About the Blog

I’m eleven months into blogging and it’s been great! I had no idea I’d enjoy it as much as I do. It’s been a learning process for me since I knew nothing about it when I started. I started with the idea of doing a monthly theme where I’d pick one topic each month and do a weekly blog post that tied in with that topic each week. While the format has helped me to stay consistent, I feel like it has limited me as a writer. In addition, I’ve held back on a lot of different topics for fear of offending some of my readers or turning people off. This has also limited me as a writer. Therefore, going forward I’ve decided to switch things up a bit and turn it up a notch.

I’ve decided to start writing what I want, when I want. If I lose some readers or turn people off, well so be it. I might do a monthly theme sometimes, and sometimes I might not. I will just write about things as they come to me. So stay tuned and hopefully you’ll enjoy the new direction I’m going in. I certainly am 🙂 . Also, don’t forget to like, share, and comment! That is always appreciated.

“I have spent a good many years since–too many, I think–being ashamed about what I write. I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction or poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that’s all.”

– Stephen King

“We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing claims our world. It makes it directly and specifically our own. We should write because humans are spiritual beings and writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us both to our own insights and to a higher and deeper level of inner guidance.

We should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. Writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. We should write because writing is good for the soul. We should write because writing yields us a body of work, a felt path through the world we live in.

We should write, above all, because we are writers, whether we call ourselves that or not.”
