Waiting, a(nother) selfie, three 3s and a birthday message

Earlier today, I was still waiting for my neck brace which was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Did they run out of boxes at Amazon? More likely people…I heard there are more covid outbreaks all over the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

This virus isn’t going away anytime soon, is it…

Clandestine honesty

Those of you who have read here a while know that I’m a little bit…different.

Let’s go with that. 🙃

Here is something about me though that most of you probably will not dispute: I am nothing if not creative.

As I continue to write my stories, and edit my stories, and proofread my stories, and finish my stories, and begin new stories, I realized something.

I need some personal experience to supplement some of my creativity. And this is the reason why I started a bit of an unusual experiment a couple of weeks ago.

Really unusual.

How reading evokes improved writing (for me)

Every so often I read a story by a writer or author which awakens something inside of me. Usually, it begins right with the first sentence, or paragraph. It’s almost like I can hear the voice of this person while reading the words.

One such story is this one: Waking up from the American Dream

Writer of words is talking words again (2 videos)

One way to try and overcome writer’s block is to talk to people. But I didn’t want to talk to the people who are here in this house (trust me, we’ve been together for seven covid-months and I have nothing left to say that hasn’t already been said a million times) so I chose to talk to you instead. 🙂

The numerical values of time, and what to do with it

I am not a numbers person. I have never been much of a math person. But today, I was inspired by some numbers.

The internet calculates things for us confused folk, hence, it was easy to lift the numerical values off the screen. All I have to do now is supplement them with my crafty words.

That is my jam, as you know. Words, not numbers.

So here goes. Continue reading “The numerical values of time, and what to do with it”

GOMA™ aka exercise by walking

Welcome to the first post of GOMA™ (Getting Off My Ass) and re-start walking regularly. I have two participants: Andrea in Germany (twitter @inkovator) and LA in NYC. So far. We are encouraging each other to stay on track with 20 minutes of brisk walking per day (at minimum) and documenting some sort of proof that we did it.

Questions about blogging: Are you as curious as I am?

A lot has happened in my life recently that I typically don’t divulge on the blog. I could write about it, and in some instances, I may at some point. But writing is a strange creature, to me. My writing mindset has to be *on*. Plus it feels like my words need to rattle around in my brain a little before I can type them out and hurl them into the social internet.
