Weekend Writing Warriors #31!

Hey, ladies and gents, I’m baaaaaaaaack! 😀 How’s everyone been? Very glad to be joining you again for a fun Sunday full of reading and writing. Since I’m currently adding words to Steeped in Love, I figured I’d share some snippets of the additions with you. Without further ado, let’s find out what Ethan and Addie are up to!

Life

Dear Rideau High School….

I’ve been a teacher for more than four years now. I’ve spent time in dozens of schools in the Ottawa region. Wonderful schools full of amazing students and teachers. They all hold a special place in my heart. But my life completely transformed when I entered Rideau High School for the first time.

Online Dating 101 – Lesson One

Hello, all you beautiful people! Welcome to the first edition of my new weekly segment that delves into the world of online dating. I call it ‘Online Dating 101.’ Inspired, I know. Some of what I’ll be sharing was previously posted on my old blog, but, since I’m knee-deep in the online dating world again, I figured I’d bring it back!

In the coming weeks, you will discover all the dos and don’ts of the internet dating world. You will learn how to decode ‘man speak.’ You will hear hilarious and horrifying tales of dates gone wrong and dates that never made it past ‘hello.’ And, most importantly, you will be given all the tools you need to get out there and find Mr. Right! So, without further ado, let’s begin….

Weekend Writing Warriors #28!

Howdy, folks! Happy Sunday! As I mentioned last week, we’re all finished with the Steeped in Love installments for now. This week, I’m sharing something COMPLETELY different, but I think you’ll all get a kick out of it. I wrote this story quite a few years ago, but it’s always held a special place in my heart. It’s called What’s Your EyeCue? I won’t even give away the premise. I’ll let you figure that out. Ready? Let’s go!

Weekend Writing Warriors #27!

Heya, folks! Sorry about missing last week. I forgot I’d be at my Dad’s place (a.k.a The Land Without Internet). On the plus side, that bought you a bonus week before the end of Steeped in Love. But now the time has come, I’m afraid. Hope you’ve enjoyed the snippets I’ve shared from the first chapter. Without further ado, here’s the final one.

Finding a light in the darkness

On Monday, February 8th, 2016, I woke up lacking the usual spring in my step. I’d just started a new job teaching Science and Physical Education at Rideau High School, and my classes were extremely challenging. To top it all off, I’d never taught Science before so I’d spent the entire weekend cramming as much information into my head as possible, and fretting, and hoping I wouldn’t show any signs of weakness. But teenagers can always smell fear. Somehow, by some miracle, I made it through the day.
