PAIN RANT

Things have sort of calmed down for the meantime in regards to appointments and tests, but I’m currently in an overwhelmed state of mind.

I’m planning (and hoping) to have a procedure done called a Superior Hypogastric Plexus Block, where a needle will be inserted into my back to “reset” one of my nerves to see if it will reduce or even completely get rid of my chronic pain from Adenomyosis (don’t quote me on that… I do my best.) I’m not sure when I can have it done, or the logistics of it all yet, but it’s possibly the next step in my journey. Possibly. Continue reading “PAIN RANT”

WORK IN PROGRESS

Maybe life is a work in progress,

Slow to see results, miracles not abundant.

Maybe life is a lot of waiting and wishing,

Wading through the muddy water

Before you reach your dreams.

Maybe life is little moments strung together of joy and sadness, of waiting and then receiving.

Maybe, life is simply a jumbled, beautiful mess.

BACK AGAIN

Well, I’ve been MIA here on the blog. The dreaded colonoscopy happened. The recovery has been rough pain-wise (it seemed to have triggered a pain flare-up) and I’ve been so exhausted from it all. The good news is that I received good news (no endometriosis found!), so I feel very thankful for that. 🙂

Other than that, life stresses have distracted me from writing regularly. I can’t believe it’s been a week since I wrote a post. Not how I wanted this week to go, but every time I thought about writing, I wanted to, yet I didn’t. I know that as an aspiring writer, that’s not a very good thing. If I stop, I might not be able to get back on the horse again.

THE OCEAN & US

The ocean sparkled and glittered, calming waves flowing to and fro.

The sand was cold but nice under our feet, a slight breeze in the evening.

Falling sun in the sky surrounded by pink hues

Where we married, basically just us two.

Tuxedo and lace gown,

Nothing too fancy, imperfectness bonding us together. ❤

WRITE WHEN YOU CAN, FOR THE WORDS CAN QUICKLY DISAPPEAR

I think I’ve written a post or two before on this topic, but, here we go again. 🙂

One of the things I’ve found through trying to write my novel and my efforts at writing consistently (“consistently”) is that writer’s block is a very real and difficult thing.

Inspirational moments of intense, brilliant ideas sometimes are very few and far between. If you feel it, write it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.

If you can’t find the words, take a break. This is only my opinion, and for others this doesn’t work. Continue reading “WRITE WHEN YOU CAN, FOR THE WORDS CAN QUICKLY DISAPPEAR”

EDITING… THE TEDIOUS TASK

The progress of my novel so far is… well, better than when I began blogging a few months ago.

Apparently my novel has a mind of it’s own, or perhaps it’s just my mind lacking proper skill and determination.

The toughest part for me has been the editing. Oh, the editing… I’ve been editing the thing for over a year. A year! I know, I know. Writing takes time. But a year is just so long if you think about it.
