Where have the words gone?

I'm beginning to think my Morning Pages routine has usurped my Blog in terms of where I go to process my life. Used to be I'd post my inner ramblings (edited of course) here whenever the words demanded release, or I needed to "think". Since entering the 8th month of daily Morning Pages, I've noticed … Continue reading Where have the words gone?

Ch…Ch….Ch…Changes

Yesterday, between the hours of six and nine pm I did the following: upgraded this blog to a "personal" plan in order to transform it to a more proper Author's Blog (whatever the hell that is...) kicked my "satinsheetdiva" (oh, the follies of youth) name / persona to the curb, opting for the more author … Continue reading Ch…Ch….Ch…Changes

2:33 AM – Deja Vu

Hey. This post is sponsored by our friends at Insomnia International, the Migraine Fairy Brigade, and Excedrine. Guess who's been awake since 2:30 AM? And if we take a stroll through the archives, I'd be willing to bet there are at least four other posts with similar times in their titles. Sigh. Since I'm up, … Continue reading 2:33 AM – Deja Vu

21 of 40 – I want to scream…

...to rage against the heavens, my language and attitude born of hell. I want to curse the day, to use my ire to rend the sky, letting lighting strike, the thunder shaking the very core of this Earth's foundations. I want to abdicate responsibility, to treat others as they have treated me with not a … Continue reading 21 of 40 – I want to scream…

20 of 40 – Half way there

Ohhhh, we're half-way there ohhhh oh, livin' on a prayer Take my hand, we'll make it I swear, Ohhhh oh, living on a prayer....

I wish … Continue reading 20 of 40 – Half way there

19 of 40 – Another scene

This is more of an excerpt of a scene, but it lit me up as I was writing it... “So how does all this work?” “Well, okay. There’s The Source. It is the energy or whatever that created everything. In human science, Its called The Big Bang, in human religions, Its usually called God. Alright, … Continue reading 19 of 40 – Another scene

18 of 40 – Another scene

Migraine Fairy is swooping in for a visit. I haven't had any water today (the first in two, maybe three weeks I didn't have any water, the third in two weeks that I didn't get 64 full ounces). There's also a tropical storm a'brewing in the Atlantic. Doesn't take much, just the flap of those … Continue reading 18 of 40 – Another scene

10 of 40 – One Step Closer to 50

Sigh. I am on the edge of 50.  I remember as a kid imagining what I'd be like at 21, but beyond that, I don't think I built any kind of fantasies, goals, or images of life beyond that golden age. Yet, here I sit (much to my health's dismay), twenty-eight years / sixty pounds … Continue reading 10 of 40 – One Step Closer to 50

7 of 40 – another quick scene.

She scaled the wall in her usual spot, noting that none of her trip wires or other safety features had been crossed.  Slipping in the window was academic.  She made quick work of taking off her weapons and then her clothes on the way to the shower.  The clothes went into a trash bag from … Continue reading 7 of 40 – another quick scene.

6 of 40

Another favorite part of a scene: “Start talking.” “Yeah, okay. What do you want to know?” “Don’t be foolish. I want to know why you’ve been following me, who you are and is there any reason for me not to kill you?” “Uh, well, don’t want you to kill me at all mostly because I … Continue reading 6 of 40
