DFM is two!

One of the things I missed during my absence from the blogsphere was my own blogversary. DIARY OF A FAILED MARRIAGE IS TWO! My baby is a toddler and my life has changed a lot. For the better. Exhaustion episodes, crying for no reason and fear of the unknown are not part of my days…

Two Months

It’s been two months since I last posted here. I feel really bad for neglecting my blog and even worse for abandoning my blogger friends. I apologise! I have been reflecting on why and it’s hard to explain. The writing drought hasn’t been confined to here. I haven’t written a single word for my stories…

See You Again

I did it! My second novel ‘See You Again’ is finished on Wattpad. I hit the completed button and of course I was a little emotional. Now I start another chapter of my writing story. Make Love Your Goal is unpublished and I have to start the mammoth task of rewriting it into a series….

Author Website

My author website is finally up and running! I am very proud of it. Now I need to get my books ready for publishing, which is no easy feat. I’ll be blogging there as well, only a couple of times a month. The aim is to get people to subscribe to receive first hand news…

Last Night

Last night, as you already know, I was home alone, sipping red wine and writing a sex scene for my new story. It doesn’t take a genius to imagine I was horny. I am a very sexual person and I haven’t had any action in over a year (not couting the artificial action I often…

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all believers and happy holiday to the rest. I spent the day alone after dropping Raven at her dad’s yesterday. They are somewhere in Barcelona today. I can’t complain. In my humbler plans for her next week, we’re going to Anime Con in Manchester on Sunday/Monday and London on Thursday /Friday. She…

#MeToo – Assessment and Inspiration

Anyone with internet will have heard of the #MeToo movement created a few months ago to shed light on sexual abuse. It all started with Harvey Weinstein’s scandal and spread throughout the industry in Hollywood and reached us commoners. Many women shared their stories – ranging from uncomfortable requests, through narrow escapes to full on…

Almost There

I apologise again for neglecting this blog. It feels that the better my life gets, the less I need to write. It is a good thing, I know. However, I can’t help but feel bad for abandoning a baby. This blog saved my sanity in the very least. The wonderful people here still keep me…

Great Weekend

Last weekend I had my long awaited girly time. My friends (still the Wattpad group) came to mine on Friday. We had a big scare with the huge amount of snow (for UK standards, which is very little for many countries) falling since Wednesday, traffic going mental and trains being cancelled. We spent 24 hours…

Meh Week

I am officially calling the week after the holidays ‘Meh Week’. Going back to work was meh. I wished I could have taken another week off. Me and probably 90% of the world population. The other 10% actually did. Never mind my unofficial stats… I was sulking all Tuesday and getting back into the rhythm…

9 Days

I had a good day again. I slept fine, ate well and didn’t drink. I had one glass too many last night and instigated another wild conversation with my friends. Somehow, one of them ended up suggesting that I have a threesome with a gay couple who lives close to my house.  I’ll spare you…

WEEKEND PREPARATIONS

My friends are coming over this weekend. I can’t even explain how excited I am. These ladies mean the world to me and their friendship has helped me immensely over the past year. Incidentally, a few days ago was the anniversary of our group chat. It started as a few Wattpad authors wanting to discuss…

Happy Thanksgiving 

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK for obvious reasons, however, as most of my readers are from the US, I thought I should join in the celebration. There are many things I am thankful for, even after a very difficult couple of years. My daughter is number one on this list, of course. She’s…

Out and About 

I was out with Raven last night. We went to our favourite Tapas bar and spent the evening crushing on the three gorgeous waiters. They are too young for me and too old for her. Still, there’s no harm in looking, is there? I have big plans for the next couple of weekends. Next weekend…

FICTION X REALITY

This weekend, my first Wattpad story, Make Love Your Goal, reached 14K reads.  I’m already publishing chapter 10 of my second story, See You Again, but because MLYG is so personal and special to me, I had to revisit the characters and write a special chapter. I named it Six Years Later and allowed myself…

