There are two things I’ve always dreamed of: to own my own bakery and to live happily ever after. Is that too much to ask? It is if you talk to my boss. She’s as tart as a lemon with a tongue like a meat cleaver.

Walking Away Getting Space from Your Work

Walk Away: Getting Space From Your Work

On nearly every project, every writer will reach a point where they want to rip their work to shreds and call it a day. It’s the nature of the beast. So what do we do when we get like this? How can we possibly find a way to pick back up and move forward when we are convinced our work is a steaming pile of cow dung? 

Two for ’22

I know I’m a little late on this one, but New Year’s resolutions aren’t my thing. I am a goal setter though. Here are my two main goals for 2022.
