Ramblings and Zines

It still smells like spring and the sun lingers in the evening, creating an atmosphere in which I want to both be waking up as early as I can and falling asleep as late as possible. I don’t want to miss any part of the day. My window is open even when it gets too […]

Spring Writing

My days smell like spring which is lovely but I’ve discovered a problem. Spring is motivating for writing because the sun is warm on my back and everything smells fresh and new and clean and I don’t have to wear a thousand layers just to feel my toes. But I feel like writing so I […]

For Lack of a Plan / NaNoWriMo 2018

The decision has been made: NaNoWriMo will be attempted by this camper. But perhaps not in true Sarah-fashion. In NaNoWriMo there are many horror stories of people walking into November with no plan, no outline, no plot. They go into it with nothing. And many crash halfway through the month because they don’t know where […]

Words Formed

One Story, Two Story

I feel like blogging but the only thing to blog about right now is the weather and tea and driving through the fog into the sunshine. In some ways this is a nice place to be because life is simple and enjoyable and each day holds stability. But in another way how many times can […]

Oh Hey Perfectionism

Get a cup of tea because we’re here for the long haul, campers. You ready? Okay. Perfectionism can look different to what I typically associate with it. I thought I wasn’t a perfectionist because I started a blog where I had to write every day regardless of how polished or refined my writing was. I […]

Blank Pages / Poem

I feel like I have run out of blogging words, so read this short poem I wrote instead, called ‘Blank Pages’. Words sitting on the page in front of me Standing on the outside looking in. Tell me what you see when you look inside You don’t show your tears – There’s nothing left to […]
