Best of the Blog

A Reflection on Blogging

I started my blog four months ago and basically was just looking for an outlet. A place to share my thoughts, practice writing, promote books (both mine along with books in general), and, of course, continue spreading multiple sclerosis awareness. 

I have reached over ninety posts, and while some are undoubtedly better than others, this blog has kept be writing. The main point of blogging is to keep the words flowing to help me continue on my writing journey.

Thank you to my followers, my readers, and anyone who took the time to get to know me better through my writing!

Below, I will highlight some of my favorite posts.

If you’re new to my blog, I hope you stick around, give me a follow or some likes and more than anything, read through some of my writings, particularly those which you’ll find highlighted here.

My Book Excerpts

While I am currently working on completing my first ever full length novel, I do have four novellas available on Amazon already! Check out some sneak previews to see which one interests you!

My short-read memoir, You Don’t Look Sick: 100% true story of my journey with multiple sclerosis.

All are available in eBook, paperback or free with Kindle Unlimited.

You Don’t Look Sick

The Contestants

Books (in general)

I LOVE to read.

Of all the books I’ve read, Brain on Fire is one of the best.

Being an author, I feel one has to read in order to be the best writer possible. You need to see what you like, what you don’t like, what works, what fails, and best of all, enjoy getting lost in a story.

Writing Practice

I recently attempted (and successfully completed!) a 25 Day Writing Prompt Challenge. Some days were easier than others to right, but looking back, I had some favorite prompts.

Day 1: What the Neighbors Saw

Day 7: Life Goals

Day 10: Spirits Among Us

Day 15: My First Pet

Writing (in general)

I did attempt a few poems while beginning this blog, and I’ve also tried to offer some small advice to other writers.

Here are just a couple examples.

Poem 12: Trying

Multiple Sclerosis

I am stronger than MS.

Being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis was one of the scariest times of my life.

Living through three back-to-back relapses along with optic neuritis was even scarier.

Beginning a new treatment plan that involved twice-yearly infusions was scarier still.

But through all of it, I am stronger.

With over 3,000 views, I am so thankful that people are taking the time to read my words. Hope you read through some of my highlights and take the time to search for other posts while you’re here.

I also write about food from time to time! And who doesn’t like food?

Cheers to the next 3,000 visitors!
