Why I Write

Why I Write

I write because I enjoy it…well, most of the time anyway. Every now and again I hit a road block and I find myself stuck. The best way to move past it, I’ve found, is to keep writing. Usually I turn my focus to a different piece. That helps trick me into writing again and to enjoy it too.


Positivity Camp Part I

Positivity Camp

I started working on a short story that I wanted to share here, but it’s turning into something else. As a writer, I feel this often happens; I start out with an idea and it branches off into something beyond the original scope of my vision. Well, that happened this time, too! What started out as a simple story about a strange camp turned into more of a social commentary.


Rainy Days

Rainy Days

Rainy days can drain my energy levels faster than bad news or a failed project. Now, this is not to be confused with stormy days. Those days are just awesome! I might struggle to focus on stormy days, but at least my energy levels are just fine!


Working from Home

Working from Home

Working from home isn’t easy; however, once you set up a good routine, it can become easier. The key is to avoid distractions. For me, it’s my phone and the internet. I can be lost on Facebook for hours if I’m not careful! Pinterest is another black hole that steals the time away.


Staying Motivated

Staying Motivated

Whether it’s career based or simply a hobby, being an artist is not easy. As an artist, I used to struggle keeping up on my crafting and my writing, and that was before I had the added difficulty of trying to work from home.

If you’re an artist, you likely know the routine. You come home from a day of work and you want to relax, not spend hours hunched over a craft table or a keyboard. And if you finally get a day off…HA! Forget it because there are too many chores to do or errands to run or friends to see or relaxation to catch up on.
