TSPTTWTR

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I interact on the internet. I’m mostly what is considered a Lurker. I watch, I read, I scan as people Twitter and Facebook and blog and chat and Reddit. I occasionally say something. Sometimes I say more than usual, but for the most part, I’m just scrolling […]

Games, Books, and ouch ouch ouch.

Games, Books, and ouch ouch ouch.

I took another week off from blogging. This time, it was kind of on purpose. And by kind of, I mean, I got off the computer for my own mental health and avoided social media a LOT. I still got on FB and liked some animal videos and funny memes my friends shared, but once […]

What happened to last week?

What happened to last week?

I told myself when I got back into writing that I would update the blog at least once a week. And then last week happened. Or, didn’t, as it were. A nose’s best friend, or worst nightmare? I’m going to blame the cold I got from my kids going back to school. Unfortunately, a minor […]

Writing and Space

Writing and Space

Don’t worry. I haven’t abandoned the blog again. I’m still around. I’ve been writing, but I’m not pushing it. Basically, I write a little bit here and there throughout the day, making a little bit of progress as I go. I’m okay with this. It’s easier for me while I get back into the habit […]

Nightmares, Panic attacks, and Words

I should be sleeping          The last couple of nights have been super fun in that OMG THIS IS TERRIFYING WAKE UP kind of way. So, ya know, not fun at all. The only problem with waking up is that the panic from the dreams follows me into wakefulness so I really […]

New Computer!

I finally got the new computer today! I’ve gotten it set up for myself and my family, though, to be honest, they’ll have to drag me away from the pretty screen and fast computing and finally getting words down without having to wait for the cursor to keep up, lol. The great thing about this […]

Time for more words

Getting back into writing is a relief. For too long my creative well was dry, but it slowly refilled itself. And I didn’t notice until I got my computer out one day and actually wrote words and wanted to write more. The best part is how the words are flowing. There’s very little hesitation in […]

Depression Sucks (and other truths)

There are so many facets to the depression I’ve been dealing with, but the main two are listed above. When you have chronic depression, a working computer and the country […]

NaNo Progress

NaNo has been incredibly slow going. BUT! But… I’ve written words. More words than I’ve written in a long time. Which still isn’t a lot, but is heartening. And, I’m learning to embrace the strikethrough in lieu of deleting. Even just words or sentences. Who knows when those might be useful? If I’m going to […]

NaNoWriMo is the word

I’ve had a hard time writing anything the last year. I’m not alone in this. One of the things I discovered about my own writing over the last few years is that the major theme in what I write is Hope. Hope for the future, for life, for love or happiness or both. But, with […]
