It’s been a rough time. Someone that’s been there for me since hubby passed away and was there for me in the middle of the night and was someone I could be wildly inappropriate with suddenly passed away.
Mom’s mental issues are getting worse and I’ve been focused on trying to get my aunt’s business off the ground. Her husband had a health scare and had surgery that then turned into a new problem that put him in the hospital. He’s not working and the business isn’t taking off the way we’d hoped. I know it takes time, but that’s not something we have on our side right now.
I’m looking for a job. I’ve been working on my editing and I’ve taken on some freelance work hoping to have a decent Christmas this year. That doesn’t look like it’s going to happen, (once again) no matter how hard I try.
I’ve gotten politically active in my town because they are idiots. There’s talk of me running for a public office. I don’t think that will work because even if my mouth doesn’t say it, my face will. It’s the unruly sort and has a low tolerance for stupidity and ignorance.
Today was pitmad on twitter, so I once again tried to attract an agent or a publisher. I don’t think it went well… but I tried. We had a vending event this past week. It was for a good cause, supporting the troops and combat veterans. Food donations, suicide prevention and other great organizations were there.
I’ll post more about that fiasco tomorrow.
I’m alive… but very discouraged.
