Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

A to Z Challenge—S.K.-isms! C is for . . .



C is for Cluttivating. It means cultivating clutter. Example:

I love my clutter. Don’t want to lose my clutter. I want to add more to my collection and save it forever and ever. Nothing at all to do with those two tiny monsters running around my house, really. No, really (please note sarcasm). So in their honor, grrrr, I’m cluttivating.

*S.K.’s original.  You’re welcome.

    1. I'll convince the show executives that cluttivating toys is a smart investment. Or let them take it all and start from scratch...cause you know it will happen again lol

  3. Haha, I second what Brandon has said! But cluttivating can be good in moderation. There is something to be said for a stuffed attic or a room full of unusual treasures you've collected over time.

  5. My solution to clutter is usually putting more stuff in my hall closet. The other day I opened it and got hit on the head by something I hadn't been able to part with so now I know it's time to declutter LOL.

  6. I'm really bad with clutter. When I moved in December, I had to get rid of loads of unwanted things.

    1. I don't want to move anytime soon for the same reason. It would force me to spend time getting rid of things...right now I'm quite content blaming the kids for no time, lack of energy, and the actual "collections."

  10. I like that word. It's a great description of a house with kids. Here the clutter is dog toys and treats, stacks of paper and empty containers.

  25. Great word. Clutter scares me after what happened to a man in Dallas last week. I know hoarding and clutter are different, but I see it as a slippery slope kind of thing. haha.

    1. I'll have to look what happened. My clutter is just a large collection of toys my kids are attached to...I'm not YET a hoarder lol

  29. I'm a cyclic clutterer. Every once in a while everything gets swept out and my house takes on a Japanese serenity. Doesn't last long.
