One Word 365 (2019)


     The purpose of One Word 365 is to put aside the usual New Year’s resolutions that we never seem to keep. Instead, you pick one word. Just one word that you want to spend the year focusing on and living out… whatever that may mean for you, personally. I’m a bit early with this […]

The Bullet Journal: To Plan or to Track?


I’ve tried a lot of ways to get myself organized with my writing. Not just in terms of keeping track of ideas and notes, but in terms of making myself sit down and get things done. I was using a Monthly/Daily planner for a while, but I eventually fell away from keeping it up. I […]

Where has the year gone?


I’ve let this blog slip into inactivity, and I am sorry. Life has been busy and my attention span for reading has been almost nonexistent. I had decided to do the 52 Book in 52 Weeks challenge in an attempt to get myself reading again, but that didn’t help. I will try again to get […]

I’ve gone through a period where I’ve been lazy and not feeling well, and just haven’t been feeling like doing much of anything, including reading. By association, this blog has been virtually inactive. I’m making plans to change that, and am currently reading a book for review. I will do my best to finish it this […]
