Some thoughts on writing

Life is getting in the way of my writing.  I tell myself it’s because I need to save my energy to focus on my romcom—one of three novel concepts that are consistently fighting for space in my mind stew—so that I can make a solid effort to actually accomplish a goal for once in my […]

Why I’m Starting Over Before I’m 30, Part 2 (I’m Done Wallowing)

Wallowing is the best thing I’ve ever done. It might sound selfish, but that’s only because it is. And it should be.

Finding My Bravery

Finding my bravery is an ongoing, evolving process, which can be difficult, emotional and downright messy. Today, it looks a little like sitting in a coffee shop, interacting with strangers.

Why I’m Starting Over Before I’m 30 (It’s the Responsible Thing to Do)

“Ugh, I hate my job.” — Everyone? At 28, I’m a newbie.

Blogging More Again

I’m so sorry to have left you with such an abrupt ending to my last post. I know you were shocked that I could write a post of such…normal length. Well, that’s part of the beauty of my resolution. When I came up with “blog more” as my entire NYR, I didn’t fully process the […]

Resolution Blog More

I’ve never really been one for New Year’s Resolutions, and as I discover more about myself I think I’m figuring out why: I have unrealistic expectations when I decide to make behavior changes. Mind-blowing, isn’t it? I’m sure nobody else ever saw that coming. My mom for sure will be flabbergasted when I bestow upon […]
