Wuss zone by Kristin Is about to be 1 badass scramble. And realize the sunroof is open.

Writing 101: the space to write

for Day 6 (i know. that was a really long time ago), we were asked to describe the place where we write. i’m not quite done with it, but am at a place with my office make-over that i felt like it was finally ready to write this post and have some pictures to share!…

Writing 101: dear Lottery Gods . . .

dear Lottery Gods, we need to talk. i’m the truest of the true believers. a faithful participant in your rituals. a regular proselytizer, spreading your gospel. winning my fortune $1 at a time is just. not. cutting it. i want to know what more i need to do to receive the joy of your bounty….

Writing 101: coffee talk

if we were having coffee right now, i’d tell you how excited i am to be the only one awake in the house. i’d tell you it’s my very favorite time of day — when things are quiet and clean. it’s one of my very few windows of me time, so it’s a really perfect…

Writing 101: rules, schmules.

i’m late. i’m incomplete. i’m out of order. i didn’t follow directions. but i’m here. i haven’t done my assignment since last Friday. there were nosebleed seats to be sat in at a Falcons game (rise up!). there were reflections to capture for a blogiversary (happy, happy!). and there was some general re-arranging of life that necessitated…

i can’t believe it’s been an entire year since, following much deliberation and obsessing, finessing and freaking the fuck out, i quietly and haltingly, over several glasses of wine, took the password protection off this bad boy and unleashed it on the world. i was so nervous, y’all. what would anyone think? maybe no one…

navigating digital dependence: lost without my GPS

[tap, tap, tap] huh. what the . . . ?  [shake, shake] what’s wrong with this thing? hmpf. is it broken?  [holds map to ear, then looks at it again in disbelief.] i don’t get it. why isn’t the lady telling me where to turn? it’s been a long short week, y’all. that’s all i…

fall is for nesting: 3 home projects for the season

every year, when the calendar turns to September, my focus turns from working on my tan to working on my surroundings. i think there’s some primal instinct that kicks in and knows in a couple months, i’ll be spending much more time inside, so i better make my home someplace i’ll really enjoy being during…

a day late and a post short: 7 things i like about writing

i know i mentioned at the beginning of the month that i’m trying really hard to get back into the habit of writing more regularly. to that end, i signed up for The Daily Post’s Writing 101 workshop. each day for 4 weeks, there is an assignment “that warms up your writing muscles and helps…
