I know I haven’t written in my Diary for a while now, but boy do I have reasons. Said reasons start with a migraine that attacked me last Friday and went all through the weekend, and then Anne got sick and passed her myriad diseases on to me, and then I somehow managed to cut the tip of my index finger (which is absolutely crucial for writing apparently). And then, when I finally started feeling human, I threw myself into playing catch up with all the author (and personal) tasks that piled up while I was out, leaving little time or desire to write in my Diary.
Yeah, things have been hectic.
Writing-wise too. I’ve been focusing on the last part of the last revision of Family Values, a story featuring Mariah (from Naughty Cheerleaders fame) as the main character. And, I am proud to announce, I am finally happy with the way it’s going! It took a while because I kept changing things around, but the way it is now – I like it. I had to simplify it quite a bit because it was starting to feel verbally congested, streamline it some, polish the hell out of it, give it some head, and bam: it’s now acting the way I want I to.
Story of my life.
Anyway, hopefully all of you are preparing to have the Thanksgiving of your lives tomorrow. Me? I’ll be staying home with my big brother, Anne, Rebecca, and the rest of the syndicate trying to not write and just enjoy the holiday.
And playing Skyrim, of course.
I love you.
All of you.
Thank you for reading…
