I’m Not A Word Count Writer

I’m Not A Word Count Writer

I wanted to be. I still do want to be. But the honest truth, y'all? I'm not. And it's not because I set unrealistic word count goals. At least, not anymore. I used to. But then I'd fall off the wagon a week in and I'd be running to catch up, only to be left in the...

Do I Still Love What I Do?

Do I Still Love What I Do?

In light of the last few days and the horrible loss of nine lives in the California mountains, the most well known being Kobe Bryant, many of us have been plunged into thinking, into wondering, into questioning whether we're living our lives to the fullest and doing...

I’m Still A Race Fan…

... Though you'd probably never know because I haven't talked about it in, well, all of last season and my driver won it all. He's the current Nascar champion. I didn't even watch most of the Nascar races last season. Why not? Why did I end up taking a nap during most...

I Didn’t Win NaNoWriMo, But…

...I did write throughout the month of November. And for the first time in all the years I've been doing NaNoWriMo, I am not beating myself up for not winning. I am not talking bad about myself to myself for not reaching 50,000 words. I started 3 different stories in...

Well, Bless Your Heart

Well, Bless Your Heart

I love those words. But it makes sense, doesn't it? I love them because I'm a Southern girl. Southern woman. I was born in the South and will likely die in the South... Unless, of course, I find out I'm a long lost relative of a Duke in England somewhere and I've been...

Slow Write

Slow Write

As I was thinking about what to title this post, the song Slow Ride by Foghat kept popping into my head for some reason, but the words kind of sounded the same and so, Slow Write became the title. The song starts out... Slow Ride, Take It Easy... And that's the...
