Hey, folks! Today I’d like to share with you a revelation I’ve had recently. Writing is hard! What the heck! When I was younger, stories and ideas came as easily to me as breathing. I wrote all the time, going through multitudes of college-ruled notebooks. Granted, I rarely finished these stories. I wrote down just… Continue reading Writing is…hard??
Good morning, dear readers! I can’t remember if I’ve written on this before, but I’m going to do it anyway! I think a lot about the balance of critique versus kindness, both in my job as an academic advisor for adult learners and in my interactions with other creative friends, most namely, my husby and… Continue reading On Critiquing and Kindness
Hey Readers! It can be tough getting back into the swing of things when you’ve been out of it for a few weeks. I’ll admit, it took some mental effort to sit down and write this. In my defense, I’ve been up since 4:45, and it’s now 9:20 pm. That said, I want to make… Continue reading On Being Vulnerable

Hello Dear Readers! Instead of waxing poetic about responsibilities and promises and all that stuff you’re used to from me, I’m actually going to talk about something concrete! …Don’t get used to it. So recently my schedule at work changed from being three long shifts each week (13-19 hours apiece) to two long shifts and… Continue reading AN ACTUAL UPDATE!!!
Hello dear readers! It has been very exciting around here lately. Aiden and I have been taking a look at all our various projects (and boy howdy have we come up with a lot of projects) and trying to sort out how we should tackle them all. Some things have had to be shelved, while… Continue reading So Many Projects, So Little Time!
It’s tough to find the balance between dreams and reality. We want to pursue lives that allow us to make a living doing what we’re passionate about, but we’ve all got bills to pay, we all need places to live, and we all need to eat. Is it worth the financial risk to try making… Continue reading The Eternal Struggle of Creative-Types
