    Creative in a State of Emergency

    Right now, you can’t escape the news about COVID-19. No matter how much you want to. And being creative in a literal state of emergency? How the hell can that happen? Well, for me, getting back to writing has been a bit of a balm on my worried soul. I already have anxiety disorders, and I’ll be honest when I say this whole time isn’t helping that. Writing, however, does. It allows me to get out of my head, to get out of this current time. The second novel in the Rock and Roll Angel trilogy (which you’ll understand why it’s called that when it is done) is set in…

    Feeling Happy

    It’s been a while since I’ve really been able to say that I am feeling happy. But here I am. Things are finally to the point where I can start new endeavours and continue with ones I’ve had going before. It’s been a long time since I’ve truly felt this way. I’m not going to say that life is perfect, but it isn’t dragging me down as hard as it has been the past while. I’ve had some news that worries me, but until I know more about it, I’m going to try not to worry obsessively over it all. I’ve also been letting go of things that actively hurt…

    Gone Creating…

    I have been gone for a while. Between the usual end of year stuff and dealing with the umpteen million appointments that come with it, I have been concentrating on creating.  It’s not always writing. I draw, I sing, I (try to) dance. My many interests keep me creating most of the time.  So, while I’m not blogging, I am still working on things behind the scenes.  Hopefully I  will have something up, holiday fiction wise, this year. I have a few ideas, I just need to sit down and work on them. I think that may be the other big creative issue – so many ideas, so little time…

    Books Books Books

    Over the weekend, I did a thing. Well, it comes out August 1, but I announced to the world, in my own low-key way, that A Desert Song is finally available. I know I have a lot more to do, and I will be amping up the noise in the next while but I wanted to do this on my own terms, my own pace. So, I need to get writing the other books soon, don’t I? Hopefully my life is finally going to settle down into a pattern that I can get things done, now that bad days brought to you by Adobe are pretty much over with. The…

    Feelings

    I don’t usually like talking about my feelings. I really don’t. I can do it in clinical terms, but really talking about how I’m feeling is, and has always been a hard thing for me. But today, I need to. I have been through a lot in my life, and talking recently about things that have gone on in the past, well it’s brought back a lot of feelings that I need to talk about. When I was younger, hell, even to this day, but what I’m talking about is the past, I have been bullied. I have been told to just give up, give in and just ignore them…
