An Update

I have been maintaining Poeta Officium for over 2 years now and recently, I purchased the theme I am using thinking I should be investing in my work, put it out there and stake my claim….. …….and since I bought this theme I have contributed diddly squat to my blog. Oh, maybe 1 or 2 posts. So. I am now […]

My Muse-ical Process

It’s probably no surprise that music has always inspired me to write; this has been my process since I was a teenager. I’ve written about music and writing before on Poeta Officium but I thought I’d write about it again seeing as it has been the main driving force behind my story ideas lately. Most of you […]

The Writer – A Short Description

So as I sit preparing to write … my words are failing me. My mind is failing me. My heart is pleading with me …… ‘for the love of God – write something!!’ Fingers at the ready, resting on the keyboard…yet so very still… And my words fail me. And my mind fails me. And […]

The Opposite Of Writers’ Block……

…..is managing to break through that brick wall once and for all. I’m not sure there is a term to phrase it. But I can tell you what it feels like to me…..YIPPEE! Writers’ Yippee? Yeah, why not 🙂 And oh, how I am experiencing this right now! I feel so proud of my progress. I am over […]

It’s made me feel warm and fuzzy and all I can think about are small fluffy kittens… Of course, there are rules to follow with these awards: The Beautiful Blogger Award is for those blogs […]

Brace Yourself, It Has A Name!

Today was such a constructive day. Thank God for that, I say! I did so much writing I can’t believe it. Well, a lot of it was character development. And boy did I develop. I even have a title for my project – and I wanted to share it with you. World, I’d like to […]

In The Zone

This morning as I was arranging shells on the living room floor with my little girl, I found myself withdrawing….zoning out. It wasn’t lack of coffee or lack of sleep. It wasn’t boredom. It was me getting into the zone. The Writing Zone. Let me explain.
