So without going into full author mode and detailing out our conversation: we worked everything out, and are officially back together! I know I was overly impatient on the resolution process, but in reality, she had some genuinely valid points that she needed to think about and I needed to listen to.
Like spending too much time writing and not enough time on the relationship.
The funny thing is, I used to give my big brother hell about this all the time, because I felt like he was ignoring me for his Change series. I used to hate it, because he has always been the most important person in my life. I hated not having his attention at least some of the time. When he was writing his Change series, he kind of stayed hermited in his office and nothing else existed. We’ve actually had fights about this on several occasions.
And now here I am, doing the same damn thing.
The problem is, I love writing.
Like I promised Rebecca though: I will work really hard on balancing both a writing career and a relationship, and I know I’ll be able to manage it. It just means fine-tuning my schedule a bit. No biggie.
Anyway, writing-wise I actually got a lot done waiting for Rebecca to get here. Currently I’m about 30 seconds away from finishing the Rough Draft in the latest episode of the Voyeur series, and tomorrow after Rebecca and I go do some couple things I plan on diving into the Red Edit. I love this series, and if you haven’t started reading it yet (right now, only the first episode is available) please do so. I want you to fall in love with it too because it is not only a fun series to write but also one that is very close to my heart. It starts out a bit strange, but then, don’t all good stories?
