Wow. What an incredibly crazy amount of stressful and restless and anxious days the past two point five weeks have brought to me and my family, my business, my sanity. This is the reason for the “few and far between” posts AND the reason I have not shared any new time-lapse excursions…
But, I feel a break coming…maybe in, like, um, two weeks. O.0
AND I still haven’t announced my announcement yet…
So, for today, I am sharing something I came across from my favorite Facebook page (Writer’s Write). I really enjoyed Reeding this list. I have quite a bit of these pulled together depending on which story I am writing about and which character is speaking. I never realized that I try to change my style per character.
I love learning about what kind of writer I am.Read More
Summer is here in T-minus one week. The summer solstice will bring about fun in the sun, bathing suits, the need for tans (in some cases such as my own), plenty of burns (again, in my case), water play, beach time, BBQs…or as Wikipedia says…
“The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star (sun) that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23° 26′. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.”
In honor of the wonderful season that is coming, I have taken new pictures of the incredible lake I am happy to live next to.
I didn’t touch up any of these pictures; they are exactly as they came into my iPhone. So beautiful…
Oh, and just letting everyone know: I have an announcement about writing. It’s coming soon.Read More
Together we boated from one side of the lake to the other. Then out into the sand we played…as the sun went down. This is what you get when you let them play and take advantage of the sun behind them.
Which is your favorite? I titled them all to make it easier for you to choose.
Samantha, Anastasia and some Kristopher at play.Read More
What whispers to you and excites you more than anything else?
Is it music?
Is it writing?
Is it reading?
What makes your emotions jump and swirl and move around as you listen, write, read, think, feel?
Is it sounds mixed together beautifully dancing across your ear drums? Serenading your inner thoughts of joy or even pain?Read More
I am not ready.
Huh. Not the best way to start a post about an upcoming painting, is it? ::giggles::
Well, it’s the truth. I have the canvass, the paint, and new brushes (ooo oo, yes new brushes! Story to follow…), but I am not ready to start this project yet. I know this painting will take longer than just one sitting. With so much moving around up and around my life, finding these multiple seatings won’t be the easiest thing to do.Read More
Copyblogger. Anyone? Anyone? I don’t know how many of you Reeders out there write professionally, but if you do, the Copyblogger daily newsletter is definitely a fantastic tool you should be receiving. Copyblogger writes about writing, but from a more professional, marketing perspective.
So why am I sharing it’s post from today? Today it actually talks about some tips for creative writing. There are some professional pieces at the end, but I am only sharing the Muse-Inspiring stuff…
Enjoy. And Reed.Read More
Originally I thought I may need to add in my own vote to break a tie. Then I thought I would add my own vote just because I wanted to be able to vote…But the winner was chosen for me.
The edge and texture may have made her the winner or it may have just been the image itself. Out of all of the images I chose, this would have been the one I voted on. There is so much personality and emotion in her eyes. But what she is saying…that is unknown.
Is she hiding?
Is she calling out?
Does she know something that others don’t?
