Random thoughts and musings of a single Mom striving to follow dreams and find pure BLISS.


Ahhhhhh...the joys of the slightly employed single mother.

I'm So in need of time in a quiet spot with nothing going on around me. I don't even want Internet, but I do want my phone to work because I'm addicted to Pandora. But other than that I want NO distractions, which may be distracting in itself, but I'm willing to chance it.

I have SO much swirling around my brain it's starting to get painful and overwhelming, but starting something and then having to stop every 5 minutes to break up a fight or refill a sippy cups is giving me creative blue balls-not life threatening, but damned uncomfortable.

I just feel that if I could finish one- just one- that the others would fall into place much easier, basically because I'd have more confidence that I could actually finish something.

Another blog that I follow, Confessions of the Unpublished, has announced a writing challenge-50,000 in 50 days. Fifty days of writing at least 1000 words. In a row. The words AND the days. I want to do it, but I'm afraid that my already semi-sleepless nights will get even more sleepless. When in the hell will I find the time to write 1000 words a day? How in the hell can I keep my brain going in any sort of creative direction for 50 days? 50 days is forever! It's crazy time! It's so completely doable that I think I could do it and I hope I don't end up talking myself out of it.

It sounds scary, and I also think that's why I need to do it. It's big and scary. It's nothing I've ever done before. AAKKKK! AaahhhhOOoohhhhShtiiiiittt! 

I'm going to need your love and support, faithful few, and possibly a few kicks in the ass to get me across that 50,000 word mark. Let the fun begin!


  1. I've been thinking about it, too. I think I might have to modify it though. :) 50,000 is just too much for my poor little brain to handle. Plus all my little ocd neurosis will kick in to sabotage me.

    Good luck and keep me updated!

  2. one bite at a time is the best way to eat a Big Mac... Much more enjoyable that way,, even if you are not hungry... choking it down in one gulp can be highly uncomfortable... How many word were in this? Hummmmmm... just saying... World's not flat! Life is about those who dream to accomplish the impossible.. "You must Believe to Achieve"
