YOU MAY FIRE WHEN READY

Its been months since I last posted something, I guess no inspiration came across me. However since I felt anxiety is creeping in, I find the need to express myself, channeling my feelings here. Speak my mind out, perhaps ease it a little bit.

Since I want to write something, I tried scouring the internet for some inspiration. Little did I know that I find it in a blog that I follow (Opionated Man). In one of his latest posts he discussed fear. Fear not of monsters, goblins, demons etcetera but fear of being unable to remember his loved ones, family and friends.

Then it made me ponder of my own fears. Yes, I fear of rejection, condemnation, death, alienation etc. But instead of going through bullet points of every fear that I have, I’d rather discuss 2 fears that I…

#SoCS – Awkwardly

Today I am creating a sign on my blog that says “if you were sent here by Linda, go back to her blog. She is much nicer and look! A community blog challenge! Join the fun!”
I wouldn’t ask her to run your online bar though. It might go out of business… -OM

Verily, I say I really get myself into some messes. Like, I don’t think about what my own Saturday posts are going to look like. If you’re looking at this post and thinking, “Why the hell would I hire an editor who starts a sentence with an adverb … especially one like ‘verily,'” know that the prompt made me do it!

Yes, it’s my prompt.

I blame it on lack of coffee.

So, would you look at that! It’s Saturday already! The plan at this point is to take Alex to a movie today–either “The Kid Who Would Be King” or “A Dog’s Way Home.” I’m waiting for Alex to decide. I don’t particularly want to see either of them, but you do these sorts of things for your kids. Especially when they let you sleep in ’til 9:30. Aside from when they woke you up just to tell you…

An Upturned Soul

Why do you read? Why do you write? What inspires you to to read? What motivates you to write? Do you lose yourself or find yourself in words?

What are you looking for when you read or write?

Once again I’m going to share some posts which sparked a glow within when I read them this week, and the thoughts they inspired in me.

First up is:

Cage Dunn: And What Then?

I don’t know whether this has to do with my having dyslexia, or whether it has to do with how I learned to read, or something else, but my mind likes to play with words, including names.

When I see the name “Cage Dunn”, I see “Caged One” instead. And while reading his post wherein he answers questions from a friend about why he writes, the thought which sprung to mind was – he writes to release his…

Do bloggers even do these tags anymore? Or is it just me? 😛 I haven’t been nominated for one in awhile but, I’ll keep pushing them out until I don’t have any unanswered ones left.

Back in September, Steffani at Native Rose, nominated me for my third Mystery Blogger Award. All my thanks goes out to her! ❤

And now, a word from the creator:

The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

Okoto Enigma


I will be skipping all the rules and only answering Steffani’s questions this time.

  • What’s one of your favorite memories?

Wow…

If you are about to leave a comment about how I’ve never visited you or it has been years… get over it. Save it for the next post titled “let me know why I suck.”
