All that I am, all that I ever was…

I am more than my mental health. I am more than my homelessness. I am more than any one aspect of me. I am Addy. And this is…

1 Photo (of me…)


Is this cheating? Technically it is a photograph of me, for that is indeed my wonderous shadow.

Sure, it isn’t a recognisable image (as some would probably expect from the prompt) but at least you don’t have to cast your eyes over my ugly mug! Instead, just bask in the spectacular scenery of the Wilson’s Prom.

Challenge completed! :-)

The next challenge…

For some inexplicable reason – perhaps due to my somewhat odd mood at the moment – I have decided to take on three challenges next month! If I succeed, I will treat myself to a cupcake (and/or a pat on the back, depending on what I can afford). If I fail, so be it…there’s always December!

WordPress Daily Prompts              
Throughout the month of November I will be taking on the daily prompts WordPress post on their Daily Post blog. In the past these prompts have included: What’s the one thing you hope other people never say about you? and Write about a time you had a Goldilocks experience, exploring different choices and finally arriving at “just right.”

So who knows what delights I will face over the coming thirty days?

You can find the posts I publish under this challenge in the category ‘WordPress Postaday Nov2012′ :)

I only discovered the existence of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) last week so my decision to partake in this challenge could be a futile one. However, considering I am pushing myself to clear the various obstacles blocking my road to recovery (my fear of my writing being a primary one), I feel this a productive challenge to take on.

You can follow my progress on the blog I have set up to house my novel attempt: Little Bit of Red or follow the weekly updates that I will publish here to keep track of my progress.

30 Days of Kink              
In a departure from my usual blog challenges, this November I have decided to explore my sexual side with a blog challenge discovered on myturnto’s blog Growing Up Little.

Given the nature of these posts they will not be to everyone’s taste (and will be password protected) but as I continue on this journey of mine, I think it’s important to devote some time to exploring this side of my personality and its effect on my MH.

If you would like to read these posts, please contact me via the Password Protected Page to receive the password.

  1. Definitely NOT cheating … a very telling self-portrait. I find I can breath easier when I am outdoors, especially in the bush. I did something similar a while back


  2. Oh my goodness, Addy, you are feeling ambitious, aren’t you? Good for you!

    I have decided not to try NaNoWriMo this year but I am anxious to see how you make out.

    I am going to look into the thirty days of kink though – I hope you won’t be upset if I steal that idea too? :)


    • Think I need to push myself at the moment otherwise I can see myself siezing up with the writing completely. This will be my first NaNoWriMo attempt so I’m not sure how I’ll go with it but am gonna give it my best shot. A couple of thousand words a day should be doable, especially as I don’t have to worry too much about quality at this stage.

      No worries about stealing the kink idea, I borrowed it from someone else anyway :)


  3. Not cheating! I’m going to try some of these as well!
