While I definitely don’t have a step by step process for this writing business, I do know that certain things definitely help and I don’t mind sharing.
1. Be comfortable.
Try to get to a favorite place or maybe bring something that helps you relax. For me, it’s wrapping a blanket around me until I’m a burrito and having a hot cup of coffee or tea nearby. Continue reading
Today was a ‘Berry’ day in terms of color on the side of the spectrum that makes up pretty shades of pink and red. This is specifically referring to what I happened to be wearing and/or accessories I got, and I didn’t realize they were all so similar until later. Continue reading
Over and over again I have seen a common piece of advice often given to beginning writers. WRITE. You’d think this would be obvious. Isn’t that why writers are called writers? Because they write? *gasp* What a breakthrough. Continue reading
I really enjoy a nice warm cup of tea in the evenings now (I blame England). And because of this, one thing after another has led me to discover I am a very easily distracted person as well as the fact that I just avoid humanity sometimes. Continue reading

Today I don’t think I can help but babble a bit about one of my favorite words. Apricity: the warmth of the sun in winter. Sadly it isn’t used too often but I stumbled across it rather recently and it has been my current favorite word since.

I got to walk to my class as they fell on and around me and absolutely loved every second of it despite the cold. Because snow makes the cold worth it at the point, in my opinion.
