Self-loathing and cathartic release through writing

It’s Monday afternoon as I type this and today, I’m feeling a little muted and tired. I’ve been writing a lot this past week and am almost finished part three of my series. It’s getting to the fun part now. The hard parts of the trauma dumping have been written. Now I just write complete…

Still chasing for that feeling, was it worth it?

It’s Monday morning as I type this. Another snowy and dark morning here in Edmonton. I’ve been awake since before five am and am sipping a cup of coffee. It’s cold in my condo and I’ve got the fireplace going, listening to acoustic folk music and love songs. The past month has been a whirlwind…

Devil That I Know Pt 1&2 – is finished!

Last night, I finally finished my book. All 301 pages and 94,000 words of it. A friend had offered to edit it for me since she read my other book about my mother’s death. The book she said, was so well written, that she cried for quite some time after. “I felt what you felt,”…

Early morning rain thoughts

I actually wrote this on Sunday and forgot to post it. It’s the end of the month already and as hard as it has been this year, a lot has happened in the past month. So much so that it’s been a bit over whelming. First of all, I met with my new geneticist and…

March 2022: monthly goal setting

It’s nearing the end of the day for March 1st as I write this, so you will read this tomorrow morning. But that’s okay. One day won’t hurt. A new month, means a new set of goals – and for this month, I’m going to make some changes. Good Reads Challenge In December, I decided…

It’s Monday morning (again, how does that keep happening?) and I just choked on my first sip of my coffee. I think it might be ‘one of those days’. It’s dark outside for this time of day and a little chilly. But the nice thing is that the days are getting a little longer and…

Goodreads recommendations: February 2022

It’s almost the end of February and I realized I didn’t share my monthly book suggestions with you. So, instead, I’ll share what books I have read and a brief summary. Some of you may recall my Good Reads challenge that I started in December 2020. The challenge was to find at least three sources…

Stranger things are happening here – norse mythology

The weekend flew by fast and it’s Monday morning. I’m currently sipping on my coffee and eating my toasted bagel in between writing this. I hadn’t planned on writing much this past weekend, but since I was still on bed rest – what else was I going to do? And I wound up writing all…
