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 […]

32. Building Habits

They say it takes 28 days to make a habit. I’ve tried that with running, and I’ve run consistently for several months straight, but then I loose interest or feel my time should be spent on something else I feel is more important, and I stop running for a while. I think instead of just […]

31. Venting

My vent for the last few months: I am just so frustrated. I want my experiments to work, but the majority fail. Yes, my Teazzed straw is awesome, but the project I have spent a little more than 4 years on still doesn’t work. I have a notebook filled with ideas and strategies on how […]
