EVERYTHING IS TEMPORARY & A STORY IN PARTS

Anyone else feeling rushed? Like time is running out? I’ve been having this feeling for a while. Think it may be because of our dear president, and the fact that there are countries that hate us because of him. There are bomb threats. And terrorist attacks (and I count ANY violent acts of prejudice as terrorism). I try to look away sometime. Distract myself with other things to not be bummed out. I have plenty of things to be grateful for:

My mom had a successful emergency surgery. 

I have a job that allows me to write while at work. 

My household is healthy and happy. 

I’m back to writing my own books. 

I’ve found some pretty good audiodramas to listen to:)

There’s more but you get the point. 

Looking at the positives. Isn’t that what they say? And while that is great and all, there is still too much to weigh us down.

We have to keep in mind that the peaceful moments are temporary, and so are the dark ones.

It’s all temporary.

Anyway, I’ve been working on a long short story aside from a main project I’ve got going. The main project is for an audiodrama competition. The short story wasn’t supposed to happen right now. It’s so hard for me to stick to one thing at a time.

The story is about a grown-up brother and sister who still live together, and have an unhealthy habit of competing for their mother’s affection. The short story will be released in parts, as I write it, here on the blog. It will not be perfect, but I’ll try hard to make it as typo-free as possible.

One more thing! I want to try something different with my email list. Every month, I’ll pick 5 people to send special postcards to. It’s a Thank You! So if you’re on that list, you’ll be getting a email soon. If you want to be on that list, enter your email below.
