For the last two years, I’ve been on what I could only describe as a personal journey. Almost like a Hero’s Journey (or a Writer’s Journey 😉 ).
The beauty of the Hero’s Journey model is that it not only describes a pattern in myths and fairy tales, but it’s also an accurate map of the territory one must travel to become a writer or, for that matter, a human being.Christopher Vogler, The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers 3rd ed
I needed a reason to write and thought, why not take part in a coffee share? So, welcome visitors and HELLO to everyone still reading (I love you <3 ).
Long story short: I wanted to know what independence felt like, so I struck out on my own. I randomly visited parts of California and took a train ride through southern USA. Now, I’m both married to an amazing man and pregnant with our son. Life couldn’t be better!
It’s so easy to get distracted with life especially when it’s coming at you fast. You know: this bill and then the next; this latest hardship to the next; this house to the next; this job to the next.
Being an adult is crazy! I wouldn’t have noticed that I stopped writing if my husband hadn’t pointed it out.
So, here I am, full circle and trying to reconnect with my creativity. I’ll practically use anything as a reason to write these days and I’ve returned to the joys of reading (The Secret Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab has my attention as of late).
Anyway that’s it for now. I’ll see you around the blog 😀

Congratulations on the marriage and baby. You are truly blessed!
Thank you so much! I feel blessed 🙂
Welcome back to the Blog World! I recently returned after quite the hiatus, too, and am enjoying refamiliarizing myself with the community and process of blogging 🙂 Congratulations on your happy happenings while you were out there on your adventures! Hope to see you around!
Thank you 🙂
I’ve noticed a lot has been updated on this platform and am trying to soak it all in. But, like you, I’m starting small and falling in love with blogging and the community again.
