Friday, May 7, 2010


Well I am so glad it is Friday, it has been a hectic but productive week. I am rejuvenated in the area of writing. The support I have received from friends and family has been very uplifting. It has given me the confidence to try to do something, formally, that I have wanted to do for years. The writing group I am joining is one that I have come to realize is a group for support and good direction, not one to judge me and point out my inadequacies. It is all good. "Niall's Writings" is the Blog where I am going to do my writing on a subject, that subject being me mostly. I was told that I have some political leanings in my writings and I also have a memior wanting to come out. The second is the direction I am going to choose. It has always been my dream to write about my life, like every good drama (at least to me), it will be filled with humor. So for my first week I think I have done OK. I have figured out what kind of writing I am going to do so that is a huge start. Now starting tomorrow or Sunday, I will write page one of Niall's Writings. Good Luck to me. Thank you for listening.

I'm Off

So I was told, or I should say it was suggested that I give the Writers group 20 pages of my writings. Of course my first thought was I can't come up with 20 pages, after writing for 23 years, imagine not being able to come up with 20 pages. I have to remember that this is a learning process, that is why I am so honored to be included in this group, I will finally learn "how to" write in a form that people can read, one with some order, and not just my thoughts and opinions; or how I was feeling that day. I imagine this story to be funny, and with the life I have led, funny is not the first word that should come to my mind. I know today that every single thing that I went through made me who I am today, and I am OK today, and I do now find humor in the story that comes from Niall's Voice. I need to get back to the other blog, Niall's Writings, but short steps, one at a time right. Yeah that's the ticket.

Have a great day.

Writing Group

I was just invited to participate in a writing group. Of course my first thought was YOU CAN'T DO THAT, then I said a prayer and God said, oh yes you can. So I am doing it, what it is I am not sure right now. I will just show up to fulfill my dream of someday writing a book. I have been away so long from writing here. It is good to be back

Marriage Equality

So my Marriage EqualityResolution for GLBT's was consolidated with another resolution to go before the Delegate's convention in September, hopefully this will make for a better Resolution that will stand for a better chance of passing. As for the NYS Senate it looks like the Marriage Bill for GLBT people will be addressed in September, so hope still stands, maybe more so since it is taken away from the insanity happening in the Legislature at this point. Just a thought.
