Happy Birthday Blog

Today, I give you my very first blog post ever, a blast from the past in celebration of the blog's birthday. Reading it really makes me wish I had a Tardis.

It's one of those days.

A day that I sit and stare at the words on my computer screen in complete horror, convinced that I have made a terrible mistake, that I will never write one word that anyone else would ever want to read, much less pay money for.

A day when I'm convinced my friends are whispering behind my back, "Poor girl. She actually thinks she's good at this."

A day where I ask myself, "Why did I quit my job? Oh my holy crap, what was I thinking? Do I unknowingly indulge in illicit drugs in my sleep, like those people on news shows that sleepwalk and mindlessly eat? And if I do, in fact, indulge in illicit drugs, how am I paying for them?"

It's days like these when I am saved by that flickering flame that hides in my heart, that persistent little voice. The one that says - do it. Just write. The words will come.

I sure hope that voice knows what it's talking about.


  1. Wow...that was a beautiful post. And it kinda makes me wish I had a Tardis, too! We could go back together with cupcakes :)

  2. I stand by my comment on the original post. ;)

  3. Happy Birthday to your blog! I love you and your writing, I hope you know that. ;-)
