Writer-vation: A Writer’s Manifesto

So I think Sunday’s are going to continue to be wordless. I’ve been trying to write something of substance for the last few hours now and guess what?! I. Gots. Nada!!! Buuuuuut I refuse to “skip” a day of posting. I’ve been doing to well the last couple of weeks and it would be such a waste of effort if I skipped today’s post.

So with that said, I found the below graphic on Pinterest a few moments ago. Well I take that back. I saw it a few days ago but I don’t think I posted it to my Writing 101 board. In reading over it today, I think it’s perfect for a Writer-vation piece.

I hope it’s helpful!!

#NaBloPoMo Daily Prompt: Magical Blogger Skill

So this post was supposed to have been published yesterday. You guys ‘member! I mentioned in yesterday’s Dr. Seuss for the Soul post that I had been working on three posts but only one obviously got published instead. I know I know I can’t remember past five minutes either sometimes. It’s okay it’s Friday. I’ll let you guys slide just this once.

Anyway, this post stems from yesterday’s NaBloPoMo Prompt: What is the one skill you see in other bloggers that you wish you had?

Here goes nada…


You ever have a lot to say but not a lot of time to write everything swirling round and round at the speed of light.


I have NOW started four posts this week and still have to plan Saturday and Sunday’s posts and am I even remotely close to finishing said posts!? Hell da fuck NO!

I have been quite successful at writing everyday since Tuesday, November 4th. I haven’t missed not one day. But today, I came soooooo close to not writing anything at all for today. NOTHING. ZILCH. NADA!!!! And it bugs the living crap out of me. I hate when I have the words swirling around in my head but I don’t have the time to compile them into a blog post.

So that is the magical blogger skill I wished I possessed that other bloggers seem to have but could possibly be just as disorganized as I am.

How does a successful blogger muster up the time to write every single day without fail? I’m surprising myself by doing the amount of writing I have been lately but folks I think I have hit a plateau and have run out of creative ideas.

No, I’m not giving up on the challenge. Just know for the next couple of days, my posts may be short and sweet and to the point.





Thanks for being patient and reading…

Dr. Seuss for the Soul

I’m a HUGE fan of everything Dr. Seuss. I even have a Cat in the Hat metal lunchbox. don’t judge me it’s the shizzle!

Anyway. I really don’t have a lot to say today, even though I started three (including this one) posts today. Guess which post is getting published?!?!
