Those of you who’ve followed me for a long time know that I’ve had to put writing on hold before. My husband was dying, everything went nuts, we had to move – writing was the last thing on my mind. When surgery was necessary to save my husband’s life, I had to put off finishing NOTTE.
That was one of the hardest seasons I’ve ever been through.
So here we are now: husband is alive, job is secure, we’re living in NYC…
And now another family member has grown ill to the point of death. I’m heading off tomorrow to help as much as I can.
Listen up: This time will be different.
Last time, I really didn’t have the spoons to write.
This time, I do.
I’m managing my Fibromyalgia. I’m exercising. I’m eating right. I’m tired, and this upcoming season will probably make me more tired.
But damn it all, I have spoons.
I am not going to stop writing this time around.
It’ll take more discipline than I’ve ever had before, but I’ll do it.
Mark my words: this time is different. NOTTE is gonna be finished this year, or I’m a mummy.
And I’m many things, but I am not a mummy.
