NaNoWriMo: How I Did It

November’s almost here. Which means it’s almost my birthday. It also means we are approaching National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I took on the November NaNoWriMo Challenge in 2013 but I never blogged about it. Probably because I was busy writing a novel, and growing a human, so by December, I was too tapped out […]

Musings on Motherhood, Guilt, and Creativity

I struggle with guilt. When I feel burnt out on being a stay at home mom (which happens at least once a day), I remember these years in my kids’ lives are short, that I am so lucky to have the option to stay home and that I am free to work on my writing […]

My Story + British Accent = Awesome

It was super exciting when I found out my my flash fiction piece, “A Gorgeous Day to Fly” made the Mash Stories competition short list. If that weren’t enough to make all the happy neurons in my brain dance a jig, a professional narrator read it in a British accent for the Mash Stories podcast!  If […]

I went to a writing workshop this weekend called “Fast and Focused Writing With Lori DeBoer.” Lori DeBoer is a local writer and writing coach. I had been to one of her workshops previously and I liked it, so I thought, “What the heck?” I could stand to be a lot faster and more focused […]

How My Home Birth Book Was Conceived

So, last week I told you I am (gulp) working on a book. I know, right? [Clears throat. Attempts to evoke confident tone] I’m writing a book. In January, my friend and I talked each other into taking this online class that coaches you through the steps of writing and publishing a book, and within […]

You Can Go Away Now, Impostor Syndrome

Catching up on the phone with my best friend on the phone other day, I told her, “I’m writing a book… I’m kind of embarrassed to tell you that. I feel like such a fraud. But you’ve known me forever so I can tell you.” Dear old friend that she is, she told me “Of […]

The most meaningful 800 words I’ve written

I alluded to the article I wrote for Colorado Runner Magazine a couple of posts ago, and I think we need to come back to that. I am excited about it not just because it’s a thrill to see my name in print. And not just because I got paid to do something I love […]

What Women Don’t Want You To Know About Writing Groups

I finally got around to organizing a writing group. I’ve only been meaning to do this for… oh, I don’t know say, ever? Just like the hardest part of a run is tying your shoes, the hardest part of getting it going was.. getting it going. But get it going we did. Between bites of […]

I got nothing

This is what I came up with when doing a writing exercise I found online where they ask you to start with “I remember…” This is how bad things have gotten here, folks. I am consulting Google to find things to write about.I remember when I would write something just for the hell of it […]
