Ageism and the fallacy of stale dreams (This stuck out to me: “If you love something and you’re willing to put in the work and meet the standards of excellence in an ethical way, why should age ever matter? Telling someone they’re “too old” to do something denies their gifts to the world, and how dare any of us do that.”)

How Do You Write podcast by Rachael Herron


Things I learned via Twitter:

“The world is not a pleasant place to be without someone to hold and be held by.” 

– Nicki Giovanni

“Be curious, not judgmental.”

– Ted Lasso

“Ask yourself: Why am I seeing and feeling this? How am I growing? What am I learning? Remember: Every coincidence is potentially meaningful. How high your awareness level is determines how much meaning you get from your world.”

– Ansel Adams

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.”

— Cynthia Occelli

“When a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born—and that this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible.”

– Anne Lamott

I am an oil-and-water combination of humor, ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, procrastination, and drive. I am an aspiring romance novelist who writes by the seat of her pants. Waging and sometimes winning a daily battle with procrastination, plots, characters, and the day job.
