I got derailed this weekend.
When a friend asked me to be a beta reader for some chapters he wrote, and I said yes, I didn’t know it was going to derail me from my own writing.
Except, it didn’t really.
Allow me to explain. Continue reading “Writing catharsis”
As some of you know, I am still She-Shed-less and in dire need of privacy, peace, solitude and a distraction-free space to call my own. As some of you also know, I escaped to mom’s. She has that, and more. ❤ Which is why I can now write a blog post about actual, physical proof that I did something writing related that is not a blog post. Hah.
Yesterday, I submitted a story I wrote years ago to a celebrated online magazine. Continue reading “Writing progress”
I used to be a flight attendant. ✈
A professional traveller.
A minimalist transatlantic stewardess.
So why is it when I pack for a short trip now, as a middle aged crazy chick, I pack like I’m going on a long-winded excursion to Antarctica? 😳

It feels like Friday today.
It’s not Friday…not that it matters, really.
I do what I do and I do it day by day by day by day. (Doug and the Slugs)
Today I had a bunch of hurdles preventing me from moving forward on multiple projects.

Disclaimer: I’m feeling sorry for myself. Don’t be rude or obnoxious in the comments, I’ll block you. None of my self-absorbedness in this post means I’m not anxious or active in other, more important things going on in my family, community and beyond. This post isn’t a tally of what I do for others; I don’t feel like justifying myself to anyone today. This is my blog and today, this is what flows out of my head and into my keyboard. Sorry not sorry.
Some days I feel like I’m living inside a bubble.
I don’t mean to imply the bubble is an isolated, lonely entity of solitude, because there isn’t much of that despite still staying home most of the time. I just mean the lack of external obligations has me more isolated than usual, and for longer than usual. Continue reading “Living in a bubble”
It was within the last year or so I created some mantras as a reminder to stay focused.
I’ve been struggling with focus recently, so I figured a revisit to my mantras was due.
There are two that deserve mention today.

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. My writing mindset has to be *on*. Plus it feels like my words need to rattle around in my brain a little before I can type them out and hurl them into the social internet. Continue reading “Questions about blogging: Are you as curious as I am?”
I noticed recently that my About page was a little out of date. Certain things I had written there were several years old, and now with the pandemic, well lets just say that a lot has changed.

I was driving with my daughter in the passenger seat yesterday when I saw it. Continue reading “The She Shed dream”
Do you know the difference between dissatisfied and unsatisfied?
I had to look it up myself. 😶 Continue reading “The difference between dis- or un-satisfied”
