Hi there


Hey everyone, 

it's me, Dani. How is everyone? I missed being here. 

I can't believe it's been 2 years since I last posted. 

There are a few reasons for this - 2017 my oldest left the nest and it was super stressful and emotionally draining with lots of planning, some travelling and heart strings getting pulled into all directions.

On top of it I actually dealt with some health issues and had to start on getting all that sorted out. 2018 continued in the same fashion with a breast biopsy (everything was good), a brain MRI (everything was good), panic attacks (got that taken care of with the help of a counselor and am now a gym rat..lol), training for a new department in my job, and recently my mom who is possibly in the early stages of dementia visiting me for a few weeks. 

Honestly I also felt somewhat insecure about coming back because I'm only an amateur writer, Englisch is not my native language, I don't have any formal education in writing, and it seemed the Blog had enough submissions that were a lot more professional including published work, than what I have to offer. I still enjoy writing and I hope some of you who read some of my previous stuff on here are still around. I have been working on and off on several stories and I think I'm ready to share something again.

It looks like Monday is a day up for the taking and I'm thinking about posting again. I write on the side because work, kids, house, pets, husband, friends and life in general is a lot sometimes.  

I'm actually nervous posting this here because it will establish a commitment to fulfill on my end, regularly posting for the people who care to read it, taking the time to keep writing and working on all my stories to finish them. I am determined to come back and being here with you will push me in my writing efforts again.
Hugs, Dani

    Question. Can you write sthg short? Lie 2 episodes only? Or 3? This way u'd already have everything written down and so less stress. And we get a new story too

  9. Wow, this is so strange because this weekend I was going through my old posts and thinking it has been a depressing 2 years since I posted here as well. Like you, I had plenty of reasons for this, but I'm also nervous about coming back. Glad that things are better for you and you're going to start writing/posting again. :D

    1. I guess we had the same thoughts Chie. I definitely had no way to come back in the last two years, there was just too much going on. You should also come back. Then we will have variety again. I also hope very much that you are better again with your health. See you around
