The Colour of My Creativity
Orange is the colour of creativity. Castle-building fantasies. Great globs of world-building galaxies. Orange is the colour of spontaneity.
When You Find Your Creativity Flagging Diverge From the Norm
Every time I sit down to write, before my fingers even touch the keyboard, I rub my hands together maniacally. Like I'm the evil antagonist of my own story. I don't know why I do this. Maybe I'm trying to hone the ancient comedian writing gods and we all know how dark and twisted those folks are.
Is That A Pubic Hair In My Wine Glass? Or Am I Just Happy To Malbec?
I’m sitting on my patio, drinking a glass of wine, writing on my laptop and trying to seem fancy—not because I’m actually a fancy person but because I want my neighbours to think I’m a fancy person.
Why Is It That Boob Articles Always Go Viral?
It always happens this way. The article that took you 20 minutes to write has gone viral, and you have no idea why. At least, this is what happens to me every damn time.
Why Gym Class Was The Worst Class
The first gym teacher I remember having in school was Ms. Roberry. She was a fierce, solid woman with a greying buzzcut and bad knees. Actually, I don’t know if her knees were bad, but I do know they were awful to look at.
That Time I Was Caught Clowning Around
Did I ever tell you about my time spent clowning around? Who am I kidding? Of course, I haven’t. I keep that story close to the vest. My multicoured pokadot vest.
Sitting on my bedroom floor, I play with my dollies. I am six years old, and there is an entire universe unfolding before me. Barbie and Ken and what their life might become in this mansion perched upon pink plastic support beams. The Barbie Dream House.
I Write Humour Because I Get Sad Sometimes
Wait. Did I just become the creeper of my Vocal writing group? There are many things a writer like myself might want to go down in history for. Epic tomes like Atlas Shrugged or Moby Dick. World shattering articles about the economic crisis our small businesses face during these strange and challenging times. The prophetic works of Margaret Atwood in The Handmaid's Tale or the MaddAddam trilogy.
