Midway Point #IWSG

It’s the first and the first Wednesday of the month, making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day! Strangely, I’m not insecure. When I started this year, I had high aspirations. I’d stick to intermittent fasting, I’d get regular exercise, and I’d finally finish all my book 2 revisions. Thanks coronavirus. You really screwed up my…

Small Successes

Every year, we have the Colonel’s Challenge at work. It’s a exercise challenge spanning 10 weeks that includes resistance, aerobic, push-ups/sit-ups, and weight loss. In previous years, I focused on weight lifting routines and running with my sis-in-law to reach the goals. This year marks a shift in my priorities, abandoning any sort of predetermined…

Radio Silence and the Ever-Busy Squirrel #Life

In December, my webhost migrated my account to a different server. Since then, I’ve discovered emails from my website no longer work. I’ve contacted them and, after troubleshooting, they suggest reinstalling WordPress without any plug-ins to see if it’s a problem with my installation or if there’s something else. I haven’t gotten around to that…

What Happened To This Year? #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. What has me insecure? Not Finishing. One of my goals this year was to be done with Isto, the second book in my epic fantasy series. You’d think this would be an easy task, considering I’d finished the first draft early…

If I Can’t Write… #Art

I mentioned last week that I haven’t gotten a lot of writing done. I can’t bring myself to write when others are around (for one, I get distracted and all I type is gibberish, and for another, I feel compelled not to ignore my family). That might mistakenly lead to the conclusion that I don’t…

Round 3… Fight!

I wish I could say my life has improved since my last check in. Alas, that isn’t the case. Back on Sept 25th, my son was on antibiotics for strep throat. A day after he finished that 7 day treatment, he whined that his throat hurt. I went and got him checked. Sure enough, he…

Oh Look, A Blog Post!

This past month has seen me slipping and spiraling. I’ve neglected my yard, forgotten friends’ birthday parties, and dropped all the balls that I might’ve had in the air. As my kids return to school, I’ve found myself shifting schedules to accommodate child care while trying to manage meetings and appointments and still be a…
