Writers aren’t great people. I mean, look at the personal lives of the greats and you will come to the conclusion that all writers are bastards. And while a large portion of us are irredeemable, I still believe in doing the right thing. That’s why I’m writing this post on what stories are mine to […]

Building Boundaries As an Adult Saved My Writing

There is a laptop on the table, and above it, are hands holding a notebook with a pen poised to write. The text says "Building Boundaries As an Adult Saved My Writing" and there is a watermark for MarisaMohi.com.

Over the past year and a half or so, I’ve been focused on building boundaries as an adult. This has not only given me more time to work on my writing, but it has saved my mental health. This blog has been around for a while now, and even longer when you think about all […]

13 Ways to Live Like an Artist

There is a blurry coffee mug and plant in the foreground, and pens, a laptop, and hands writing in a notebook in the background. The image says "13 Ways to Live Like an Artist."

Why do we tend to feel like an inspired, creative life is so out of reach? It’s because choosing to live like an artist can often look like the opposite of the way most people live. And this tends to be why most artists feel like outsiders and normies feel like artists are weirdos. Your […]

Mature Friendships and Why You Need Them for Your Art

Two orange coffee mugs on a mat with a geometric pattern on a table with the text "Mature Friendships and Why You Need Them for Your Art" at the top.

Mature friendships are easy to make when you know what they require. And they’re also great for improving your art and […]

There's an englarged cheeseburger in the background. In the foreground is a semi-transparent white box with the text "Millennials are Healing Their Childhood Trauma with Bob's Burgers" and the Bob's Burgers logo.

It’s no secret that I’m a Bob’s Burgers fan. I have a Teddy keychain hanging on the vision board behind my altar and I even have an alarm on my phone that goes off every Sunday night to help me stop what I’m doing and settle in to watch. What can I say? Millennials are […]

Whatever You Are Not Changing You’re Choosing

A white coffee mug sits on a book on a porch rail in the foreground. There are trees and rolling green hills in the background. The text reads "Whatever You Are Not Changing You're Choosing."

Sometimes you want something new. Sometimes you feel like you can’t start just yet. You wanna wait for Monday. Everything’s gotta be just right, right? Well, guess what? Whatever you are not changing you’re choosing. Before we get into the meat and potatoes of this post, let’s talk about Rush for a second. Yes, Rush […]
