I wrote this in October of 2006:
I’m sorry for the lack of posting. I haven’t got much heart these days. Money worries, cat worries, job worries (still a temp, no end in sight), stress up the wazoo. I know there are bigger problems in the world, but y’know, these are my problems, and they seem pretty big to me.
If I could run away from home for a week, I’d do it. Unfortunately, that’s not an option.
That was during the end of Gracie’s illness, her misdiagnoses by the vet I used to go to, and my search for a permanent job and the beginning of my effort to get out of debt.
I will also point out that I wasn’t writing a single word of fiction at that time.
I just passed the 50,000-word mark yesterday. I am weeks away from finishing my novel, and only a few months away from e-publishing it. I’m developing a marketing plan and looking at new WordPress themes for the makeover Yourish.com will receive. I thought of a great regular feature for my writing blog.
Yeah, times are much better now than they were when I wrote that post. And let us all say: Amen.
