A day in the life…


I don't know how many times I have had writing mentors pound their (imaginary) podium with the number one advice that writer's MUST listen to. JUST WRITE, they lament endlessly. And my lazy writing soul kicks and screams in protest. I don't have anything to write about, this well is dry! Well, that is a…

Two Year Anniversary, A Journey Back in Time


Today is LiveSimplyKMM's 2nd Anniversary. It is crazy to think I've been blogging for two years now. This blog has only been public for probably a year, before that it was just for myself, friends, and family. But, then I decided it was time to join the blogosphere and break out of my shell. It…

Long lost friends


Have you ever read a story and felt like you knew an intimate part of the author? In sharing their ideas and characters with us, authors build a bond of unspoken friendship.

A Journey with Shakespeare


Why, hellooooo there. I don't think I have ever gone on this long of a hiatus since I started my blog.

Tomorrow I end my battle with these classes…

Eat, Pray, Love, [write]


One of my favorite books of all time is "Eat, Pray, Love." When I first picked up this book I was really unsure if I would like it, let alone that it would have a great impact on my life. That all sounds like really grand statements I am sure, but I wholeheartedly mean them.…

My Originality Conflict


My book list is constantly growing. In fact, it is ridiculous. I am constantly scribbling down books professors suggest or ramble off during class, as well as things I come across in my reading for my english classes, blog book reviews, and my own avid curiosity to find good reads. But then I read something today…
