I have never met Neil Gaiman, but through his words I have come to know him. His novels and short stories take me to other worlds and into the extraordinary lives of every day people. As a writer, his stories inspire me to reach beyond the safe and comfortable and write every crazy idea that wiggles its way into my mind. And pushs me to be a little braver about showing those stories to others.

Words are powerful, especially when they come from someone that you care for dearly. Or maybe there are just a few words that you love to say because of the way they sound or maybe because of the way it feels when they fly out of your mouth.

My favorite coffee shop is moving. The moment I heard, my heart sunk. A part of the city I have come to call home will be changing. In the weeks that followed the news I asked myself why I, why any of us, become so attached to places. When it moves locations, it will have the same owner, probably the same baristas, and yet, a part of it will be gone.

If you are anything like me, then your have a daily schedule that you follow. Mine is pretty simple. I have to go to classes, go to work, do at least one sudoku puzzle (to keep my mind fresh) feed my dog and myself, do my chores, read at least a chapter in a book, keep my space tidy, many other random things,  and finally write at least one page worth of content whether it be for class or for myself.

I haven’t finished a book in six months. I made it halfway through Tolkien’s The Silmarillion before I had to give up. Women Who Run with the Wolves gave me 20 pages before I reluctantly put it away. I’ve been trying to finish The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson since I met the author in November. I’m only on chapter nine. I want to read the wonderful books I’ve collected for years.
