Moving Along

It’s hard to believe March is almost over with. There again we’ve been waiting on spring for what feels like years. Maybe winter just likes our presence too much. Who knows. I’m ready for some mild temps at least. While the weather has been…

Write

Have you written a story that breathes? Have you ever written a story that bleeds? Have you ever written a story that comes out with ease? Have you ever had to cut a story from your soul? Have you ever had to throw it…

Daily

Wake up, Get Up. Bang My head against the Wall. Make bed with dog still in it, Lazy thing. Coffee, God I love you coffee. Take dog out, Walk all over no man’s land, Waiting, still no squat. Get chased by coyotes, Lovely and…

Goals for the New Year

First of all before you say “oh God she’s already beginning with the new year’s resolution crap”. We’re not starting that. No leave it at front door before you click on this blog post. This is not a post where I talk about making…

Life Stories 

So I’ve been thinking lately. It’s the holidays, it’s cold out and I need a healthy dose of humor. Therefore, I’m starting up another theme-esque exercise. Except it’s entirely different. Though I will get back to theme. Eventually. This new post happiness comes with…

Time Flies

It’s been a long 2017. It feels longer than usual for a year. Though maybe that’s just because of all the things that have happened. Thanksgiving is in two days. I haven’t said what I am thankful for yet. I’m going to say this, I…

Feedback

It’s always a bit scary to get feedback on your work. You tell yourself you are prepared for some criticism and then it comes. You can’t handle it. I hear of this happening to a lot of writers. That one bad review is the…

Bad Reviews

Bad reviews, they’re like alcohol. Read a review, you take a swig. The words, like bitter buzz in the mouth. Down the throat they burn. The words are fire, you don’t like them but you can’t stop them. The alcohol won’t kill you, but…

A New Dusk
