Written progress

I have been journaling for as long as I can remember. I always had a diary and still have them saved at my parents house from the time I was six. When I was twelve you could argue that the first social media experiment -even before Myspace-  was LiveJournal. I know. I know. I am dating myself horribly right now. ….


Mermaid Tears

I was helping a friend create a blog the other day and we were going through names. Well as a writer I know Google is my best friend for finding names. As a fellow seaglass huntress I thought it would be cool for her to incorporate the name into her blog. She ended up settling on a different name (but ….

Wedding Date Trials and Tribulations

Weddings can always bring the melancholy out of the single gal, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact bringing a date can be just as stressful, do I have to hold his hand constantly if he doesn’t know anyone? And then if it is family, oh lord he is going to meet Aunt Donna in all her glory? Weddings ….

What DO I Wear!?!? The Dos For Wedding Fashion

Ah love is in the air or at least it feels that way with Valentines Day last week and 61 degrees out this weekend. Warmer weather tends to make you dream of summer and  wedding season. Wedding season you ask? Yes it is real. The majority of marriages take place in the summer months, with June being the biggest percentage in ….

What not to do when Dating Online

A few months ago, I decided to give that online dating thing ago. I was skeptical. I had my doubts. But as a good little yogi I knew I had to put those aside and take a positive outlook. You attract what you give out, or so they say. I settled for EHarmony after talking to various friends. I answered ….

Ankhors Away

I love the ocean. I know redundant statement, but it is true. The smell, the waves, even the gritty parts people abhor like the sand getting everywhere, and the salt water. I love it all. It is my happy place. It is my peace. If we could choose heaven, mine would be the ocean. Through out my life, the beach ….

THE Idea

A question asked by many. What is your process? Writing process that is. Many times I have no idea how to answer this question. You would think as a type A personality (most of the time) I would be organized in my writing, starting with outlines, notes, washboards, etc. This makes me laugh. Because it couldn’t be farther from the ….

The Pull of the Water Draws Me Home

I came to love mermaids quite accidentally. The Little mermaid wasn’t even my favorite Disney movie, or finding Nemo or any mystical mermaid movie, though I do have to say I did like the thirteenth year (If you are a nineties kid, you know what movie I am talking about). I did and do love the ocean. As a kid ….

Ankhor You

I am a self confessed beach addict, coffee junkie, and fashionista. But I own it all and refuse to receive treatment for any of it. I have had many blogs on a variety of forums, including LiveJournal -remember Livejournal? No? Alright I’ll stop dating myself- WordPress has been one of them, though it hasn’t gotten the love it deserves (sorry WordPress) ….
