Writing Priorities

I always start these posts thinking I’m going to be wise and insightful, but come off sounding whiny. I apologize in advance, but please know that I am using my very serious and very thoughtful voice and not my but life is so unfair! voice. I want to do more.

One Space or Two?

One Space or Two?

My mind was recently blown. Maybe this has happened to you? I was scrolling through Twitter and taking in my daily allotment of world atrocities, when I came across this tweet: I need to have a word with whoever taught academics to put two spaces after a period. — Nicole Hemmer (@pastpunditry) June 24, 2017 …

Morning Pages are a Morning Miracle

Tomorrow will be the three month mark for my morning pages.  On December 21 I started a morning routine of writing in my journal every single day.  Much to my surprise, I’ve only missed a handful of days which makes this my longest stretch of journaling ever!

Happy Birthday to Never Listless!

I am so excited that my little blog turns one year old today!  I remember when the idea to start a book blog came to me and I thought that it was just another flight of fancy (that happens to INFPs), but I’m still here!  I’ve started several blogs over the years in different niches, …
