On Giving Up and Starting Back Again

Some readers may remember me from a few months ago. I use to write snippets of stories and share writerly wisdom. However over the past few months, indeed over the past year, my life has been turned upside down.

I had shared that I moved across the country in December 2012 but what I did not mention on this blog was the life-changing event that occurred after that move. You see, my SO was diagnosed with rare and fatal bone marrow disease. This required me to take months off from working to be his caregiver while waiting for a transplant and for a few months after.

I’m not using this as an excuse because there were several months during this time when I wrote almost every day. However, a few months ago in September 2013, we started to get our lives back in order. For me this was a very stressful time and my writing suffered greatly from it.

I’m slowly getting back into writing which is refreshing. I have new wisdom to share, particularly about how stress has negatively affected my writing and how I overcame that.

I won’t guarantee that I will post every day or even every week. I will try to post once a month though every post above that should be considered a bonus.


The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
