    The Usefulness of Binders.

    This writing Wednesday, I thought I would talk about my love of binders!  I love binders! They are just so useful! Binders can be used in many different ways.  All lot of us remember having a binder or two during our school days.  Remember the teacher always showing us how to organize it?  Here are a few ways I use binders from my everyday life to my writing adventures! One of my many binders I have, is a binder filled with notebook paper.  I use this one for free-writes, and brain dumps.  Sometimes staring at the screen doesn’t work or when my daughter is awake and I don’t want her…

    Steph’s writing corner.

    Today’s Writing 101 assignment is all about where the magic happens – in other words, where the writing happens! I love sharing about my writing space. (It also asks questions about  writing habits, equipment and other things.  I will get to that in a few!) We had just moved into a new place and it had a sun room.  It was dead space for us for quite a while but them we decided to create an amazing place for work to happen! It has become my favorite place in the house.  We have two desks, a corner desk and then a small glass top desk (that we have had forever!)…

Daydreaming or procrastination really does help your creative side to think.  It allows the creative juices flow because your brain is relaxing and isn’t focused on anything.  That is a why so many great ideas come from taking a shower or sitting in the oval office; it’s not a difficult task to do and your brain decides to wonder.  Overall, it sounds great. But (and there is always a but!), too much of a wonderful thing is a bad thing! Only daydreaming will…

    Quote challenge

    I was nominated by Hope, from this blog post.  Thank you for the love! The rule is that you have to post one quote a day and tag three people in one post. That is what I will do!  🙂 But first, let me share a quote. ‘Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.’ –Alice in Wonderland This one of my favorite quotes of all time.  It’s from Alice’s trail in Wonderland and it hits the nail on the head so well!  As writer’s (or just humans in general) we like to talk and tell others what has happened in…

    August Wrap Up and a Game Plan to Fix it!

    Oh man, August flew by! I don’t know where the time went.  I now have an eleven month old tiny terror and it’s another month closer to NaNoWriMo! August was a piss poor month for me when it came to writing.  My word count was 9649 FOR THE WHOLE MONTH! That is pathetic!  On top of that, I only wrote for a eleven days out of the whole month. I feel like a liar when I say that I am a writer! A writer writes everyday (or does something related to writing).  I only did it eleven day out of the month! I am just shocked by that! So I…
