I found this awesome infographic here. Check out the link if you want to see it in more detail.
I ran across this parody today while doing some research for an article. It is Weird Al’s parody of “Blurred Lines”.
So why post it here? Because his version is called “War Crimes“, and I’ve got plenty of Grammar Nazis that would appreciate this.
So what do you think about people using “literally” incorrectly? What about “whom”?…
Just found this great article for freelance writers like me, who like to go to cafes in order to be around…people. What can I say, sometimes working alone in your home office can be lonely. Anyway, here is a great article about being safe when you’re using public WiFi. Don’t be the victim of identity theft or some gnarly virus.
If you’re looking to procrastinate from work on this lovely Monday afternoon, check out this shortlist of the 50 Coolest Writers of All Time. I think that we can all agree that the title is a big presumptuous. “…of All Time”, really? But, while I agree that sometimes (okay, “a lot of the time”) female writers aren’t nearly as represented as they should be, that doesn’t negate the fact that all of…
While doing some research for an article, I happened upon this nugget of gold. It is a PDF file of a Knoll Research Project on “Creating Collaborative Spaces that Work.” Now, while I don’t actually work around people on a daily basis, I kept a copy for myself for future reference.
If you are the head of an office and want to jump on the “free flow“, open space work environment bandwagon, I…
I follow a FB page and podcast called “A Little Bird Told Me Freelancing Podcast.” Not only are the two hosts talented and eloquent, they also have charming accents. I often check out a podcast if I am feeling a little cynical or jaded about work. I have to admit that (while I love my job), sometimes it can feel tedious. Often, something as simple as a cup of coffee, a refreshing glass of water,…
I found this article on Entrepreneur.com today while working. It is an excellent resource for small businesses who want to make relevant and timely social media posts that really engages readers. I thought that I would share it with everyone so that you could benefit from its awesome info as well.
Have a great day everyone!
This is fantastic

I am getting married next year. It will be a blessed event filled with family, friends, and pretty flowers (white and blue). I am new to this whole wedding planning thing and although my fiance thinks that it is all very overwhelming, I’m secretly having a blast. #allthegirlythings
It’s still weird calling him my fiance and we are still a little green around the ears when it comes to this stage…
I can officially consider myself a professional writer. I get paid to write words. That payment goes toward paying bills (even writers like to eat and have a roof over our heads — despite how Hollywood likes to depict us). Then I’m broke and I have to wait for my next paycheck. Cie la vie…Anyway, this is why I feel as though I can have a pretentioustitle like “5 Things that I Know About Being a…
Yes, I’ve been absent.
Yes, my excuse is work.
However, I would like to take this moment to plug my personal website. I’m revamping my personal website in hopes that I can use it as my professional freelance website.
What do you think?
What do you like to see when you go to a “professional writer’s website”?
I’d love to hear/read your comments and thoughts about this topic. I’m…
Hello everyone! I’m sorry about the absence of…well, anything. I could give you excuses (like I always do) but that excuse is always going to be “work” so there’s really no point.
Today I wanted to talk about four things that I do to help keep my mind
1) Don’t Skip Breakfast
I know that it’s tempting to want to just run out the door, hit the coffee shop before work, and then down buckets of…
I’m in the middle of my work day. I figured that I would stop by and make the changes that I promised last week. Let me know what you think (if it’s hard to read or if you have any other suggestions).
WFPS is so excited to be going to the conference in August. If you haven’t checked out the Willamette Writers Conference yet, here is the link. The workshops they are offering this…
