I'm not sure to start with a "Thank you," for checking me out, or a warning about my foul language. 

Either way, welcome! I'm Trine Daely -  Aspie* (and mother to one as well), news junkie, writer, hobby photographer, and stress magnet. I suffer from chronic pain and am looking seriously at the fact that my day job will most likely be replacing me with a touchscreen in the near future.

In looking for ways to do something I enjoy (writing) and being able to do it in a time and place that suits me, my daughter suggested Patreon. I can tell you from personal experience there is a real link between stress and pain, and gaining the ability (I hope!) to eventually do this exclusively will decrease both and increase quality of life for both of us.

I am hoping to bring you a semi-regular to regular blog, hitting on whatever topics strike my fancy, as well as some columns of a more repeating theme. I'd like to share photos, and eventually videos as well. I'm hoping I'll also get to the point that I can take up working on my novel again in addition to the blog and visuals.

I am very leery of being on video myself, a combination of self-consciousness and the fact that I value my privacy a lot, so if you're on the tier that I'll skype with, consider yourself among the elite few!

A bit of background: I grew up in North Florida, moved to Mississippi, survived Katrina there, and decided to try inland areas instead. "Snow" is a curse word in my household now. I'm adopted, twice divorced, and a single mother of a teen that could (at times) make the Pope curse. Not entirely her fault, she has a list of diagnoses that makes my head spin, but she's making progress. She's also highly intelligent, sarcastic, and socially awkward. Can't imagine where she got that from...

I was born to what is best described as the southern redneck branch of the Addams family, with a humor that can be dark and/or raunchy strongly bred in the line. I was adopted and raised by middle-class Yankees who did not always know what to do with me (Dad, you're a saint!). I tend to be fairly blunt, so if you're easily offended, this is your warning. 

I try to be active on Twitter, and while I do have a Facebook page I don't use it much. If you made it this far, thank you! I'm sure by now you've also figured out that Trine Daely is a nom de plume (and no, that doesn't mean I eat feathers). I have a poetry book that is available on other sites in several formats, and would really like to be able to dive back into the research/write/research/revise of writing my sci-fi/dark urban fantasy/post-apocalyptic books.


*Aspie: A person with Asperger's Disorder, a developmental disorder on the autism spectrum. Considered to be on the higher functioning end of the spectrum, mostly involving social skill issues. We're the bright but socially awkward people.

Wow. You're an official sponsor of my work, and I couldn't be more grateful for it. You've changed our lives!

Because you're so generous, you'll get a monthly-ish Skype group video chat with me. You know how antsy I am about video, so you know you're special!

Woot! We made a goal! I can take kiddo out to lunch and a movie. Remember when that would get you a good night out on the town?
