Patterns

Patterns

Sometimes the simple tricks are the most helpful. Here's a little background to help explain what I mean by that. Back when I worked as a writing consultant at IPFW, I was taught several tricks for catching mistakes in a paper.


Why I Write

Why I Write

I write because I enjoy it…well, most of the time anyway. Every now and again I hit a road block and I find myself stuck. The best way to move past it, I’ve found, is to keep writing. Usually I turn my focus to a different piece. That helps trick me into writing again and to enjoy it too.


Positivity Camp Part I

Positivity Camp

I started working on a short story that I wanted to share here, but it’s turning into something else. As a writer, I feel this often happens; I start out with an idea and it branches off into something beyond the original scope of my vision. Well, that happened this time, too! What started out as a simple story about a strange camp turned into more of a social commentary.


Rainy Days

Rainy Days

Rainy days can drain my energy levels faster than bad news or a failed project. Now, this is not to be confused with stormy days. Those days are just awesome! I might struggle to focus on stormy days, but at least my energy levels are just fine!


Working from Home

Working from Home

Working from home isn’t easy; however, once you set up a good routine, it can become easier. The key is to avoid distractions. For me, it’s my phone and the internet. I can be lost on Facebook for hours if I’m not careful! Pinterest is another black hole that steals the time away.
