The Memoir Project Canceled

For those that have been following me on social media for some time you may have noticed me talking about a memoir I’ve struggled to write for years. This memoir is one that has been difficult for many reasons, the biggest reason being that it deals with some very personal things from my childhood. This is a story I feel is important to tell, it’s one I want to tell, but sadly it is one that will currently to be canceled on my projects list.

I’ve been open about the childhood trauma and abuse I have survived. From living with a narcissist parent to my journey coping with a very abusive sibling, these are difficult topics for me to tackle. I work everyday on self-care to help me cope with the things I’ve endured, but I’ve realized, though the story is very important for raising awareness, it is one I cannot bring myself to continue at this point in time.

These struggles and my survival stories are hard to understand, at times, for those I have told them to. As a writer, I have often found that I cannot find the right words to express my life or my emotions while truly believing that all that I have endured have given me strength through surviving and passing on the wisdom I have gained through my traumas.

I shared some of my stories here under ‘story-time’ articles, but those, I have come to realize, only highlighted my personal beliefs of my life and family through a ‘nicer’ filter. Though my life had what felt like brief moments of general ‘goodness’, those are the moments I would like to hold closest to me. The good times got me through a lot of the darkness, which seemed around every corner I turned growing up and even into my adult life.

I also believe this memoir or set of memoirs would upset some of my family upon publication. I may live a more open lifestyle and life many of my family prefers privacy and out of respect to those that would want this I will grant it to them, for the time being.

One day the story/stories will be released for readers, but now is not the time to do it. I apologize. The closest readers will get to see into my life is through my dark poetry. Two collections are currently out, but plans of a third is in the works.

Taking A Break – More Coming

I have roughly 20 interviews and author advice posts I will work on and getting up on the website. I will also take a break mid-December into the first part of 2021 to catch up on deadlines for publishers and other things. I also have some personal things I’ll be handling that need my focus. I also need to handle some self-care projects to help myself. Don’t worry, I’ll be back, eventually.

I will have the rest of the review challenge for this year scheduled and posts to finish out the tail end of this year-long event. I’ll be also working and planning out things for 2021 and the future of the website.

Delays and Issues

I’ve realized I’ve been having some issues for some time on posting. This is some schedule posts not going up when they’re supposed to, when I thought they were, and some of my daily life taking priority. As some of you know my mother was diagnosed with kidney cancer earlier this year, she’s been battling things for months now and this has me distracted as a caregiver role takes over. This will probably continue for the coming months into the next year. As far as posts not going up when they’re supposed to, I’ll work on getting them up manually until I can figure out what I am doing wrong on ‘scheduling’ them. Thank you ahead for your understanding. I am doing my best.

Major Website News

If you’re seeing this and haven’t noticed, let me update you about some changes happening and to come. I’ve decided to change the layout of the website, but I’m not stopping there. Going through my published posts I decided it was time to update many of them and organize many of them into better categories.

What does all that mean?

  • The Story-time series is getting refreshed and reformatted; more content coming.
  • Guest bloggers and interviews are being revamped. They’ll be a sub-category of The Word and being labeled as the Brief Words series. This will include the 15 for 15 Interviews.
  • The Veil is going to have new content. This series will be more active during Halloween.
  • Before the pandemic hit I was working on a speaking engagement, courses to be taught, and due to this the plan was to revamp much of The Word series. As no public grouping is allowed locally and currently due to social distancing I will simply revamp The Word series, re-organizing it, and making the content clearer for readers and writers seeking the posts as learnable content.
  • Blogger challenges and prompts will remain the same and organized the same.

It’s the middle of the night as I write this. Right now, the above mentioned is all I currently know I’ll be changing and updating. It’s enough to warrant and explanation as some blog posts will temporary disappear, posts will be re-written, re-formatted, and the look of the site is changing.
