3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Committing to the Writer’s Life

I love being a writer. I love being a full-time writer, and I’m looking forward even more to being a full-time writer who is also a stay-at-home mum. That’s still a weird concept for me, by the way. Me, being a mum. Probably will have to get used to that at some point. Existential crisis … Continue reading 3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Committing to the Writer’s Life

Food Is Weird

Three months ago, I would have considered myself a foodie. I loved food. All kinds of food. Exotic, diverse foods. Every kind of food you can imagine. Except for fast food, obviously. If I’m going to waste the calories, I want it to be worth something.Anyway, that was three months ago. Now, I’m growing a … Continue reading Food Is Weird

If I Were A Pilot

If I were a pilot, I’d fly so very far. Probably to Malaysia, Or maybe Zanzibar. I’d take my plane above the clouds, As high as we could soar. Then drop down low so we could see, That strange and distant shore. I’d fly us to a jungle, And land among the trees, So we … Continue reading If I Were A Pilot

Writer/Director

I flew down to California a few weeks ago. Wait. Let me be more specific. A few weeks ago, I woke up at 2:30 AM and drove forty five minutes into town to the airport so that I could catch a 5:45 AM flight to Burbank, California. Then I got picked up at the airport … Continue reading Writer/Director

Perfectly Imperfect

I’m perfectly imperfect,And by that I mean to say,I’ve got a lovely golden star,For my awesome, faulty day.I gave myself a dozen points,And a silver crescent moon.For eating all my breakfast,And cleaning up my room.My dishes aren’t clean today,But I don’t feel so bad.My laundry’s in the washer,So I guess I’m pretty rad.I even called … Continue reading Perfectly Imperfect

Out to the Movies

My husband and I went out to a movie for Valentines Day this year. Now, before you tell me that sounds like a completely ordinary date, let me just explain. My husband and I have never been on a date to a movie before. Weird, right? We’ve been to one movie theater since we started … Continue reading Out to the Movies

Cluttered Life

Welcome to my cluttered life,Won’t you stay a while.There’s space between my endless tasks,My planner and my file.Welcome to my cluttered life,Ignore that pile of dreams.I’ll move aside the heap of goals,That’s tearing at my seams.Welcome to my cluttered life,I wish that you could stay.We’d have some tea and cakes and laughs,And in the sunshine … Continue reading Cluttered Life

Job VS Career

As many of you know, I left my full-time job in March of last year to start my own business.It was something of a daunting transition. Lots of panicky moments. I came up with a business name, we bought an airplane hanger, I packed up my desk. It was a whole thing. But since then, … Continue reading Job VS Career

Writing Poetry

I dislike admitting that there is a kind of writing I can’t do. I will freely admit that part of this—and only part—is a pride thing. I make my living off of writing, and I like to think that I can do most kinds well. The not-pride part of the annoyance stems from the fact … Continue reading Writing Poetry

Classes

Hey, remember how I disappeared for the last three months of 2021? Yeah, me too. I have a good reason, actually. See, besides working full time to get two scripts in before the end of the year, I was also in classes. Class? Classes? One class, stretching out over multiple weeks? Basically, the show runner … Continue reading Classes
