Rose Meets World: Living in the Galaxy of Possibilities #1  

For the next 36 weeks, I’ll be using my Thursday posts to respond to Natacha Guyot’s blog series A Galaxy of Possibilities. For week one, Natacha introduced her series and posed these questions: Did you ever write in the Star Wars universe? When I was a child I made up Star Wars stories, but I … Continue reading

The Redefining Disability Awareness Challenge

I got this idea from Marci’s 30 Days of Mental Illness Awareness Challenge.  I was thinking that some of the questions could apply to more than just mental illness, but others might not. So, I recommend checking out Marci’s challenge if you’re interested in mental health awareness  and my questions don’t float your boat.   … Continue reading

Sunday Update: ROW80 and Redefining Disability — 7/13/14

  ROW80 I didn’t make any progress on the goals I made out for round three this week. I did write  about 15,000 words of stream of consciousness journaling/notes and another 5000 words or so of new character development to fix the problems I alluded to in Wednesday’s check in on my fiction projects. I’m … Continue reading

Sunday Update: July 6, 2014

  There’s no ROW 80 check-in this week. The new around begins tomorrow, but I have some update-y things to cover, and I didn’t do one last week.

SOCS: I Am Not Your Inspiration

Note: this post is written stream of consciousness style, and was composed in Dragon NaturallySpeaking. There are probably going to be weird errors, and I ramble. Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is “body.” The first thing I thought about was my arms. I have had a lot of problems with them over the last … Continue reading

Redefining Disability: An Interactive Blogging Project

What is Redefining Disability? Redefining Disability is an interactive blogging project I developed in order to promote better representation for people with disabilities in the media.

Sunday Update: ROW 80 and Redefining Disability For Writers

  ROW80   I can’t believe this round is almost over.  I’ve been having a hard time keeping my head above water.  I was sick for several weeks, got better, and then sick again, so I feel like I missed a lot of what’s been going in the blogosphere, particularly with ROW 80 bloggers.  I’m … Continue reading

Writing 101 Day 12: Redefining Disability: The Next Generation

I had to laugh at today’s Writing 101 assignment. It’s to “write a post that is rooted in a real-world conversation.” Well, just about every post on this blog is rooted in a real-world conversation.  I can’t really manufacture stylized fiction on demand, either.  What came to mind today was an exchange of comments between … Continue reading
