A Mind Less Traveled



Trending Tuesday Chia Pet Politics

I’ve caved in and given myself over to one selfish post on this year’s Presidential election. If I could sum it up for you in one easy word, I would. But the current climate of Chia Pet Politics has me dreaming of days when the sensational headlines of another boring news cycle centered around which Kardashian mayhem riveted a nation to the TV with their latest antics. I would even settle for a late-night infomercial about which thigh cream will convert my gams into Starsky and Hutch Daisy Dukes next summer. Gone are the days Continue reading “Trending Tuesday Chia Pet Politics”

Manic Monday – Ready for NaNoWriMo (Not!)

It’s that time of year again – National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo. Time to air blow off the keys of your laptop, spin character arcs, plan the caffeine-intake calendar, and stock up on NoDoze. What crazy person would attempt to write 50,000 words in a month? Apparently, me and half a billion other writers who have steel running through their veins and scarecrow stuffing for brains. But unlike the Tin Man, we have heart. Lots of heart!

Freelance Friday How to Write The Blockbuster Novel: Edition Three – Stakes


Writing a blockbuster novel is the dream of many writers. You wonder what a year, or two, of your devoted writing time, sacrifices, and financial commitment will glean for you at the end of a crazy, tedious road of writing that novel. You may hope for validation or simply have a story busting at the seams that won’t be silenced. And who among us Continue reading “Freelance Friday How to Write The Blockbuster Novel: Edition Three – Stakes”

Workout Wednesday – Squat, Drop, and Roll


The idea that I might be healthy enough to exercise with any regularity is a novel unto itself, full of conflict, suspense, and plot twists. But today, I will spare you the humiliating look into vast depths of what sloth-ism looks like and get right into why I am mildly curious about squats and all the pain that rightfully accompanies said exercise.

When I think of Freelance, my mind jams into high gear and goes right to visions of the Pulitzer Prize. Hoards of intellectual fans exalting their favorite journalist. I didn’t realize it, but I’ve lived with Freelancers in one form or another my entire adult life. Imagine my shock and astonishment when I learned what Freelance really means. Pulitzer be damned! I’m the real thing. Continue reading “FREELANCE FRIDAY MEANETH NOT WHAT YE THINK”



My favorite sitcom, Will & Grace, was responsible for one of the best drinking one-liners ever. “You say tomato, I say toe-mah-toe. You say potato, I say Vodka.” Today’s Thirsty Thursday lesson, children, will leave you running for the weekend and the nearest liquor store. If you dream of Ferris wheels and vodka filtered through cotton candy, that’s fair enough. But if you prefer your tater-booze filtered through diamonds, Dan Aykrod is the only guy on the planet who can fulfill that dream. Now that’s funny!
