Getting Ready to Write

Preptober begins tomorrow and many fingers will start to tap the keys in fury because they want to finish that novel they’ve been working on for months. Are you joining all the writers who participate this year? I said I might not have time because of the art events I’m in for the next fewContinue reading “Getting Ready to Write”

Pre-Preptober

We are one day away from the end of the month and I’m sharing a sneak peak into next month. Since the goal of the next few months is to get everyone writing instead of reading, my posts will be short and sweet. I’ve been pre-prepping a list to help get you ready to writeContinue reading “Pre-Preptober”

Season of Changes

I was driving down the highway and over the Minnesota River when I looked over the side the bridge at the golden and light orange colors of the trees. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve lived up North, the changing of the leaves always catches me by surprise. This is the time of year whenContinue reading “Season of Changes”

Prompt Day

Spinning off of yesterday’s post, I think it’s time we revisit our words. Do you find yourself typing away like a machine at times? Do your words feel mechanical? I think it’s time to visit the flow of what we put on paper. The rhythm of words can change how you feel. After I readContinue reading “Prompt Day”

Skip Day

Last Friday, I had a skip day because I was shivering under the covers. My body always disagrees with the changing of the seasons and I usually end up with something. Frankly, I wish it would get over this kind of change but it might just be the way I’m built. Vitamins, teas, and otherContinue reading “Skip Day”

Pastry Run

Have you ever been woken up by being licked in the face by something warm and furry early in the morning? Well, I don’t have that. I have a husband. Why he suddenly decided that making an early morning pastry run at 7:30 on the day I like to sleep in was a good idea,Continue reading “Pastry Run”

Seller Frustration

Last night my life turned into a TikTok because of an update on Etsy. All that was required was an update to my seller information and an update to my bank account. I thought this was only going to take 15 minutes but I was locked out of my frozen account. Nothing was going inContinue reading “Seller Frustration”

Humpday!

This week I opened the door and woke up to a world that belonged in Halloween land. The fog had rolled in and I couldn’t see more than a few houses down. I imagined what would happen if Mother Nature decided to indulge our fantasy worlds and Halloween turned foggy. Taking the every day worldContinue reading “Humpday!”

Moonlighting

This year has been an exploration of events and new kinds of medium but I feel like I’ve been moonlighting as a writer in the middle of the night. Balancing everything I love to do is more like a pendulum swing. I teeter back and forth. Maybe my rhythm is winter for writing under theContinue reading “Moonlighting”

Creative Support

This Saturday we had one more day of summer weather at our first Kimchee Festival hosted by Adoptee Hub in Minnesota. The morning started out with some rain showers and confusion due to double booking of a soccer field. My husband and I showed up early to find the soccer field filled with high schoolContinue reading “Creative Support”

Pre-planning

One day to showtime again. Tomorrow my belly bottom will be filled with fermented kimchi as we head to a festival for kimchi making in Minnesota. I’ll be surrounded with familiar faces and people who love the same kind of food for me. My husband and I will be one of a few vendors whoContinue reading “Pre-planning”

Slowing Down

Yesterday my body decided it needed a break and I had to take a few hours rest. My fingers wouldn’t type and my brain turned into a fog. I went too many hours without sleep in the past few weeks and I finally had to stop everything. My plan to have rest days during theContinue reading “Slowing Down”
