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.

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”
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.

Thank you to each and every one of you who’s decided to follow my blog and read, like, and comment on my work. It truly means the world to me! I love to write.
Writing helps me to navigate life’s struggles, helps me to learn and grow, helps me to think more clearly, and, most of all… it helps me to feel better throughout my depression.
*Insert happy/celebratory things here!*
Also, the photo is a little bit inaccurate — I’m not eating cake. But how nice would that be?

Hello lovely followers – thank you again for stopping by and taking a peek at my little writings. I began this blog March 11th, so it’s been about 3 months. 30 may seem small, but it isn’t to me, not at all. 🙂 So, thank you!
The best thing as a writer is to hear positive feedback. It honestly makes my day. I get a little bit like “Miranda Sings” in her show on Netflix when I see a new notification light up here! (If you’ve seen that show, you know what I mean.) It feels so awesome! Continue reading “THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT A WRITER CAN GET & CELEBRATING 30 FOLLOWERS!”
So, I stumbled upon the following quote while searching quotes (one of my favorite things to do!) I found it incredibly inspiring, especially for someone like me who struggles with the most basic stuff. As long as you put in time every day to your work and passions, you’ll succeed in some way or another. I think keeping your expectations on the lower side helps, as well. If you over achieve, then you have something to be ecstatic about. 😀
“To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.”

Maybe if we lived remembering the thin line between life and death, we’d live differently…
