Déjà Vu Blogfest 2014 is hosted by DL Hammons, and its purpose is to re-share one of your favorite posts from 2014, or a post that you feel went without notice.
Now... I don't have a long list of followers so many of my posts go unnoticed <<cue collective awe>>, but I do have a few favorite posts that I would like to re-share. I've narrowed it down to three posts, one real-life blog entry and two short stories. After reviewing the three post, the two short stories really couldn't compare to the real-life entry. My absolute favorite post of 2014, ironically, and you'll know why it's ironic once you read it, is: IWSG : Writing During a Tragedy (May 6th, 2014)
My mother-in-law passed away in late March, unexpectedly, and it hit my husband pretty hard. The post is about how I used writing to cope with the loss, and how it helped my husband, in a way, move on. I believe it's the most heartfelt post I ever put up on my blog, or anywhere really. There are several entries about my kids, my family, and other things going on in my life, even about my dwindling "writing career", but this one was different. I have never exposed my weaker self before, and those who personally know me know that I almost NEVER let my weaknesses show. That's probably why it's my favorite post, though it shouldn't be. It's a paradox.
