Everyone has their own mental filing system that they use to tuck away shreds of trivia, manuals covering topics like Surviving Awkward Conversations 101, fact sheets about current events, biographies, profiles and more.
If I had to describe mine, I suppose I’d tell you that it resembles an ancient study – featuring amidst the dusty bookshelves a heavy, worn desk scattered with scrolls, bits of parchment, quills in various states of disrepair, ink splotches, discarded ink bottles and the dim light from handmade beeswax candles.
Welcome to my workroom, travelers! You stand in the place where I ply my trade – pondering the inner workings of the universe, creating tales to tickle the fancy of like-minded dreamers like ourselves and to escape the trap of complacency and the mundane.
To assist you with navigating my inner musings, I’ve outlined a list of topics below to help drive your onward!
Courting the Muse
I’ve always been fascinated with fiction – be it urban fantasy, a good space opera or horror – and I have been working to cultivate my own style, voice, rhythm and tempo. Some of these posts are snippets from longer works-in-progress, some are writing exercises, and others are rambles.
Crafts & DIY
From scrapbook projects to crochet, from home improvement to sketches, my idea-of-the-moment here.
A catchall for fitness inspiration (“fitspo” for short), healthy recipes, exercise programs I dig (or am trying) and updates about any races or events I have entered, am training for or have completed.
Occasionally the mood strikes me to chronicle my thoughts about a movie, show, concert, new restaurant or game. Spoiler alerts included to warn the unwary.
Slice of Life
Day in the life of…well…me. A place to put all those posts that don’t fit into clearly defined topics.
Social Media & Tech
I am a social media stragetist after all, and a good bit of my day-to-day is spent thinking about (and keeping up with) the tools of the trade.
