Total Concentration...

Hellloooo, where are you? The last week or so, my brain has not been kind to my writing. Usually they are best buds, but I don't know, it feels like something's been unplugged. How can I write 10,000+ words one weekend and suffer from a complete brain fart the next? *sigh*

Winter Blahs

Snow, it's time you and I had a talk. You're cold. I admit sometimes I like to watch you fall--it's peaceful and serene and yes, beautiful. It's fine on a Saturday night, but why, oh why do you drop by on  Tuesday morning? I grab my shovel and attack but you're falling so fast you've covered all my tracks.  My car does not like to drive on you, either; he's a beast, but when he's with you he loses control and then I am late for work. I think it's time we parted. It's been days and you're still here, turning gray and ugly but hanging around like an unwanted guest. Why won't you melt?

Lucky Thirteen?

Hello internets! It's been far too long and already it's a new year, so let's talk resolutions. Frankly, I don't believe in them. (HA!) To me, the word 'resolution' adds the burden of expectation, which inevitably will be followed by disappointment when I don't live up to it. Instead, I'm looking for a new beginning. New goals. The last couple years have been a personal trial, but if anything it's made my resolve stronger, it's changed my outlook, forced me to take stock of what I have and work with it. That's what happens if it doesn't kill you first, right?

Edit: With the new blog design, I am going back and publishing some saved yet unpublished posts
