I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth although it feels like it. My emotions have been all over place since being laid off. Let’s just say I sort of knew it was coming, but when it did, it still felt like a… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #86: These Last Six Days”

Journal Entry Type #85: If a Door Closes, Another One Opens

With the recent news of me being laid off due to COVID, I took a few days to myself to digest the information. It’s easy to freak out after losing a job, but there is comfort in knowing I’m not the only one. There… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #85: If a Door Closes, Another One Opens”

Journal Entry #84: Who Needs Sleep When You Have a Life to Live?

I’ve given up trying to stay on schedule since not working a 9-to-5 job. I’ve tried hard to wake up by 10 am and fall asleep by 1 am. I’m usually still up at 2 or 3 am and still having trouble falling asleep.… Continue Reading “Journal Entry #84: Who Needs Sleep When You Have a Life to Live?”

Journal Entry Type #83: Writing is a Journey

I got my edited version of my first story back. The good news is that it isn’t as labor intensive as I thought it might be. The bad news is, if you want to call it that, is I have to do another rewrite.… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #83: Writing is a Journey”

Journal Entry Type #82: A Good Reminder for Writers

Journal Entry Type #81: Balance is the Key to Life

Journal Entry #80: So, It’s International Women’s Day?

This year it took me several reminders that today was International Women’s Day. First, my partner, told me. Then, I got a text from a friend. Then, I saw Joe Biden speak about it on the news. Then, I read about it online. Then,… Continue Reading “Journal Entry #80: So, It’s International Women’s Day?”

Journal Entry Type #79: Forget My Life for a Day or Week but No More Than That!

I made the decision to go out in nature and do a little hiking today. I brought someone along with me so I couldn’t go as far and that was probably a good thing. I kept putting it off this week because working on… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #79: Forget My Life for a Day or Week but No More Than That!”

Journal Entry Type #78: I Don’t Know Where the Beginning, Middle, or End is, Do You?

My life isn’t as bad as the guy in the hourglass, but sometimes I do feel as if my life is spinning. It’s not spinning out of control but full of the same motions. By this repetitive motion over and over, I sometimes feel… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #78: I Don’t Know Where the Beginning, Middle, or End is, Do You?”

Journal Entry Type #77: Birthday Cards and Loud Kids

I spent last weekend going headstrong into my second novel. I decided to change it from first person to third person. Needless to say, I stayed up way too late, past midnight making the changes. I’ve been on a routine that resembles nothing when… Continue Reading “Journal Entry Type #77: Birthday Cards and Loud Kids”
