So after a very emotional and physically trying few weeks I am back. I’ve been away due to a number of issues. I had a few personal things going on. I had to have some medical procedures done including minor surgery. Of course such a thing can be very taxing on the mind and body and it definitely took a toll on me as I found myself battling depression again. I’ve had a history with depression but even I was amazed at the depths of how far down I found myself. My poor family was amazingly understanding and patient but it’s still something that irritates me, knowing that I put them through it. Be that as it is I literally felt the ‘clouds’ of depression dissipate and it was a beautiful feeling.
I have since added a new blog challenge; one my friend Julie of Rogue Mission created for some of us bloggers. I know I was unable to complete June’s challenge but I try my best not to beat myself up for ‘failures’ and rather choose to be gentle with myself, knowing that I am human…which is to be imperfect. I’m eager to begin July with fresh eyes, a zealous attitude, and fruitful writing.
I have also began my third novel, second in the ‘The Watcher’s Keep’ series with my co-writer William of Will’s Eye View and I’m ecstatic about it. I’m still doing some much-needed editing and agent shopping for the other two books.
Some great news! I am one class away from finishing my coursework and beginning my field experience towards my Masters in Professional Counseling. If you are a student you will understand my eagerness to be completely done with textbook reading and incessant studying. LOL I’ve landed myself a brilliant place for my internship and I can’t wait to begin applying all I’ve learned and continuing to learn!
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to you for visiting my websites, both Novel Chic and Bite My Book and to say that I am back!
