Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.

*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (
© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

It's all in the details...

The small things...whether I'm writing, drawing, painting, or taking a photo, I'm looking for the right 'thing'...one of those...

well, you know...the things I don't have words for...

I start with this big thing...

Then I work it out...
I play...and suddenly, it's there...
Some times I wind up with something so bare bones, it's almost silly that I had to go through so much to get there...

Part of the fun is the journey...

Don't forget to have a good time.

Your so right. "Part of the fun is the journey." When I'm going through hoops, trying to find the right sequence of words, I probably don't look as though I'm having fun...but I am. It's a labour of love, isn't it?
