I guess what I’m trying to get out is that I have fulfilling ways to spend my time, but there are always those in between moments of quiet that I haven’t quite settled myself with. I’ve written about those a lot here – I call them the ‘in between spaces’ of life.

I’m writing a romance
Currently we’re sitting at about 20,000 words, a decent count for just over a month’s work.
Lets get a lil angry about Misogyny
Once I entered into the corporate workforce, woof, it didn’t get much better. And trust, most men these days are fine, not perfect but fine. But some. Some? They can kiss my balls, my big fat female balls, which is exactly what they deserve.
Why do we place intellectual importance on sadness?
My current romance project has me thinking, why did I lean so heavily into my stories of grief and loss? Of pain and trials?

Girl, I’m watching too much Drag Race

Who knew that working out was good for you
Now I knew it would be hard. I sit at my computer for most of the day, having a desk job. Covid has meant that I only need to journey form one room to the other to get my work done, I have about 2 friends so best believe I’m not out clubbing every evening. I lead a pretty static lifestyle.
