The First PieceTop Story - September 2023
When Vocal first launched its challenge for the new Writers community, I was a lot more perturbed and perplexed than pleased. Like many of you fellow writers, this is a question I've been asked and pondered over for myself many times before. And the answer has always eluded me.
Keep Calm & Write On!
"The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another." - William James Throughout the never-ending topsy-turvy fiasco that is my life, one of the silver linings was that I always had something interesting to write about. I may never have had a kid or a fancy wedding, and I've never bought a house or landed a dream job, but I've had my share of interesting moments throughout the craziness that has been my life, and those interesting and sometimes devastating moments brought with them inspiration to tell a story.

Word Vomit Part II: July On My Mind
This is my second attempt at the #100 things challenge. I'll say it again.... Blame Judey for this! ;) The first time I did this unofficial challenge, it was mostly just to see what was so hard about it. With my ADHD and my quick typing, (and my mini-skirt sized thoughts taking the lead) it wasn't really that hard for me... but it was strange. And even more… it was immensely therapeutic. Despite the inane and self-deprecating focus my brain took, it still worked like a corkscrew on a stuck cork. Slowly at first and then BAM! Release! So, I decided to try it again. For therapy. I might keep trying. But it's okay if you all don't want to read it. Can't blame you. It's just the rubbish in my mind spilling out in word vomit form. But if you're so inclined, here is my second attempt at the #100 things in twenty minutes challenge... and heads up... it's completely unedited. Just the raw and free-form ramblings vomited out onto the screen. So yeah... good luck!
Composite Character: The Villain
The following is the true story of the night a customer attacked one of my baristas, and I intervened and backed him down. However, a recent writing assignment had me turn the antagonist into an amalgamation of several different people from my life. The prompt was called "The Composite Character."
