I Want to Want to… by Deb Danielle

I have this vision. I am humming and cutting fresh herbs from the window box (where they grow all year round) and throwing them into a salad or some kind of fancy marinade. I have shopped for my cheese at a local farmer’s market and everything is free range and organic and gourmet. I grow the zucchini myself in a garden out back and also the tomato. I sip at…

Another Sucker…Learning the Hard Way Again by Deb Danielle

Well, I thought I’d covered “learning the hard way” last week and that this week I’d write something short and maybe even off-topic. But it turns out I’ve learned many things the hard way and should perhaps write a book on the subject. For now, here are are some of the less serious, but hard learned lessons from my life.

My Toughest Teacher by Deb Danielle

Here’s a story I’m not proud of, but it’s a good one as far as teachers and life lessons go… It was my second year at McGill University and I’d spent the first in frustration at not being able to take any “real” acting classes. Finally, I could take Fundamentals of Acting and I couldn’t wait. That first day we sat in a circle on orange/brown utility carpet that smelled…

Technological Travesty by Deb Danielle

My husband will say it’s just me, but I think we’re technologically challenged in our house. To be fair, in his case it’s by choice whereas in mine, it’s, well, just my nature. Today, for example, when my printer wouldn’t work, here’s what I did: I opened it and closed it, turned it on and off, turned the computer on and off, took the paper out and put it back…

Magazines and Magic by Deb Danielle

First let me say that newspapers are wonderful, in theory. They are often full of interesting, pertinent, well-written articles. But I find them physically unwieldy, their texture gives me the willies and I hate how the ink comes of on my fingers. And magazines? Magazines are a guilty pleasure, sure, but really they just make me want things I can’t have. Thinking about wanting things led me to wondering about…

An Open Letter to the Oppressor by Deb Danielle (sort of)

Dear Oppressor, We have banded together in protest of your ill treatment. We do not enjoy living in boxes, much less boxes in the basement under the stairs. And if you think it was an improvement to shove one box underneath the old TV, you are mistaken. We hear you sitting there in front of that TV with your bottle of beer and your potato chips. We hear Danielle walk…

How do you protect your writing time…or not? Hello Debs and readers, and welcome to my first blog. The lovely and talented Tish has asked me to fill in for her, so I am here as a guest.
