NaNoWriMo 50k Words during November

NaNoWriMo 50k words during November

NaNoWriMo writing poetry
NaNoWriMo poetry writing 50k words

During the month of November, I am participating in a writing challenge through the non profit called NaNoWriMo. (See link for more info).

This is a challenge where you can network with other writers, the general public, or completely keep your writing private. It runs until the end of November, and the challenge is to write at least 50,000 words. That’s 50k.

I’m at a little over 10k right now.

If you divide it up, it’s writing approximately 2000 words a day. That’s easy to do if you can get in your zone.

Let me know what you think. 😊

If you don’t see much of me on here, that’s why. I’m in my mojo and writing, though I will try to check in and share my progress.

Good afternoon people of the interwebs.

I have shared in my previous posts that I started an online business at the beginning of 2022.

What a ride it has been. I have learned so much about digital marketing, social media marketing, making content, and I continue to learn new things everyday!

I made a video and posted it to Facebook reels, showcasing a flashlight that I own, and shared a link for others to purchase. (It’s a great flashlight, I’ll include the video here)…

Anyway, my reel has gotten over 40,000 views. Crazy right?

But I’m missing something. I missing YOU.

So this post is just to ask for you to subscribe to my blog, and socials. I’ve included my mail poet subscription form below. Thank you for your support. It really does mean everything to me as I build this business and get myself out of poverty. You can search my archives for more personal posts, and why I decided to do this. Also here’s my facebook page.

Here’s my professional services Facebook page link.

You can also check out my Instagram here, I have paid partnerships with companies there as well.

Who are you?

I am not what you think.


I am not what you think

So, this post is going to be a little random, as I’ve been posting thoughts on facebook, but not finishing them…Today….

We all care about what others think, on some level. Some show it more than others, and some hide their feelings. But if you really are interested in another, you will pay attention to those little idiosyncrasies…sometimes they can be a cry for help, acknowledgment, or just a little love. And you know what, its ok to give it, in a healthy way. If they push you away…at least you tried….I say this because I’m famous for trying to make people accept something they do not want. I think love can fix everything, but it can’t. And in the end I get frustrated, when I should have just left it up to God, He would have saved me the worry/heartache…even tho I’ve screwed up again, He still welcomes me back with Grace and forgiveness.

I find it so frustrating sometimes because I was told that I come across as bitchy and mean.  But I am NOT trying to be that way.  If they really knew me, and had tried to get to know me, then I don’t think that would be the case.  No one else seems to think that.   I believe the motivation behind actions is important…and I try to be a good person, and my motivation is never to hurt or be mean.  Maybe it’s because it’s easier to be defensive and take on that thought process, than to maybe hear what the other person is saying. Even when I tried to be super nice, and walk on eggshells, I still got shot down…there was no intimacy, no communication…nothing. And if I listen to him, what he is saying to me, then I am believing his opinion of me…which is that I am a bad person…but I know that I am not what he says, so I don’t agree.  I know in the past, I have gotten defensive when I know what the person is saying to me, is right.  I just didn’t want to hear it.  I wanted it to be my idea.

I don’t know, it really doesn’t matter, because no one can be forced to do anything.  It’s just sad, and it hurts.  I could talk till I was blue in the face, and he wouldn’t believe me. The more I “analyze”, as he says, the more defensive he got.  I guess it really doesn’t matter, it’s been over since April.  Love just doesn’t go away.  But it also can’t be nurtured without two people wanting it.  Such is life.

Anywho…I copied a couple posts I had on fb, into this post.

30 May 2013

It’s interesting how this feeling of contentment intermingles and conjugates with waves of heartache and longing. It’s funny how the soul chooses to heal itself, if allowed to freely process and feel without the hindrance of dysfunction. The end result is like a perfect spring or fall day, quietly smelling the air, and listening to the hoofbeats and breaths of your horse…when no one else is around. Satisfaction.

18 June 2013…

I’m sitting at work, doing my thing which requires me to pretty much not talk, and focus. (no, keeping my mouth shut isn’t that difficult, ALL of the And I’m suddenly and completely paralyzed with fear…along with a full out panic attack. It’s a good thing I was sitting because I might have done so involuntarily….anyway being that I don’t take any benzos, or opiates anymore, the only thing i could do was pray, and pray hard. So I did for like 30 minutes. I just prayed…i prayed for forgiveness for the totally screwed up decisions that I have made in the last few years…and you know what happened…peace, calmness, contentment…and forgiveness..from my screw ups. This is different than before, because before i would just buy some booz and pop a couple pills.
Thank God for grace.

Out Of The Grey coffee 1st review. Guatemalan SHB. Delicious

steaming cup of coffee with coffee beans

Out of the Grey coffee review. Guatemalan SHB

Out of the Grey coffee review. Guatemalan SHB

Out of the Grey coffee company reached out and sent me some bags of coffee and tea for me to review. I got the box and when I opened it, it smelled SOOOOO good. (If you like coffee, you know that wonderful aroma.)

The bag of whole beans that I am trying this morning is their Guatemalan SHB. The bag says that it’s “deeply sweet, intricately rich, jasmine, date, pistachio, blood orange zest & coconut flavors with a sweetly tart acidity and satiny mouthfeel.”

It’s steeping now in my french press. I can’t wait.

I’ll be right back.

(There will be a video of me doing the deed.)

I want to note as well, that all the bags I received were roasted 4 days ago, on the 31st of August, 2022. They shipped it to me from Virginia, and I also got chocolate covered expresso beans. Nothing was melted… in case anyone was wondering.

Wonderful. I tasted it before I added all of my stuff… (sugar and dairy free creamer, made from coconut milK and oat milk). It has a smooth feel, with a hint of nuts and and overtone of flowers. That’s what I tasted. It is very tasty.

Don’t take my word for it, get some and try it out yourself.

Happy Saturday

1. Boosts energy

Coffee contains caffeine, a central nervous system stimulant that is known for its ability to fight fatigue and increase energy levels.

This is thought to be due to coffee’s ability to preserve the function of the beta cells in your pancreas, which are responsible for producing insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.

Although studies have turned up mixed results, some research suggests that coffee may help protect against certain neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

4. Could help weight management

According to some research, coffee could alter fat storage and support gut health, both of which may be beneficial for weight management.

5. Some say lowers risk of depression

Tea is one of the most popular drinks due to its pleasant taste and perceived health effects. Although health benefits have been attributed to tea consumption since the beginning of its history, scientific investigation of this beverage and its constituents has been under way for about 30 years.

Consumption of tea, in particular green tea, has been correlated with low incidence of chronic pathologies in which oxidative stress has been reported to be involved, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. See related article HERE.
