In my post Progress, Not Perfection, I go on about journaling and, specifically, the use of “prompted” journals. The prompt I was given for my January 1st, 2021 entry was: Why do you write? What does it do for you? […]

Zombies Among Us

By |December 3rd, 2020|Categories: General, Thoughts|6 Comments

A few years back I wrote a blog (What’s So Scary About…?) where I shared what scares me and what doesn’t. I’ve never been much interested in your run-of-the-mill monsters: vampires, werewolves, and the like. Especially zombies. Lately, however, I’ve been re-thinking my take on those groaning, flesh-eating, walking-corpse-types. […]

Writer Envy (or Man, I Wish I’d Written That!)

By |August 8th, 2020|Categories: General, Reading, Writing|0 Comments

There are numerous articles on “writerly jealousy,” as a simple search via your browser will reveal. This post is to be yet another. However, I feel I need to begin by clarifying that, by definition, it cannot be referred to as jealousy – it is envy. […]

Two Words

I was engaging in casual conversation with someone at work recently (no, I don’t make a living at writing; I have a “real” job) when out-of-nowhere this person flew into a tangent rage about how fictitious today’s news reporting is. “It’s all fake!” they claimed with extreme, vehement insistence.

Full Circle

By |June 4th, 2020|Categories: General, Thoughts, Writing|2 Comments

I don’t believe in pre-determined destiny. The conscious and sometimes subconscious choices we make are what design our ultimate path (made up of a multitude of paths) and determine where we end up at any given moment. Have you ever looked back and connected the dots, the moments of your life that lead to where you’re at right now? It can be enlightening. Sometimes I do it on purpose. Sometimes it comes out of nowhere. […]

I had intended to write this month a blog post laced with wit and levity in regards to the pandemic we currently find ourselves in. It was going to be in the form of a Top Ten List, a countdown citing the positive side to this tense and cautious time. […]
