No, not me. You. Hello? Anybody…?
Obviously, I’ve been away. I didn’t actually go anywhere (except to the parents’ house for Christmas), but I needed some time away from… well… everything. Nothing drastic has happened, nobody is dead or in the hospital.
I took some vacation time away from Job#1 and used a lot of that time to put in more hours on Job#2, so that I could afford to have electricity, gas and running water this month. Oh yeah, did I mention the pay cut that kicks in this month? Umm… yeah there is one. Between two jobs, job hunting (for a better Job#1) and the various other things I do on the internet to try and earn a few more cents a month, I’m still behind on just about every bill I’ve got. It’s certainly not as bad as it could be or has been, but it isn’t exactly encouraging either. For the past few weeks, anything that didn’t involve at least the possibility of earning money was on hold. Still is, in fact.
So obviously I haven’t been doing any writing. I haven’t checked this site since my vacation started, and if Werewolf hadn’t emailed me I probably wouldn’t be here now. I’m just letting you know that I’m still around and that I hope to pick up writing again soon. But when writing comes after two jobs, a wife, and a serious commitment to finding another source of income, it doesn’t look good. Even on weekends it doesn’t look good.
So anyway, that’s where things are.
