I am more than a little irked at the concept that my followers could have been scammed or duped by a poser; I had not planned to start writing on my blog or become active on social media for another couple of months, because I am taking a long time to heal from a current chest and ear infection. I am very ill at the moment to the extent of being permanently exhausted.
However, I think that I should start again right now, when I am at my worst physically because it seems likely I am having more bad days than not and I am sick and tired of being sick and tired and not doing what I want to do in life, even the most sedentary of things.
I often struggle with the idea that I must always produce a poem or a short story for my blog, because this blog was created with creativity in mind. I was meant to use this as a portfolio of sorts; for my creative writing, photography and art, instead it has become more of a journal.
I think therefore, that this blog is likely to be 50/50 journal and creative outlet. Because I am going on a big journey spiritually, physically, mentally and hopefully career wise too.
My blog will show you more of me, my personal life, my art, my thoughts and feelings and I will try not to be too bias when I do so.
A lot of my day to day stuff will probably be talks about how I am trying to manage my mental health and disability whilst trying to be a productive creative and housewife/mother.
I will also talk about my medical journey, because it still is not entirely clear what it is I have, other than it seems to the doctors that I have around 4 different types of auto-immune disease, deafness, PTSD and potentially a serious neurological disorder too, which they are leaning more towards MS on, but irritatingly it has not been thoroughly confirmed yet. Sometimes they say yes, sometimes it’s again, no, it’s all presumption by my GP because I haven’t been tested yet.
I will talk about my past, if I feel it would be therapeutic at the time to do so.
I will discuss life with my pets and gardening, what little I can do there.
I will discuss most aspects of my life, whilst throwing in my poetry, songs, compositions, short stories, art, snippets and advice.
I am working on far too many stories at once, most of the time. I am also practising art, because I have an idea for a children’s picture book and I have also two ideas for comics. I don’t buy the fact that the comic industry is dead, sorry!
I have also learned recently that there are many people who like reading my reviews; I have had so many requests for reviews recently that I have considered to be more proactive in that. But I tend to review old stuff, because I am pretty slow to reaching out for current social trends. To me, something is a current social trend if it has been published or bought out within the last decade. Oh dear, well you see what I mean – non-fiction science aside that is.
I am one of these lame people who love the 50s & 80s and are waiting for a huge retro bash that will last a decade or more in fashion, movies and music. So you won’t find me any time soon, sporting the latest trend of anything that is currently major, if it is not retro based.
Personally I feel the best decades for fantasy were 1860s, 1870s, 1890s, 1950s, 1980s and 2000s, 2010s; I am a huge Lewis Carroll, George MacDonald, Frank L Baum, J.R.R Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Susan Hill, Stan Lee, Tim Burton, Stephen Spielberg, The Frouds, Colleen Doran and Neal Shusterman and oh so many more I better stop listing them= fan. This was just fantasy; don’t get me started on horror, Sci-fi and dystopia and lets not be picky between artists, writers and directors either!
There is a lot of people I have missed on the above list that deserves to be here! This is how I know; I really can’t sit back and say I have no idea what I post for my blog. I was just being too picky about what I should put. I didn’t think I should really put reviews and personal feelings towards other people’s work on my blog, but you know, if it keeps the blog active, then maybe I should start? At least it will give you an idea of how I became who I become; the kind of things that I devour for my hungry creative soul that made me produce, what I produced.
Until next time, happy reading!
