Redirection/Letters to the MonSter

Good Friday morning, fellow warriors. With the start of a new year, a new president, and fresh hope for CoVid19 vaccinations, I find myself wanting to add to these new beginnings.

Most of my time in the recent months has been spent in online classes, studying the craft of writing. If you're not familiar with Ninja Writers ( or InkersCon (, please check them out. They offer SO much information as well as provide a wonderful assortment of support.

My greatest accomplishment so far by attending these writing sessions is the creation of my Landing Page:

It's no secret how much I despise the marketing and technical aspects of what I do, but I can ignore it no longer. If I want to earn my keep as a writer, these are essential.

With the guidance of yech wizard Meg Stewart, the professional writing skills of teacher/author Shaunta Grimes, and the weekly discussions with fellow Ninja Writers; the inspiring excitement of Inkers Alassandra Torre and her team of experts at Inkers; and my own invented town of Ellison, I have managed to thoroughly enjoy these weeks of seclusion.

I'm not saying I'm not ready to BREAK OUT with a spur-of-the-moment trek to the Mall (Barnes and Noble, look out!), but these new friends and new studies have helped fill some of the darker hours of quarantine. My goal for January is to publish a subscription page to grow my e-mail list of followers. I finished that yesterday. There are still some bugs to be worked out, but it's functional.

Have a grand weekend!

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages
