Holiday Hullabaloo: Life and Writing With the Magic of Threes

Living a simple, stress-free life is something I always strive for, though continually fail at… miserably.

Writing On Demand: A Challenge

The gift of writing can feel like a burden at times. The weight of creativity overwhelms if there’s a deadline looming, or writer’s block has kicked in. I used to wait… a long time for my passion to find me. When days turned into weeks, or months, or more, I knew I had to take charge. This is when the concept of “writing on demand” was reborn in my mindset. […]
