Writing progress

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”

Crisis averted…for now

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? 😳

Blogging from my outdoor office

It feels like Friday today.

It’s not Friday…not that it matters, really.

Living in a bubble

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.

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”

Step back to propel forward

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.

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. 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.
