Backyard Rabbits by Steve Keenan Photography

I hope your Spring is shaping up nicely. It’s been hard to write on the blog lately, as I struggle with my health. One of the saddest things about mental illness can be the loss of desire, the way the creative call becomes muffled, passions smothered by depressive fog.… Continue reading

NaNoWriMo Update and Writing Resources

Sharing passions by

Today is Day 4 of NaNoWriMo. Yesterday I almost quit. I had been writing 100-200 word sprints for most of the day. My body was hurting and I was tired.
