I love my laptop. If there was a fire in my apartment building, I'd run inside and risk death just to get my laptop. It's where I keep all my writing and store all my thoughts. I love this laptop so much. I can't bear the thought of losing all these words and songs and films and dreams.
The forests are also happier when I use my laptop instead of fifty million notebooks to jot things down.
I also love my dear Scrivener. It was my Christmas present from myself to myself last year, and I've used it daily ever since. I know I can write without it, because I spent so long writing by hand and writing in Word before buying it, but Scrivener makes everything much better!
Have I convinced you already that Scrivener is the best? Cause it is.
Some other things I like to use when writing is WriteorDie.com and Inkarnate.com, not to even mention all the forums I stumble upon on a daily basis because of weird research. I've got a long list of all the most useful websites for writing fantasy in Evernote (another one of my favorite writing tool thingies) that I scroll through every now and then when I feel stuck or something.
Lists are wonderful.
I hope you enjoyed this little sales talk... 😜 What are some of your favorite writing tools?

The Actor W.C Fields once said “Never work with Children or Animals.” I wish I had listened to this advise when a client wanted a series of web spots that utilized a monkey. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. The time and cost that incurs when a monkey refuses to do what the client expects throws everything into complete chaos and disarray. Monkeys can be very mean and nasty little actors. This one kept smacking my camera lens and knocking over lights.
This was also a shoot that took some time to turn office employees with no experience in front of the camera into comedic actors. After a week of shooting I finally began to go through everything wondering what would be salvageable.
The client had contracted for three different stories to be produced and it was looking dicy. I mean our hairy little uncooperative devil was the center of each script. So we were going to have to rewrite scripts and reshoot everything or I would have to become a miracle worker and find a way to make it work to the CEO’s satisfaction.
The job is to figure out the answers to solve the problems for your clients and get that monkey off your back so you can move on to the next project.
Stuck as if caught in amber. It’s a tight space. Alone. Frustrated. The in between. Me, myself, the one I am, and the one I want to be. Trying to reach for more, be more, without loosing my hold on to what is important. It is a struggle, but it’s worth it. I know my captivity isn’t permanent, but is necessary. This isn’t my tomb, this enclosure, but my chrysalis. My doorway to becoming.

When you look at Rotterdam from above, it is as if a child with his Lego stones has tried to build all shapes that are possible. The city is built with buildings that are so varied that the view never gets boring. Squares, rectangles and curves. You will find it all in the most beautiful city of architecture in the Netherlands.

Here are four important questions you should ask yourself about your social media strategy:
1. Are you posting content that interests your audience?
Your ultimate goal is to find new leads and convert them into customers. If you see your audience is losing interest in your content, then it isn’t captivating. Everything you post should interest your readers.
2. Are you sacrificing quality for quantity?
Posting low-quality content only for consistency’s sake may cost you your audience’s interest and loyalty.
3. Are you over promoting?
If your content contains only promos, you’ll lose followers.
4. Is your frequency consistent with your audience’s expectations?
Every target audience is unique. Social media platforms require different frequencies of posting. There’s no magic number.

"People... just want somebody to hear them, and to acknowledge that they matter and what they're going through is important and deserves some recognition,” says Katie Arce, a Case Management Fellow for ASP's Greenbrier office. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After serving with ASP in high school and college, she chose to come back to the Appalachian region after she graduated for a simple reason: the people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"We get the opportunity to show people that it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, everybody needs a little help."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
