For Internationald Women’s Day, I would like to share a story about a woman who could connect the shapes in the sand to prehistoric time, but couldn’t connect with the scientific community during her own due to her gender. Meet Mary Anning.
Inspired by Ray Bradbury, I am about to embark on a 52 week creative writing adventure — and you’re invited.
This week, I cried at work. It was a day that started like any others — but pulled me into two completely different directions.
One of the biggest battles I encounter every day is inertia, the tendancy to do nothing or remain unchanged. Taking action and stepping outside our comfort zones can be . . . well, uncomfortable. But I found the phrase that pushes me into motion.
Does “one size fit all” ever fit? Ever? I grew tired of my complaining about not finding what I want. I am more creative than that. Maybe the solution isn’t in Googling — but in my own craftiness. Perhaps it is time to make my own.
The struggle, strive, conflict and problems of 2017 don’t evaporate when the ball drops tonight. Want a kick-ass 2018? Start with a kick-ass you!
