Some of you may have noticed a slight shift in my writing style lately. That has been on purpose. As a writer, of sorts, there are different muscles I like to flex occasionally. I like to see how strong they are, to determine if they can carry their own weight. Overall I have been pleased with the product produced and generated some good conversations. I still have a long way to go.

I have been writing about ANGST. This horrible five letter word that we all feel sometimes is even horrible to pronounce. Imagine feeling it. I have also been exploring the darker side of passion. Now that has been fun. I even acquired a male’s perspective on the one piece I completed and with his valuable input and opinion it was pushed beyond what I even hoped for. I have several other additions in the works, but those really take it out of me, so you’ll have to be patient.

I have received some private feedback from close friends worried about my mental health. I can assure one and all that I am the same person that writes those perky, funny pieces. She’s still around 🙂

I am experiencing a growth spurt. And I like it!

So stay engaged. I promise, it’ll be worth it.

Yours always,

Madeline Laughs

    Angst is a great creative fuel. I often wonder now that I don’t have as much in my life if my art will be as strong.

    Growth spurts do hurt and cause angst sometimes. I would say I’m going through a major growth spurt myself! Though I am hesitant to post on my blog about it because it can be an uncomfortable issue… I deeply hope that I will be able to write about the cause of my current angst sometime this summer.

    I’m glad to hear you are doing well. Writing is a terrific creative outlet, as well as a healthy one. I can’t wait to read your future posts. 🙂 *hugs*


    • I’m so glad you found your voice and wrote that piece! I shared it in a discussion group I’m a part of and it struck a nerve. Hang in there and let me know how it goes. Big hugs!!!

    I find it easier to write about angst than humorous stuff. Maybe I need to stretch my humor muscles a bit. Of course, that would require me to actually break through my writer’s block and start writing again. 😉


    • We compliment each other perfectly! I find it so much easier to be funny. When I write the pieces you’ve read I sit here and literally cry through it. It’s difficult to write without feeling it. I wish you godspeed in getting past your block sweetie! I see you’re still posting and making progress so it must be ending soon 🙂
