365 days of writing

January 1, 2017

It’s been years since I even touched this blog, but I have been thinking about it. With the events of this last year (historically and personally), I really want to get back to this, if for no other reason, to feed my soul.

Today, I came across a handwritten piece I wrote months ago – just a writing exercise, really. It was beautiful and inspiring to read something of my own that moved me. So my writing exercise for 2017 is to write on this blog every day. I have two major projects that I’ve been working on lately as well,  but those will not be an excuse. Even if whatever I write on this blog sucks on occasion, I am stating here and now that I will commit to a daily post in 2017.

Happy New Year! 🍾🍾🍾


I suck. I’m sorry.

I love that so many of you are persistently supportive and have asked me to move my ass already, and post a new piece.  I just wanted to let you know that it’s not that I don’t have plenty to say – it’s just that there’s plenty going on in my life – nothing so fascinating that you’ll hear about all of it anytime soon; just stuff that gets in the way of me really focusing on my craft.  The clouds are clearing, though, and I anticipate being able to knock something out very soon!  I realize that the whole “post-a-week” thing has been messed with over the last few months, but I figure if I hadn’t joined this challenge, I might not even have posted this many times by this time this year.  I continue to write regularly, but the prospect of publishing here every week continues to provide a veritable challenge to me.  Which I love.

Thanks again to everyone who is so supportive and fantastic – your kind words and regular commentary are appreciated more than you’ll ever know.  Cheers!

Love vs Hate: PostAWeek2011

March 3, 2011

This Post-A-Week challenge is kicking my ass.

I decided to participate in this challenge in order to force myself to write more often, and to activate a certain degree of accountability.  I already write in some form or another on a daily basis, but Post-A-Week requires me to “publish” something every week, to make at least some of my work available to the internet public regularly, no matter what.

I have to tell you that I despise publishing anything I’m not 200% happy with.  It absolutely kills me to release a piece that doesn’t meet my unequivocal approval.  Realistically, though, if I hold out and edit each post to death, I may as well forget “Post-A-Week” and find a “Post-Bi-Annually” challenge to participate in.  Read the rest of this entry »
