The Voice of Procrastination

Today (and on other Saturdays) I update American Catseye and Forfeit Island, two of my shorter pieces. And I haven’t gotten around to completing those writing tasks yet. I’ve had Saturdays where I add to both projects in under 500 words. So I’m not sure why I procrastinate them. Maybe it has to do with the fact it’s a … Read moreThe Voice of Procrastination

Interview with Myself

One of the ways I like to free write myself towards answers is the self-inflicted interview—probing thoughts beneath the surface by directing my curiosity inward, rather than impose a sense of wonder solely on the external world. I haven’t done a self-inflicted interview in some time. Let’s see where it goes. Every conversation needs a … Read moreInterview with Myself

August Projects

Lately I’ve been editing more, considering the accessibility of my writing, trying to simplify. This is why I haven’t posted updates about new content every day, as I did before. I may switch to just documenting my updates weekly; that’ll be much more manageable, and give me space to consistently reflect on successes and failures … Read moreAugust Projects

Joyful & Veerful

I veered off track from the prewriting and update buttons I made with WordSwag on Monday because I needed to chase down some big ideas that crept up on me: Rewriting an Idea, where I plan how to focus on Emergence No. 7 by finishing a first draft; then rewriting for accessibility; Zeros & Ones, the fourteenth … Read moreJoyful & Veerful

Celebrating the Beginning of July

On July 1st, I added to three of my Wattpad projects, including the arduous task of one-sentence synopsi in the comments section of each chapter (and technically, I also worked on this for a good part of July 2nd, but when I’m having an insomniac writing binge, relative things like time fly out the window); … Read moreCelebrating the Beginning of July

Today’s Blog, Social Media, & Wattpad Updates

Today started with gardening—a lot of gardening. We were out there for two plus hours, pruning and fine-tuning plants. I’m going to write more about it on My Quest for Chicken next week, after I have a chance to see what lives and dies. Suspenseful! I also cleaned Peri’s 5g minibow today. Yesterday, Chase and I teamed … Read moreToday’s Blog, Social Media, & Wattpad Updates

Today’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

Today I challenged myself to update as many of my online portals as possible, without cutting out the prewriting phase of any project. It was a fun workday challenge, and it took me above-and-beyond my 3K word count daily goal. Here’s what I came up with: Wyvia I’m updating my wedding blog daily right now, … Read moreToday’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

3×3 Blogosphere Formula

Lately I’ve tried to give my intuition more agency. While slices of our society argue gut reactions are more of a primal response,—and therefore, inferior to the rationale of an intellectual, mammalian-brain response—lately I’ve questioned the validity of this point of view; I’m uncertain if evolution intended for us to abandon our reptilian, unconscious responses … Read more3×3 Blogosphere Formula

Formulaic Writing

I use formulas for my writing. Once I find a healthy formula, I stretch it around, changing a variable here; doubling a variable there. Think of it like wrapping your hands in tight gloves, then wriggling your fingers—looking for the tension in the fabric. This is what my brain likes to do. While this is … Read moreFormulaic Writing
