Writing Habit Help

I wish I hadn’t gotten out of the habit of writing every day. But, well, life happened. I got a job which became a career which quickly became a life that included responsibilities like car payments and mortgage payments and health insurance. Not to mention a wife and kid, followed by a divorce, health problems […]

Ambient Sci-Fi Sound

I love me some ambient, sci-fi atmosphere! For you poor souls who are regular readers know I am a little obsessed with science fiction. And, I also am on a constant quest for the perfect background sounds to keep me from cracking up in the silence, without getting to “into” what I’m listening to at […]

Neon Flames

It’s like finger-painting with stars. You know how there are all those studies that say coloring is good for adults? That it helps us manage stress and all that? Well, I believe them. I have found that a little bit of coloring really has taken the edge off for me. I’m not quite as convinced […]

Pretty Pictures

So, I’m not quite done with the photography links. Seriously, though, I’m working on some other things to share. I promise. Still, I have this one last thing from last month to share with you. We all like to look at beautiful things, right? And free things are great, too, aren’t they? What about free […]

Social Fixer

Fix your social media. I know my post for the past couple of weeks have been pretty random, but, hey, it’s the end of the year and I’ve been cleaning out old links. I’ve noticed since I’ve been mostly off of Facebook this year, I’ve been more relaxed.  My stress about the election, I think, […]

Another Year Older, And …

… hopefully wiser. But, who’s to say, really? I don’t think it’s an accident that my birthday fell on a Monday this year, because, I’ll tell you, it’s felt a little bit like a year of Mondays! Still, I’ve survived another lap around the Sun, and that’s something to celebrate, especially considering how close I’ve […]

The Most Common Bias

Cognitive bias is amazingly common, and keeping us from really changing our lives. One of the things I’ve noticed this year, as I have found myself arguing with people about politics and economics, is how much we are all effected by cognitive bias.  It’s that “gut feeling” that things are, or should be, a certain […]

It’s Not Magic

It’s an illusion! At least, that’s what Doug Henning would say. Hey, look, it’s been a rough month.  What with the elections, the holiday and NaNoWriMo, you’ve had a lot going on.  I mean, a lot. No matter who you wanted to win the Presidential Elections this year, the campaign has been brutal.  And, frankly, […]

The Inevitable Writer’s Block

If you’re participating in NaNoWriMo this month, you should be about two thirds done with your novel. If you’re not, don’t worry about it! And, either way, it seems like a good week to talk about writer’s block. Now, assuming that you’ve been writing this whole time, the most common forms of writer’s block, namely […]

Writers, Talking

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo this month, you should be roughly a third of the way through and might need a bit of a break. If you aren’t participating in National Novel Writing Month, that’s okay.  It’s still Friday and maybe you just need a break.  Either way, I think I’ve got you covered this week.  […]
