I think I'm going to need a new tag for my blog. This one will be called, "lessons to remember." Yes, a great note to myself. And why do I come to this decision? Because I had a realization I know I've had before: that I need to draw more. Okay, it actually is a … Continue reading Devil in the details

Every day better
I began setting up my tracking spreadsheet last night. Still trying to get used to it. Still have a lot of work to do, but at least it's a start. I feel like I've learned a lot today and gotten a lot done, even though it's just been in small segments. But that's the plan, … Continue reading Every day better
A second time
Earlier this evening, I had started another blog post that was supposed to go up tonight. But then I fed the pets for a second time and I washed dishes for the second time, and while doing that I knew I'd be writing a blog post for the second time. I drew the line at … Continue reading A second time
Adding more daily tasks
I finished two more ACEO's today. Which is good because I have to replace ACEO's which sold. I've been watching quite a few paintings and drawing tutorials lately. Drawing is really something else I need to start doing every day. My art teacher, the woman who changed my life, said that drawing for 15 minutes … Continue reading Adding more daily tasks
Writing Fenrir's Tales have been a good exercise for me. I'm glad I started them. While most of them are told from Fenrir's point of view, I've done a couple in different voices. So why do I think this has been so good for me? Yesterday while I was working away on the 9th Loki … Continue reading Fenrir Tales
Well, the soreness from weeding my garden yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I woke up stiff and sore, but I'd taken valerian last night to relax the muscles. As soon as I got up and got moving it wasn't too bad. As if weeding yesterday wasn't enough, the weather cooperated enough for … Continue reading Raking today
Writers – never stop learning
In a couple blogs lately, you've heard me talk about the classes I'm taking and short stories I've been writing for them. I haven't said much more than that. Well, writers, I have a deal for you. This week, WMG Publishing is offering 50% off all their classes this week. If you want to get … Continue reading Writers – never stop learning
I had a fascinating experience today in the way of a fantastic leap of personal growth. First, we need to step back to sometime around 1995. Among a course of other things going on in my life, I was returning to attending writers conferences which I hadn't been able to do while I was going … Continue reading Okay, wow!
Never good enough?
This is a hard post to write. Why? Because I see myself as never good enough. Writing a post like this demands that I admit it. People around me would be shocked if they knew how deeply this runs to my core. After all, I was valedictorian of my graduating class and voted most likely … Continue reading Never good enough?
It was a date, remember?
So on yesterday's blog, I showed some pictures of a space painting I'd been working on in 2018 and thought I had done. But then, as any good tale would have, conflict struck. I painted another picture that made it look like garbage. Well, what's an artist supposed to do? I'd say that the correct … Continue reading It was a date, remember?
