Me & Music (Morning People Pt. 7)

Eric Clapton and Wynonna. The Eagles and Tim McGraw. CCR & Cher. Growing up, my sister and I listened to classic rock with my dad and country with my mom (and sometimes we listened to the Disney soundtracks).

My Top Three Writing Excuses (Morning People Pt. 6)

Happy Tuesday! It’s been a couple days since I wrote (sorry, things have been busy) and I wanted to address the top three empty excuses I typically give for not writing: “I’m too busy” – Who isn’t?

Happy Saturday! Today is part five of my Morning People writing challenge and I have forty-one minutes before my noon cut-off time – so here it goes… The evolution of Saturday mornings.

Racing against the Clock (Morning People Pt. 4)

Today is part four of my Morning People writing challenge and I’m finding this month’s challenge to be quite challenging. See, I have a normal morning routine: I wake up and spend my first conscious hour of the day getting ready at a relatively leisurely pace.

Apple Cider Doughnuts & Sprinkle Cookies (Morning People Pt. 3)

Today is part three of my Morning People writing challenge. I missed yesterday morning (as I predicted, some mornings I simply would not have time to write), but I’m back now.

Tossing & Turning (Morning People Pt. 2)

Today is the second day of my Morning People writing challenge and I’m exhausted. I was going to write this post at 5:08am this morning, but I figured it would be more exciting to wait until I only had 47 minutes until noon. Today, in my exhausted state, I’m going to talk about the elusiveness… Continue reading Tossing & Turning (Morning People Pt. 2)

Good Morning! (Morning People Pt. 1)

Good Morning! Today is the first day of my Morning People writing challenge. The one and only rule for this month’s challenge is to write a blog post before noon. Now, because I am a realist, I understand that there may be some days where this is not possible, but I will try to write… Continue reading Good Morning! (Morning People Pt. 1)

The Sniffles (Writing is Hard Pt. 29)

Today is Day 29 of my 30-day writing challenge and I only have one day left! Today I am coming to you on the brink of a cold or a severe allergy attack; either way, I’ve been sneezing, sniffling and exhausted all day. I’ve been gulping down a gross, fizzy Airborne drink and eating Vitamin… Continue reading The Sniffles (Writing is Hard Pt. 29)

The Reasons Why I Write (Writing is Hard Pt. 28)

Today is Day 28 of my 30-day writing challenge and I’m cutting it pretty close (only 56 minutes left in the day!). Today (or, more accurately, tonight) I would like to focus on the reasons why I write, the reasons why I’m spending my time hunched over a screen instead of relaxing (or sleeping) right… Continue reading The Reasons Why I Write (Writing is Hard Pt. 28)
