Mastering That Mental Game

I've been thinking a lot of fitness, lately. About the journey I've undergone in the past--what this November will mark--two years. I'm really proud of what I've accomplished and where I've come from, the habits that I've built (and almost always follow) and everything I've learned since I decided I wanted to take my health… Continue reading Mastering That Mental Game

Stealing The Caruso Editing Method

Last week, I mentioned that I'm going to try out a new editing method and I hinted that I might take a moment to describe it for you all. It's nothing new, per say. People have probably been editing using some variation of this method for years, but it's new for me and it was… Continue reading Stealing The Caruso Editing Method

Quest for Discovery: Week Twenty Six

Hello, friends! This post is coming a little late, thanks to having a sick day yesterday where I spent more time moving between the couch and the bathroom than I did doing anything else and all I wanted to do was anything but fight my body with whatever I ate the night before.

My Neglected Passions and Pursuits

This writing break has been surprisingly hard. I've finally figured out my writing routine, I think. I mean, it seems to be working, since I've written two first drafts this year when last year, I wrote none. There's a lot that times into that--including being in a better place, mentally, this year, as well as… Continue reading My Neglected Passions and Pursuits

Two Sides to Every Coin

This is what you get for wanting to write a blog post but then waiting a week and a half to write it: you lose the source of your inspiration and thus can't quote it when you need to. You see, I was reading...something (an article online, perhaps? maybe an interview?) where an author was… Continue reading Two Sides to Every Coin
