Be Still

Good Monday morning, friends! Take a few seconds to look at this short clip. Did it make you smile a little? Which one are you — the alert pup or the sleepy one? I bet you already know which one I am.

In our house, I’m the first one up every day. By the time my husband wakes up, I’ve been up for a couple hours talking to the Lord, writing, drinking coffee, hydrating, and eating breakfast. The second I hear him moving around upstairs, I have to contain my excitement. Part of me wants to dart upstairs to share everything that I’ve been thinking about while he slept, but I know that wouldn’t be fair. All he can muster in the wee hours are a hug and a kiss. I’ll take that though, but it’s so hard to be still.

Our prayer life can be like this, too. For…

My Sci Fi Mystery Screenplay ‘Space Drifter’ Wins 2017 Logline of the Year


926db6df-0337-4ea6-a24c-15bd8661782f (1).jpg

With all the excitement this year, writing novels, short stories, games and articles, I had forgotten that I had submitted a Logline for my sci fi screenplay ‘The Space Drifter‘ to the Wild Sound Festival site. As a gentle reminder, my screenplay had been recommended by the judges of the 2015 Cinequest Screenwriting Festival. I had registered the script with the Writers Guild of South Africa, but did not pursue getting it produced with everything I had on my plate this year.

It is therefore with much surprise that I received a communication this morning that the logline for Space Drifter had won an award for 2017 Logline of the Year for the CRIME/MYSTERY Festival. And so you don’t have to search among the others that also received awards, here’s a screenshot from the site:

Meet Better Twogether!!

Better Twogether

It doesn’t take much to motivate some folks. They are intrinsically excited to move forward with passion. Their vision is clear, and they remain focused on achieving their goals. There are others, however, who have the vision and the passion, but their fears outnumber the reasons why they should keep moving forward. They lack the courage to keep going because they don’t know where…

Rude Girl - Living in an Aspie World

Hello all my amazing readers and followers!

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday. I am back with another Favorite Friday questionnaire. I haven’t posted one in quite awhile because I wanted to find ways to be more organized with this series so I don’t have to repeat so many questions. I came up with an idea that I think will work for me. Although some will be repeated from my first two series as they were general questions, but I am going to do my series in categories. (ie: favorite foods and drinks, favorite music, favorite movies etc) Basically it will break down the questions into more detailed information and a series will focus on one subject. I got this idea from a website which I will bookmark and follow. Hopefully this makes sense, if not I am sure you will get the idea as I do…

Aria-Bella Rises

clear yes

The last couple of days have been big, tough ones but also very cleansing as well.

I finally, after almost four months, cleared up all of my pooches stuff – the stuff I couldn’t bear to put away from his last couple of days with us.

It was hard, gut-wrenching and full of tears but I also knew deep down where it was no longer staying quiet that in order to move on, I needed to do this. Didn’t make it any easier and even a day later, my eyes still drift to where those things were and they are no longer there and tears want to come.

But I was holding myself back, caught up in the storm of horror that the last 48 hours of his life had become. It was taking me back there every single time I caught a glimpse of them, which being in the…

Today’s Featured Blog…Diary of a Recovering Codependent!

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

It’s actually empowering when I use the tools of my recovery and watch how things unfold. Last night I practiced “staying on my side of the street” and it was so easy and refreshing.

I was expecting my boyfriend to come over but when we were texting, his texts were very terse and he said he was going to get something to eat and didn’t know if he was coming over. Now let me just say that in the almost three years that we have been together, he has NEVER gone to get something to eat before he comes over. We always eat together. My initial reaction was a feeling that he was upset with me. In the past, I would have worried and fretted over it. I would have even prodded him to tell me what was bothering him. But not last night!

Then he said he was hopping…
