Making Memories Watching All the Marvel Movies in Order

I wanted to give a little background before I get into the true point of this post. When I first got married, my wife at the time, had three children. A son 13, and daughters 11 and 4. Since day one I treated them as my own. I too had been part of a household that experienced divorce. My mother’s second husband was a wonderful man who treated me as his own. And I soon was, as he adopted me when I was 7-years-old. So I knew what it was like. Unfortunately, my marriage didn’t last but that wasn’t the end of my relationship with my step-children. <—- That will be the only time I use the step reference throughout this post because they became my children, I lived for them and just because their mother and I split didn’t change that. I divorced her, not them.

Writer’s Life: 10 Ways To Deal With Critics

When I first decided to post my writing online for public view, I had no idea it would lead to pursuing a professional career. I thought a few friends and some family members would enjoy the posts and that would be that. Now, a little more than 5 years have passed and my fans and followers are over 100K. The number still amazes me. And there are days when the Internet and its social media algorithms make me question it all – but I am always grateful – day in and day out.

Being in the public eye I am an open book. And as an artist, I am of course my own worst enemy and critic. That doesn’t mean haters don’t find me. And when they do, I take it best I can because most are just trolls trying to stir the pot.
