For those taking on the challenge. Bon chance!
Okay, so I know that right now quite a lot of folks are trying to write a grand total of fifty thousand words. Some are stuck, while some feel they’re going nowhere. If you’re attempting to write a novel during the month of November, here’s some writing advice:
Carpe Diem! Seize the day!
Some venerate their dreams by waiting years for the just-right circumstance, the just-right alignment of opportunity. If that produces something worthwhile, then by all means, do it that way. But more often than not—from what I’ve seen—it doesn’t. I don’t believe the best way to honor my dreams is to anxiously wait, hoping for the […]
What stage are you in?
When did we become a therapy society? When did it become easier to tell everyone about our troubles, but not our successes? Do you ever think about that? But what is happiness? How can we attain it? Well… the idea is that happiness cannot be pursued. It’s not something you receive or stumble upon. It’s […]
Well done fellow blogger. You took the words out of my mouth.
So, you’ve decided to start a blog. Or you already have one, but you just don’t know what to do with it. Well, you’ve come to the right place. But, first of all, I’d like to tell you that there is no recipe, no how-to guide. Blogging is, like writing, an art, which makes it […]
Beautifully written. Expressed in just the right ways. Sara 👸
In my lifetime the world has changed rapidly. The world is evolving faster every day. And every aspect of our lives changes according to this new world, according to our vision of the world. Love, or the way we perceive it, has changed as well. Some say that we have grown to enjoy being alone, […]
I cried inside. That was me with my son at a younger age. Thank you Mer and happy anniversary!~Sara
On the 18th of February 2002, I took my 5-year-old daughter and a couple of garbage bags full of our stuff far away from my abusive ex. We left that fucking monster for good. We started over basically from scratch. Makes me that much stronger Makes me work a little bit harder It makes me […]
Never give up, never give in. Keep going until the end. ~Sara
One of my favorite poems is Invictus by William Ernest Henley. The story behind the poem is also impressive: Henley contracted tuberculosis of the bone when he was 13. At age 17, physicians had to amputate one of his legs. Yet he wrote that: “In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor […]
It’s been a rainy August. Thank God I have music to keep me upbeat. I have been tackling a few projects that have kept me busy. Plus my mind has been whirling with thoughts about my personal goals.
I haven’t really posted a lot on my social media except with my blog posts. I am starting to wonder if my parents are right that I have too many social media destractions. I almost want to take a break altogether and concentrate on my writing. I mean people have my email so they can check on me that way.
Trust me I have not hit a robot or ghost status. I am just looking for more. I changed my LinkedIn headline because I wanted it to be more professional.
I am also trying to figure out my personal identity and what my life can be in the future. I understand what it is like to be secluded from everyone I know. I mean I have lived in the shadow and went along with life’s plan. I did not expect to get married. In fact I thought that part had come and gone. Was I looking to live an ordinary life? I didn’t have the confidence to believe in myself that I could do anything. I was just a wallflower watching the world go by.
My last post was more like me. Describing what my healing process has been like. Has it made me stronger? Yes! Have I turned over a new leaf? Yes many leaves in fact. I have learned to listen more and talk less. That maybe hard to believe, but I choose when I communicate things. Since my internet access is different than in the States I had to get used to not being able to be connecting like I am used to. Does anyone out there understand how I am feeling?
