On the Concept of God.

As an atheist, I often struggle with the way God is talked about. Hell, I struggled with that first sentence even because to me, “God” should be written in quotations. Through my personal interest in all world religions I have come to realize that everyone has a personal belief for what God is. Even those […]

NEW MOON INTENTIONS: Vulnerability.

This past month, working on my story, has been way way way harder than I even truly want to admit. At the beginning of the month I began planning the story in a various amount of different ways. I googled many outlines, I tried to write and rewrite for hours and hours about how the […]

NaNoWriMo | T – 4 days | Preparation

Creative Ideas: The Good vs. The True

I feel all creative people share in the same common problem, what are we supposed to do with the plethora of good ideas? How do we know which ones are good ideas, true to our essence, and which ones are just improvements on someone else’s idea? What sort of filters can we create in our […]

Hard lessons I learned from my (dead) garden.

This past winter it snowed in Las Vegas after an unusually rainy winter. Because of all the extra wetness in the desert, my yard and everyone else’s were invaded by a strange type of weed. My neighbors weeds started to flower with tiny purple flowers, mine with white. While most responsible homeowners started to pull […]
