Thanks for being my guinea pigs

I forgot what a blog was about. It’s about sharing stuff. “Writing it out,” so we can be more whole. Me. So I can be more whole.   This is totally a space (safe space?) where I can test out new ideas. Hopefully, you all will tell me what you think and add to the…

Why Writer’s Block is Bullshit

  Write about your struggles. Because if you can’t write, you’re struggling.   And it’s probably not something pretty, either. You’re not writing about IT because you don’t want to face IT. And, yet… that is the key to the door that you’ve been hanging around, pacing, for what seems like forever-and-a-half. It doesn’t mean…
