I commented like crazy yesterday on the Twitter stream. For a bit. I actually found out some interesting bits about myself, and why I wrote some of the books I did.
No knowledge of who my ancestors are, or my place in flow of the land, and sky, did not prevent me from writing. Crosswinds: Past, Present, and Future Combine – my first work – explores this from another point of view.
Surviving severe physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse did not prevent me from writing. Bending the Bars and The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice is the result of my knowledge, of me, and millions of others.
Severe memory loss and brain damage didn’t make me stop writing. If anything, it gave me more reason to write. To bring my memory back. At least the good parts. Out of this came – Journey Through Life Lists.
Learning to live gluten free didn’t slow down my writing. In fact, as I learned to cook gluten free, people begged for my recipes. Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook is the result. As is the coming of age novel that accompanies them.
Losing my hearing, and my vision slowed me down. Only because I wanted to be able to continue after all of my vision was gone. There were no guides for an adult to learn how to use a screen reader after using a mouse to control their computer for decades. So, I spent a few years learning, and wrote VoiceOver with the Brailliant Braille Display so I could continue writing. And after the latest OSX update – I had to turn to it to find out why my braille display wasn’t working right!
Somewhere, lost in the depths of time, I wanted to see more science in novels. So I started the Trails series. Still hope to finish the last pair.
I tend to write in pairs. #writerspersevere
I want to write Karma’s Children to describe the millions of stories when adults have smacked down my needs. Don’t have a baby and female – Not qualified to work a job, give it to man, or a woman with someone to support. Don’t have a car, and not willing to drive an hour each way? You aren’t serious about working a job. That novel will be fun.
And it’s pair will cover even more scary features.
Then, there are the short stories I am trying to finish up. Only, I keep having more ideas for short stories.
And the two novellas I want to write.
Deafblind, and doing fine, most of the time. Difficulty walking, talking, and doing many daily things. Yet, I too am a #writerspersevere person.
