My Writing Process: There’s An Octopus On My Ceiling

6th August 2018

And so, I’ve been thinking about giving you guys a peek into my writing process, but I don’t have one. Here’s yet another piece I wrote, a few weeks ago now, about not writing.  I’m re-posting it here, because I wrote it, and it’s the truth. July 26th, 2018. The day before yesterday, I stayed up til 1 a.m. to write and hit publish on a piece for the #30Posts30Days challenge. (On Medium. The challenge was started by Frank McKinley.)…

I’m Not Angry Enough

23rd July 2018

I had plans this weekend.  I was going to write at least 3 blog posts (I don’t usually write blog posts ahead of time but I’m realizing I need to start), read for 24in48 readathon and drink lots of coffee and cider. Isla was spending the weekend with the localist grandparents, and I was going to GET SHIT DONE. Because my time management sucks, I’ve read a grand total of 7 books this year, and I need to stop wasting…

Please Don’t Tell Me To Enjoy My Kid

18th July 2018

The Dum Dum was a nostalgic addition courtesy of a recent care package from my mother.  It contains too many E numbers, and two handheld gamimg devices. Isla, at four, is apparently behind her peers in the use of gadgets  that are not…

Self-care & Cupcakes

9th July 2018

Funny story, I downloaded a meditation app.  It’s called Calm.  And I actually used it.  To meditate, find relaxation, hide, whatever.  This happened, a grand total of once.  So far. But let’s back up. My kid turned four.  And I met Katie from Fatty McCupcakes.  On the same day.  It was a groovy day. A day that included 20 cupcakes, 14 penguins, and a unicorn.  Or so we thought. The night before Isla’s birthday, Neil and I were wrapping Isla’s…

I Want To Be Like My Kid

20th June 2018

It’s been an interesting couple of days in the not so frosty North.  I wanted to write a letter to Neil about our fifth wedding anniversary, about how one day we got married and the next day Isla was nearly four and having her first dance recital. That’s exactly what happened. I was heavily pregnant for our first wedding anniversary.   We went to the zoo, I forgot my three gallons of ice-tea, and I actually ended up in the…
