I wanted a Subway sandwich.
I was out shopping with my mom. The adrenaline that comes from wildly spending money, mixed with perseverance to find a bag that looked like a Givenchy Antigona without the cost, left me famished.
We found ourselves in the mall.
“Do you want Subway?” I asked, stepping into the line.
I’ll be honest. My mother had no choice. My stomach lead my heart, and my heart led my feet, and my feet led me to Subway. It was basically the plot line of every romance novel ever written.

Writers are faced with many challenges. What topic? Word count? Grammatical errors? Should this go on my lifestyle blog or autobiography? What the heck am I going to write about today?
Was my last post more depressing than humorous?
But the biggest challenge of all is finding time to write, to consult the muse, and tap at that keyboard. Here are some tips of the trade.

It’s sad when things end.
An empty box of Cheez-Its. The last episode of your favorite vampire-romance TV show. The conclusion of love month. The end of a relationship.
We mourn and cry and remember the good times we had. But no amount of tears will bring back those precious cheesy-salty-crackery moments you had together. You can’t relive the awestruck shock over your TV love’s heroic sacrifice. You can’t go back in time. Soon, you’ll have to move on.

I basically showed up at church, wearing nothing but my grandma’s old skirt.
And I got nothing but compliments.
When I wear this outfit, ladies ask me questions. It begins with an over-all praise, then their expression focuses. They step back, stare at my knees, and say, “wait. Is it a skirt or a dress?”

In the world of blogging/YouTube/social media, new, fresh ideas are required, and honestly expected. And at a faster pace than we can keep up with.
What’s a creative mind to do? Stare at the wall until it gives us answers?
Seeing that I’m struggling for ideas today, I was inspired to write this article to help others come up with creative material, off the seat of their pants, because—you know—deadlines are a thing, a very scary thing, and they motivate like no other.

Happy Blogmas day two!
. . .
This is the part where I stare at the blank screen and realize I did nothing festive today.
Or nothing at all.
I did my devotional this morning in an agonizing frustration of distraction. The problem was I went to Best Buy yesterday, and I wanted everything.
I want a convertible laptop. One of those that’s a tablet, but you can click it into a keyboard and it’s a laptop too.
But mostly, I’ve been obsessing over cameras.
If you’re a camera junkie, I think I’ve narrowed it down to the Sony a5000 or the Canon Powershot s110. I want one in white, but I’ve been told it’s impractical. Thoughts?

Thanksgiving is a time to remember how blessed you are, not to stress.
If you think you’re going crazy worrying, you can read this article of simple tips from hosting to attitude, on how to survive this Thanksgiving and actually enjoy yourself knowing everything is covered.
Someone I know lost her mother yesterday. She was in the ICU and declining, and yesterday they got the call.
A week before Thanksgiving.
I know there’s no dad in the picture. That was a tragic story as well.
I shouldn’t know these things about her life. I’m not close to her even to be called a friend. I’ve just been there.
There, in the room, when things have happened. When news was relayed to someone else with me standing by.
I feel like God wanted me to know these things, though I have no right. I’ve no business knowing. I don’t mean to know. It’s just too much of a coincidence that I’ve been there every single time something has happened.

I’m going to write about something very close to my heart.
So dear, in fact, that I’ve already mentioned it in more than one post (5 Things I’m Really Bad At, Time, Spring Cleaning).
I have become world renown in this subject. A professional in every sense of the word. A high authority on the matter.
It has taken nineteen years for me to claim such attribution. Nineteen years of trial and error, hard work and practice. I am now prepared to share with you all my secrets on the matter.
You will never have to wonder “am I doing it right?” again.
Here’s how not to clean your room.
