I wanted to give everyone an update because I know some folks have been worried. I’m being brief because I should have been in bed 4 hours ago, but I stayed up late writing for the first time in… well… a long time.
The news is that things are finally looking up.
I’ve moved to a new place which is great for me emotionally because the last place had… Well, memories that were hurting me. I’m starting fresh, and for the first time in a long time, I’m starting to feel like the hole this year left in me is starting to fill.
I also got a second job!
It’s a full job that seems like it’ll be good for me and… well, it’s temporary! It’ll go from September to March, which is what I want because I want to make sure my healing goes well, and it wasn’t while my writing was my only source of income and thus I was stressed all the time because I couldn’t write because all the pressure was on writing and etc etc etc.
My plan is to keep writing as much as I can while doing my second job, and then once the temp period ends, I will go back to freelancing hopefully more equipped and with less personal and immensely painful life events going on every month.
Basically, I think I’m okay now. I’m not healed, but for the first time, I feel like I’m Me again. And I want to keep it that way.
Lots of love as always, and thank you for your patience and support,
P.S. To those going to EFNW this week, I’ll be hanging out at the bookstore booth practically the entire con.
