So sorry guys, this has not been a deliberate taunt. It would have been a really good one. Outline a sad problem, promise a solution, then go silent. It's a funny idea but I wouldn't actually do that to you. I mean, would enough people even notice. If you don't know what on Earth I'm … Continue reading Been Busy 4 Solutions
This particular pointless rant actually started days ago. See Been Busy and Been Busy 2 Fixing the Government I may have told you this before. I was in Centrelink with my mother and daughter, I was sitting separately because during the previous visit my panic attack had badly distressed them. I had a massive panic … Continue reading Been Busy 3 Tilting at Windmills
Okay I have to come clean; I have not fixed the government. Mainly because no one would let me. I know why, its Machiavellian. I mean I'm autistic, that should be a free pass to the job of Prime Minister. Oh well that is the dream. You know how some people write stuff in parts, … Continue reading Been Busy 2 Fixing the Government
I'm in an anxious, active kind of mood today so I may actually stick close to topic and even finish. No it is not already finished. No you have to keep reading. You do have to keep reading, I know where you live. You know I have no idea where you live, don't you. And … Continue reading De Railed Part 3.
If you remember yesterday I was blathering about trains and being nice to a person. If you don't remember look here. I don't really remember what I said. As a rule I try not to remember what I say, my mind needs to be free of the trivial and the absurd. That's why I can't … Continue reading De Railed Part 2
It's been a long while. Bit cliched, I know, restarting on New Year's Day. But I need all the pushing I can get. KSP did not work out. Maybe because I'm a b&%@#, maybe because of the autism. But basically I couldn't communicate my needs or my ideas. The break up was a … Continue reading I’ve Been…
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?
'I am not my disability, I am a person!' Interesting, but in terms of autism how accurate is it. I suppose what it gets down to is how do we really understand 'a person'. Other disabilities, sure I'll give you that, as far as I know. Blind people are people who can not see, deaf … Continue reading I Am Not A Person, I Am An Autistic.
