Motivational Monday Poem: A Lonesome Path

An independent spirit journeying on With hope and passion as her guide Walking alone most of her life At a pace too clouded by dreams For any romantic partner to catch up My soul’s mate walks on His journey distant from mine Have our paths crossed Or veered in parallel for a stretch of timeContinue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: A Lonesome Path”

Library Graduate School: Art or Science

I am in arts-focused writer who entered into a science-based graduate program; a necessity to pursue a career in libraries or archival studies. Yet my love for those fields stems not from an intellectual, scientific mind but rather an artistic spirit who celebrates the art of language. I feel inspired, motivated, and energized when surroundedContinue reading “Library Graduate School: Art or Science”

Days 22 & 23 of the Love Write Now Pledge

LOVE LOVE LOVE Our world’s wounded in ways I can’t comprehend nor heal, and yet I yearn to help. What can one person do in the midst of so much chaos, hatred, and intolerance? Learn and love – that’s a perfect place for me to start. I do not claim to be a learned individualContinue reading “Days 22 & 23 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Days 19-21 of the Love Write Now Pledge

Unless I pull myself together and write roughly 1,500 words daily over the course of 37 days, I won’t reach my goal of a finished draft (second book) by April 1st. I don’t always see goals through to completion: it’s an issue I’m very much aware of. Why do I give up so easily? LackContinue reading “Days 19-21 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Days 17 & 18 of the Love Write Now Pledge

I’m more a Spring kind of girl, and yet, most of my creative inspiration this week has come from Winter’s beauty.

I’ve learned to be more present, awareContinue reading “Days 17 & 18 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 14 of the Love Write Now Pledge

For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with self-doubt and low self-esteem. I see a scarred woman in the mirror who’s pretty but not beautiful, artistic not talented, and content but not fulfilled. I see my beauty when I’m my most joyful and passionate; when I am in my element. my head, andContinue reading “Day 14 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 11 of the Love Write Now Pledge

Every now and again, when in need of a writing boost, I seek out the beauty of nature. Such was the case today! I found a bench near a nearby lake, gazed out on the frozen water, and felt refreshed. I wrote feverishly as seagulls squawked and the crisp wind blew, reminded that beauty existsContinue reading “Day 11 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 9 of the Love Write Now Pledge

Well, it happened – I fell asleep last night without posting a Day 9 update. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️😴 So today you’ll get two for one! I had almost the entire day to do as I wanted and yet I wrote absolutely nothing. Zilch. Nada. Squat. It wasn’t for a lack of trying. I opened the draft ofContinue reading “Day 9 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 7 of the Love Write Now Pledge

In today’s installment of celebrating that which I love, we’re traveling to Hollywood! Join me as I journey back to one of my favorite places on Earth. Stars fill the sidewalks and the skies in Los Angeles, CA – equally memorizing. I’ve gone on behind-the-scenes studio tours, stood alongside red carpet on film premiere events,Continue reading “Day 7 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 3 of the Love Write Now Pledge

Today marked a personal milestone worthy of celebration, and yet I didn’t quite feel like celebrating. On Feb 4th 2020, my debut novel (THE SPIRIT PROJECTOR) became available for purchase in print version. While online book retailers list the book’s publication date as Dec 2019, it wasn’t actually released until Feb 4th. Thus, I considerContinue reading “Day 3 of the Love Write Now Pledge”
