The good news is, I finished the challenge in … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018
It's October, yes. I know that. But in September I wrote down four things that scare me that I wanted to do in September. You see, I'm doing research for a book I'm writing about how to do hard things. It's going....about how I expected. A lot of energy in the beginning of the writing … Continue reading 4 hard things in September

Every time I come here to write about a particular topic, I run into the fact that I haven't blogged here in a while and that I can't just talk about one topic when you have no context around that topic so then I end up writing posts that are really just life and "what … Continue reading Super random updates
Yesterday was the anniversary of my cancer diagnosis. My "cancerversary," if you will. Here's what my life looks like today... I haven't seen a hospital in months. I get a lot of restful sleep.
