Words From a Shy Yet Social Woman


I love writing. I love written communication. I excel in expressing myself  when I am writing my thoughts down, verbally, I don’t excel as much. I think its partially because I prefer to listen and wait till no one is saying anything to respond but its also because i’m shy. Verbally expressing myself has been a difficult task for me but i’m working on it and getting better. I love to chat and share verbally and I do so a lot. I’m a chatty girl, really, I am; still, I prefer to express my wants and needs with written words. Maybe, it is because I don’t feel as shy or maybe it’s because I can take the time to fully express what I want to say without interruption. Either way, written words are my chosen medium. Being preferential to the written word coupled with a creative imagination, it’s no wonder I became a writer.   I’ve been writing fiction and non-fiction since I was 15!  At the age of 18, I published my first short story in the Young Writers’ of Canada  Tales from the Campfire.  I wrote a very short story (350 words)  about a teenage girl who survived a serious drunk-driving car accident (leaving it  a large gash across her cheek, which served as a reminder to not drink and drive.)   Afterwards, I attended university and as an assistant editor (then editor then assistant Editor-In-Chief) I wrote many articles for Imprint Publications. Now, I’m currently writing a novel, which I would like to finish my first draft by December (fingers crossed). The written word has become a strong part of my life and I hope it will stay that way but I’m continuing to improve my verbal communications as well!

Besides it’s like Terri Main says ” You are a writer, the ‘normal’ ship sailed without you long ago.”


Starbucks: The Cure For A Bad Day?


“This required Starbucks. And this wasn’t just a latte morning either. Oh no, this was a “Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccino with extra whipped cream” kind of morning.”
We all have these kind of days. The days where nothing goes right. The best two ways to fix the day? The more expensive option: A spa appointment. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to face anything 😀  The less costly option is option two: Comfort food or drinks. I never had a frappuccino and never craved one. …until I read this book!  Frappuccinos can put a chocolatey blissful smile on any grumpy face 😀 I wish Canada had the caramel brownie option but the Java chip also is quite yummy 😀  7 times out of ten i’ll pick chocolate over any other variation. For those other three times i’m partial to a strawberries and creme Frappuccino.  YUM.  The only way Starbucks could make me any happier is to combine chocolate, caramel, and whip cream 😀  I should go and try Starbucks’  any way you want it frap! I would get them to add a splash of caramel (note:  by splash I mean dollops of caramel 😀 )

Words to Live by :D

Being afraid to live the life you want will result in a life of mediocrity. Never live in fear! Go ahead and work hard for what you want. At the end of the day you’ll be 1000% times happier than if you settled for mediocrity.  Here are two inspirational quotes that I hope encourage all my loyal viewers to live big! 😀

Here’s a quotation from a favourite movie from my high school days!
