Because It’s 2017

I chugged a Red Bull that my sister left in my fridge before I put Maggie down for a nap. For the first time I didn’t want to take a nap of my own, so I dealt with the dishwasher and the kitchen and tried to find some IKEA shelf hardware that I swore I bought but still can’t find anywhere in the house, and then I took out two...

Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?

I was in Golden for my friend’s wedding at the end of August. The weather was cool and gloomy and wonderful, the perfect atmospheric fodder for getting back into a legitimate writing routine. Often I forget that it’s been about two years since I stopped writing on the regular. Sometimes I look at my kid and think to myself that time really hasn’t passed all that fast. Despite what people...

Sharon Morris: My Spirit Mom

I’m just gonna get straight to this: Being a new mom was rough goings for me. I don’t know if I had any legit symptoms of PPD. I thought about it sometimes, but was convinced that things weren’t “that bad”. Of course the late nights and the aching tits and numb wrists and the horrible feeling of being tethered to the sound of that newborn gremlin cry and whatever else...

Week of Wardrobe: July 25th – July 31st, 2016

This is late, but Iv’e got my posts here. Recently I painted my nails a Canadian $10 bill shade of purple, and I was obviously trying to cater my outfits to that polish this week. Everything just has to match, IMO. This week was a bit daunting with the writing, because on Wednesday I went out and got printer ink for the printer that I USED to own, and didn’t...

Friday Night Track: “Everyday Is Halloween” – Ministry

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXtX9u7_6F8

So it’s technically Saturday but I stayed awake trying to write during the last couple hours of my Friday and I stayed awake through Friday night so it’s still technically Friday in my POV. This song came out three years before I was born, in 1984. I know I need to listen to more Ministry, but when I listen to this song I just get so overwhelmed by how good...

What A Lie, What A Life

One of the things that’s deterred me from “lifestyle blogging” is that need for perfection. Whenever I do make posts from my house or of my things, I typically shove all the clutter into one corner and fake myself a house that looks like the houses all the bloggers have. Since we’ve done renos and continued to live life between the renos, there have been fewer and fewer spots wherein...

WIP Moodboard: “The Wheel”

Since I’ve started complaining about my self-proclaimed “writer crisis”, I can freely admit that I haven’t done much to get out of my funk. I go through patches where I think that I could easily just stop writing. I’ve published a book. Readers have emailed me to tell me that my writing helped them feel less like garbage. Book blogs write nice reviews. I’ve achieved what I’ve wanted but I...
