Pondering pseudonyms and alter egos

Would it surprise you to read I have never listened to a Beyoncé song? I mean, on purpose. Her music is played here and there and everywhere, so she’s kind of hard to miss. 😉

Typically I’m a classic rock kinda gal, with some 80s and 90s soft rock or even a bit of pop thrown in.

Questions about blogging: Are you as curious as I am?

A lot has happened in my life recently that I typically don’t divulge on the blog. I could write about it, and in some instances, I may at some point. But writing is a strange creature, to me.

I’m sick to death of that topic.

Doesn’t mean I won’t finish it at all; I just need a break. It’s about writing and the challenges I faced during my climb out of the abyss in getting words out of my head and onto a screen. I love writing about writing…even if my actual writing is nothing but drivel. 😉

Derailment – the purpose

This is the continuation of Derailment – the abyss (part i).

part ii

As I’m climbing out of my pit, I ponder about my purpose in this life.

It’s a question I keep coming back to. (Never mind that some friends regularly beat me over the head with it.)
