Bye-bye Belly.

Chest: 38",  Waist: 38",  Hips: "45",  thighs: 27" each. I have no idea what my weight is but it matters very little to this equation because with any kind of exercise, fat will be replaced by muscle which weighs more than fat so even though my over all weight will drop a bit, it won't … Continue reading Bye-bye Belly.

The Day I Became a Woman

HA! Yeah, no, I'm not about to tell you the heart warming tale of the day I "lost" my virginity - why do we use that particular word, "lost"?  I didn't misplace it, or put it down somewhere and forget where I'd left it.  Hmmm. Anyway, my first sexual encounter was hardly epic enough to … Continue reading The Day I Became a Woman

Going back to my Happy Place

Whew.  I have just about had it with the human race - AGAIN.  We don't seem to learn that hate, in all its various forms, and however ridiculously justified in people's minds, is NOT conducive to our continuation as a species. I'm not about to suggest we join hands, do the "kumbaya" deal and all, … Continue reading Going back to my Happy Place

Since We’re on the Subject

Yes, so...I don't know. Should I or shouldn't I? With all this talk about depression and such, I can't help but to be reminded of my experiences with it. I won't say I'm "cured" but that I have learned how to LIVE with it.  I wonder if adding my story to the already thousands out there … Continue reading Since We’re on the Subject

Divine Intervention (original March 28, 2013)

This originally appeared on my old website. Decided it had some good info in it so I'm re-posting it. 🙂 Enjoy! Do you believe in God? I’m the first to say I believe in a “higher” power but not as it’s represented in most (so called) organized religions.  Too much human tampering and interpretation and using … Continue reading Divine Intervention (original March 28, 2013)

That moment when you write the defining scene or lines of your novel.

 "I'm tired of men only loving me with their words, or their penises. I want... no, I deserve a man who loves me with his actions, his body, his words, his, well, everything. Because in case you hadn't noticed, I love with all I have, and all I do."  Jocelyn (heroine of my second WIP … Continue reading That moment when you write the defining scene or lines of your novel.

If I believed in Soul Mates

(a bit of fiction based on a whole lot of reality) My husband is over six feet tall, by about two inches or so. Probably weighs about 5 or six pounds over what he’d like to, but is still physically attractive to me – it’s the broad shoulders and muscled arms that get me every … Continue reading If I believed in Soul Mates

I Love You – Mod One Interlude

I had to take a step back (cliché) today as I realized I've heard those three words A LOT in the last six or so years.  From men.  More specifically from men who had decided they wanted to be in committed relationships with anyone but me, or were married and claimed that their marriages were SO bad, … Continue reading I Love You – Mod One Interlude

Is it really “hard” or is it that I just don’t want to do it?

(Mod One, day six) Today's contemplation - what do I really mean by "this is hard?"  As in difficult to accomplish.  Is it that the task I'm talking about is really difficult for me to do or is it more that I don't want to do it?  Claiming that something is intrinsically problematic or strenuous highlights … Continue reading Is it really “hard” or is it that I just don’t want to do it?

Beta Test – Module One

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
