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.

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.

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

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

Time to take it all off.

  It's that time of the month again. Time to go to the salon and get the wig flipped. As is usual, as of late, I am contemplating what would happen if I dropped the pretense that fake hair affords me.  What would happen if I stopped wearing wigs / weaves totally.  I would like … Continue reading Time to take it all off.

Walking the Walk

So many other clichés come to mind - practicing what you preach, take care of your own back yard before you tell someone else how to take care of theirs, etc.  They all mean the same thing, take care of your own business first.  I want to confess, I've been doing a lot of "do … Continue reading Walking the Walk

Beauty of a Woman Blog Fest, 2014 – This one’s for YOU!

Think of yourself naked.  Or, if you're somewhere you can do so and not be arrested, get naked and look at yourself in a mirror.  If you're like most women I know, you cringed at the thought and absolutely refused to do the act. All your (perceived) physical flaws reared their "ugly" heads; that inner … Continue reading Beauty of a Woman Blog Fest, 2014 – This one’s for YOU!
