The Curse of Superwoman

I ummed and ahhed about whether to post the link to this piece, mostly because it’s kinda personal, and left me feeling a little raw, if empowered. As those who have been reading my blog for a while probably know, I’ve been doing some soul searching, some rediscovering of my roots, some mining of my past and present in order to be more ‘me’. (for reminders, see here and here.) Those two posts don’t really capture everything, but basically, last year broke me, and this year I am working on putting myself back together – but not the ‘me’ that I feel like everyone expects, a more real and authentic ‘me’.

I know that’s not something some people struggle with, but I have. And so when the lovely, inspiring and soulful Beth Morey tagged me in a post asking for some guest bloggers while she took a break from the web after the birth of her delightful wee babe, I jumped at the chance. Beth always blows me away with her beautiful writing, and I wasn’t sure what I could bring to the table – but I wanted to challenge myself, to dig deep and be open, and so that is what I did.

So, click here and take a read if you want to, if it’s not up your alley, then that’s cool too.

A Few Assorted Things

Hey! Long time no blog right? I’ve been having a bit of a rough patch and everything is a tad hard right now. I’m in the final slog of my Post Grad Diploma (6 weeks to go!!! maybe less, I’m trying not to think about that too hard!). There isn’t an awful lot of the good writing stuff going on while I try to hold myself together and knock out final assignments, but there IS a light at the end of the tunnel and I can’t wait to get there!!!

So in the meantime, here are a couple things you might be interested in!

The lovely Leigh K. Hunt has Tijuana Nights, the first book in her Nights series, for free at Amazon right now! GO grab it quick because I think it closes really soon. 

Also, the Audio version of Baby Teeth is out now thanks to the awesome people at Dynamic Ram Audio Productions! If you have something creepy a kid has said to share, go comment on this post to have a chance to win your own copy!

And finally, I’m sharing a link for a post I’ve not read the entirety of, but it’s an interview with Beth Morey who is a very talented artist and writer. Her fierce determination to grow and become, and her passion for life are things I find really inspirational. Plus, she’s just a great person. 

I hope everyone else is doing great! I’m hoping to have some fun writing related stuff to share with you in the near future, but for now it’s back to the grindstone – hey, maybe I can finish these last assignments early? lol How can it almost be the end of August??
