So I like to read successful writers' thoughts on writing because I find the insight really valuable--and it makes me feel like slightly less of a freak to know they all pretty much deal with the same crippling self-doubt I do at times. Hooray for being human, I suppose. One of the themes that comes … Continue reading On writing regularly
So, I'm not really a schedule type person. They annoy me greatly, in fact. I despise having to be somewhere at a certain time or having to produce something on a certain timeline. It makes me extraordinarily fussy. Which, of course, makes things super obnoxious for the people who have to interact with me on … Continue reading Little wins
No, we're not building castles in the sky, for those about to ask. What we ARE doing is spending, like, at least 48 hours SANS CHILDREN. I know, I know, I KNOW.

But if this posting more frequently thing is ever to actually get off the ground, I basically just need to get over myself, right? Therefore, I present to you my attempt at getting over myself, which means I'm just gonna … Continue reading Cortisone, Cannabis, and (Pepsi)Cola
