Welcome to the graveyard shift at Shotterlay General Hospital.
It’s chucking-out time at the bars on Valentine’s weekend, and chucking up time down at the hospital. The poor, sick and infirm in the waiting area are revolting… in more ways than one! Soon, Shotterlay’s Accident & Emergency department won’t be so much A-OK, as DOA.
None of this will stop Sangita Gallagher, though. She’s the hospital’s charge nurse and runs an incredibly tight ship; expediently plugging holes in the paperwork, shift patterns and her patients’ gory wounds.
Tonight’s medical mayhem will be journalist Joy Attwood’s toughest assignment yet. It’ll involve copious amounts of violence, blood, vomit, mucus, amniotic fluid, lacerations, fractures, amputations, heart attacks, fornication and pulling things out of unwashed bottoms.
It’s absolute chaos and should really come with a trigger warning! 💥Join Us!💥 We are having the release party Thursday March 30th from 6pm to 8pm EST in the Drama Free Community Group on Facebook! There are going to be a number of very unique giveaways! Some of which have never been seen!

Almost every morning, I start out my day with journaling, even before I fiction write. This helps me to sort out my thoughts, tackle issues that are plaguing me, and to make goals for myself so I stay on track. I love that this is a place just for me where I can write authentically and unapologetically. This particular journal is rather huge. I've been writing in it since last July, and it's almost filled up. Once it's done, it will go in the drawer with all the other journals, and then I'll start a new one. Sometimes I even look back in them, noting the areas I've grown, as well as the places I seem stuck in (I definitely have both). If you journal, what do you love most about it? #journaling#deardiary#writersofinstagram#writerslife#justwrite#authorsofinstagram
On writing and fear:
"...I am quite sure that if you tell the truth, you will feel some‐ thing real. “Feeling something real” is where I prefer to live, trying to palpate the small moments of life, the moments of intuition, the places where we fail and where we change. Right now my life is packed with middle‐aged friends engaged in all manner of dangerous behaviors again—the ones they forgot we did in our twenties. They insist that they are merely trying to feel something. I suggest honestly writing about your life. You’ll feel something. I promise." Marion Roach Smith, The Memoir Project •

Are you thinking global? How about mobile?
Hint: you'd better be! If you're not convinced, check out these random factoids:
1️⃣ More than two-thirds of the world's population has a smartphone
2️⃣ More than half the world's web traffic comes from mobile
3️⃣ More than one in five across the globe have shopped online in the past 30 days
4️⃣ Worldwide, there are more than 1.86 billion monthly active users (MAUs) on Facebook
The takeaway: think global, act mobile.
Let the light in, love
Let the light in.
Let it shine
on your body
and bring out
all your features:
good and bad
Your sunset skin,
your rightly shaped face
and wrongly spelt tattoos,
the birthmarks that
not to take up modelling
and your nose,
pierced with no earring
And I will reveal
my falling hair,
my rising eyes,
chapped winter lips,
a missing wisdom tooth
from my bottom left jaw,
the mark from
my appendix operation
and my hot chocolate skin
let the light in.
So we can see
eye to eye,
skin to skin,
heart to heart
After spending most of this morning researching Helsinki and one of its districts in particular; after having incorporated said research into a particularly sell written chapter, my laptop decides to turn itself out and loose all those pages despite me having hit save several times before it happened. Now I lost all that work and I'm really pissed about it.
Life is so subtle and amazing sometimes, that you wake up one morning and realize that you are walking through doors that you prayed would open one day.
When I woke up this morning,I got this message about my journal. I honestly almost forgot that it's out in the world, but that's why I wrote it and keep sharing my story, because it is some comfort in knowing someone understands you and that your story is the same.
I couldn't imagine a better morning. Taking in a great read with an inspiring view. #reading#booklove#motivation 🌆👩🏻🏫
Books have this magical ability to take you into a different world 🌎 where you can step away from reality for a bit. It's a nice little vacation you can take right at home and it's something that I always crave. 🌺
That's why we read right? 📚There is a character(s) that we get attached to, with a strong connection that emotionally tugs at us. But there are always lessons to be learned as well so don't stay hidden behind a book - use what inspires you in the stories you read and create the life you always wanted. Fuel yourself to be the best you can be and make your dreams reality. #lifegoals#lifestyle#mindset 🙌
What protagonist do you hold dear to your heart? Mine will forever be Lisbeth Salander 🐉#goodmorning#booklove
Today on ye' olde blog, I ponder the validity and entitlement of my voice. So often I police what I think. I question how much I know as compared to others. Or how witty or wise I'm being. Is what I say "enough" to say.
We know the answer is OF COURSE. But being aware of this battle of opinion entitlement is the first step to winning it.
I want to hear myself say what I need to say. I need to hear myself have an opinion and know I'm entitled to have one. And I want to show my daughter it's ok to speak for yourself or anyone who needs a voice.

Accessing File: Finding a Heart.
I always came in on time. But on time in any military unit is always considered late. But by the books I met their standard, yet all this does is leave room for them to ridicule me. They call our unit in the Royal army the Tin Men. We are supposed to be an elite group of soldiers with a history dating back to a group called the Knights of the guard. In this unit it's taboo if you don't exceed the standard. They preach that you are supposed to be dedicated and that anyone can exceed their bio-mechanical limitations if they have heart. Since I cannot meet the bar that they've raised, they have dubbed me the "Tin Man with the Tiny Heart". It's microscopic, they tell me. But this does nothing but frustrate me even more. I wanted to make a difference. I've wanted so long to protect the ones I love, no matter what it takes. They don't know what I have been through just to meet this minimum standard that they consider useless. I thought this unit was supposed to be a team. But even though I am offically a Tin Man, and they can't say I am not, they constantly exclude me. This does nothing but destroy me self confidence. It does nothing but make me believe I am worthless and that I do in fact possess an inferior heart. But there again, another epiphany came to me like the one when I was working the farm fields. I was starting to let people tell me the size of me own heart when in all reality the couldn't even feel one solid beat. They couldn't feel how heavy it was with the grief that they caused. But I could feel it. And because I could feel me own heart, I realized that I was the only one who could judge the size of that heart. I was the only one who could find me own rhythm. And after that, it still wasn't easy to deal with being the outcast, but eventually their negativity stopped phasing me. I stopped letting them tear me apart. I found that if I chose to ignore their cynicism and keep me own original goals in mind then I could have peace in knowing who really had the tiny hearts. Today I am just a Tin Man, but tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow I will be closer to becoming The Tin Man. Love, Alec.
