I am glad that I gave this a day, which added not only distance, but a better perspective. If I had written yesterday, I would have trounced this experience pretty soundly. Today, feeling as though the stress has finally been alleviated, mostly, I can offer a better opinion. Continue reading
If you look in the dictionary for the word “sieve” it will have a picture of my brain. Literally, there will be a picture of my brain with lots of holes glowing white where all of the information and memories have evidently leaked out. It really can be the only explanation as to why, when I posted about 5 days ago and said there would be an October Wrap Up later that day…and then there wasn’t. No, it’s now November 4, and here’s the October wrap up. I’m so glad my current motto is: better late than never! Continue reading
even when words evade
Let them rise from you
your heart, your soul, your brain
Take risks, pour out despair
Care to create your truth
for there’s no one else who can
Write about what matters to you
for your passion will show
Write about what you know
and what you don’t
Play in the land of make-believe
Create worlds you wish to visit
make them vividly real on paper.
But mostly dear writer,
Listen to criticism, take what’s true
but never let it own you
so you never write again.
The same for rejections.
Don’t reject yourself.
But never ever quit.
Signed, Someone Just Like You
I have visitors so I will be going on a short little road trip. My radio silence is because my visitors are already here, but I’m hoping to pop on every once in a while because the voice inside my head won’t be stilled (a good thing, despite how it might sound) and that voice always likes to know if you, in turn, like what she’s talking about. Forget about me, it’s all about the voice! 😉
I’ll try to post pictures as I travel. If I don’t post them here, check out my instagram feed.
Thanks as always. And thanks to those of you who’ve just started following me. I’ll be by shortly to visit you! 🙂

It feels extremely possible that I just wrote my June wrap-up, like–yesterday, and yet, here we are on the last day of July. I’m digging in my heels so that the summer doesn’t go any faster!
First off, I really felt like I was back in the blogisphere this month despite having two weeks where my body wanted to make me feel miserable, so yay, I was miserably happy?
And, I still seem to love the exclamation points! Woot! Continue reading
Warning: This story is not short on graphic language. If you are offended by such language, please do not continue. Thank you.
The very first item in a writer’s arsenal is words. We learn these words via everyday conversation and reading. Sometimes we might even look them up if we don’t know the meaning. Continue reading
