Coffee Dates: Writing Alone

Good Morning, Creatives! Sometimes I feel like I need a support group for introverts. Like, we can sit in a very small circle with only a few people who really understand us and say, “Hi, my name’s Abigail. Today an extrovert tried to sit down in my bubble and make small talk and I chose…

Headed For Home

I’m going to be honest with y’all. I’m writing this while we drive. I think we’re in Alabama right now. Somewhere near Birmingham, I think, although I am directionally challenged and it’s very possible that I’m wrong. Guys. Alabama is hot. Like, ridiculously hot. Like, if it wasn’t so beautiful I would never come here…

Coffee Dates: Overwriter

Good Morning, Creatives! Can I confess something to you guys? Like, heart-to-heart? Good. Because I’m going to anyway. I am a chronic overwriter. Are you shocked? You should be. It’s true. I have a serious problem. My poor, poor editor is constantly having to cut things back and tell me to rein it in a…

Coffee Dates: Houses

Good Morning, Creatives! Okay, all ya’ll are about to laugh at me. And not because I said all ya’ll. I’m allowed to say that because technically I was born in Texas and thus have the right to say ya’ll. And there are more than five of you, so it’s definitely all ya’ll. I know these…

Coffee Dates: Myers Briggs

Good Morning, Creatives! Does anyone else need caffeine this morning? I do. Maybe not a straight cup of coffee or espresso, but I would not say no to a few cups of black tea with a little cream and honey. Just to get my brain moving in the right direction. But! The weekend is near,…

Bullet Journaling

This week has been crazy. Between job interviews, work, implementing information and ideas from the conference I went to last weekend, Easter, sending a foster child to his forever family, and writing, I feel like I got a little swamped this week. In a good way. You can get swamped in a good way, right?…

A Gathering Of Souls

I went to a writing conference this weekend. The Young Women’s Writing Workshop, if we’re going to be technical about it. I’m just going to call it a gathering of souls. It was the best thing I’ve done for my writing and my soul all year. I think. I’ve done a lot of things for…

Cauliflower, Gordon Ramsay, and Hobbies

Guess what? I have a hobby. And it’s not writing. Shocker, right? Writing used to be my hobby, back when I was seventeen. I would spend all my extra time writing, and I never wanted to do anything else. I would get all my work done, and then go write and love every minute of…
