Just a Thought on Novel Openings

Writing is, perhaps, one of the more difficult of the hobbies/jobs there is in the world today.  To me, it isn’t the character creation or plot invention or dialogue… it is the BEGINNING that always gives me pause.  Perhaps that says something terrible about me, but the beginning of a story should more than just…… Continue reading Just a Thought on Novel Openings

Financial Assistance Needed!

I have attended several charity events as a costumed character for several years, now!  As I recently have picked up several more hours worth of volunteer activities, I have lost some income from my job… which makes these trips even more expensive.

Strength and Inspiration (The Meditations)

A Conversation You Should Have With Your Significant Other

I am on a social app for women to anonymously talk about their bodies and such without male presence/awkwardness of face-to-face.  It is a very nice app, we have a sweet community!  Everyone is a precious little cupcake and it is just so nice! There is a section on the forums where girls (mostly young…… Continue reading A Conversation You Should Have With Your Significant Other

Spinning Wheels

Maybe it is the New Year.  Maybe 2016 was such a flaming pile of shit for me that where I am just feels like backsliding.  Actually, I’m not even moving.  I’m not getting better, not becoming a more whole, more fun person.  No betterment is happening where I am at currently. I mean, I just…… Continue reading Spinning Wheels
