Road to recovery…in a writing sense. My creative output has sucked this last quarter. No other way to put it. It’s not that the I wasn’t willing or that I haven’t beaten myself up over it. Or tried to force my way through it. I have. And you know what? It’s still sucked. I’m behind […]
Many apologies for dropping off the face of the earth this week. If you follow my social media, you know I’ve been participating in a conference for my Day Job in New York State. I have met so many awesome people and animals. I’ve seen some amazing scenery. Done a lot. Seen a lot. Totally […]
This will come as a shock to NO ONE – but I have Journalist in my blood. I’m a WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, (especially) WHY person. It’s what drives me as a writer. It’s what gets me in trouble probably with my parents (when I was a wee one), teachers, and others along the way. […]
My Day Job Organization is in “Transition”. A lot of it. That’s what happens when executive leadership changes. No one knows what’s going to happen in the long run. This is also my last week of training for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt — then I have to complete my project (or find out if […]
Prompt: Magic Interferes with New Orleans Words: matriarch, throat, impossible, vinegar, apology, slice, microwave, raspberry, choose, snore Story Father Richard Leloup carefully placed the massive tome on his desk. The microwave dinged in the corner. He took out the bubbling cup of hot water and added the raspberry tea bag. He hoped it would help […]
I’ve been trying to figure out what to do about the blog today – since I’m at a work conference in San Antonio. There was a train of thought at one point, but that’s totally derailed. Puns totally intended. Discovered it takes extra-extrovertiness when you’re being all pleasant and networky with a group where you […]
This is an odd week. Not sure why. Just is. This time next week, I’ll be winding up a Day Job Conference in San Antonio – hopefully celebrating a successful co-presentation. This past weekend I attended DFWCon which is a writers’ CONFERENCE (not a convention – there’s quite the difference). I’m one of those “ambivert” […]
I’m having a “so much to do but no pressing deadlines so….” week with almost nothing to show for it. That has to change. There’s something to be said for “allergy season” and brain muddling, but that’s just an excuse, especially with how active the next four to six weeks are going to be. I […]
I’m in the process of getting my mind back in the game after my hiatus week. Well…HAH. Last week was “hiatus” solely because all brain power was focused on the Day Job. We had an issue where I finally got to put some of my new Public Information Officer training into practice while putting the […]
Obviously I didn’t post yesterday. It’s a crazy week at work. Training and event planning and stuff – the blog suffered. However… I did do a teensy bit of shopping at Half Price Books this past weekend and got adorable stuff I did not need but had to have.
How adorable is this? I love these tiny notebooks with amazing artwork. But what’s better? The backs! Check them out…
Seriously? How cute is this? I had to get both of them. The sticky on the notepads and flags could be stronger, but hey. It is what it is. Just join me in the AWWWWWW factor.
