Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting my page.
I am a writer, photographer, and graphic artist.
I help entrepreneurs with branding by providing written content, graphic design, and photography. I design logos and design content for print and website marketing.
I use my creative gifts to inspire, encourage, and provide a voice for introverts. I created my website and blog artisticmysticsoul.com as a place to share my writing, photography, and artwork.
I am an INFJ who loves to connect deeply with people and causes. I am purpose-driven and love to do work that makes a difference in the world.
I thought it would be a cool idea to put together an article featuring my best stories as a quick reference. Some have been curated, and some have not. But I feel these are representative of my best work.
I was so excited to publish my first story on Medium! I was approached by the publisher of the now-defunct publication “The Innovation”. My first story was published, but not curated. I am still very proud of my first attempt.
I have added a few more recent stories that have been curated. I am proud of every one of these.
I’ve had a horrible case of writer’s block since the Medium Writer’s Challenge was announced. When I force myself to respond to a prompt, I lose my identity as a writer. Perhaps that’s a weakness on my part.
The truth is, none of the prompts inspire me in the least.
Who wants to write about death or work after the past year? And reentry is almost as bad. Can we say—depressing? All the prompts are “pandemic inspired” and that sucks.
The only one interesting to me is space, and even that one has connotations of social distancing.
My therapist is raising my rate by 140% on August 15. I was dreading this date, but I’ve come to peace with it. In fact, I’m grateful.
Next week she is on vacation. Her colleague was available, but I decided against setting up an appointment with her. It’s always awkward trying to pick up with a different person, and besides—I deserve a week of vacation too.
I am grateful for my therapist.
For four years, she has been an incredible source of support and healing in my life. I’ve processed a lot of trauma. …
Jodie Whittaker dealt with harassment from the moment BBCA announced that she would play The Doctor. I don’t blame her for leaving.
Haters will claim that she got her three seasons, but did she? At best they were brief and marred by the constant complaining of so-called fans.
In a show where the main character routinely changes bodies, gender and color shouldn’t be an issue.
The Ruth Doctor, played by Jo Martin? She was brilliant! I’d watch her too!
As a female lover of sci-fi and fantasy, it bothers me that women in these franchises deal with abuse, bullying, and…
I’ve been publishing low-content books on Amazon for a few months and learning the KDP system.
This morning, I got my basic author page set up. You can follow me here:
I can’t wait to start publishing more personal and original content!
I have an idea for an inspirational book featuring my photography. I also have an idea for a science-fantasy novel. That will be a first for me, so it’s a little scary.
I have spent the better part of the day on the phone trying to get help for my mother, who is in memory care. She is psychotic, paranoid, and hallucinating. She is refusing to eat and take her medication. If this continues, she will die.
Nobody cares enough to do anything.
According to the psychiatrist, there are four potential courses of action.
