Challenge Day 2 – Bust, But…

Ha, ha... yeah, so "play a game, just for the fun of it."  What I had in mind was sitting down with my sister and having her teach me how to play Apples to Apples. We ended up talking for several hours - catching up on each other's lives since we don't talk that often.  … Continue reading Challenge Day 2 – Bust, But…

Day 1 Challenge – Done

June 1st - Wear an outfit you feel GREAT in. I had a small event tonight. I had my dress all pressed, cute sandals set out, and a quick splash of polish on my toe nails.

Wow, It’s Been a While.

I don't blog like I used to. I don't even write like I used to. That feverish, head down, nothing else matters until I get this story written type of writing. Used to fuel my weekdays and nights to exhaustion. Somewhere along the line I came to the realization that I had pumped out those … Continue reading Wow, It’s Been a While.

Wait, what?

A line taken directly from my work planner, April 10th,  "Write TFI!! Fuck YouTube & FB". On April 10th I didn't open YouTube or Facebook until lunch. I scrolled, watched, commented, liked for an hour while I ate my sandwich and chips, then closed the tabs as soon as my lunch hour was over.  Without … Continue reading Wait, what?

Dropping the Ball.

Juggling all the superficial shit to avoid my manuscript because somewhere between Breaking Point and Aphrodite's Twin, I lost my drive to write, finish, and publish my work. I'd done it, in relatively rapid succession for seven years straight. I was chasing a high of success that remained out of my reach.  I grew disillusioned. … Continue reading Dropping the Ball.

Wait. What? So, yeah. Here's what's been going on: Signed up … Continue reading Camp NaNo
