You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. ~Ray Bradbury~

There are 39 days of school left.

Why do I care, you ask?

I care because I work in a school and I am ready for summer break. 2 and 1/2 months that I can hopefully devote to writing, housesitting, and a trip back east to see my family.

I should probably devote my time to searching for a full time job or at least summer work, but I need to focus my energies on writing. I'm going to put sopme real effort into finishing this project.

And speaking of "The Project", it's coming along. I've decided on a different approach than I had originally planned, and I think it will turn Far to Fall into something decent and worth the effort, instead of being just a dull and crappy project that no one will ever want to read. Leanna is a strong and beautiful MC and her story deserves to be heard.

So, fair readers, you can count the days to my writing bliss with me, while I keep trudging along.

Long Time Gone

It's been a long time since I last blogged.

It's hard not having regular access to internet. :(

Life has thrown a lot at me, including a back injury and losing one of my jobs, as well as problems with my OCD and anxiety. I haven't been writing as much as I would have liked, but I'm starting to get back into the groove.

Leanna, the MC of my current WIP just got too loud to ignore. Her story needed to be written and it needed to be written NOW. It's not been going as quickly as I would have liked, but at least there are words flowing.

I haven't had much access to a computer, so most of it has been hand written, which is more tedious than I can possibly explain, as I'm used to making handwritten notes and typing my stories rather than writing down everything. But life goes on. Words are on a page and that's what's important right now.
