Always Three Seasons Ahead!

I get it. I understand that retailers need to promote holidays months ahead of time to try to make their nut during the season. But I feel as if putting out Christmas decorations before the end of September is a little extreme. Life moves fast enough without us wishing it away by trying to move …

Hey, You Never Know!

A few years ago, I posted about winning the lottery, or not winning. I still haven’t won. I can’t seem to even win another lotto ticket! Maybe it’s because I don’t play consistently, or maybe it’s because the universe knows I am okay without it. 😊 Still, I wish the universe didn’t have so much …

Dark Nights of the Soul

Even the most prolific writers out there must encounter the lulls in productivity, right? Surely, it is not just a new writer phenomenon.
