People Watching

People Watching

I have a confession to make: I’m a spy. Well, kind of. I’m an Introvert to my core. So in most situations, you’ll find me happily on the sidelines. Watching.   I love to people watch.   We (people in general) are a funny lot. I’ve written things down that I’ve found amusing, poignant, or angered me to use as inspiration when I write a scene or a character.   So, I started thinking—I know, a dangerous thing for me to do—how many writers people watch for inspiration? I mean, how can we see something like this… And not use it somehow […]

Thank you

Thank you

I think every writer has a moment (or several) when they wonder why the hell we do what we do. At least all the writers I know have these moments. I certainly do. Sometimes it’s writer’s block. Or we think everything we’ve written is crap (which, if it’s a first draft it undoubtedly is). Or we feel like imposters, always waiting for someone to point a finger at us and call us out as frauds. Because I can’t be a real writer. Most days I don’t even feel like a real grown-up. I’ve had several of these self-defeating moments lately, […]

Monday Music and MEMEs: Memorial Day

Monday Music and MEMEs: Memorial Day

This week’s Music and MEMEs post is dedicated to our fallen soldiers. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day we stop to remember those who have died in service of our country. Memorial Day was born out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, and 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried there. Today, […]
