Hello, everyone. Sorry to have disappeared for a few days. I have been dealing with some health issues that we haven’t quite figured out what is going on yet. I have been so tired and feeling so fatigued that all I do is want to sleep. I have no energy for anything and it frustrates me because I don’t know what is causing it. It has been going on for a couple weeks now but I will be seeing my therapist on Wednesday to see if she might have any ideas.

I actually sat here yesterday forcing myself to stay up and created my book writing monthly goal sheet. With everything from writing the chapters to three rounds of editing to sending it off to a professional editor, I will be writing my current list of books well into February two- thousand and nineteen. Not considering any other books I come up with between now and then, lol. I have a few ideas for some more but I have jotted them down just until I get my already extensive list of books down some. I plan to stay busy and creative.

As far as how my day is going, it is manageable. Yesterday my nephew’s girlfriend celebrated one of her son’s birthdays with a party to which I pretty much stayed in my room. I have been feeling somewhat isolated the last week or so and don’t care to be bothered with anyone else. I put on that happy face for everyone in the house but my husband and sister-in-law know that I am not being real and hiding what is going on on the inside. I am a person who holds everything in until I find a safe way to release it. I call it throwing up to my therapist, lol.

I know that I am getting older because of the way my body aches and hurts but I try to stay young at heart. Walking is difficult at times because my feet haven’t been cooperating with me lately, or hurting so much that I can’t walk. My husband tries to get me up and walking throughout the day but it hurts so bad. I remember back in two- thousand and ten when I walked from Orlando, Florida to the border of Texas for a charity walk for the homeless and here I can barely walk about thirty feet without hurting or stopping to rest.

I need to find a way to motivate myself and to keep myself up during the day but cannot figure out what to do. I have no problem sitting up at night and I have stayed up until three or four o’clock in the morning without even being tired. Those are days when I would get up in the morning and stay up all day too. I don’t know but I will be seeing my primary care physician on the twenty- sixth of this month if it is not mental health being the culprit.

Well, I will stop here so that I can make use of my up time and finish the last chapter of my book “The Battle for Joshua”. I will begin the first round of editing tomorrow and look forward to sending it off to the editor. So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else have an awesome Sunday. Take care.

Good morning friends and family. It is a beautiful day here in Dalton, Georgia after a nice thunderstorm last night. It smells so fresh and clean outside. My apologies for missing in action the last couple of days. It has been so hectic here with doctor appointments and then yesterday I tripped on some steps and strained my back a little but enough to make it hard to walk or sit. We have been doing some spring cleaning around here and getting donations together for the flea market this next weekend for my nonprofit that assists the homeless and needy.

I have gotten everything together and in place so that June first I will be back on schedule and everyone knows that I will NOT deviate from it unless it is for important things like doctor appointments or grocery shopping. My writing is important and also a coping mechanism for my mental health issues like anxiety. I have had a few good reviews on my short stories and I want to say thank you to them for the comments and that I appreciate you all very much.

It is that time again to end this so that I may get my day started and this coffee tastes so good right now and that I need to run to Walmart to get some things. I wish everyone an awesome Sunday and be blessed.

Good morning to all my friends old and new, and to my family out there. Woke up this morning with an incontinence issue but I am better now, alive and awake, and ready to get writing. I have had a tall cup of coffee, two diet Pepsi’s, and now I’m on to a bottle of water. My diabetes can sometimes make me very thirsty or dehydrated no matter how controlled it is. So, I am here getting set up at my desk to start my writing again today. I have somewhere between twelve and twenty works in progress, I am almost ready to publish the first book and almost done with research for the second book before starting to write it. I have outlines done for the remaining works in progress and excited to begin writing each one.

My husband is still asleep with the dogs, the birds and squirrels are being noisy this morning, and I am still trying to wake up. 🙂 The only thing I can say right now is that I am a “Phenomenal Women”. I somehow manage to multitask several things at one time, work on writing my books, and pay the bills when the money comes in. I have a goal to be debt free this year with the possibility of buying a house the beginning of next year. This is going to be a good year for me no matter what tries to stop us. I also have a goal of having at least ten of the twenty books written and published this year as well. It is funny because not only do I have a list and outline for twenty books, I have begun a partial list of new books to write.

Writing has become a passion for me and it is not so much about the money as it is to help people and to entertain. I have already made provisions that half of all royalties will go to Hope Station USA, Inc to assist the homeless in becoming self-sufficient. That is the second passion in my life, to give back to those who have helped me over the years while I was homeless. Well, enough of that, it is time to get started on today’s writing. I wish everyone a blessed and prosperous day. Just remember that even the smallest of good things is a reason to celebrate. Pay it forward whenever you can and it will always come back to you tenfold. Have a great day everyone! Writers get those creative juices flowing it is a new day.
