Writing

My Husband’s Name Is Kyle. & Happy 5th Blogiversary To The Screenwriter’s Wife!

Oh Valentine’s Day. It’s ironic that that’s the day when I began this blog. 5 years ago today. How things change. How we all grow. For better or worse. For BOTH better and worse. 

Many people start blogs. I’m not original in that. Some start blogs to make money. Some start blogs as a personal creative outlet. Some start blogs because they feel compelled to write and feel that they can’t help but do anything but. Read more…

Why I Blog. Why I Will Keep Blogging.

See, I tend to take on too much. I’ve always been like this. I’m not good at waiting for things to come to fruition, and so, during inevitable slow periods that wax and wane over the journey of each project I bide my time by finding something new and interesting and jump on that bandwagon instead. And then I throw myself into it…until the initial excitement slows down and I find myself at yet another pause in that project’s journey. Then I layer on another something else to distract and divide my time with.

Another old project of his also maybe being revived. It was exciting. Things were happening. […] Read more…

My Top Posts of 2015; your opinion and mine

Ahh, the end of the another year, where we look back at all the we accomplished (or didn’t) in the last year and all we want to accomplish (or wish we would but won’t) in the next. Honestly, though I’m being a bit snarky about this, I’m actually a big fan of society’s collective moment […] Read more…

I Want It All, And I Want It Now. (& Where Am I Going With All This Again?)

And then all these grand thoughts about the meaning of life have to bubble up and demand to be reconciled…precisely at a time when I don’t have the time or mindspace to devote time or mindspace to them.

But I want to think these thoughts. I want to reconcile them into nice organized compartments in my mind. I want everything to make sense and have answers.

I want it all. Read more…

SQT 3/6/15: Seven Questions & My Most Epic Blog Post Yet

In a perfect storm of blogging community epicness, I plan to submit this post not only to the the usual This Ain’t the Lyceum‘s Seven Quick Takes Friday Link-Up, but also to Blogelina‘s Comment-a-thon event.

First Post.

My original grand idea was to to begin this first post formatted as an opening scene in a screenplay. The main character (myself) would be introduced to the audience as she was participating in some seemingly mundane, yet character telling, activity. The scene would slowly shift as the main character transitioned to somehow show that […] Read more…
