Well, the last post I left on here was a bit heavy, wasn’t it?
A lot has gone on since my last post – a lot of turmoil and grief. Honestly, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I started to feel myself again.
The things I went through are not something I’m sharing right now – it is still private, and personal, and I don’t think I need to turn all of my experiences into some great piece of writing.
But, here I am in 2019. Sorry for the hiatus.
In recent events, however, I have much to tell.
I spoke with a well-known author, who I know through some family members. I meant it as a casual conversation, but then he kindly asked about my writing and, long story short, reminded me that I need to kick my ass into gear and just keep going. There’s no such thing as “perfect”.
One of our ferrets, Yuffie, had an extreme medical scare. There were emergency vets involved, large bills, and manly sleepless night. This all began on the eve of our trip to Disney World, and thankfully my mother took excellent care of all of our pets – above and beyond excellent care, really.
As mentioned above, we went to Disney World. It was my first trip there, and I am obsessed. I am proud to admit that I sobbed like a baby while watching the Happily Ever After show projected on Cinderella’s castle in the Magic Kingdom one of the nights.
I run now? I mean, I did run a 10k at Disney World (Epcot, specifically) and I think I like running now. I haven’t made up my mind about it yet. I’m still a hobbit at heart, but may be in need of some adventures.
In a few weeks, I’ll be attending a Chicago Women in Publishing event to gain some insight on becoming published and just in general getting back into the writing scene out here.
I’m sure I have some other interesting things to tell, but they’re failing me at the moment.
We’ll see what comes of 2019 – it’s just begun, and it has already been a bit crazy.
