Ok, let's get started!
Pain-free periods are a thing.
Yes. You read that right. It's possible to have a PAIN-FREE period! Like, not even a slight cramp. I had no clue!
For most of my life, that time of the month meant cramping so severe it was blinding. I would lay in bed massaging my legs, begging them to function so I could stand up and get ready for work. Nausea was constant and severe, it made choking down food a painful job. And, then there was the fatigue. A crushing weight, ever present, the feeling of an elephant riding on my shoulders and the skin on my face feeling like the melting wax of a lit candle. With fatigue comes the feeling of being in a tunnel, with your daily life far away at the opening, where you desperately struggle to see and hear your surroundings. This was often my first day of my period and it was always a day to just survive. The following days of my period would always be much better but with what I now realize was heavy bleeding, very heavy.
I love making books for the Amazon Kindle marketplace.
And, recently I've gotten into making low and medium content books. That way, instead of slaving over an instructional book or dreaming up a fictional story, I can simply make a journal or a workbook in a fraction of the time.
Earlier this year, I got the idea for my Telling Tales series. Telling Tales is a series of books to help anyone exercise their creative writing muscles. For Telling Tales: Faces I created 32 portraits using artificial intelligence and machine learning. Each portrait is paired with blank journal pages where you can write your own story for the character or work through character development by using any of the prompts in the last 10 pages of the book.
I had two specific uses in mind when creating this workbook.
And, here are some of the portraits.
This is the first installment of the series. The next will be perfect for halloween if I can finish in time.
