A Penny for your Thoughts: Peek Behind the Curtains

Actually, only the bedroom curtains and blinds are closed, but the other curtains are all wide open. You’d have to walk halfway into my yard to see inside and yes, I’d see you coming.


I’ve been wracking my brain for something to share all week long. It has been one crazy day after another. I blame the muggy heat and the full moon. Having fun on Twitter with Dr. J, Oleander, John Brownstone, Kayla, and many others has been keeping me sane this week as well. There’s more than one person I wanted to tell them they’re fucking nuts and need to shut their mouth.

Why am I sharing this? Because we all have these days, these weeks, these months. I’m not alone, and neither are you. Unfortunately, we can’t all have a fun-filled, slightly illegal, sex-fest like that episode in Hart of Dixie where Zoe gave in and slept with Wade, only to be found by George. (Oh, sorry, you haven’t watched the show? It’s a blast.)

This week I’ve been focusing on my mental health. Yes, twitter is fun with my tribe. They’re fun, intelligent people who aren’t afraid to ask questions or share the things going on in their mind. They take the time to do research on topics even when it isn’t writing-related. They’re trying to further people’s minds, sex education, and more. I am also fairly sure they wouldn’t call a company and start screaming at people, too. Unless it was warranted, but that’s very rare.

“Finish Your Shit!” – Chuck Wendig of Terrible Minds

I haven’t published anything since Public Affairs: a bundle of erotic tales . Yeah, that long ago. It’s breaking my heart, too. I can’t seem to get off my ass and finish my shit. (I really need that Chuck Wendig doll.) I’m always writing or rewriting. Even during this stressful week. And the ideas keep coming. I keep writing them down, hoping that I will get to them.

Perhaps I need a change of scenery. Or a kick in the ass. Or an intervention. Either way, I will take my time and get my stories written and do all the things I want to do. There is time. But for right this moment, I’m going to finish this coffee and then head out to the day job wearing my Slay All Day shirt. I hope everyone has a beautiful, stress-free, sunshiney day. XoXo

    Focusing on your mental health is super important. Life can be tough, and you need to look after number 1 otherwise you won’t be able to do all those other things. If it’s been a while since you published anything, so what? Who’s counting? Sometimes it’s good to get some downtime and let your mind recuperate ready for whatever’s next xxx

      Agreed. I just feel that I should be pushing myself harder, doing more, finishing more. I’m not satisfied at the day job, but I need it. I know what my priorities are, I just can’t seem to find that second wind for more than a short time in the evenings. 😥😘

    You are such an amazing person. I am beyond lucky to have you in my life. We are real together and that’s what counts. We support each other through it ALL. This, too, shall pass. xoxo
