Sometimes life just gets in the way

I can't believe how long it's been since I wrote a blog. The guilt is eating at me. But just gets in the way. The end of August was my mom's birthday, which meant I got to spend a lovely couple of days in my hometown. But then reality hit, and I had to find a place to live, pack, and move within two weeks. All with minimal help from my boyfriend who has been working 12-13 hour days 6 days a week. This past weekend was spent moving and trying to deal with everything that goes along with that plus working. Somehow I still managed to get a little writing done. Then yesterday, everything went wrong. Stressful day of work, stress of finishing the move, waiting for the cable guy, dealing with the electric company, and then my mom calls. My uncle passed away unexpectedly. Now I'm dealing with the emotions of that (there are way too many to get into) and trying to figure out how to get to Missouri for the funeral with no money.

Do you ever wish you could just sit and write all day and never have to deal with your real life? It's much easier to put your characters in stressful situations than to live them yourself!

Totally agree with you on the whole making characters go through stressful situations--anything that doesn't involve me getting hurt is my cup of tea :)

I'm happy to see you back around here, and I sincerely hope the best for you and your family. Hugs.
