About Me

I'm a writer and library worker who wears many hats. I believe a good book and a good piece of chocolate are the keys to a happy life.

She's Alive!

Well, sort of.
I have been spending a lot of time lately trying to re-create and re-invent myself to fit the curve balls life has thrown me. These nasty pitches have, unfortunately, taken quite a toll on my personal confidence and creativity. (as noted by the previous post and resulting silence)
It's been a lot like constructing Frankenstein's monster. The pieces come from some very strange places some times, and often don't look like they'd fit at all, but they are gradually coming together.
Am I the same person I was a year ago? No. Am I a better me? I hope so.
Am I writing again? Gradually. It's not an easy process but my creativity, whimsy, and spiritual wells that my writing draw upon are slowly refilling and showing signs of life. No big thunderstorms and lightening bolts yet- but it's coming.

Best news EVER!! (Said to the tune of Rapunzel in Tangled when she said Best Day EVER!)

I'm so so glad you are back at at. This is pretty ironic, because while I was at the store today, I picked something up for you based on something you posted on FB awhile back. : ) Good to think about you and then READ your words!! You are one of the few people in my life (although it may be at a distance) that gives me the courage to even think about writing! I'm so glad you are back at it, even if it is slowly. You rock! Tell hubby hi from us, too!! P.S. Watch your mail box... Still at the same address??
