Someone wrote me a very nice email a week or two ago and I meant to write them back an equally eloquent response, but unfortunately I didn’t get that done. So, I thought I would mention in on here. It was complimentary about my writing and it made my day to read it. Lately, I have had a rush of people registering on the blog as well, and I appreciate that the interest that is still there despite my severe neglect. As a hostess of a blog, I’ve been noticeably absent for quite some time.
I have had yearly struggles. It all started in 2011 when I made a decision that led me into one horrible experience after another. It was like a domino effect and a gift that just keeps on giving. I am still recovering from that idiotic decision and things seem to be getting worse rather than better, but I keep on hanging in there. I’ve got a job right now with a fairly high hourly wage but with no real benefits attached to it and quite a bit of paperwork that I have to do on the side that I am not directly paid for. For now, this job works well for me. It is flexible, and I need that.
I have to thank my dad for being there for me this past 6 months. He’s been an outstanding help to me. My children have been there for me as well. Like I said, it’s been an interesting journey.
Some of you wonder if I will ever get back to writing my fiction. The truth is that I am stuck on a chapter of The Jackson’s. I know what I need to write, but I don’t want to write it. I know where the story is going and what the ending will be, but I hate the way it sounds when I write it. It all reads fake to me and the words are not coming easy. Every now and then I get it out and tinker some more with it. That’s what the big holdup is with my writing at the moment. Hopefully I will post that chapter soon and move on.
My eyes are closing now, it’s bedtime. Goodnight.
