Hi I’m Amy and I write. Read this and You’ll Feel Better.

Small sentient slices of life. Hear hope and say “Yeah, I get it” … “She gets it” … “We get it, together.”

Who is Amy London?

I have always been a writer.

I just never believed it.

Until Now.

For years I was a self-sufficient over-achiever with intermittent loafer tendencies. I was outgoing, loved acting, outdoor activities involving nature, and all things web design and development. I prided myself on how I didn’t need anyone to get where I was going, I was doing a mighty fine job of it myself.

All that changed one summer.

Breaking through Boundaries

A friend of mine phoned me today, unexpectedly. Earlier I had left her an annoyingly cheerful and spirited message, comprising of thinly veiled threats that if I didn’t hear back from her soon I would start stalking [...]

Unfaltering Forgiveness

March 1st, 2017 6:25pm|0 Comments

Cats do not hesitate to forgive. But they can hold some serious grudges. I took a break after hours of balancing my bills, something that I'm never very good at and it seems [...]

Realities of Resistance
