Welcome to my domain...if you dare...

Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

Tempting Tuesday....Need a Cool Down?

I think a little rinsing off is in order.  Oops, I think he missed a spot....looks like some extra hands are needed. :)

Manic Monday...Me Mental?

Slamming my hand against the annoying alarm buzzing in my ear, I growl with dread of the impending day.  MONDAY...UGH!  That alone causes a person to go mental and lately that's exactly how this one person feels; mental.  The last few weeks seem utterly foreign to me.  My cloudy mind of fog and disease; utterly bewildering me to save the least. 

Ok, so I'm rambling but hey if it helps me to sort out the chaos within my mind the better off I am and the people around me.  As tempting as it may seem, staying in bed and sleeping away the day offers no resolvement to my insanity. 

The solution involves writing about the snapping of one's neck or actually partaking in the inevitable event and since the latter is frowned upon, it's safe to say writing holds the key from my unfavorable brush with breaking the law. 

With that being said, a quick flare up of the computer hums like a symphony to my ears.  It beckons me with promise of instant gratification of sweet release which doesn't include the sexual kind oh but that can 'come' upon one's libido in an instant under the right conditions but we'll save that one for another day shall we?  Yeah...that's what I thought.  

Anyway, my salvation from my mental prison awaits me; thus, I must leave you for the time being.  But do not fear. I will be back and hopefully in a more stable mind frame.  If not, it's off with the head...preferably someone elses...heehee.  :)

Tempting Tuesday....Guitar Lessons Anyone?

Yeah, I do believe a little 'strummin' and 'pluckin' is in order for today. And can I get a request for 'Stairway to Heaven?'  I think I already hear the angels singing...or was that me squealing with delight? 

Oh, we may need a sound check...uh...nevermind. Everything is in correct working order.

Manic Monday...new beginnings with lack of control

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog.  I apologize for the neglect.  Yet, it's a new day and with that being said, I believe in new beginnings and vast opportunities over the horizon. 

The past few years have been a whirl wind of chaos, anxiety, and excitement all wrapped up into one huge ball of emotions.  While dealing with personal demons, college courses and exams, home life, and writing manuscripts, I've learned more of my inner strength and what I do and do not want or need within my life. 

I honestly can say that as I get older, the more simplified I love my life.  I don't want or need any drama and I don't need all the extra 'fluff' from the non essentials; such as things that don't make me happy or bring me fulfillment. 

With that being said, I try not to worry about things beyond my control as well.  As I recently obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education, doubts enter my mind pertaining to the job market for teachers within my state.  With so many teachers getting 'pink slips', there tends to bring a sense of concern regarding the lack of teaching positions available. 

I also fight the insecurities of writing the stories I love and achieving my goal of being a published author.  However, these frustrating bouts of doubt cannot hold a place within my daily life.  It's fruitless and waste of time.  It's true that I can't control what publishing agent or editor will love my stories but I can control how I deal with it and push forward towards my dream.

Life happens around us all the time.  Sure the good events elevate us on a new platform; yet, the bad events catapults us either further towards our goals or away from them.  It's how we deal with those 'not so great and uncontrollable moments' that determines how well we'll maneuver throughout this life and ultimately succeed.

Well, there you have it.  Yep, it's crazy right now for me but hey that's definitely the pot calling the kettle black there.  Anyway, I may not know what's around the bend in the road but I believe without a shadow of doubt that pushing on makes the curve in the road not seem so danger and unyielding at times. 

Have a great day everyone and God bless.
