No, YOU Should be Writing!

Yeah. So. I should be writing. And I got stuck in the world wide web – it’s a sticky place. (Get it…stuck…web…sticky…whatever, I’m funny.) I found some famous people willing to yell at me and tell me what’s what. Thought I’d share them with you. Just in case you need to be writing, too. Enjoy!

These Words are Enough Today

I read this and there was nothing more I could add to it. It was exactly what I felt today – that I had enough, that I do enough, that I AM enough. I hope that you may have this feeling, not just once but always. I am enough. YOU are enough. We are all ENOUGH, just as we are, where we are, how we are.

Novel Thoughts: A Short Blog Break

During the month of November I probably won’t be on Eccentric Randomness very much. There’s that whole National Novel Writing Month thing going on and my writing skills are needed on that. But, if you’re missing me, you can check out my “Novel Thoughts” blog. Over there, I just drop quick thoughts as I go through the process of writing a full novel in 30 days. It’s a simple way for me to journal the process and not feel like I need to add images or styling or anything. It’s not pretty but it can be pretty funny. :) I’ll see you back here for sure in December!

NaNoWriMo: A New Novel

Today kicks off NaNoWriMo – or National Novel Writing Month for those not in the know. I wasn’t sure if I’d join the pool of crazy writers this year but when I woke up today, I had the itch to write again. So…I jumped in the deep in. I’ve already pumped out about 1,200 words in an hour!

My Thoughts on Writer’s Block or A Conversation Amongst My Imaginary Friends

Today as I was driving home I started analyzing my recent bout of writer’s block. It occurred to me it wasn’t actually so “recent”; I haven’t written anything (except a few blog posts) in about 6 months. Right now it feel less like a mental block and more like a deliberate set of malicious tactics being performed by my characters (read: imaginary friends). During that drive I imagined this scene…

Have you Hugged A SysAdmin Today?

The last Friday in July is always System Administrator Appreciation Day. So, today is the day to thank those amazing men and women who keep us up and running at the office. Without our three amazing guys and their boss we would be in some deep shit around here!

Expressing My Freedom of Speech

Believe it or not, I keep a lot of my opinions to myself (or just between me and a few good friends). I don’t share my opinions on gay marriage, the Confederate flag, feminism, ISIS, religion, politics or many other things. Why? Because I like to avoid conflict and I like to keep my friends. I can be pretty conservative (again, hard to believe I know). But, today I’m speaking out on all these things in one fell swoop. But maybe not as you would expect. (And this does get pretty wordy so bear with me).
