A Sick Day

Posted on

I started feeling kind of weird at work yesterday, staying absolutely freezing even though it was 70 degrees and I was wearing TWO sweaters, one of them wool.  Felt worse by bed, and still felt cruddy this morning, so I took a sick day and went back to bed so that my body can fight […]

Writing Dichotomies

Posted on

As a writer I have long been familiar with the classifications of pantser vs. plotter.  Being myself somewhere caught in the middle of the two, this classification didn’t seem to capture the difficulties I sometimes (okay, I’ll be honest, often) encounter with my writing.  Whether I plot or fly by the seat of my pants, […]
