For those of you that are following my blogs daily, ha ha, yesterday's excuse will hopefully be published tomorrow. This is the second part of a something that had an explanation blog first. Please yourselves. I sometimes find knowing the first part helps you understand the second, but I wouldn't bet on it. With no … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 2
Why am I subjecting you to a repeat of this story? This is the first story I wrote as an adult. I found I could write while making notes for a story about Mothers Day while living it (it was intended just to help me ignore the kids). This whimsical little story then became the … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 1
Of course disabled people can do whatever they want to. Rah,rah disabled rights. Okay, done? Seriously though, writing is supposed to be based in truth, right? Even the most preposterous fantastic premise must be based on the human experience, it must have internal cohesion or it becomes pointless. So you write from what you know. … Continue reading Can an Autistic Person Legitimately Become a Writer?

Living with a person who is neck deep in all the darker aspects of Autism as a disorder is hard. And … Continue reading Get Off the Rainbow, Autism Is Not All Positive

I have a bad headache, heartburn and I feel tired. That's right I am back to normal. Intellectually I was over the incident I am torn constantly. yet I barely ate and slept 2 to 4 hours a night for 10 days. I was crying every time I tried to write, critique and just randomly. Yet again … Continue reading Crisis Over, Back to Normal!

Physically I am crying often and my head, back and stomach are clearly showing that I am not over anything. This is not a … Continue reading I am torn constantly.
This may (emphasis on the word may) make more sense if you start with part 1 first then part 2 etcetera. First a little back tracking. I may not have given an accurate account of the Literary Dinner.
