It’s been a while since I last touched base—longer than I intended. As I stated in my Finish the Race post, November is a terrible month for me to do a writing challenge—last year even more so. December wasn’t much better with on and off illnesses in the family, end-of-the-year events for every extra-curricular activity, and Christmas prep. I had hopes that come January, I’d be ready to start fresh and hit the ground running, but one word put a stop to that—biopsy.Continue reading
NaNoWriMo began at a snail’s pace for me, and I’m already a slow AF writer. I swear, November is the worst month for me to have this challenge—it’s short, there’s Thanksgiving to prepare for, and I have to create the picture calendar for the next year (in order for it to arrive in time for Christmas). And this year is even more congested than normal.Continue reading
NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow, and it both excites me and sends my anxiety soaring through the roof.
For those who don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s where writers join in for a common goal: to write a 50,000-word novel in the month of November. It sounds like a lot, but don’t let it discourage you.Continue reading
Procrastination. It’s a word I hate, yet at times can’t seem to avoid. It’s not like the task is going to magically get done or go away, so why not just bite the bullet and get it done? Ah, that would be the logical answer, but procrastination rarely resides in the rational area of the brain…at least for me.Continue reading
Last year, Thomas and I went on an adventure that I never thought would happen—we moved cross-country. I moved to Texas days before I turned eleven, and from the moment I got there, I hated it. You’re probably asking why I didn’t get out sooner. The answer is simple…I was trapped.Continue reading
Wow! After a two-year hiatus, I’m back. I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen. A lot was happening at the end of 2021, and burnout came storming in.Continue reading
A Knight’s Tale is an awesome movie on so many levels. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, I highly recommend you do. It’s about a peasant who strives to become a knight. There’s only one problem: in order to become a knight, one must be of noble birth. One of the big questions throughout the movie is whether or not someone can change their stars, basically do the impossible. But that theme doesn’t end with the movie; it also applies to us.
Being that yesterday was my birthday, it seems like an appropriate time to share this next fun fact. My mother-in-law, and I have the same birthday. Yes, you read that right—we are exactly thirty years apart to the day. The running joke is Thomas better leave town if he ever forgets August 12th because he’ll be in the doghouse with both his wife and his mother. LOL!
*Sigh* It’s been a while since I’ve made a Fun Fact Friday post. One reason is because there’s a lot going on in my head, and forming a coherent string of thoughts for a blogpost feels exhausting. Another reason is the challenge of coming up with something people might find interesting, lol, but I think today I’ve got one.
