Joy in the Unknown

A little late, but here is my reflection from the month of October: “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” —Psalm 94:19 NIV The “Unknown” is not a comfortable place to be, especially if it triggers feelings of isolation or of being misunderstood. Many insecurities are unearthed and we can find… Continue reading Joy in the Unknown

Coffee Addict: Entrusting Your Tastebuds (and Your Life) to God

Coffee is incredible! I drink it every day: not because I’m addicted, but for the experience it brings. I don’t get a caffeine rush or energy boost that others claim to experience, neither does it keep me awake at night when I’m tired. In fact, coffee does the opposite for me. There is something in… Continue reading Coffee Addict: Entrusting Your Tastebuds (and Your Life) to God

Where’s Waldo?

I'm still here! I'm still writing! I've just been somewhat quiet lately. My fiction WIP is at a stand still due to unresolved plot holes but I've been writing Christian articles and Physical Wellness pieces to keep my writing muscles toned, despite my novel's sad lack of progress. In any case I wanted to check… Continue reading Where’s Waldo?

“Tristan” a Poem — (and a novel excerpt)

The poetic telling of "Tristan" is dark and tragic, written in iambic pentameter. I wonder about this man, this Tristan, and what might have happened to him before this "scene" of the poem. Poor Tristan. I hope you enjoy but, be warned, it is of a darker nature. And as a fun, free, goodie, I've… Continue reading “Tristan” a Poem — (and a novel excerpt)

Lands of Ink&Paper—February “Reads and Reviews”

February was mostly masked by the winter blues, directly affecting my productivity for sure! As a result, I spent more time reading and reflecting instead of writing. I still managed to accumulate a humble 6,500 word count however. It was not the 20,000 I'd hoped for or the 15,000 achievment of January, but life required… Continue reading Lands of Ink&Paper—February “Reads and Reviews”
