It’s December and honestly, it’s a month I mostly hate. My favorite season and I hate it. Especially now. Most people would ask why and I would just grump them until they left me alone.
Now, I don’t think that should be what I do. In fact, it’s essentially the opposite of what I should do As a sufferer of mental illness.
I should help to #breakthestigma of Mental Illness.
Now, I thought my last post was long, this one takes the cake for the longest thing like this I’ve written on a blog or in a public place in a long while.

And as usual, my posting has been behind. Once again, apologies.
I do have plans for May, though. I plan to submit a short story to Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine. I also plan to finish a cluster of short stories and possibly self publish them, I haven’t entirely decided.

I didn’t quite mean to fall off the planet again, but I went from relatively calm dual off days to working 6 days a week and having far too much to take care of in the 12 hours I had available to me on my lone day off.
Add into this chaos a visit from my parents, and needless I didn’t get anything done for Camp NaNo, I got far more stressed out than usual, and the last two weeks rather just sucked.
Anyways, I’ll be back on track within this next week. I have a little bit of stuff to take care of, but I should be able to get everything together to resume the weekly prompts.
And since I’ve been waiting for breakfast for 2 hours now, I’m going to vanish. My breakfast company is here finally! <3
Flowers usually, but here in Memphis, April showers bring May floods.
I’ve been very busy this past month, and I haven’t managed to get anything done for “me”. This past month has kind of sucked, and it almost got a whole lot worse. As I sit here in my favorite corner of a favorite store surrounded by friends, I just about had a major meltdown.
My much beloved Alienware machine wasn’t booting up at all. I had power through the cord, partial power in the battery, and when I hit the power button, NOTHING HAPPENED. I counted to fifteen. NOTHING STILL. I hit the button again, and STILL NOTHING. So I got up and asked if the tech wiz was going to be coming in today, and they said yes. I relaxed one degree. I commented to people that I was going to have a major meltdown if I couldn’t get my computer to boot. Then I returned to my corner, flipped her over again, took out the battery and put it back in. Then turned Alien back upright, and opened the lid. I hit the power button again. HOLY WORD. LIGHTS!!!! Alien started to boot up then. And announced that she hadn’t shut down properly to begin with.
Guess who is now going to wait until the laptop is completely powered off before she closes it again. This morning scared the all and holy hells outta me. (By the way, after my scare, I lose a bit of my language filter, so be aware the are a few instances of ‘foul’ language from here on)
Anyways, there is a reason for me posting about this. Beyond the obvious, I need to get it off my chest, sort of deal. Why, you ask? Because it brings up a major point that writers need to remember!
