Can-Ka No Rey I’ll be the first to admit, I’m weird. And that’s totally okay! You may judge me…but it’s likely not going to change my weirdness. Every January, I have this tradition. I begin listening to Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Series. And I do mean EVERY Year. Why? Hell if I know. It’s… Continue reading New Year-Old Traditions
Living with Monsters/Little Victories
Possible trigger warnings It's been a bit of time since I last blogged. Three days shy of an entire year. Obviously a lot has changed in our world. I'd like to say a lot has changed for me as well, but I have to think about that a little bit. The best way to think… Continue reading Living with Monsters/Little Victories
I know that I've really sucked at blogging as of late. It took me a while to adapt to my new job and the hours (and driving) that comes with it. As a family crisis counselor, I travel to family homes and assist them with intensive in-home therapy three times a week per family. I… Continue reading Hello Strangers!
I know that you were scared. I know that you keep worrying and stressing. Not writing is slowly killing you on the inside. But you've been here before and you've escaped the darkness, resolved to push through all your fears. You keep telling yourself that you aren't a writer, but you know deep down that… Continue reading I Know…
My Family Rocks
Making family time a priority shouldn't be difficult, but let's be realistic. It is hard. I work long hours and so does my husband. I've long since utilized Groupon in helping me plan a monthly family day. This includes making a big homemade breakfast, eating as a family at the table. Next comes an activity,… Continue reading My Family Rocks
I’ve Been Smacked in the Face By My Muse!
So for three long years my writing partner Will and I worked diligently on co-writing our epic fantasy series. We finished in January with book one. I've not been able to touch the dang book (book two) ever since. Oh, I tried. I definitely tried. And we even got a good 25K words in to… Continue reading I’ve Been Smacked in the Face By My Muse!
Going For It Will Cost You
Let’s say hypothetically, you know what you want. You know what you want to obtain. You know what you are reaching for. Okay? Let’s just say all that. (I hope it’s true.) Now, let’s go one step further and say that you are not going to stop until you get what you want or where… Continue reading Going For It Will Cost You
Winnie The Poo Said It Best
Yesterday I woke up, anxious and determined. I was going to go in to work and submit my resignation. I love my job. Working at a substance abuse facility with residents who are inmates and parolees at first was not exactly what I had in mind for my internship experience. However after a while I found… Continue reading Winnie The Poo Said It Best
Somtimes it does begin with a bang.
When I was three or four my Granny O. had these three small, fat books. They were my favorites and I learned to read using those books. I'll admit today when I go visit her I always fondly recall those books. Even though she doesn't live in the same home as when I stayed with her I still go to… Continue reading Somtimes it does begin with a bang.
The Fruits of the Spirit
July 2, 2014 Do you know what the fruits of the spirit entail? Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (For a better understand of each, click on the words). I am a woman in process. I know I'll never get each attribute of the Holy Spirit perfectly aligned and mastered. I… Continue reading The Fruits of the Spirit
