Adding to the Cultural Landscape

I’m well aware I’m not going to be famous on TV in the immediate future – that’s never been a goal for me. I know I’m also not going to be “Internet Famous” either. I don’t have the follow through to make it happen. All I want is just a small following of people that […]

Motivation

Last night I was washing the dishes. Not in order to feel good about myself – no, sometimes I need to clean to ward off negative energy instead. Last night I was feeling ready to blow up at my dog, who was driving me a little batty. Instead, I attacked the dishes. As it tends […]

Notebook Habit

I’ve got what I consider to be a “weird” hobby (or habit?) – writing in notebooks.  I consider it weird, because I have no practical use for notebooks – other than my “bullet journal” set up, I don’t really write down anything of substance day-to-day.  And yet, it’s an extremely enjoyable thing to see my […]

Trying Something New

As I type this introduction to the blog post after typing the title, I realize that this should be the perfect post title to match with a life experience that I’m trying new for the first time to follow up my post about acting a couple of weeks ago.  Disappointingly, it’s not about that (for now, […]

Plans, plans, more plans!

OK, so it’s been a week since I wrote publicly that I wanted to get back into writing on this blog (writing in general, really) and yet, this is the first time I’m writing.  If I was serious about it, wouldn’t I have written some posts by now?  Maybe some actual content, instead of posts about […]

Avoid creative block

It’s funny – just this afternoon I was feeling an urge to be creative – I just didn’t know what I wanted to create.  I still don’t, actually.  But I thought opening up my WP dashboard (for the first time in weeks, admittedly) would be a good place to start. I figured, “Why don’t I type […]

Usefulness of Medium

I really like Medium.com.  There’s a wide range of articles available on virtually ANY topic – from the trivial to the very important.  And if I were feeling lazy, I’d end my post right there – those are reasons enough for me to publicly state my fondness for Medium.  But I’m not (too) lazy.

I’ve Had Enough of You, Yoast SEO

When I started this new blog in January, my number one goal – and today it’s still the number one goal – was to engage readers.  That hasn’t exactly happened.  But that’s okay, and I’m still working on it. But one of the reasons I pushed forward and bought a domain name with a WordPress […]

Story Idea Up For Grabs

I got a story idea a few weeks ago, but I haven’t really bothered to put pen to paper to develop it at all.  So it’s now up for grabs! I was listening to Almost Educational Episode 131 about time travel.  At some point while I was listening, the idea for a piece of flash […]

Flash Fiction Prompt

I was listening to Episode 35 of Anthology yesterday which covered the topic of genies.  It got me thinking a little bit about something to write, but as usual I was on a walk while I was listening to this is all based on memory! Anyway, I thought I’d provide everyone with a Flash Fiction […]
