What will you try to do everyday next year?

avatar

The Daily Post asks: What will you try to do everyday next year? That’s a tough question. I guess the ultimate answer is: breathe. I’d love to toss out answers such as “Oh, I’ll write 500 words every day.” or “read at least two chapters from a book every day.” and so on. If I […]

M&M’s tube toppers

avatar

Looks like it’s that time of year again when you’re supposed to be full of cheer and generosity… I pulled down this sad looking ‘Charlie Brown’ tree from the attic along with the many M&M’s tube toppers that I’ve been collecting over the years. It started with the family tradition of having M&M’s tubes in […]

NaNoWriMo 2011 comes to an end.

avatar

So it’s the final day of November and NaNoWriMo 2011 comes to an end. I crossed the finish line today with 50,452 words. This story worked my last nerve. It was like trying to drag an inconsolable child that often threw temper tantrums or tried to run away, forcing me to chase it down. The […]

Damodar sunk his sword into your shoulder and…

Yeah, I’m still doing that ‘trick’ where I have the “Dungeons & Dragons” DVD playing so that I can’t slip into the whole ‘tv watching’ bit when I keep stalling out on my writing. With it playing in the background and the remote out of reach, I can’t go channel-surfing. Helps a lot in keeping […]

Missed a day of NNWMing…

I seem to be struggling with something for the past few days. It started with a slight itching in the back of the throat and then went away the next day but it kept coming back in other forms. Now my nose keeps being stuffy and I just want to sleep all the time. Yesterday […]

Getting late in the night…

avatar

It’s sort of odd to sit here in the middle of the night when everything has crawled to a complete stop. I have no idea what to do. I’m not tired yet I am. Nothing’s on tv despite the fact that I have quite a few shows DVR’d. Everything’s muted or completely off, and I’m […]

Gingerbread Painting

avatar

Finally started on the Gingerbread Flower Shop and I expect this one to be a breeze. The other pieces still need a lot of detailing before I can start sealing them up for outdoor use. My writing is going ‘quicker’ as in that it’s not taking me all day long to make it to the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wonder

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Wonder The example image they provided for the photo challenge made me think of this sunflower picture that I took back in June. I loved how there was a spiraling pattern and how the edge was golden.

How quickly the tide changes.

I finally made an important decision today concerning my story. I wasn’t going to allow myself to visit this scene until the 15th so that I know that I’m at least halfway through the story. With how I’ve been dragging my feet, hating the story in its entirety, and struggling to make anything else happen, […]

Struggling to get away.

avatar

I’m struggling to get away from this monster that’s hassling me for words! Words! He says I owe him words! So bored of this story that I’ve been hammering out for NaNoWriMo. I seriously am. That’s what worries me. There’s no passion going into this story like the passion I had for last year’s story. […]
