    Personal Blog Post

    This post is supposed to be my own take on a blog post. I am struggling with this. I mean, isn’t any all blog post a personal take on things? So what am I supposed to talk about? I could talk about my daughter and how her birthday is coming up, but I don’t want to expose her in depth to a world that may or may not be ready for her. And I don’t know if she would want to be out in the world just yet. I don’t want to force her into anything she’s not ready for, ever! I want her to decide what she wants in…

    New URL! Check it out!

    This morning has not been too kind to me.  I am going to try waking up early this week to see if I can get more done before she (my daughter) wakes up and throughout the day.  I am not going to lie, it’s not looking promising. I finally got my official domain name –>  www.stephwenburg.com  Please save it for your nurture reference and share it with others! It wasn’t not as easy as it sees…  Since I was trying to do this in the morning (and that is the worst time of day for me!) it did not got well.  I spent over two hours trying to get my…

    New name and my list!

    I have changed my name – my blog name that is.  It’s something I have wanted to go for a little while now once I decided more of  a focus for my blog.  How do you like it?  Please let me know!  Thanks! Also, my assignment for my Writing 101 class is all about making a list.  Lists can go on and on so they had suggested limiting the list somehow.  One way is to set a number of bullet points (5, 10 or more) or time yourself (5, 10 or more minutes) and see how many you come up with. I have decided to time myself and see how…

    The Reason I Write

    Writing is a very personal thing.  No two writers write for the same reason.  My reasons are different from the writer in the next blog over.  No two people with write the same.  So, why does someone write?  Well, i can’t say why Bob writes, but I can tell you why I write. To start off, like I have said many times before, I started writing while I was in eighth grade. I remember it clearly because we had a writing assignment.  Normally I struggled with it because I wasn’t a big fan on writing.  I didn’t get the point of it.  But this assignment was different.  It was a…

    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…
