Hello everyone…. I have been hard at work but yet it feels like I have gotten absolutely nothing done.  Guess it’s a good thing that writers can write in their mind even when it doesn’t get put on paper, lol.  Please go check out my latest blog posts in which I wrote about living in the moment that you are in and celebrating where you are in your life now, about watching the circle of people that you surround yourself with and protecting yourself from people who are against you and what you stand for, and also about not placing our opportunities in boxes to be put on a shelf and learning how to ask God for what it is we want in this life and knowing that we deserve all that it is we want out of it. 

So please show your support and check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and let me know what you think.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

On the new mythology of slender man.

As a mother writer, I was particularly bothered by multiple news stories showing up on my twitter feed about slender man.  It actually inspired me to read the ten commandments (the religious laws that ruled my childhood) to my daughter who is nine, with the hope that I'd arm her against this creepy storyline.  But really, it goes deeper than that. And I burned out on my faith as a young woman...  long story, but haven't gone back, except during times of fear, when I find myself praying for help, but that is another story...

Our girls and boys need a basic mythological force field to protect their forming minds from this nonsense.  As an imaginative mother, I'm tempted to work on plot lines with my daughter, and make our own stories about how to overcome a creature of this new mythology.  I don't think you can fight mythology with reason.  I think we need some new myths to counter this terrible creature born from the internet.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slender_Man

Cover Equivocations and Peer Counselors: All those hours, writing poems while the kids napped or late at night...so proud to have juggled raising them while still finding time to write. Announcing first poetry book publication and cover choice at Feral Mom; includes a link to a poem about rape, blame, and the way a peer counselor changed the way I thought about what happened that is live at Chaparral this week. Would love your support as I take on the subject in my poetry book, November Butterfly.

Okay so I am trying to get everything back on track and get myself motivated again.  I have come to the realization that I am not working nearly as hard as I should be or could be and I am looking to change that.  I have wasted far too much time trying to fit in with what others think my goals should be and know that I was never meant to be a part of the pack but rather standing out from them.  I have let my frustration at the lack of progression that I am seeing get the better of me and was failing to understand that I will wait for this dream to happen as long as it takes because that is my purpose in this world.  I am trying my best to lead by example for my daughter and implement in her not just the drive for her dream but that she was to put work into that driving force as well.  I was reminded of my initial influence in my writing career when Dr. Maya Angelou passed away last week and also of the fact that at some point you just have to understand that the fear will always be present.  You just can’t keep acting as if it’s not there and try to hide from that fear.  I understand with more clarity that with every victory that you achieve, there are battle scars that go along with them that you just have to embrace.  Fear cannot be sugarcoated or disguised as anything other than what it is. 

So please show your support and check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and let me know what you think.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!
