Bass Ackwards – still after all these years.

I've never had an easy time of telling when it was time to let something go. I tend to hold on to things way past their expiration date - things like feelings, people who aren't necessarily "good" for me, situations or jobs that are detrimental to my self growth; goals and dreams that I don't … Continue reading Bass Ackwards – still after all these years.

Not sure if you know this or not, but I'm working on my next writing project. It's a departure for me in that its non-fiction and there-fore is inspiring a different writing style than I'm used to. I am one of those writers who is led by my characters during the drafting phase - they … Continue reading Beta Test – Module One

Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

Ah, The Satin Sheet Diva Experience - the act of creation involves a certain amount of destruction.  I was surprised at first, when a bit of destruction showed up in my life.  It came in the opening line on a piece of paper that was no doubt, mass-produced, and not aimed at hurting my feelings … Continue reading Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

It’s about making room for my Muse to do His thing…

Part of healing involves getting passed your past. I didn't do a Father's Day post because my dad was a ghost of sorts.  My ex-husband, while a large part of my daughter's life now wasn't exactly present while we were married.  I didn't have strong, father figures in my childhood, so no tributes on my … Continue reading It’s about making room for my Muse to do His thing…

Juggling is so NOT my strong suit
