Not Write I didn't write this week. I meant to but my holiday weekend passed in a flash what with my younger son's birthday slumber party and all. It didn't help either that I started reading Radium Girls and couldn't put it down. Although I wish I had posted...read more
There's No Better Time On Saturday morning I finally cashed in a gift card for a massage that I received 18 months ago. I'd kept meaning to use it, but I was trying to find the best day to go. I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity for relaxation...read more
Mindful Practice A couple years ago, out of the blue, my dad sent me a practice chanter set. He'd found it at a thrift store and thought of how many times I'd said I wanted to learn to play the bagpipes when I was a kid, and, well, one thing led to another. It turns...read more
Do Not Say Cheese My passport expires later this year so today I spontaneously went to get my photos since I was having a good hair day and obviously it's very important to have excellent hair on a photo that only a few strangers per year will even see. The rules have...read more

New Year's Evolutions Like an inspiration-type Pokemon, YeahWrite occasionally evolves. This year, that means the Nonfiction Know-how is retiring in favor of its evolved form: the Technique Toolbox. "TnT" is a more dynamite acronym than NfKn anyway. That's...read more
Well, it's 2018, and the best proof of that is how many times I'm going to scribble out "2017" as I write the date. I keep thinking I'll get it right one of these years, but so far no luck. In the spirit of both "making old things new" and "scribbling out"...read more
Happy New Year! Well, here we are - the last day of 2017. I love the new year because it gives me a chance for a fresh start. I have big plans and high hopes for 2018. How about you? Do you love to make resolutions and goals or does December flow into...read more