Back to Reality…

…And it sucks! I came back from my wonderful holiday to a week of total chaos and utter hell at work. Wow. I hate when I get so exhausted that I start making stupid mistakes. My brain was all fuzzy, my brain cells completely fried and, by Friday, I wasn’t thinking anymore. I hate that…

Writing Milestone

This weekend I have finished writing my first Wattpad book. It has been a very long journey, a labour of love, writing a story with a theme so special and important to me. ‘Make Love Your Goal’ has kept me sane in many ways. I could put all my feelings of love and acceptance of the LGBTQ+…

Wonderful Weekend

My weekend started with something that could have totally ruined it: an argument with barely husband.  He was questioning me regarding any additional requirements that may block the house sale. Stupid, as I made it clear that I want the house sold and our finances completely separate as soon as possible.  True to my new…

Girly Weekend

This weekend I am meeting my Wattpad friends again. Our friendship has been going strong since we started chatting after finding a common interest: writing. The four of us are completely different but there is a lot of respect for each other and our sense of humour never fails. We pick each other up and no…

Happy Blogversary! 

Yesterday, as I published my latest post, I received the following notification: Wow! A year has passed and so much has changed!  I started blogging in a moment of complete desperation, anxiety and feeling lost. My marriage was in ruins and the attempts to fix it only made it worse.  I was trying but I…

PONDERING

I always tend to go back and analyse things, be it what I write in my posts or what happens in my daily life. I was very excited before the weekend started. A last minute cancellation gave me an early start to my tattoo, Raven and I had been enjoying the week off at home…

Bucket List Update

I am making very good progress on my bucket list and I am happier because of it. Some things are out of my hands, like the sale of ‘our’ house. I need my share of the money to buy mine. The house is up for sale, had viewings and almost 60 clicks on the virtual…

Writing Milestone 

I usually post milestones for my Wattpad work but today I want to share two blog milestones for my ‘Diary of a Failed Marriage.’  Earlier this week this happened:  And today this happened : When I started writing, all I wanted was an outlet. I wondered if anyone would ever want to read about a…

MANCHESTER IS LOVE

MANCHESTER IS A PLACE OF LOVE I was very lucky to spend the most wonderful three years there while going to University. There, I was integrated in a world that saw no boundaries for love. Students of all backgrounds, religious beliefs and sexual orientations lived and worked in harmony. Manchester was where I discovered myself…

NEW CAR

Today I got my new car. I am happy and excited. Being a total book nerd, my new license plate makes me smile: it starts with KU, which is Kindle Unlimited! Sorry for the lame post. I just wanted to share.

BUCKET LIST

More like F*CK IT list in my current mood. A lot of things are just stuff I HAVE TO do to sort my life out. It’s not that long… I think. I haven’t written it beforehand so we’ll see! 1.     Buy my own house – I’ve had a few houses before but it has…

A WEEK ALONE

I have a week alone ahead of me. Well, I have the dog, which is not mine and that I never wanted to start with. *Sigh* Because I was off last week I made the decision to give myself a proper resting holiday and sent the dog off to the kennel. It is a very…

Writing Milestone 10K

I have made no secret that writing has kept me sane over the past (almost) year, when things became really bad between barely husband and I.  Starting to record a story I had in my mind, a story I wanted to maybe share one day, I used pen and paper. A couple of months into…

GETTING OVER IT

I have been surprisingly fine this weekend. My mom has been calling me often, which she doesn’t usually do, to make sure I am fine. I really am, reinforcing the sense that I made the right decision.  My writing is the one taking the hit at the moment and I had no chapter ready for…

NEW FRIENDS

This weekend provided the perfect opportunity for a new start. No, I have not jumped into another relationship. I had a girly weekend, something I hadn’t had in roughly 14 years.  This weekend had been planned for a while. It would be the weekend when my worlds would cross paths. I would spend it with…
