13 Things I’ve Learned About Writing from Baking

Earlier this year, I decided that I wanted to start baking more regularly, even if only once a week. This quickly became an activity that I do every Monday, and usually I make Turner’s and my bread for the week. I like getting a bit experimental with it and sometimes do other baked goods in … Continue reading 13 Things I’ve Learned About Writing from Baking


Around the Block

A couple weeks ago, I was trying to finish a blog post that I had been excited about for weeks, but then when I sat down to write it, and later to finish it, I couldn’t think of a single example or word that I had been wanting to use. My mind was blank. I … Continue reading Around the Block

Someone Who Inspires Me

I’ve spent a good deal of time thinking about how to answer this one, especially since I have so many amazing people in my life that bring wisdom, fun, and encouragement, as well as many people I’ve never met or met in passing that have highly impacted my life. But I realised that I want … Continue reading Someone Who Inspires Me

Five Places I Want to Visit

I’m definitely a contradiction. One of the most baffling types. I itch for two conflicting things constantly, and I can never tell which I want more. I am a homebody, but I’m also a traveler. There are so many things that I adore about both. Like the soft, yet cutting feeling of blades of grass … Continue reading Five Places I Want to Visit

Productivity in A Boggus Life

I'm one of the worst at actually following through on my own plans for productivity, especially when it comes to my blog. I tend to make these schedules, these routines, and these habits in my mind, but I rarely ever do them in real life. Because of that, I tend to spend a lot of … Continue reading Productivity in A Boggus Life

Poem: Take a Soft Step Back

It's been a really long time since I've posted anything. I have no excuses, and also no apologies. It's been a truly crazy year, and I simply haven't kept writing as one of my top priorities. But sometimes I just feel inspired and motivated, and I wrote this poem during one of those spells. I … Continue reading Poem: Take a Soft Step Back

Prioritising Creativity

My mind looks like a cluttered desk, with stacks of papers and pens strewn about, covering everything from the computer to my to-do lists spanning several unfinished months. It's full of distractions, doodads, books, ideas jotted quickly on napkins and post-it notes, lists of shows and movies I want to watch, pictures of my fiancé … Continue reading Prioritising Creativity

Anxiety and Abuse

Not many people are aware of this, but last year I found myself in a mentally abusive relationship. Healthy Place defines mental abuse as “any act including confinement, isolation, verbal assault, humiliation, intimidation, infantilization, or any other treatment which may diminish the sense of identity, dignity, and self-worth.” This can occur in so many different … Continue reading Anxiety and Abuse

Writing: Planning a Scene

Tea in hand, Google Docs pulled up, Harry Potter soundtracks blaring through my headphones, and a desire to write (and hopefully motivation and inspiration to go with it). This is a common picture of how I start writing on whatever project on any given day. But lately, I’ve found myself sitting down and just staring...and … Continue reading Writing: Planning a Scene

Story: My New Return

It’s time for a story. Most of the ideas I originally had for this turned into things that will be longer stories instead. Thankfully Azelyn came to the rescue with a writing exercise. The prompt: Tell a dreamlike story/memory using only 50 words. I ended up basing this story off the prompt and my memory … Continue reading Story: My New Return
