Marching on

Wow, it’s been three months since I updated here. How did that happen? So much has happened, but I haven’t had the mental time or energy to put together words for this blog.

There’s a lot I want to write about here. Perhaps I’ll try to do it  in bite-sized pieces and update more often, and then there will be stuff on here again! How awesome will that be?

Some explanations are in order. Work has been crazy: we had a huge deadline and I was running around like a lunatic to make sure we met it. My work love me. My team are great. Sometimes, it’s just all so hard. We’ve learned some lessons and put some things in place to try to make sure it doesn’t happen again. No more deadline for a few months, I can breathe for now.

Our state here in Australia flooded in January. It was a nightmare for a couple of weeks; now it’s merely inconvenient at times. It kicked everything out of whack, but it’s all spinning back into place now. Slowly. And a bit dizzy.

My health has not been great. The chronic fatigue is kicking my ass, and the meds that my doctor has been prescribing aren’t helping. I have to go back to him and try something else. I am fed up of having this thing drag at me all the time.

Starwalker is hard work. The characters are in a tough place (being captured my space pirates will do that) and I’m reworking a lot of stuff that I wrote back in November to be more how I really want it to be. There are a lot of balls to keep in the air – and in my head – so it’s definitely a challenge.

Not that it’s not fun – it is and I still love it to bits! But lately, it has been a struggle to pull together the wherewithall to give it that shine that I want. I have the best readers, though, and they are very patient with me. I’ve had to miss several weeks so far this year, something that I despise doing, but I’ve had nothing but support from them. Thanks, to everyone out there.

It’s March and things are finally calming down for me. I’m starting to grab hold of my to-do list and shake it to see what falls loose. I’m getting there, slowly, and looking forward to some time off next month.

Hopefully, soon, I can do a more up-beat post that has less whining about my life in it. Who knows, right?
