Hey everyone! Just stopping in really quick to let you know that I've been writing! Alot! I'm hoping that I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. I have new summer hours at work so instead of two days off, I now have three whole days ! That extra day is really beneficial in the writing department.
I am getting closer to ending my manuscript everyday... If I stuck with my original plan it would be done already but I didn't want to end the story there. I decided to add even more to it. I love being back with my characters.
Hopefully, I will finish soon.
And of course you will all be the first to know if (when) I do!
P.s. Got the paperback copy of Dead Friends Walking in the mail yesterday. So excited!

Hello Everyone!!! Happy Spring almost Summer! I haven't been on much lately, as you all can tell and I apologize for that. These past few months have been hard on me. I was really getting back into writing then my old injury in my neck/shoulder flared up, and I had to take a break from writing again to let it heal again.
That lasted about a month and a half. Sometime in April, I started back into the sequel of Dead Friends Walking but then on 4/29 we had to put our dog down due to a terminal illness. Losing Loki hit me pretty hard. He was my first dog I ever lost. I do not have children. My dogs are my children. They are my everything so currently my heart is broken.
I took a whole month off for myself and to spend quality time with my other dogs. I haven't given up on writing. I miss writing. I just really, really miss my dog.
I am going to try to start back into my story, but I am not rushing it and I am not forcing myself. If it's a beautiful day outside, I'm not going to miss out on it. I am going to put my writing to the side again and go out to the creek with the rest of my dogs. Or go for a walk.
For so long I was wrapped up in my stories, and writing, that I realized I missed out on a lot of things. I understand some of you are waiting for my sequels, and that's why I will continue to write. For you.
And I understand that my soul needs writing, needs that creative outlet, so I will continue to write for me as well.
I hope to finish something soon, but in the meantime it's supposed to be another beautiful sunny day so I'm going to go take the dogs to the park.
