Time Marches On…

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.

My life

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.

  2. Hey Mel, this post was sad to read. I had just gone through your blog and it was marvelous. Your guides, especially, were eye-opening. As a fellow Light Novel writer, it pains me that you’re going through such hard times. I hope for your speedy recovery.

  3. I am saddened to hear about your current circumstances, but I just want to say thank you for the Light Novel guide you posted. I aspire to become an author, but the process is always daunting for me. Your guide is inspiring and gives me hope that I shouldn’t worry too much about pursuing what I want to do.

    Aside from that, I hope things get better for you and your family.
