Because I Am a Chicken


I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted in WP. I’ve been hiding out in FB land. I’m trying to get out there more. Sometimes I just get shy. It’s more like I have fear of rejection in me and that is why I walk away–from a LOT of things!

About 5 years ago, I self-published a book on Amazon. I gave the free promo for the week so people could buy. I got a lot of buyers, but no reviews. That just told me a lot about myself as a writer. I’m either awful, or the audience is just not ready for what stories I come up with in my head. Anyway…

I’m not very good with novels, per se–more like I’m good with novellas (I believe that’s what prose is called). And so, I created a three-part “novel”, all based on the same character–her name is Maya–and her experiences as to how she got to where she is now (present time being).

I was going to work on a sequel, but then I got a job and well, I’ve been really busy with work ever since. And the only reason why I even work is because 1. it’s nice to have some extra money, and 2. Insurance is expensive AF! It never used to be. I’m not political or anything. I mind my own business when it comes to religion and politics. It’s better that way. I like avoiding confrontation as much as possible. OK! So now that I sound like a wimp, let me continue.

I was going to post a chapter, but looking at the story (after not looking at this for a few years now), I can see why people lost interest. *sigh*

Well, since I’ve decided to take a hiatus from FB, maybe I can finally finish something.





Day 74

Day 74 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

As you know, I had a rough go in cyberspace last night, but I had a friend help me get through it.

I’m truly grateful for my friend, Tiki. We may be miles apart, but I can always rely on her. 

I’m also grateful for my husband who is always making me laugh. I feel better afterwards.

I’m grateful for good people in my life! 🙂

Day 72

9-10-16, Saturday.

Day 72 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Wow I can’t believe I’m up past 3:30. I had every intention of going to bed right after work. I guess if I worked 9 to 5, I’d have been in bed a long time ago. 2:30 to 11:00 is my 9 to 5. Most 9 to 5-ers go to bed around 9-ish, so 3:30-4:00 would be my 9 to 5 bedtime. I’m done rambling.

I’m grateful to go home, I’m grateful for my new job, I’m grateful for hope, and I’m grateful to those that constantly support me no matter what. 🙂

Day 71

Day 71 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, September 9th, 2016

I had a bit of a busy day at my first job, which is probably why I was able to get in 6,000 steps for the day. And then I went to my full time job. It was slow, but I’m grateful for quiet moments.

Something hit me during the first portion of my old job. About three co workers told me that so and so mentioned I had gotten a job. It sadly pains me that I can never trust them ever again.

I was also told I shouldn’t say anything as it would look bad against me. It really wouldn’t as I only say what I’m thinking and I never say anything to anyone if I don’t want anyone to know. Rumors are awful. And so I’m grateful for another eye opening moment.

Maybe after I finish this project, I can create a quietly grateful project. It will be learning how to keep quiet no matter how mad you get, and still talking about what you’re grateful for.

Well, I’m fading so, goodnight! 🙂

Day 70

Day 70 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

First, let me say how grateful I am for making it another 10 days on this challenge journey. I’m surprising myself in so many ways considering I never seem to stick with anything for too long.

Second, I cannot express enough how much I am grateful for my fitbit! It is challenging me to get up and move around more. Being an artist, you’re practically sitting in your office all day. I’m grateful I have a job to where I can move around, and another job to where I can move around on my breaks.

Third, I made it to 10,000 steps! A big WHOO HOO there!

And last, tonight at work at the Y, it wasn’t so bad, despite the fact I was cleaning. It was a pretty fast time. And it helped me to get in my steps! 🙂

Day 67

Day 67 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Today was a slow paced day since I had the day off from work. And so I am grateful for that.
I am also grateful for getting a blog in early this week. I am still stumped on the prompts, and that’s why it’s been little memoirs here and there. Still, I am grateful.

I must get up at 3:30, so I bid you goodnight! 🐙
