Earlier this year, a friend of my daughter’s killed himself. Since then, we know of three other kids who have tried. Today, one of those succeeded. This boy wasn’t a friend of my daughter’s, but he was a close friend of one of her best friends. He also picked a horrifying, painful way to die.
My daughter is on the phone with her hysterical friend. These kids are dealing with so much death and so young.
So, I’m feeling sad tonight.
I was earlier, too. I’m going into an office every day for a couple of weeks and today, I was physically ill and exhausted, so the afternoon was rough. I had an unbelievably bad headache.
I’m sooo ready to get this next book in the series going.
It’s outlined and I’ve roughed a bunch of scenes. I’m really hoping ‘book one’ finds an agent and a publishing house in the near future. I could have a three chapter submission to go along with the synopsis in one solid week of writing. All ready to go. So I’m frustrated.
Frustrated by a lof of things lately. <g>
The good news is this book is going to roll out of my mind with incredible speed–once I get my schedule straightened out. The hubby and I are working out exactly what we need, so I may be able to slim down my workload very soon.
I’ve always been able to make the time for writing–no matter what– but I’m slammed even for me. Even the weekends are completely full up for the next two months.
Sooo…. since this is already a rough post, I must admit that I’ve been unable to get a story finished for the Apex Contest next week. This is a first for me. I’m always able to pull together short fiction and a challenge gets me going like nothing else. I did have a couple of readers take me up on the challenge. I sincerely hope you’ve had better luck and I will be rooting for you to win. 🙂
