I've been finding a lot of ways to avoid writing. Firstly, I challenged myself with a new-to-me method of knitting. Well, not entirely new to me as I had knitted "top-down" sweater patterns before, but those patterns always resulted in raglan sleeves ... you know, the ones with a diagonal seam from armpit to collar.… Continue reading Every Day is a New Day
Life in Non Sequiturs and (Trying) to Get My Writing Groove Back
In a New Yorker article (September 13, 2021), author Amia Srinivasan made this observation: "[...] the Internet, [...] has simultaneously given us too much to read and corroded our capacity to read it." The context was feminism and what we think we know about it, but her description of how the Internet has impacted reading… Continue reading Life in Non Sequiturs and (Trying) to Get My Writing Groove Back
Waiting, but not for Godot.
I've always been indecisive, sometimes very indecisive, but never not indecisive. I wonder if indecisiveness is related to procrastination because I'm afflicted with both conditions. I have worked on my novel a bit here and there, but I've been spending the bulk of my creative energy learning punch needle work and knitting up some old… Continue reading Waiting, but not for Godot.
Notions and Sundries #amthinking #amprocrastinating
Wondering about unsolicited writing advice from strangers, whether I should frog my latest knitting project, and what good is LinkedIn for a writer.
Published (Again) and Procrastinating #MondayBlogs #procrastinating
As I mentioned some time ago (and where does the time go ...), my little-short-story-that-could, "No More Tomorrows," was being published again (be still my heart) by Z Publishing House in their new anthology America's Emerging Writers. You can read my announcement here. I love Z Publishing 🙂 Because the manuscript turned out longer than… Continue reading Published (Again) and Procrastinating #MondayBlogs #procrastinating
I Got Almost … #MondayBlogs #Procrastination
Nothing. Yes, dear Reader, I got almost nothing for this post today. I have been fairly productive of late, but not with writing or blogging. Again, it's the knitting. A friend noted that the buttons on the baby sweater I knitted for a baby-to-be might not be appropriate for a baby. Yes, they are cute… Continue reading I Got Almost … #MondayBlogs #Procrastination
It's Saturday and I'm beat after a rather intense work week which includes 1.5 days of jury duty (save that for another post). I'm sitting at my computer, feeling overwhelmed (per usual) with all the little items on my virtual to-do list. Where to start? What about that pile of New Yorker articles and NY… Continue reading Patience

8538 (and counting)
I didn't think I would have it in me to write today. Last night (or rather this morning) I was up until 1 AM. Fortunately I had the day off work, but I kept napping and we had "stuff" to do so I didn't get to writing again until late. I thought for sure I… Continue reading 8538 (and counting)
I'm procrastinating at the moment. Past time to go to bed but just a few more minutes on the computer ... so I go ahead and check my stats on my blog and I have 12 spam messages. Usually I just delete them, but some of them are quite funny so I decided to share… Continue reading Spam-a-lot
