An attempt at Five Sentence Fiction: Radiance

Five Sentence Fiction: Radiance. Breaking through the top of the clouds was quite a bit wetter than she imagined, though just as easy. The view was spectacular; pinks and purples of the setting sun bouncing off the ocean and shining up through the heavy cloud layer and casting the whole evening in a magical glow. When she took a breath of the chilly air, her heart thundered and she realized there was no turning back now. Her life had completely…

Who I follow and Why

Re: Chris Brogan’s post on the 97 Ideas for Building A Valuable Platform This post inspired me to write something today about the over-saturation of social media. I already told you Who I follow, and Why but now it’s time for me to admit that I don’t /really/ follow as many people as my social media networks say that I do. While I love to read the articles and blog posts that everyone posts, and I’m all too ready to…

Who I follow, and why.

Probably won’t get to see it until Netflix. But it gives me a wonderful countdown calendar until Baby#2 arrives. 🙂

Intimidated by Research Necessary for Future WIP

In which I babble about life goals

I’m turning 30 this year. In just a few months, actually. I’m almost there. I know there were things that I wanted to do with my life, and things that I wanted to achieve… and for the most part I consider myself to be relatively successful in reaching my goals. Of course, it took a village, but I like to feel that I’ve had a big part in these accomplishments. I’ve learned a great deal from all of them. When…
