Supporting Actively

It’s a rather grey, cloudy day here in New Hampshire. I can see some bright blue sky peeking through here and there, but for the most part everything feels soft and drowsy. I don’t entirely mind – I’ve got a cup of hot Earl Grey, I’m listening to some quiet jazz, and I’m pondering where… Continue reading Supporting Actively

100 Day Project 2018

Hello dear readers, Katie here. Have you heard of the 100 Day Project? It’s a fantastic project sort of like National Novel Writing Month, but for artists and creative-types, and over the course of 100 days starting in April instead of just the one month of November.

Barely Contained Mayhem

Hey Readers, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Sorry about that. Been dealing with a few setbacks, both minor and less minor.

On Critiquing and Kindness

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

Busyness & Creative Projects

Hey all! Things have been pretty darn crazy around here! I feel like I haven’t had a weekend in a couple weeks, and this coming weekend is more craziness. It’s all been fun with dear friends, but for an introvert like myself, I NEED some quiet down time where I don’t have to interact with… Continue reading Busyness & Creative Projects
