My Husband Told Me To Make A Spreadsheet

8th October 2018

I’m sitting here drinking my cup of coffee, flipping through some purple-inked pages in an actual marble composition book, trying to blog my way out of an afternoon slump. Edit: It’s now actually 8.50 at night. Dinner, a webinar, and Roald Dahl happened before I could finish this post. Time is weird. Hi. Who’s (still) with me? If you’re interested, here’s my daily routine. For real. Get up, tell Isla that it’s too cold to wear a dress, suggest she…

My Writing Process: There’s An Octopus On My Ceiling

6th August 2018

And so, I’ve been thinking about giving you guys a peek into my writing process, but I don’t have one. Here’s yet another piece I wrote, a few weeks ago now, about not writing.  I’m re-posting it here, because I wrote it, and it’s the truth. July 26th, 2018. The day before yesterday, I stayed up til 1 a.m. to write and hit publish on a piece for the #30Posts30Days challenge. (On Medium. The challenge was started by Frank McKinley.)…

I’m Not Angry Enough

23rd July 2018

I had plans this weekend.  I was going to write at least 3 blog posts (I don’t usually write blog posts ahead of time but I’m realizing I need to start), read for 24in48 readathon and drink lots of coffee and cider. Isla was spending the weekend with the localist grandparents, and I was going to GET SHIT DONE. Because my time management sucks, I’ve read a grand total of 7 books this year, and I need to stop wasting…

Please Don’t Tell Me To Enjoy My Kid

18th July 2018

And so, a few days ago I was thinking about writing while eating a root beer Dum Dum lollipop. Thinking about writing is pretty much my natural state.  Working on, y’know, actually writing more.  Stick with me. The Dum Dum was a nostalgic addition courtesy of a recent care package from my mother.  It contains too many E numbers, and two handheld gamimg devices. Isla, at four, is apparently behind her peers in the use of gadgets  that are not…

Listen To Me Anyway

12th June 2018

A few months ago, I was on a self-care kick. I bought three mindfulness magazines made from recycled paper, and a candle that smells of books. This was it.  I was going to read through the magazines with the candle going.  I was going to learn how to relax, and maybe even get some sleep. And yet. The magazines sit unread in various corners and different piles.  The candle is still sealed. I’m still not sleeping, but that’s OK.  I’ve…
