Last Week of School

  School is code for Day Job.   On Friday, I will be leaving my day job to pursue writing full-time.  

NotNowImWriting

In 2015, I started a blog called Not Now. I’m Writing.  As blogs go, it was successful.  I posted on it.  People read it.   I put the blog down when I got too busy to keep up with it.  I took on a day job while freelance writing and teaching yoga.     As I am itching my way out of the day … Read More NotNowImWriting

Getting Out

I am only a few days from beginning.   Two years ago (I think), I took a job that was not supposed to last two years.  I took a job, because I had taken a year off from “real work” to teach yoga and write full-time.  When money got tight, a friend recommended I work with her fixing computers. So, I did.   The small … Read More Getting Out

Camping In Early Spring

I enjoy camping.  I like waking up in a place that is not the usual.       This past weekend some family (observe picture of furry family member) and I went to Fall Creek Falls for a weekend camp.    

Last Year, I Started Freelancing

    In January of 2015, I made an online declaration that I was going to finally become a paid writer.  Many would argue that if you write then you are a writer.  I agree with this statement.  100%.  Knowing that I was writer was hard enough.  Getting brave enough to put myself out there so that I could eventually be hired was another. … Read More Last Year, I Started Freelancing

New Years

Once or twice a year, I create something I call a Mega List. This list replaces my New Year’s Resolution list and is much more malleable than resolution lists seem to be. The Mega List has Three Categories:  Feel, Do, and Goals This is how the categories break down: Feel – How do I want to feel? Do – What do I want to … Read More New Years

The 2016 Mega List

Daily Word Count: 422 Finding the discipline to sit down and just write is challenging.  I am typing those word reluctantly, because I like to think of myself as a disciplined person.  I do yoga for an hour six days a week.  This is outside of the classes that I teach.  I run three days a week.  I meditate for at least 10 minutes … Read More 422

First Writing Gig – Complete

I finished my first paid writing gig of 2015 tonight!  It felt great.  It still feels great. Daily Word Count:  356 this word count does not include this blog, because I felt like it would be padding results.  Padding results=not cool.

355: First Daily Word Count

Through the power of coffee, I have started my daily creative writing word count. Daily Creative Word Count:  355 I wanted to work one of my novels, but I sat down and started free writing.  I wrote a bad short piece (Obviously, it was short!  355, but they are mine!) about a newly appointed president storming into the oval office after oversleeping and finding … Read More 355: First Daily Word Count

This Year, I am a Writer

The best way to accomplish a goal in my experience is to hold yourself accountable.  Actually, it isn’t you that holds you accountable.  It is an army of friends and family that you enlist to hold you accountable no matter how many times you throw your hands in the air and say, “I’ll get to it someday,” and, “I’ve just been too busy.” Each … Read More This Year, I am a Writer

I have started writing four novels

I have never wanted to be anything other than a writer.  When I was little, I played “office” with my dolls which meant I was the boss to all of my stuffed animals.  Each and every one of them worked for me.  They were my editors, and I was the genius author. I wrote my first full-length (five pages) book at age five.  The title … Read More I have started writing four novels
