NO TIME TO BE INSECURE ABOUT WRITING....

HI All,

Well another month has sailed by. We are in OCTOBER...can you believe it!

Thanks for all the warm wishes during my kidney stone attack. Thankfully that has been resolved, but once again I have been inflicted with crippling arthritis, this time in the shoulders. What a living nightmare. But we must persevere and not let it get to us.

This past month has been one crazy ride. First, I closed on my new condo... YAY... I even managed to have the new flooring and carpets installed and tore out the kitchen in record time_under two weeks. But I couldn't finish the painting because of my arthritis and I have to wait a month for my new kitchen. Moving was a HORROR, but thankfully I lived through it. Now the fun begins, digging myself out of all the boxes piled high all over the place!

So with health issues, moving, etc. I haven't had time to think about writing. After the excitement of the PITCH, sadly nothing materialized, BUT, I was still thrilled to be chosen and apparently I still have my work cut of for me before publication. As we ALL KNOW, each of us has a different journey. Once I settle I will back into writing...

Please visit the other IWSG members. We all have so much to share and learn...

I hope everyone is HEALTHY and enjoying the new season....

  2. From one crappy ailment to the next - sorry about your shoulder. Plus a move on top of it. You're one tough cookie to handle it all. Sorry the pitch didn't work out for you. It's all in the timing.
