The Suicide Chronicles

March 26th, 2010 · 9 Comments · Book Writing

I started the second chapter of my book the other day and it’s a doozy!  In this chapter I give a brief history of just how I came to marry Ed and end up in the hospital while pregnant with Darren.  It’s impossible to talk about, even briefly, the events leading up to that point […]

A repost of sorts

March 20th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Book Writing, Ed's Health

I started this blog in 2006 thinking it would be a nice way to journal about my experiences here on the farm because I’ve never lived in the country and after we moved here I immediately became the laughing stock of my county.  I will never forget the look on our farmer’s face when I asked him […]

And so it begins

March 12th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Book Writing

When life is as crazy as it is someones around here, I can’t help but need things prioritized.  I knew at some point that I’d need to actually start actually writing, I mean that is the entire point, yes?  But I kept putting it off.  To begin writing would begin opening all those doors and, like […]

I’m not easy to shock

March 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Book Writing

Really, I’m not.  I like to say that I’m a pessimist because that way when something great happens it makes it all the better.  Such was the case yesterday. Charlene returned my call and after letting me know her manager said that so long as the hospital upper management gave permission, she’d love to allow […]

The women (and man!) of YAAPS

March 2nd, 2010 · No Comments · Book Writing

Back in the early beginnings of this new thing called the internet when few people had those huge monstrosities called computers, message boards were born.  Lists and groups of organized posts became threads for discussion, became tools for communicating, bonding, and learning.  This was a new frontier, open-ended space if you will, and it was […]

I can organize a kitchen but not my brain

March 1st, 2010 · No Comments · Book Writing

All those doors in the dark corners of my mind which hold back mountains of emotion, thoughts, memories – well they need to be opened.  As I sweep these thoughts into neatly organized piles and move them into their proper categories I’m able to deal with them and put them away for good.  At times […]

“Used with permission”

February 28th, 2010 · No Comments · Book Writing

I want to do this right.  The i’s need dotted and the t’s need crossed.  God knows I don’t need to be years into this project and learn that I’m getting sued by someone for using their name.  Since this is a true story and involves real-life heros, I feel it’s appropriate to give them […]

How much is this going to cost?

February 27th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Book Writing

My first order of business is to perform a few quick searches for tips on writing a book.  Oh my!  It’s not like I woke  up one day and thought, “I think I’ll become a writer.”  No, not at all.  Most of the sites that come up on these searches detail how to begin your […]

It’s what I’m supposed to do

February 26th, 2010 · No Comments · Book Writing

My poor family has been questioning my very existence after not posting in so long.  Isn’t it odd how we evolve?  Our projects and needs just evolve and things shift in and out of our reality, our blood.  I so needed to blog, to journal, to have an outlet when this started.  Moving to the […]
