The Contentment Challenge

One of the benefits of the #Blogtober14 challenge so far has been that just getting into the habit of writing regularly is churning the creative juices so I can write on things that are more relevant to the vision I have for this blog rather than always following the prompt in front of me. Today’s inspiration came […]

Stop trying to make “Slutoween” happen.

In what I personally consider to be a more offensive marketing fail, I received an email newsletter today in which the featured post was “Slutoween 2.0” (there was a 1.0, apparently), which purported to run down the “over-the-top” sexy costumes available for purchase this Halloween.At the end of the blurb, the poster implored, “Let’s see a little bit more […]

Quotes I live by [#Blogtober14 Day 15]

So I was just kidding about blogging again yesterday. On the plus side, I wrote two more pages of my book! Maybe one day after it’s published some other people’s favorite quotes will come from its pages. In the meantime…back to #Blogtober14! I actually collect quotes, so the only temporary difficulty I had with today’s suggested topic was whittling […]

Letter to myself [#Blogtober14 Day 8]

I’m actually really looking forward to today’s #Blogtober14 prompt: Write a letter to yourself in 10 years. Call me weird, but I have written letters to myself before and despite losing them before their intended open dates I relish the practice (that compulsory “letter to yourself at the end of high school” exercise notwithstanding). I wrote myself a letter to […]
