You can always count on cereal and tea to come to the rescue when you’re tied up with work (in my case writing articles for Familyshare) and there’s no time for a huge meal.
Do writers feel this way? I do.
One picture. A million interpretations. That’s why I love Instagram.
When you capture a moment – no matter what it is – you are telling a story without having to say much or nothing at all. It’s interesting to cruise through pictures and embrace other people’s lives and memories.
I enjoy taking selfies. Sometimes I write a caption and sometimes I do not. When I don’t, I want people to guess what I’m thinking or feeling at that time. I want people to look pass the face and create a story as I would. Not everyone will feel inclined to do so, but a writer might.
Instagram is a great form of promoting your business or personal adventures. I like to do both. There’s nothing wrong with mixing it up.
I think I found my new “home” in the social media world.

A few times I’ve been asked where is my next novel. I dislike having to say it’s nowhere near finished. But it’s the truth. It’s been a little over a year since I published a book. And my hopes was to have something last year. Sadly, it didn’t come to life.
As much as I wanted to complete my novel, rushing was not the answer. I made so many different changes throughout the way because new ideas were evolving, which led my story down different paths a few times. Boy, it’s challenging to write a novel when you can’t make up mind about which path to take.
In February, I gave myself the one month challenge to complete the novel. I did the challenge. But after reading what I wrote, I had to put it aside. It felt good and made sense when I was writing it. However, when it was time to edit, I was not pleased. The story was not what I intended originally. Ugh! It’s frustrating.
As of last week, I decided my novel was going to take a certain path. The plot, characters, locations, etc. has been established. It’s just a matter of putting all the pieces together. This time I will not change my mind. If not, I will drive myself crazy.
This morning, I donated to the American Cancer Society-Bark for Life and to the AIDS Walk of NYC 2014 in honor of a very important person. There is something special and gratifying about donating – even a dollar – to reputable organizations. I believe it can help lives. I wish I had thousands of dollars to donate and see lives change. Sadly, I’m in no position to do so. Nevertheless, I will continue supporting these causes through my own donations and through my writing. Every penny counts.
And welcome to my new blog followers!! I look forward to interacting with you all. And to my older followers and visitors, thanks for hanging in there with me. I appreciate the support.
If you had a chance to read any of my articles, you will notice I write mostly about marriage, family relationships and finance, which I love doing very much. However, I am considering writing in other areas such as fashion. I love everything about the fashion world, and I am interested in exploring that industry a little further.
If I’m not reading a fashion magazine, I’m visiting fashion. Take a look.
