Hello! One of my latest announcements is that I’m starting a new Facebook group for both Medium writers and publishers to connect. I encourage you to check that out. Find out more information here (comping soon).
It’s true. I haven’t done my dishes yet. The sad thing, is, I don’t even have children. People with families might not think living a life of a writer is a legitimate excuse. After I finish this article, I will do them. I promise.
The obsession to come out of copywriter hiding and have a few pieces with my name haunts me. It’s true. Since 2005, I wrote thousands of content pieces, and you wouldn’t know it. Most of it’s floating out on the Web, and I would have to use Copyscape to find it.
The few bylines I do…
It’s true. I haven’t done my dishes for days. The sad thing, is, I don’t even have children. I live alone and being busy writing in addition to working about 30–40 hours as a delivery driver is my main reason for neglecting my house duties. After I finish this article, I will do them. I promise.
The rest of this story is on A Life of a Writer, which is one of my Medium publications. I didn’t realize I made this version live, but that’s okay. If you want to see the rest of this article, you know where to find it. Read more >>

I spent most of my time ghostwriting since 2005, but my first-ever paid writing assignment was a creative non-fiction story published in Cup O’ Comfort for Christians. I still have faith in a higher power, but as you can see, my current writing is far different than this story was.
Writing creative non-fiction and journalistic or blog-style posts always seemed to come natural to me. However, I’m not ready to expose every detail of me like in “real life” and want to continue to conceal the identity of…
Hello, I searched on Facebook to see if there were any groups for writers who are looking for places to publish their work on Medium. I wasn’t sure which ones offered that service, so I decided to start a new one.
Of course, writers on Medium can make direct inquiries to the publications that you know of. However, some of us who just started on this platform might feel overwhelmed at the number of inquiries that established publications receive. Therefore, I’m opening up a new group to both writers and publishers just getting started. …
I've been thinking about how much we should share about what's going on in our lives. For me, however, choosing not to talk about everything that is wrong with my life all the time has helped me sometimes be less depressed.
Also, if someone else I know is chronically depressed with no motivation, and I'm depressed at the same time, I don't believe I'm much help to that person. For me, it's not about pretending I'm okay either. It's about enjoying the few moments of bliss I actually have in a day.
It is sad about Robin Williams. He actually…
This Mother’s Day, I’m spending the day working and alone. I don’t have children at age 47, but I will tell my mom I love her. However, I told my mom the day after my birthday (May 1) that I just need some time and space.
If you struggle with similar “mommy issues,” then I hope my story will help you spend half the amount of years I did feeling bad about myself. It’s time for both mothers and daughters to grow up.
I’m not sure what happened to me. New Year’s Day 2021, I wanted to enjoy the…
I originally wrote a long, long story of more than 2,000 words rated 18+ about how my coronavirus dating interruptus led me to be alone for a year. I will leave out most of the details that probably don’t matter do you. Also, I this time want to be able to include the video version of it. If I make it PG, then I can have You Tube post it here. Below, you’ll just get the highlights, and that’s all that’s in the video too.
Video version coming soon…please keep reading for now.
My interrupted dating during quarantine motivated me…
A few people including Buddha have been attributed to the quote “Happiness is a journey not a destination. “
I can’t recall who the original author of this quote is, but I believe it. A person can struggle with depression but still be overall happy — or at least content — with their lives.
I’ll go back and update that later. I did research on motivational speakers who struggle with depression. I’ve also known for a long time that part of the reason those speakers set out to motivate others is because they’ve been there. They’ve dealt with depression. They…
