Why I start my New Year Resolutions in December.

  The end of 2016 is coming near, and so is this month of November. Yes, this word count is going towards NaNoWriMo's 50,000 goal.  When 2017 begins in 35 days and counting, I will have already tested out my resolutions. This idea came to me about two years ago, when I was struggling with …

Month of Musicianship and the role of Music in my Life.

The holiday season has begun, and the Starbucks I am at is playing Cheese Cake by Dexter Gordon.   My relationship with music goes back to the Spring of 2005. My Father was a rude and crass man; he refused to let me join band. To the point, where he tore up my letter of "acceptance" …

Tiny things for a tiny Eco-friendly home

Personally, I despise it when people don't think about the harm we've traced on the environment as humans. And this is where I got the idea behind my NaNoWriMo novel, for all you people who are spitting out words like me this month. Some towns don't have recycling programs, and for those who do, certain …

Wednesday’s Writings: Tilt Feature!

Day two of National Novel Writing Month, and I've had a iced green tea, iced caramel macchiato, a iced mocha at home, and 16 cups of water over the past two days. Last night, I made homemade pizza, which was was easy, since the crust was already made. I've also snacked on lots of post-Halloween …

The Lost Art of Pen-Paling

In the art of digital life, receiving mail is a positive and and a negative. Digital or physical. Whenever you get a letter from that 501-c Charity about renewing your quarterly donation, some people give the money, or shred the letter. When "junk mail" comes into my mail box, whether digital or physical, it always …

One Week till NaNoWriMo: What’s going on in my Prep world.

I didn't start prep work truly until the 15th. I had ideas running through my head in September and October, and really began to hustle out the notes for the past two weeks.  Its been fun, actually. This time, I am focusing less om the story line to research, and more on setting and the …

Gardener’s Lifestyle

Originally, I posted this on another blog I was test running for five dollars, but realized I had it made better here on WordPress. So, I moved the article over here for some good fun and reading for those who love to garden! Good afternoon!       Settling into my rental home, I am …

Counting down to NaNoWriMo

What is the drawl to this month? Why am I participating again? What about the "What Now?" months. All these questions and more are getting tackled on a Monday afternoon.   I've known about National  Novel Writing Month since 2013. I never really participated until November 2015, and it took some motivation to do so. …

Fall is here, which means time to prepare for the Spring!

This is my third year to garden, and I still haven't learned everything yet. I didn't officially start until the Spring of 2013, and this is the first year where I am actually doing Spring preparation during the Fall and Winter. That's because I've usually lived in a apartment, where all I've had were potted …
