So, I deal with stress by writing. I put my head down and feverishly comb through old rough drafts and outlines, then, when I find something that strikes a chord in me, bleed onto the keyboard for the next couple of hours.
Or, in days like today, eight. I accomplished a lot of writing during that time, even finishing two short stories that I’ll be releasing under a pen name (my Patreon subscribers know what I’m talking about, and will get them for free as hush money 😅). One of them is really hot, while the other is… well, disturbing. It has its hot moments, but for the most part its pretty dark.
It’s called projecting, I’m told.
All that writing was therapeutic. And my day seemed to brighten as I channeled all that negative energy into my (well, my pen name’s) books. The most significant highlight being that the audiobook version of Amore: A Love Story is finally complete. I approved it, and now the narrator and I are just waiting for Audibles approval so it can go on sale! I also posted some NSFW pictures of my Skyrim character on Patreon.

Happy times. 🤗
By the way, if you haven’t devoted any of your mental and spiritual energy to the victims of the recent volcanic eruption in Hawaii, please do so. To the best of my knowledge, no one has been killed, but around 1,500 people have lost their homes and possessions, and that can be devastating. Trust me. I know. So, send some positivity their way, and try and not take your belongings for granted. They can quickly and easily be taken away from you.
Now, on a more positive note: I love you. All of you.
And thank you for reading. 💖
