    Recently I was quite disturbed by an Instagram post by a photographer I respect and admire. This woman, who says she’s a believer, posted something of this nature: “I’m a Christian. I love Jesus. But let’s admit it, I cuss a little. I read questionable romance novels. And I want to shoot your wedding no matter what your relationship is and whatever you identify as.” (Paraphrased.)

    Excuse me?

    a-jar-of-fireflies

    Hey guys! I have something a little different for you all today…I’m releasing another short story! This one I wrote in one sitting after being inspired by a picture, and hardly did any editing…some things just happen like that. I love this story. It’s one of the favorites I’ve ever written! Since it’s so short, I’m not going to publish it on Amazon but just post it in my blog post. I hope you all enjoy!

    February went by with a breath; in a blink. Somehow, the month that usually seems to creep by went faster than ever this year. Now it’s March. The other night, I heard crickets. If there’s one thing about winter nights, it’s that they are silent.

    Punctuation is yet another very important part in writing. Without it, many things wouldn’t make sense – or worse, many things may come across differently.

    Well, today I’m going to talk a bit about blogging. You might ask what the title means. I named this post, “Why Three Hours?” because I remember a conversation I had once with a fellow blogger. I was saying that it took me 2-3 hours to make a post. Her response was, “Wow, it only takes me 20 minutes!” So I decided to explain what it takes to make a post. Also, I have a couple bad blogging habits I’m sharing at the end! :)

    I have always loved to write. I am not good at stories, so I embrace my love through my blog. Conversational compositions seem to work best for me, and recently, I’ve been trying short sketches. Over the years, I have really found some great writing tips that can really “ump” your stories, essays, and articles. Even if it’s just writing an email, you’ll be able to find these tips useful!
