A Work in Progress

3e4ace41fb0bd063ef53b32735a26d2fGood morning fellow humans… I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to tell everyone that there are now officially three poetry books for sale on Amazon. Click on the link to the right and it will take you to the page.

Also, I am entertaining the thought of self-publishing ‘Consequences’  despite my husband being strongly against it. He feels I should keep submitting to traditional publishers and agents.

I signed up to do NaNoWriMo this year against my better judgment and I totally shit the bed on it. I got about ten days in and was so busy with other things, that I didn’t keep up with my word count and not only that, I have just been in a negative type of mood and it is impacting me in a negative way.

I believe in energy, so I know that the reason all this negative shit is going on around me is a direct result of my state of mind.

My books aren’t selling and I totally get it. I didn’t do any serious marketing and also I don’t belong to any poetry groups or anything close to it, so no one knows I exist. That’s acceptable for now. I check my Amazon once a week.

In other news… I keep bumping up against resistance at the day job and I am taking it as my subconscious creating it because while it pays decent, it is a dead-end job. I will always only be an administrative assistant. It is one of the most non-creative positions I have had in my life. I mean, I could be creative, but I am micro-managed a lot, and you know how that goes.

In other, other news… I will have my Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts by January! 🙂 Super happy about that. I plan on taking a year off and then going after my Bachelor’s in Environmental Science.

So, since I am feeling the pull-down, I insist on recognizing it, accepting it, and then moving away from it. The longer I sit in my negative garbage, the more it affects me in a negative way.

Once this semester is over, I am going to take great steps to reclaim my sanity and begin journaling/meditating for at least thirty minutes a day. I know therein lies great peace and calm.

Do you have any holiday plans? How about NaNoWriMo… did you or are you participating?

Blessed Be. )O(

Poetry through Recovery – Out Now!

Hi everyone… Hope you had a great Halloween. Mine was awesome as I gave out candy and scared children with my creepy rabbit mask.

I am writing to let you know that Poetry through Recovery is now available. Yes! I am excited to bring this to you. It is essays and poetry, so a little different than my previous poetry books. If you download or purchase a copy, please leave a review. Reviews are how books climb the charts to that coveted #1 spot.

Thank you for continuing to subscribe to my blog here and as always thank you so much for taking the time to read my ramblings.

This is the third and final book in the Through Series as I am currently shopping around Consequences and working on another NaNoWriMo project! …always have to have a lot going on. 🙂

This past week I attended two places to sell and sign books which were nice experiences. The first was the Quakertown Alive! and the second was kind of last minute at the Barnes and Noble in Easton. It was a Halloween theme, but there weren’t enough writers, so they let me and a few others attend. Which worked out, because I met some great people, and that’s what it’s all about. Connecting with other humans. I missed the mark on getting into the Quakertown BookFest but only because I didn’t know about it. They put me on a list in case someone doesn’t show, so I have my fingers crossed.

Well, Happy All Saints Day if you’re Christian or All Hallows Day if you’re not. Keep up the great work. ❤
