About Me…

I’m an oldest, a favorite, a daughter, a sister, a mother, someone’s ex-wife.
I’m obsessive, indecisive, creative, a hard worker.
I’m feeling blue today.

I learned early in my life (3rd grade) that I could draw. I won a couple of awards in Jr. High and high school, but I was raised in a small town and becoming an artist never crossed my mind. It never occurred to me that there was a life outside the tiny part of the country I lived in. Oh, if my 40 year old self could go back and talk to my 15 year old self, my life would be so different I’m certain I wouldn’t recognize the person I would have become.
I don’t have a lot of regrets in the life I’ve lived so far. I have a son, a family that loves me, friends I’d hide bodies for, and with the exception of one, I’ve loved every job I’ve ever had.
Two years ago I lost the job that molded me into the person I am today. It – the owner – helped me see the potential that was me. The real me. My true self. That I was capable, smart, driven, had a voice that could be used. He was also the man who fired me, but I thanked him, told him that if not for him or his belief in me, I would have been a different person. It was true.
After what seemed like a lifetime of 12 to 14 hour days, I decided I’d earned a break (at the ripe old age of thirty-nine0. So I didn’t look for work right away instead I decided to write. And, oh, the writing I did.
I wrote like I’d worked. Threw myself into it not because I had delusions of grandeur, simply because it was something I enjoyed and loved. Not to meet a deadline, or to get recognition, or for someone else, or a paycheck, but something that brought me joy in a way few things in my life ever had.
I love to read, love the friendships formed and the places I go. I don’t have a genre of choice. All I need is someone to put pen to paper, to spin a good tale and I’m all in. 100%.

Where was I going with this? Oh, yeah, I was feeling down. Funny how written word, even my own, makes me feel better.
