Who am I?
On the surface, Iâ€™m a woman, a wife, a mother. But at heart, Iâ€™m just a girl. Here, Iâ€™ve exposed my vulnerable core. You can read all about me in the Fact section â€“ youâ€™ll probably learn more than youâ€™d ever want to know. Iâ€™ve written those posts so I can learn to discern whatâ€™s true. I had to tell my own stories to feel the truth in my body, so that when I work in the realm of fiction I can physically discern the truth from whatâ€™s fluff. Or bullshit.
Am I dangerous?
A little bit, yes. I write about other people ruthlessly. I bore straight into their most secret hearts, and sometimes I get it right. If it’s weird, uncanny, or unstable, I’m drawn to write about it. Empathy has no morals, and Iâ€™ve spent the past few years exploring the worst parts of the human psyche, trying to discover its depths. Iâ€™ve offended a few people, I think. Iâ€™ve lost some friends. I write about others to learn about myself, and that might be the same thing as manipulation. I donâ€™t know.
Thing is, when I write, I want not only to expose, but also to heal. I want you to edit me, and I want to revise. I want to try again and again until we get it right.
Weâ€™re in this together.

Time to cheer. I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Yay!
Wow, thanks, Mark!
You’re welcome, Christi. Have some fun with it, be damned!
I’ve been talking to Thomas Marlowe and we are both missing the Trifecta Challenge. One thing led to another and we have decided to set up Light and Shade Challenge where there are prompts twice every week and a chance to share what inspiration strikes.
We are not trying to be the same as Trifecta. They were awesome and I miss them. We do have some really exciting ideas of our own, though and can’t wait to see what happens. It would be great if you could come and join us and see where this journey takes us. Good writers are always welcome. If you have any questions then get in touch either on the Light and Shade Challenge Blog http://lightandshadechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ or on the Facebook page. It would be wonderful to hear from you.
