Not So Happy Holidays

IT’S HOW YOU SEE THINGS, NOT HOW IT REALLY IS It’s when all your words come out in in monotone or in low volume or they don’t come out right at all. Your brain thinks the right word but the wrong word leaves your mouth. Or your mouth trips up the words. Or your brainContinue reading “Not So Happy Holidays”

Meltdowns (Shh we don’t talk about those)

I have meltdowns. Not tantrums. And I’m not crazy. People think and say I am crazy when I have/had them. I used to think I was crazy. But now that I know I’m an Aspie I know that they are meltdowns. “How do you know they are not tantrums or that you are not oneContinue reading “Meltdowns (Shh we don’t talk about those)”

Autism is Evil. WTF? How did we get stuck with this?

You see/hear it on the web or on television or at your dining room table on the holidays. Anti vaccination rants. Vaccinations cause autism. I saw a video recently about triplets. Perfectly fine and happy, as stated by the parents. They showed a picture of them, the babies. No video. Then the parents took themContinue reading “Autism is Evil. WTF?

Markets are still slim. Wish there were more crime markets that paid well. The sci-fi/ya short I have been workingContinue reading “2 things that bite my balls (one for each)”

But we’re not those kinds of people are we?

Finished those two short story revisions and started submitting them today. The YA market is a bit edgy and controversial so I’m hoping the story will fit well there. Of course the mystery crime markets are so fucking slim for the second story. I just subbed it to Hitchcock. Acceptance there is as slim asContinue reading “But we’re not those kinds of people are we?”

Little accomplishments help break the long depression

That horrible man we shall call a dentist stuck his needles in my gums and tongue to numb me before he pulled out my tooth. Would you believe he used a Q-tip with some minty stuff to pre-numb me in order for me not to feel the needles? Good gravy. I don’t remember those needlesContinue reading “Little accomplishments help break the long depression”
