Today started like every work day. Well, ever since I have been working from home due to Covid-19. I did log onto the system later than I would have normally; perhaps, that was the start. I am being a bit melodramatic to sell the story I would assume. Actually, the morning went by pretty much … Continue reading Communication breakdown
I completed chapter two of my memoir and began chapter three this morning. Iam writing, and I came up with a new plan. Currently I have three works on the go with none of them completed. I havedecided to alternate between each novel: my memoir, the suspense/thriller noveland the sequel to The Crux. By … Continue reading A new plan
Well, this happened today (one of many works I haven't completed):Chapter 1When I was young, as far back as I remember, anyway, people used to ask me, "What's it like to be disabled." At that time, I used to answer, "I just am."A few years later, I would answer, "I don't know any difference, so … Continue reading People often asked me: a memoir
This lock-down is taking its toll on me and I need to express myself. I have been working from home since April 1st, 2020. Before then, I was off work due to a terrible cold and with the Covid-19 virus event happening, I was told to stay home. I am at high-risk with pre-existing conditions. … Continue reading This lock-down

One of the signs of depression is not doing what one enjoys doing, and I love to write. It … Continue reading How’s it working out for you?

This is a mental health check-in. Is the self-isolating getting you down? For the most part, I am doing okay. A lot of my friends think that I am an extrovert. I think I am more of an introvert-extrovert. An introvert-extrovert (ambivert), in case you don't know can be defined as: one who "is moderately … Continue reading Self isolation getting you down?
I had a “four day” weekend last weekend. It was just what I needed. I did errands on Friday: Blood work at the lab, and grocery shopping, on Saturday and Sunday I split the cleaning, and finally, on Monday cooked dinner and prepped a meal for tonight. I also reviewed my previous writing and edited … Continue reading A weekend in the life…
I am writing using a phone app. I brought my tablet, but I decided to use the phone. I brought the tablet so that I may work on the novel. I decided to write a blog post instead and the phone is easier to work from. It is strange how things occur sometimes. I have … Continue reading The need to be consistent in one’s writing time
I was watching one of my favourite shows, Doctor Who, last night and one character stated, and I am paraphrasing here, "When you're old and wiser, no one wants to listen to you." It got me thinking. Life rarely goes the way one expects. When you're younger, you think that school, and all its politics, … Continue reading Life is unexpected
