    Family Matters

    So I has based this post off a conversation I have with tlizzy on her post DAY 9: BLOGGING 101; GET INSPIRED BY THE NEIGHBOURS. As a few of may have guessed, I do not have much of a relationship with my mother.  She often told be as I was growing up and she didn’t want me because I’m a girl.  She only wanted my brother.  On top of that, she often tried to leave me places and tried to change the locks (only to fail since she was too lazy to get it right.)  I haven’t said much about my father since, it’s a bit of a sore subject.  Let me explain.…

    Three goals…

    Everyone has goals – no two people have the same goals. On top of that, no one has just three goals. I mean, I don’t. I have goals for thins blog, my career goals, writing goals, family goals and other goals. I really struggled with just listing three goals. But I did and I listed a few steps that I plan on taking to achieve these goals. So, without more blabbing, here they are à One – I want to become a published author within a year time. But, I know that isn’t just going to happen so I am going to get the ball rolling and get as close…

    Steph’s writing corner.

    Today’s Writing 101 assignment is all about where the magic happens – in other words, where the writing happens! I love sharing about my writing space. (It also asks questions about  writing habits, equipment and other things.  I will get to that in a few!) We had just moved into a new place and it had a sun room.  It was dead space for us for quite a while but them we decided to create an amazing place for work to happen! It has become my favorite place in the house.  We have two desks, a corner desk and then a small glass top desk (that we have had forever!)…

    The Reason I Write

    Writing is a very personal thing.  No two writers write for the same reason.  My reasons are different from the writer in the next blog over.  No two people with write the same.  So, why does someone write?  Well, i can’t say why Bob writes, but I can tell you why I write. To start off, like I have said many times before, I started writing while I was in eighth grade. I remember it clearly because we had a writing assignment.  Normally I struggled with it because I wasn’t a big fan on writing.  I didn’t get the point of it.  But this assignment was different.  It was a…

    Please don’t come to my house…

    My house isn’t horrible but it’s not spotless either.  It’s NO WHERE near a level of a hordes house (I grew up in one when I was a child).  My mother often blamed me for the mess because I didn’t clean up after myself or anyone in the house. It had nothing to do with her keeping everything of my brother’s (and no, he didn’t die.  He is still very much alive.) Or her lack of effort. I was the female unwanted child and it was my responsibility to keep the house clean. Do you know any seven year old how has to do that? Anyway, I digress, but please…
