes late and pass a very bad car accident on your way to where ever, and realize that had you been on time, that could have been you? Have you ever got what you needed off a shelf at a grocery store and moments later someone comes up […]

Guest Post: M. S. Kaye on Motivation

I thought I’d take a bit to introduce you to a local crit partner. Though I haven’t been participating like I should on account of all the things going on in my life, when I did participate, the group was very lovely, encouraging, and just down right amazing! M. S. Kaye runs it and she’s […]

Kitty Update and September #WriteMotivation Update1

As many of you know, we’ve been dealing with a rather sick Theo. It started out with a ruptured anal gland, which never healed. So they had to do surgery, where they found massive pockets of bacteria. They took cultures and gave us antibiotics to give Theo. He then had a reaction to it and […]

Happy Birthday to Me!!! & #WriteMotivation August Update #2

So, today marks another trip around the sun. It’s been two years since I’ve managed to engage in a holding pattern as The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything. So this also makes me a TIME LORD! And I’ve inadvertently discovered time travel. So where’s my TARDIS?? Why is there not […]

Sitting Is Killing You (plus #WriteMotivation August Update #1)

A while back, end of last year I guess, I suffered from a repetitive stress injury in my hand, shoulder, and elbow. It got so bad I couldn’t even lift a one pound weight. I had to go through physical therapy and readjust my work space. Luckily, my boss was kind and bought me an […]

What Happens When The Words Stop? #WriteMotivation

Emptiness. That’s what I feel right now. Sorrow and emptiness. All because my head is silent. It’s not that I’m lacking ideas. Boy do I have plenty of them. Sticky notes, scribbles in notebooks, scraps of paper, a Word document, and even something in EverNote designed for just that, ideas. I’ve got plenty of story […]

First July #WriteMotivation Update — FINALLY!

It’s been a very busy first week of the month, starting with the end of last month. I had a little mini-vacation and I took my family down to Disney for a little weekend excursion. And this happened: We got to meet up with Cheyenne and TheScottsman while they were in Disney on their vacation. […]

#WriteMotivation June Update #3

June’s goals 1) Be Positive, Try to find the positive in every situation, no matter how small. Ok, so last week was a bit of a challenge on this front. I spent most of my week dealing with ID-10-Ts at the Day Job, which zapped all energy out of me. I think emotional exhaustion is worse […]
