On Being Brave

Well it’s all out there now! This week I have been blogging very publicly, not just on this site, but yesterday I also revealed a second site called Simply Fierce. The response has been positive so far. I’m getting lots of support from family, friends and other readers. […]

And the Envelope Please . . .

It is time for my announcement! Though maybe you won’t think it’s as big as I made it out to be the other day, I am still very excited about it! I alluded to all of the recent changes in my life in that post which have allowed […]

Change is in the Air

I’m bringing my site back to what it was originally intended, a place where I can share my creativity, try new forms of writing, challenge myself to create new works of fiction, and really just focus on life as a creative human being … my life as a writer.

Hallelujah

Yes, I may have lingered in bed until 10:30 this morning but then I got up and threw in a load of laundry. Today I feel better. Today I will do all the things I wanted to do all week but was too weak and sick to accomplish. […]

Chick Sparking

Next week my sister and I have a plan to get back on track. We’re going to start walking after work and return to SparkPeople to start tracking our eating and exercise. Just in time for this lifestyle challenge, I received my first package from the Product Review […]
