Take 5

by Olga Kieran

My oubliette is my innerchild – my 5yr old to be precise. She protects me from the elements of an adult world. Although she’s quite smart – she never feels the need to prove it. She’d rather giggle furiously as she chases butterflies during the day & fireflies at night. She can jump really high & run really fast & loves to spin until she’s dizzy & falls down…making her laugh every time. She’s as free as the wind. Divorce is not in her vocabulary nor is career choice or whether she’s a good parent or role model. Life is good – Ice Cream better. When life becomes too much……I take 5….and become 5. Its a fun place to be….even as I approach 5-0hhhhhhh.


Olga responded to my Guest Blog Challenge and as soon as I got her response I knew I had to post it. It’s so freeing and honest, making me nod my head in agreement to her words, laugh at her feistiness and give kudos to her strength. Thank you Olga for your great writing and inspiration!!!

    Olga, you make me jealous – I wish I had that inner child. Mine just sits around and pouts about not getting enough food, candy and visits from Santa…brattish, really.
    Great response to the Dare, well done.

  • I am breathing deep and sharing the first line of my (currently) unpublished book - "The Ramblin' Hand of Sherry Anne." After rewriting 75% of my last draft in three months, edits are finally fucking finished and I feel calm and peaceful and light. Typically, I tend to not want to share for fear of failure BUT I am freaking psyched. No more white knuckling this novel. Here goes nothin'. #teasertuesday #amwriting #amediting #manuscript #writerlife #writer #writermama #novel #publishedorbust
