A new kind of stability
It's been two and a half months since I've started at my new job. That, holidays, and other general worries had been tagging and dragging me slow. But I'm getting back on track. The past two weeks I've gotten back to writing, even if sometimes I'm strugglin...

Stumbling and Challenges.
So, I said several things that ended up not happening: I was going to try and have the entire month of November blogged ahead, and I was going to try to pull no NaNoWriMo. I ended up falling behind on both fronts because I've had some serious things change ...

No limits? No Thanks
Pulling another topic from my friends list, and it's something that feels like a sensitive subject: Unconditional Love. I have an opinion on it that's probably not commonly shared. I think it's either dangerous or a crock of shit. Boundaries are something t...

Day 2
900 words. It feels like a better day in general, and it was nice to be able to actually enjoy my coffee tonight.

Putting life on Hold
How the hell am I planning on doing NaNoWriMo? When this post goes live, I'll be one day into November and trying to climb the hill that is NaNoWriMo. It's not going to be my first attempt at this mountain; but I want to make it a successful one. That's goi...

NaNoWriMo Progress: Day 1
There may be better ways to start such a project: I ended up running out of my house this morning and forgetting my lunch. I was running around at work from the time I got there until I left 9 hours later. And I did it all on a handful of coffee cordials th...

It's Halloween! Happy Samhain to all of my pagan friends of that persuasion. I like wrapping myself up in a costume; it's fun to be able to escape into that other mode of self, where you aren't you: you're the party version of yourself, the version who's gi...
