Writer’s Block

      No Comments on Writer’s Block

It’s such a cliche, but damn, I sure am suffering from it. I know there are people out there who don’t “believe” in writer’s block, but I don’t have another word that works as well for how I feel. Because, to me, that’s what writer’s block is. A feeling of almost aversion to writing at all. It’s not that I… Read more »


      No Comments on Momentum

Writing is such a funny thing. I would bet that almost any writer would say that have times of inspiration.

      No Comments on Hello, Internet…

Not that I think anyone is interested, but more for my own benefit, I am starting a dedicated WRITING BLOG. Whee! Just another distraction from actually getting any writing done? Probably. But hopefully also an incentive to keep those creative juices flowing, to remind myself what I have accomplished and what more I will accomplish in the future. There are… Read more »
