Some days it is too hard to be superman. It’s too hard to even be Han Solo, or Batman, or Iron Man.  Maybe you’ll be okay with being a sidekick, like Pepper Potts, or Robin.  You might even settle for getting through the day without the feeling you’ve gone FUBAR.  It’s too hard to think …
There isn’t a challenge where you simply go and start typing.  There are emotions upon emotions that factor into the idea of getting back into your writing.  This is especially true when you have stopped for a long while.  All those lovely blank journals you bought when you were writing that are, sadly, still blank. …
New Year and new goals, and back to the same old grind.  You can’t be the hero or a new person, but you can be yourself, because it’s only one day. Why I stopped writing- for a time.  This might be the better blog post title, but I did in fact take pretty much all …

It’s all fun and games until someone says you are doing what you love for a hobby, or something that you won’t make money or you should find yourself a “real” job.  Believe me, I’ve heard it all before.  I’ve heard that when I write I take everything and put it out there, but I’ve …
The last few months have been hard on me.  Not only as a writer, but as a person.  One can argue that change is a good thing, but when it comes to hating the very things you loved, you have to rethink your own values and thought. Are you a joy filled writer? Now, I’m …
