44. This is Halloween

Halloween 😊. A day where people dress up and eat candy and carve pumpkins and have a great time. Some people consider this day mostly to be propaganda to sell candy and Halloween decorations, but I it is so much more than that. I tend to think of Halloween as a time people wear masks. […]

43. Learning new things

I’ve been getting into Photoshop lately (as evidenced by some of the images in my book, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1), and I’ve been having fun adding more to my repertoire and messing around. So now I spend some of my limited free time creating art. My stuff isn’t Picasso level or anything, but I […]

42. What you mind sees and start of the Halloween sale!

Writing is kind of second nature to me. I really like doing it, and I consider it painting with words. When I read or write something a movie plays across my mind. Because of that, I can read pretty fast, as long as an image is forming for me. Now with technical stuff, I have […]

41. The whole story behind the quest of the dehumidifiers

Okay, the real story behind the three dehumidifiers mentioned in the previous post: this summer we got a lot of rain, making it humid outside the house, and that humidity built up all inside the house as well. And that humidity attracted tons and tons of centipedes. They covered the porches, coated the garage door, […]

40. The quest of dehumidifiers

Over the summer my husband decided that our house was too humid and bought a dehumidifier. He liked it; I didn’t care. Then he decided to get another one to get rid of all the leftover humidity. He liked it; I was mildly annoyed. Then he decided to get another one and move two of […]

39. A blurb on Writer’s block & more about the upcoming Halloween sale on Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1!

Sometimes things are just dead in the water for a writer. You might have a plan, but that day you brain is telling you to go take a hike. Writer’s block hits the best of us. For some people, they have a routine they get into, a setting that helps them relax and move their […]

38. Forgetfulness

Have you ever walked into a room and forgotten why you went in there? It could have been super important, but for some reason just slipped your mind. I absolutely hate it when that happens. The same thing happens to me if I don’t write something down. I might think in the moment, “I will […]

37. Organized Plant Chaos

My husband loves plants. He loves plants so much, that while I was at work one evening, he went and bought a ridiculous number of fruit trees that we ended up planting over the weekend. Then it was more fruit trees. Then it was more roses. Then it was blueberries and other fruit bushes. Then […]

36. It’s getting closer to Halloween–time to announce an upcoming sale!

Some writers write off on an outline. Some just think up an idea and go for it. Others like to write stuff on paper until an idea emerges. There is no wrong way to get started in writing. I like to do a combination of the above—if I have an idea I am having trouble […]

35. Failure is not the end

I think failure haunts everyone. It defines us; it shapes our lives; it makes us better. Some people look at failure as a roadblock, a stop sign to not go down that path anymore. I like to think of failure as an obstacle on an obstacle course. If you get through one, there are more […]
