How is 2022 treating you all?
It’s been a whirlwind for me, so far. I’ve started in a new position at my ole nine to fiver and it is taxing the floppy pile of gray matter held in place by my skull. It’s a bit more difficult than I had initially imagined, but also, it’s good to tax the brain. Or so they tell me.
Fun stuff like my bank decided to change and the new bank doesn’t work for a small operation like myself. So, I’ve been looking for a replacement and changing more settings than I thought possible. Never mind all the changes to advertising I’m having to learn on the fly. With all that and my other responsibilities continue marching on. The shoveling of snow has eaten away at the smaller and smaller windows of free time available to me.
That and my mom just got out of surgery for cancer and… yeah. Plenty of thoughts occupies the doorway to my thoughts.
None of these things has helped me get any writing done lately. I stare at that blinking cursor and all I want to do is not stare into a screen. The words don’t want to come out… well except when I’m trying to sleep, shower, or anything else that isn’t me on the computer at the time.
But there is a bit of respite coming my way, sort of. I’ll be helping my mom out as she recovers, and I plan to sit down and write when I’m not doing that. I’m glad my new job made it possible for me to take the time off suddenly. That alone was a huge relief.
On the plus side, I have a few fun things planned for the future of the Matilda series that are away and running! I can’t wait to show you! So much fun! Fun! Fun!
Anyways, how’s 2022 treating you all? Drop a comment and say hi or what character is your favorite. Or what place in the Matilda Universe out there sticks out for you.
And I haven’t forgotten about the Nun with a Gun! Once the Waltzing Matilda is out for editing, she’ll be back for a rousing adventure too!
