Blogging Habits

You could split my blog into two basic categories: the somewhat curated, edited, and organized posts, the ones I put images in and consider for a bit, then schedule to post at a popular time to guarantee at least someone sees it when it comes out, and the other ones. The ones I put up... Continue Reading →

Artistic April: Something Old, Something New

April is here! And in typical Amber fashion, my afternoon nap lasted into the evening, so even if I'd wanted to make a post for the first of the month, it wouldn't have happened. I've been maintaining this habit of daily creativity for five months now.  I'd like to say I've changed, that I've grown... Continue Reading →

Freewriting: Musical Melancholy Soul

This rule doesn't apply to every art form I appreciate; sad books are traumatizing, and I often find myself disconnecting from sad scenes in movies or TV shows.

Well, not never. Sometimes I find a peaceful stop, a resolution that puts the rabbits to rest. Other times, I chase the... Continue Reading →

Stories

It's strange how easy it is to get attached to people who aren't real. Is it because the human race is far lonelier now than it ever has been? We don't have our large family/village groups anymore, so we bond to any personality we can. Or maybe it's nothing so depressing. Maybe some people are... Continue Reading →

Creativity vs. Innovation

So, this is on my calendar for March. I'm not sure what I think about this. Sometimes, the pressure to innovate, to do something no one has ever seen before, stifles creativity. You get so focused on doing something NEW, you lose why you're creating in the first place. Or, you're so focused on "no... Continue Reading →
