About Me & This Thing I Do Here


Hello, my name is Cheney


Nope, no mistake there. That’s really my name.

Yes, my first name.

I’m a single mom, writer, and web designer  oh heck, just trying to figure it all out while residing on the Connecticut shore, and I’ve been making bad choices for myself since before this Dick ruined my name.

After years of slinging pancakes and living paycheck to paycheck, it finally occurred to me in one of the dark hours of 2016 that I should try to make a living with the things I love doing just for fun. I left my last job in October of 2016 and I’m not looking back.

In my free time, I like long walks on the beach, reading big fat books, and writing novel after novel but never really finishing anything I start.

Somehow, some way, I’m going to make a living writing.

Interested? Read on! Let’s ditch our bosses and day jobs, do what we love for a living, and let’s make our lives suck a little less.


So what’s this happening here, is this a blog?

Well, I guess it’s more like a log.

A timeline.

An internet-based keepsake box of the things I’ve written about, thought of, or complained about since the summer of ’17 cause it was about time to retire the last decade’s worth of blog posts.

There will be lots of quotes, because I like quotes, and there will be lots of links to my writing elsewhere, because I do a lot of writing elsewhere, and you know, it isn’t good for SEO to post the same things in multiple places.

Hopefully, there will be more photos!

And happiness!

And unicorns shooting happy, glittery rainbows out of their unicorn asses!

But for now, as we move into winter, bear with me while I struggle through this worst season, while I struggle with depression and anxiety, while I struggle with homeschooling my disabled daughter, while I quite simply struggle every day with wanting to remain alive in the world that I don’t recognize or like very much anymore.

It might just be more fun than it sounds, maybe. But thanks for being here with me, anyway.

Thanksgiving Day, 2017

  1. Facendo un giro qui e la, mi sono imbattuta nel tuo scrivere.. mi piace e conto di ripassare, sempre che a te vada. Alla prossima.


  2. Connecticut shore, eh? Before moving here to the frozen Northeast Kingdom in VT, CT was home. I lived all over that state until about a quarter century ago when I bid farewell to New Haven and settled in where I hope to remain for whatever time’s left me. Of course My Beloved Sandra, a Tropicalian type, has other plans. We’ll see. I’m enjoying your blog very much!
