New Year, New You; isn’t that what the saying is? Today’s writing challenge kind of fits in with that. Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-ChangesYou need to make a major change in your life. Do you make it all at once, cold turkey style, or incrementally? Well, it depends; if I’m being totally honest. If it’s a change that I’m going to like I’m on top of it and usually it’s all at once. If it’s a change that someone else wants me to make or I have no interest in I can drag that shit out for years. Change up my hair color = immediateQuit smoking (huge change) =Read More →

Todays post is simply a window that I could see myself looking out of. Something simple yet says so much just when thinking about the photograph. I find myself often staring out windows or into them and getting lost in what I see.Read More →

Bucket lists. Everybody has one. Some are written down and scheduled. Some are floating around in our heads with no rhyme or reason. I belong to the latter group. Traditionally everyone always wants to know what the top 10 items on a persons list are. I want to know, What’s the 11th item on your bucket list? Mine sounds simple, but yet bringing it to fruition isnt as easy at it seems. My 11th item is writing fulltime. I am writing but not quite fulltime. This particular list item is one that I want to accomplish before the end of this year. Ticking off thisRead More →

A recent comment made me stop and think and it was……“Shes too fat for that outfit.” You know what I say to that? FUCK YOU! Thats what I say to that. Who do people think my they are? Now granted Im not the most polite or nice person when I see an horrendous outfit BUT I do know when a line is too fragile to cross. I have no filter and if your outfit looks horrible Ill tell you. But that is just what it is. A comment about your dreadful outfit. Not your size. None of us fit into the “traditional” standard of beauty.Read More →

When we are little people tend to ask us, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My question is, why do people stop asking that? At what point in our getting older do people decide that we are took old to have fantasies about what we want to be when we grow up? Why do we have to grow up at all? I personally dont think that I should have to grow up. Its when we grow up that we get boring, stuffy and uninteresting. I prefer to keep buying coloring books, singing in the rain, making mud pies (although now theyRead More →

What a way to start out 2017. I checked on my KDP stats this morning and low and behold I sold my first e-book! It’s not a huge royalty check and it’s not going to make me rich, but it’s my first book! That small royalty feels amazing. That small royalty is what I am most proud of out of all the money I have ever earned in my 35 years on this planet. I am truly shocked at how something so small can make you feel so amazing. I woke up with a horrendous headache this morning and just wanted to stay in bed.Read More →

I’m giving you this letter because I want you to understand more about the medical condition called Misophonia which is also sometimes referred to as Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome or (4S). This disorder is being researched by the medical community and it is a condition that is thought to be a neurological disorder which means it is a problem that affects the body’s nervous system.  People like me who have Misophonia typically have strong negative emotional reactions, ranging from annoyance to extreme rage, to a variety of sounds many of which are associated with mouth and nasal sounds such as chewing, slurping, sniffling or breathing,Read More →
