loving fiercely

-blows off dust-

Love fiercely.
LOVE.
FIERCELY.

It's scary. It's difficult, because your brain gets in the way with all of those "what ifs." It signals a certain loss of control, at least in bursts.

You do it for fandoms, without thought. Why not people? Life?

Some won't understand you. They'll call it obsession. Is that so--

You know, I was about to write how obsession isn't what I'm talking about, but fuck that. Be obsessed with life. A thing. A person. A color. Whatever.

Sometimes it hurts. Often,...

Goals aka The Run

Posted by Sherry Roit on Thursday, March 17, 2016, In : opinion piece 



Went for a run just now. Third day in a row, after having run once a week for the last three weeks. I thought to myself, self? Just an easy run today. Right calf is a bit stiff, you will be lucky to make two miles. But two miles is good, and it's better than no miles.

So I'm out doing my thing. It's a lovely, sunny day. I'm sore, but not enough to allow myself to stop. I say to self, self? Get that first mile. Okay, got it. Surely we can get that second. Sure...okay. Let's do it.

So I did it, a...

HIS
HERS
JOINT EXPENSE

You pay into the joint account for shared expenses (rent, utilities and so on) and then you have your own money. You then agree, and must STICK by this agreement, that what the other person does with their personal account, is not your concern. No matter how frivolous it seems. Do I really need to say that no advice in ...

A word on derivatives

Posted by Sherry Roit on Tuesday, December 30, 2014, In : opinion piece 



Fan-fiction. It used to be a very secretive topic. Taboo, for most. Divisive. It is still these things for some, though these days, people are far more open about it. Heck, some have even been published after first writing derivative fiction.

But I'm not here to talk about the legalities (as there are laws in place when it crosses a line) or whether it's morally right or wrong. And of course, any author has every right to dislike it, and take legal action when it crosses a line. They have ever...

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

A quote often attributed to Gandhi. Except that he didn't. Say it, that is. Yet, I would argue that it sums up several other things that he did say, which is, I'm certain, how this came to be attributed to him.

Now to the point, and the reason I chose this phrase. I just realized also that this post will go well with the one previous, where I speak of words having meaning.

I posted something a few moments ago on my Facebook author page, then was going on in a similar vein in a comment thread, a...
