I want to be honest about my writing journey because it's part of the entire picture and has definitely been influenced by my depression. I also don't want to pretend and leave out parts of the story as it really defeats the purpose. And really if you go back far enough in my blog posts … Continue reading What kept me from properly launching my book?
I have two book edits left to do and I can’t manage to force myself to do them. As I previously mentioned, there’s been some ongoing family drama that’s really brought me down. I’ve been really struggling with it and it’s been a challenging time. But things are looking up on the horizon and I … Continue reading Self-Publishing Update
It’s been one year, four months and thirteen days since he broke it off and I’m still reeling. Not on the bedroom floor crying (anymore) – thank God – just obsessively thinking about him and his new girlfriend/lady in his life (I’m not sure what she really is and I’m too scared to ask). To … Continue reading A Jilted Bride Update
Lately, the thought of leaving town has occupied my mind more and more. Right now, I reside in Toronto, Canada and I can't help but think about escaping this town. But what are my reasons? Not only is the question "Is this it?" hounding me but the repetitiveness of living in the same city my … Continue reading Time to Leave Town?
Wow. So it's been a while. About 3 months to be more exact. Here's a short recap: In October, I printed/ordered books with Amazon CreateSpace with the intention of selling to friends and sending to local media. However after printing (and having friends read it) I realized there were mistakes. Yeah I know. How could … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback: 2015 Update, Depression & My Book
Coming around edit number five, I am realizing one important thing. My novel will never be perfect. Ever. Good maybe but never perfect. Even if I think it's perfect, other people won't (actually I can guarantee loads of people will hate it). And I hardly doubt at the end of this I'll be dancing around … Continue reading No Such Thing as Perfect
A good friend of mine was over today and we chatted about how far we had come since childhood. Her, shortly, to become a lawyer, and myself...an author? I laughed at the notion and avoided saying it aloud when she asked me to.So I beg the question. What makes you an author in 2014? I … Continue reading When can I call myself an Author?
This is fairly embarrassing for me to admit but no more than putting myself out there with my book will be, so what the hell. My last period of depression (not really sure how else to describe it) was accompanied by a strange desire to be famous and envy of today's celebrities. Not just any … Continue reading King Joffrey on Celebrity Culture
Well its been awhile. Okay its been a long time. Months. Eight months to be exact. Anyone following this blog is probably wondering what the hell? Or they've just stopped paying attention to my blog period, which is unfortunate obviously. Well, sadly I got really sick again. Depression hit me like an angry chimp. Not … Continue reading Where Have I Been?
At 27 I've tackled various projects, both personal and professional, and gone through one major change in career paths. And let me tell you I've been stressed and down in the dumps for one reason or another more than once during this time. But with A Hidden Life something's different. I'm not stressed. I do … Continue reading An Unsuspected Calm
