A Day in the Life of author James Mace
Though I make a comfortable living as an author, my daily life may not be quite what one envisions when they think of the stereotypical writer. I do live by myself in a decent house; however, while it is commonly thought that authors are introverted and sometimes reclusive by nature, I find that I am the exact opposite. A friend told me once that he cannot believe I’m a writer, because I’m the most outgoing person he…Continue

Go on - take at your Pinterest board, at the magnets on your fridge, at the coffee mugs replicating like rabbits in your cupboard: I reckon there is at least one version of Carpe Diem in the lot. Scattered about in forms tangible and virtual are quotes admonishing you to live life to fullest, every day, for you never know when it may be your last. Me?

I HATE EVERYBODY… STARTING WITH ME: A SHOCKING BOOK REVIEW
Joan Rivers is a woman whose comfort zone is being outrageous. What reviewer in her fifties wouldn’t find that at least a little bit appealing? Growing up female in the middle of the last century, we were socialized to be nice, to be kind, to be supportive, and above all, not to make waves. There’s something compelling about a woman who took none of that to heart, whose basic attitude is “screw kindness” and who, instead,…Continue

The best of times.
She has a job which requires her to be on her feet.
And she has a sprained ankle.
The worst of times.

What can I say but mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . .
My Dad taught me manners.
I was a slow, but well-fed, learner.
Maybe I should explain . . .
Dad and I were on a cattle show tour.
I say, 'we' but I was mostly useless.
I had injured my hand in a grooming accident…Continue

Why is it we all seem to struggle so? Why so much dissatisfaction? We never seem quite satisfied with who we are, with what life brings, with where we are in ourselves. It’s almost as if, were we satisfied, we fear there’d be no more reason for us to live; as if the Creator might descend on some big burst of light and pluck us straight away:
“This one’s done! Beam him up, Scotty.”
I’ve had that bizarre fear myself, the fear that if I allow myself to feel satisfied, happy…

I leaned next to a beam like I normally do when I'm out to see a local show but Lisa and her gay friend kept poking me in the back and not letting me be a wallflower. That's what you do at concerts. You don't acutally dance at these ones. Alex2 is married to this Indian lady and when he visited there for the first time he got a hard-on from her 13 year-old neice who sat on his lap and leaned back against his chest.

Christmas has come and gone and with that, all of the gift money my husband and I received has been spent. I spent mine on a Kindle (the $79 one). My husband spent his on an MMORPG.
I know you’re asking yourself what that conglomeration of letters stand for. It stands for Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game. If you know someone who plays World of Warcraft, they are playing an MMORPG.
I have now become an MMORPG Widow.
My husband is a big geek who likes to…Continue

I am not however, anything else. I am not a retail manager. I have worked in retail since my teens, and outside of the three years I was a school teacher, it is the only thing I've been qualified to do "on paper" and…Continue
