I’m in love

I’m in love I never could really say that about myself I’ve always been up tight and never wanted to seem like I was thinking of somebody I just came off harsh. Then I meant the man of my dreams that made me feel like I could do anything and be anybody and supported me through all my hardships. Gosh I don’t know how to explain love…


‘You are not alone’


Screen Shot 2014-06-11 at 9.46.32 AM Do you put your dirty feet up on the seats? A.S.S.

Today I’d like to talk about an important issue that affects us all. A growing epidemic that causes the needless suffering of millions of Americans every year. It’s called Acute Selfishness Syndrome.

Acute Selfishness Syndrome, or A.S.S., is a condition marked by low self-awareness, in which otherwise normal people temporarily seem to lose track of reality, and enter an alternate consciousness in which they believe they are the only people in the world.

Going into the PhD I had grand plans of world-changing research (don’t we all?). Since I’d managed my degree fine, I had the idea this would be OK too. Except I hadn’t worked when I was doing my degree; I was a full time student. And a PhD is so very much more than a degree.

Q and A – What do you read?


Today a question from L.R. Ryan, scriptwriter and author from Florida, who was kind enough to favourably review Song of the Sea God recently. You can take a look at Mr Ryan’s website and find out about his work here. If you have a question for me on writing, my book or anything else then please let me know in the comments below and I will do my best to answer in a future post.

I would like to know where your reading interests lie, when you are not busy writing such a good book as Song of the Sea God?

L.R Ryan, Florida.

780px-Carlo_Dolci_-_St_Catherine_Reading_a_Book_-_WGA06372Thanks L.R – great question. I think reading is a tremendously important thing for any writer – in fact I would go so far as to say that you should never trust a writer who doesn’t read!

I’ve always loved literature, it’s been a passion…

The fucked up life

I don’t know where to start being around myself can be a hassle since three days ago. Found out after 3 years of claiming somebody to have fathered a child with me it was a lie and actually got pregnant by a one stand guy lord the crazy shit when I called him. Talking to D as he called me anything but great mother no matter what I tried to say hurt I can’t live the burden so I just deleted him out of her life completely. Her real father wants nothing to do with her it sucks and my current boyfriend is awesome and understanding haven’t even told him this shit yet. I’m ready to take my daughter and move back to college this Jacksonville place has nothing for me. God I have screwed up bad and all I can ask for is forgiveness. I repent . Lord I need guidance my heart is wry and full of pain this puts me in a dark spot in life I just don’t wanna cause harm to anybody anymore death would be a easy route out but I never take it easy. The MKM theory.
