So I here I sit at my laptop, my brain swarming with ideas…fiction…nonfiction…historical…health/food related…poetry…articles…novels… Aye! If I was an octopus I could probably work on all of these things….though I would need more sets of eyes to go with those extra hands. Prioritizing your ideas and tasks is never an easy thing to do. But that is where I am at.
Camp NaNo for this month has been put on hold. The story I was working on WILL be written, but the timing of it I don’t think is right. I have other pressing nonfiction stories to write in article and book form. Once I have those done, I am confident my very creative fiction side of me will kick in and I’ll be back to working on Facade (title pending).
The corruption in the food industry is heavily on my mind…I am a mom, wife, friend, sister, aunt, cousin, daughter, step-daughter, daughter-in-law…a cook and baker. It saddens me to hear of how a large company Monsanto has been destroying our food chain by altering our food and killing off insects (some beneficial like the honey bee) and they claim they are doing nothing wrong and GMO foods or genetically modified food, is safe for us those studies have proven otherwise. Due to this, my family and I have taken drastic actions in what we eat and have eliminated some foods completely.
