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

Saying Goodbye

We said goodbye to Mrs. Hudson yesterday. She was sixteen years old, which is pretty elderly for a cat. She’s been my old lady since I brought her home seven years ago, creeping around the house, hiding in my towel cupboard, and catching the mice that tried to invade my home. She drooled when she … Continue reading Saying Goodbye

Evernote

I spent the last week of 2021 organizing my entire life. Also battling Covid with hot ginger tea, Netflix, and NyQuil, but let’s not talk about that. Actually, let’s talk about that, really, really quick. First off, Covid sucks. For all of the reasons. Second, there are so many good shows on Netflix. Like, so … Continue reading Evernote

Breaking Ground

To celebrate 2022 arriving, I would like to take a moment to stop and appreciate the craziest purchase I made in 2021. Weird, right? Don’t worry. It gets weirder. Know why? In 2021, my husband and I bought . . . an aircraft hanger. Are you shocked? Horrified? Intrigued? So was I. What happened was … Continue reading Breaking Ground

Fall Festival

At the very beginning of autumn, while I was still locked up in my house because of allergies, I made a list of all the fun things I wanted to do as soon as I was released from my sneezy cage. I told you all about this, remember? We’re definitely skipping the bonfires this year, … Continue reading Fall Festival

Packing to Run

We had a fire in our valley last week. A big one. Really big. It was on the news. Unfortunately, Colorado is not a good place to have any kind of fire, thus the statewide fire bans that come into effect every single year. It’s very dry here. Dry grass, dry brush, dry pine needles. … Continue reading Packing to Run

A Day In The Life

I am a full-time writer. I’ve mentioned that about a million times on this blog, along with noting that I run my own business as a freelancer. But today, I’d like to dive a little deeper into what that looks like on a daily basis.I’ll give you a hint. I don’t actually spend my entire … Continue reading A Day In The Life

Welcoming Phoenix

This month, my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a road trip.We both love road trips. Yes, flying is easier, but when you miss all that beautiful country along the way? Totally not worth it. Especially when you’re traveling in Colorado. We drove down to Mesa Verde for the weekend, and the … Continue reading Welcoming Phoenix
