The Lost Art of Letter Writing

In recent years, I have made the move back to paper. I have planners to keep track of my day to day life, my work schedule, major projects, web analytics, training and education, my photography business, all of the things that make up my life, I keep on paper. In fact, I have a whole…

My Writing Space.

Separate to this post, we are also asked to ask YOU for ideas on what to write about. So tell me? What would you like me to write about? Any particular genre or style or topic? Right now, I’m typing this at my desk, in my home office. This hasn’t been my “normal” writing space…

We Were Together.

We were together. I forget the rest. -Walt Whitman   She lay awake. It was too early for sleep and her body knew that. Betraying her brain. She was bone tired. Turning off the television, she let the remote fall to the floor, thinking she would probably step on it in the morning. As she…

What Have I Learned?

I feel like I am constantly learning. Which is a very good thing. I recently transitioned careers and so I am learning something new almost every day. It’s tiring, for sure, but it’s also amazing and rewarding and inspiring. So today I’m tasked with writing a list of the things I’ve learned. First up, how…

Why Do I Write?

Ultimately, I write in order to connect with people. I wouldn’t have said that a few years ago – I would have said that I write for myself or because I have to get the words out. But that’s not true. It’s not the driving force (well sometimes it is). The main driving force is…

My happy little corner of the world.

For this week’s Daily Posy Weekly Photo Challenge – Corner – we are invited to share a corner that speaks to us.  This is my happy little corner of the world. My desk at home. The place where I plan (did I mention I’m a #plannergirl?), I write, I edit photos and I just be. This…
