Breaking out…

There’s so many things I’ve always wanted to do with my life, besides getting married and having kids.  Some things I’ve accomplished.  Others, not so much.

Growing up, you’re always asked “what do you want to do?”  And for the longest time, it was an actress.  Something about TV and film fascinated me.  But it was looked down upon.

So then I thought of being one of those stewards aboard airplanes. I wanted to travel all over the world (or wherever the plane would take me, lol).  But that didn’t work out either.  Even though I was enrolled and was having such a great first day with my classes.

So I ended up doing a Word Processing Operator course.  I’m not dissing that profession, I really enjoyed it.  I did my 3-week on the job training in an office building in the downtown area and was learning so much from the people there.  Until I was finished my course and was seeking actual work.

I went everywhere I could think.  Dentist offices, law offices, even schools.  Nada.

I ended up working at a fast-food place.  Not the most glamourous job, but at least most of the costumers made it worthwhile.

But I had dreamt of so much.  This wasn’t what I had seen myself doing when asked, “what do you want to do when you grow up?”

It took many years later that I would get to dabble into acting.  Mind you, it’s fanmade films, and all voluntary, but what an awesome experience.

So now, besides having done a bit of acting, I’ve also written and published a book (with 2 more on the way).

But what I’m so proud of (besides my kids), is that I was able to join in on a project for a music video from one of my favorite singers – Ben Haenow.

He won X-Factor 2014 and as soon as his first single came out, I had to buy a copy.  He’s got one of those voices that you just fall in love with.

Watch the video, stream and buy his new single If You’re Lonely, and see if you can find me, LOL.

Sending lots of love to anyone who needs it.  And remember, you\re never alone.

Until next time,,,

New Beginnings…

At least I hope so.

There’s times when I sit here for hours, with a few tabs open, and wonder what the hell I’m doing.

I should be writing.  And I have every intention on doing just that.  But here’s the thing, how can I get my funk back to writing (or at least finish what I’ve started) when I have no idea where I want either story to go or to end?

I find myself going to the closet bookstore and looking through the shelves to see what’s out there.  What is getting people’s attention.  And what people will actually buy to want to read.

I managed to publish one book back in 2013 (and a cliffhanger at that) and I have two books that I’ve managed to get at least a quarter of the way started.  But now I’ve found myself stuck.  How do other authors do it?  To keep their focus and to spit out two or three books in a year?  I can hardly manage to get one done.

Other authors I follow on twitter will actually say that it’s not an easy life.  And I believe them.  When I started this journey, I was imagining myself writing book after book, becoming a best seller, living down south somewhere (because the snow and cold is really getting on my nerves), and living the best life I could imagine.

In reality, I’m sitting at my kitchen table (because I have no office space), eating smarties and drinking a glass of chocolate milk, tweeting with friends and wondering what the hell I’m doing?

I know I can’t focus on being the next JK Rowling.  The best I can do is just be the best ME I can be.  And how can I really do that when I have no freaking idea who I am?

Whoa!!!  That was deep. LOL

I guess the only thing I can do for myself is to make a list of things I want to accomplish for each day.  Even if it’s just being able to just get out of bed.  It’s anything that will make me feel accomplished.

So here’s to new beginnings.  To writing more, and tweeting (or facebooking) less.  If possible.

Because let’s face it, with the end of 2019 just around the corner, I want to be able to say on January 1st that I’ve done something productive with my life this year.

Thank you for popping by.

Until next time,

Happy February!!

I know we’ve been into this month for the past 7 days, but hello February.

And looking back, the last time I posted in here was in November. That’s a bit of a break.  And it wasn’t intentional.  I really need to find things that’s interesting to write about.  I wonder if I should post a bit of pieces of what I write about?  Whether it’s short stories, poems, or something.

In the past I’ve asked my readers what they would like to see me write about.  Hence the reason for the long breaks in posts.  I suppose, if I had a general idea of what people find interesting, it would be easier on having something to write about.

I will not be posting about politics.  For one main reason, I hate it.  I find it brings out the worse in people.  So that’s off the table.

Actually, since November, we welcomed our new niece into the world.  Because she was a preemie, she had to stay in hospital for awhile.  But she’s home and doing awesomely.  I love being an aunt. And having just the two nieces, and a fur nephew Joey (my sisters cat), there’s no better feeling (other than being a mom of course, lol).

Now with school half way done for the year, I better start making plans for what to do on their off time.  We usually take the kids on a trip of sorts, camping usually.  This year might be a little different, can’t say what yet as we (hubby and I) haven’t really discussed things.

Then it’s another trip to Cuba.  Love that place, especially the people.  So I’m still crossing my fingers that happens this year.  Still waiting on the prices to drop more than what it is. 🙂

Of course I can’t forget Scifi on the Rock.  I’m NOT missing that convention.  Besides the guests (who are awesome this year), it’s a great mother-daughter weekend.  And it’s going to be wicked because we are dressing up.  Can’t say of what, going to leave that one for later.  But it will be a fun weekend.

I will have to leave this post as is for now.  I have some things to get done.  But I want to wish you all a great day.

Until next time.
