If my real goal is to become a real writer, it’s time to sh*t or get off the pot. I need to either fully embrace all the activities that will help me achieve my goal or give it up. I’ve gone along with my half-assed plan for years and it’s gotten me nowhere except more… Continue reading 120 Days Until the End of 2018 & What that has to do with Writing
Normally I don’t promote what I’ve written for another website on Bloggoneit but this time I’m going to, and here’s why. I had a goal today of creating a blog post. One simple blog post. That was my writing goal. It seemed easy enough at 7 a.m. but I had the same goal yesterday and… Continue reading Taking Advice from Tom
Once upon a time, maybe last month, I wanted to be a prolific writer. I imagined sitting down every single day and spinning out word gold on my laptop. Look at me thinking that writing is easy–it’s not. Writing is hard! My biggest obstacle is my lack of follow-through and my incredibly low attention span. … Continue reading Medium Mastery: A Review at 24%
I’m not sure if anyone has noticed but I haven’t been writing much here lately. I started another blog which took up all of my time but not in the way one would think. I focused so much mental energy on that blog but I never felt like it was going anywhere because it wasn’t.… Continue reading How Badly Do I Want It?
Note: I was not paid for this post but my ticket to ShiftCon2018 will be comped in exchange for volunteering at the convention; however my opinions are my own. Nearly two years ago, I signed up to go to ShiftCon. I’m not sure why I did it. I think someone posted the information about ShiftCon… Continue reading #ShiftCon2018 is Coming & I’m GOING!
I’ve been sitting on my couch staring at a blinking cursor for a while now. I’ve been on Facebook four or five times, scrolling through Twitter far too many times to count, and have sipped several cups of coffee while the cursor consistently blinks in the background; these are the only words I’ve written in… Continue reading Childhood Fears Still With Me Sometimes
Obviously, I’ve completely fallen off the writing wagon and my excuse is getting old. I’m planning on continuing to blame Trump but then write anyway because I have to get back to something that brings me joy and keeps me productive. I’ve done a lot of work around the house but I’ve done no internal… Continue reading Writing in Circles
Pet-sitting is a peaceful and calming activity. Let me explain. When I am staying at another’s home with their pets, it’s not only quieter because I am not at my own home that is full of people, but my mind and thoughts are quieter. I relax into the nothingness that is expected of me–other than… Continue reading Pet-Sitting as My Muse
I tried so hard to write a love letter to myself, I really did, but the reality is I don’t love or respect myself right now and for many good reasons. I know this seems like such a cop out but I looked at this exercise from so many angles. I put on my thinking… Continue reading The Dog Ate My Homework
In this week’s version of 52 Weeks: 52 Ways to Love Your (Wild) Self, my homework was to find 15 minutes per day and use those minutes for myself in any way I choose. I could sit and stare off into space. I could exercise, daydream, take a very quick nap, escape to my room… Continue reading My 15 Minutes of Fame
