Adventures in BrandyLand


Recently I decided on a slight re-brand of my blog. I’ve been VERY lax on blogging lately and it dawned on me — perhaps my blog is too specific. I love writing, but admit I wrote more when I blogged about anything and everything and I’ve never really been good at focusing on one task for too long. (Proof is my four unfinished manuscripts).

So, welcome to “The Wandering Pigeon: Adventures in BrandyLand.” But wait, let’s back up a bit. How did “BrandyLand” come about? Well, funny you should ask. Okay, so you didn’t ask, but I’m going to tell you anyway. I was chatting with my boss last week about my office (or something, I can’t remember exactly what) and the word BrandyLand came to mind. Then, later, she added “It’s like Candy Land only better.” And, it stuck. And now I totally need a “BrandyLand” sign for my office door.

So, while this blog will still focus on gratitude, it will branch out into other topics, because life moves forward and so does this blog.

Onward! (And more later).


A creative place

So I’ve been a little stagnant in my writing lately. So, today I decided to make myself a “place” to write. I cleared off a library desk in the house and set wpid-20150131_222403.jpgit up for the perfect little writing hideaway. After all, my novel isn’t going to finish itself and I truly do want to finish it.

I’ve been a bit uninspired lately for one reason or another — work is stressful. I’ve been sick. Just been plain busy. But I realize that many authors out there have full-time jobs and they still find the time to write. It’s all in where your priorities lie — or don’t lie depending on how you look at it.

I’m excited for my new writing space. At this very moment I’m typing with two candles on each side. Earlier I wrote today’s journal entry by candlelight. And now I’m making my first real blog post in over a week. So, score!

Now, let’s hope I am inspired by this time tomorrow to write my printed column…at this point I don’t really have any great idea. But, something will creep in my head I’m sure.
