When I was eight years old, my maternal grandmother gave me a typewriter and taught me how to type on it. Both of my grandmothers worked at Arizona State University back in the day. Anyway, g-ma Ethel was my first typing instructor and what she taught me that day stayed with me until my freshman… Continue reading Once Upon a Writer
Hey. I know. I've been quiet. I've had a lot going on in my life. I'll eventually get to the point in which I'll share it with the world, but for now, I need quiet. I need distance. I need solitude. I need peace. I haven't forgotten about you, though. I see you from afar.… Continue reading A Drop in Time
One day I realized I was letting that bitch take my creativity from me.... Something happened several years ago that resulted in the loss of friendships, the loss of someone I'd considered a brother, but at the same time helped me break free from a cycle of manipulation that, under different circumstances had I not just… Continue reading On Writing and Life…oh, and a New Book!

Okay, so.....I can't believe it's finally here and yet, I'm just now getting around to the damn post on my blog because that's… Continue reading And All Hell Breaks Loose!
So my dearest friend and soul sister, Kitty, decided to turn her playlist into a poem today. I have to admit, it's pretty stunning. Thusly, I have been challenged, along with the tagged group of fine writerly types. So here goes. Note: it's a little creepy, yet frighteningly accurate. Song titles in boldface. *ahem* Out… Continue reading Out of the Black
I'd started this post last week, but then it became entirely too personal. Depression had reared its ever-so-ugly head yet again, but I've got a handle on it now and can write somewhat sanely about it. You know that edge of depression, where you're fucking teetering, about to lose your balance and fall over? I'd passed… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G: Part III
