(new post) Steak and Potatoes| Writing Does That For Me. In this post, I kind of talk about my writing process, why I write, and use a very odd metaphor likening my end goals for writing to eating a meal of steak and potatoes. Favorite lines: "It’s worthwhile to be critical of yourself, to practice being a spectator of your thoughts and ideas and decide that rather than being “right” in your head, you just want to be close to “the truth,” or what really resonates in your heart." - read: http://www.jessicafhinton.com/2015/08/steak-potatoes-writing/

(new post) on living your own life, pursuing your dreams, and courageously asking "why not me?" #wordstoliveby  
I am returning from a very long vacation where I engaged in very little social media-ing. Usually when this happens, or when I don’t do social media for an extended amount of time and suddenly do social media, when I return this happens: I go on overload. Reading everything I think I’ve missed. Catching up on …

My latest on Washington Post's On Parenting, "What it means to be a sister" (here's a hint: it's not what I first imagined)

#writing, #siblings, #sisters
Relationships between sisters are not only usually the strongest in families, they’re also the most enduring and life changing.

(new post) Tell The Untold Story Inside You. A little bitty post about how I decide what to write and not to write for a public audience. This post was as much inspired by this quote by Maya Angelou as it was by questions I'm often asked by readers who have a desire to tell a story but don't because they are afraid of telling the story.

Writers: How do you know which stories to share and not share for a public audience? What are some topics that are off limits for you?

"You can’t confuse what you do in the service of ambition with what you do for love. I love my kid and she literally vomits all over me constantly and I don’t care. I love writing, too, and I’m sorry to admit that I was using it to selfish ends." - Fantastic essay from a writer who rediscovered her love for writing after failing after two books. Lots of lessons, advice, and good truth in here. - read: http://www.salon.com/2012/06/27/my_book_was_a_bad_idea/

(new post) Great love, great grief. From the post: "Where there is great love there is great grief. Yes. I believe in this. But as I was writing this, this morning I thought about all the ways that this isn’t always true. Sometimes within great grief there is great regret. Great regret of love unrealized. It’s a gift to know that you love someone when they’re alive. It’s a gift  to know this and live from that place. It’s a gift to love. And, perhaps, thinking more about it, it’s a gift to grieve even if you don’t really know if it’s love or regret that defines why you are crying." - read: http://www.jessicafhinton.com/2015/08/great-love-great-grief/

I love this post for so many reasons, but mostly because I think it's so well written and honest that it almost makes me cry. To young writers, middle writers, and old ones- these are words of wisdom for what's been, what is, and what can come for us all. #writing, #writers
