It’s been too long.
Every time I looked at the date of my last entry, that’s what went through my mind. It has been too long, but I want to get back into doing this. I feel like my mind is losing its edge, and maybe—just maybe—putting my thoughts down on a regular basis will make them feel less ephemeral and difficult to sort.
It’s the brain fog, really. My health isn’t getting better, [in fact I’ve been diagnosed with two new conditions since we last chatted] and we are even moving on to chemo in an effort to shut this thing down. Add to my own illness things like our apartment being set on fire and my son’s own autoimmune disease, and you can see why I haven’t written in a while.
While I was pseudo-offline, I finished and released Feline Warriors volume 2, and a coloring book. It doesn’t look like much, only being two things, but at least it is something.
I need to update a lot of things: my social media pages, my shop, this website… All the work was really daunting, especially on no sleep, depression, and tons of pain—so I avoided it.
I have been drawing which is good, but I feel like I am falling behind on my writing. I long for the days when I wasn’t in pain and had all the time in the world to be creative. But I am here, and I have to work in the confines of what I’ve got. I have no plans to go anywhere, so even if I do have some long, questionable pauses, you can expect me to pop back up eventually.
