Today, I went to visit an old friend at the cemetary.
Two years today, it’s been his home, and I just now felt up to saying goodbye. It was a lot harder than I expected.
I couldn’t say the words, but I managed to make the horrible truth a little more real. Sometimes letting go takes a while. This one particular death will always haunt me, I think…and maybe that’s why I’m procssing it in bits.
(All that stuff is his, by the way.)
But what is life without loving others and grieving their absence.
I’m so glad to have the words flowing again. 9300 words plus of the 50k on Blood & Sex 4.
So far today, I had to deal with a neighbor shooting my Doxie, emotional moments too from the one year annivetsary of my
Grandma Darlene’s death. Then I put all that to the craft.
Another bit of editing a scene that didn’t feel right. Fighting Jonas out of the scenes as usual. I swear, Im gonna give him his own series one day!
Plus, I re-read my story in an upcoming anthology. I’m so excited, and will give you more information,on that soon. For now, I’m going back to my fantasy world for a little peace.
Have a good Halloween?
I’m hoping today is the start of a new life to my blogging. During the last two years, Ive faced some daunting challenges, interesting hurdles, and shocking occurances. Among them have been the birth of my second child, a historic tornado outbreak here, and the deaths of eight close friends and family members. This week another life hangs in the balance as someone very close to me tried to take her own life. She is still in ICU, but we are hopeful.
Tonight, I am setting up this new Android phone and working on notes for the new Blood & Sex book. Its plot has changed over time, but this hero really has me in his greedy little grasp. In short, I love him. 🙂 He is possibly the most vivid since Jonas for me.
So, Im off to spend a little screen time with him. Goodnight!
