My Favorite Nutella Cookies... →
I’ve made these dozens of times and just can’t keep them a secret anymore. Kudos on this recipe. They are sinful!
Sick and Sulking...
I should have known. Getting up so early and running around so much over the past two weeks…I should have known I would get sick. Ugh! Adding insult to injury, I was so ill I had to go to the doctor on my daughters birthday. She didn’t complain a bit, but I am doing enough complaining for the two of us and using it as an excuse to continue birthday celebrations into next weekend. ...
Sleep. Not So Over-rated
For the second weekend in a row I had to be up at 4am to get ready for my daughter’s dance competition. Do you think I could sleep? Nope, not a single wink. I watched each hour roll by on the clock and grew more and more anxious with each passing moment. It’s now 4:16am. I gave up on sleep about 45 minutes ago when I realized I couldn’t even enjoy a full REM cycle even IF...
Do you ever have one of those days when you want to throw a good old tantrum? You know, the one that would make all two year olds jealous to their toes? Yeah…that is me today. If I could get away with throwing myself on the floor and wailing about…I would. My ears hurt…my throat hurts…I have a migraine…we have out of town guests and looming on the horizon for...
Why is it when I desperately want to write, I don’t have but a mere moment to scribble something down? The momentary scribble whets my appetite but fails miserably to quench my thirst.
I need to learn how to journal better. I feel insufficient when I scribble upon the pages of my Moleskine.
Pen, the writer’s brush, Paper, the writer’s canvas, Ink, the writer’s blood.
Neglectful, Awful, and Blocked...
So what happens when a writer gets writers block? I would hope they try to work through it, find inspiration and persevere. What did I do? I forced myself, at pen point, to finish my novel and ended up resenting it. Was it my writing decent? Maybe. Was it a good story? I hope so. The fact is I resented it. I had high hopes for my story, a part of me still does. Perhaps in the future,...
NaNoWriMo Word Count Day Two: 2,592
No, this isn’t the word count I was striving for, but it’s something. Life has yet to bend to my will and allow me uninterrupted writing time. Life didn’t get the memo apparently. Go figure. I have set aside some writing time tomorrow morning and hope by the end of the weekend to have my numbers above where they need to be. I would like to write more than needed each day...
And So It Begins...NaNoWriMo 2011
Really what more can I say about today? NaNoWriMo begins again and the insane reality of writing a novel in 30 days along with it. With each scribble across the page and tap of fingers across the keyboard we inch closer to the seemingly impossible feat which at this moment lays before us…a finished manuscript…a novel. I wish luck to anyone attempting this amazing literary feat and...
Creativity is the greatest rebellion in... →
This is one of the things the kids and I did today during #homeschool. It was an experiment/craft about melting points.
