The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

So you're all wondering why haven't I updated? Here we go...I'll try to explain. The last week of August my mother went into the hospital for nine days. She was there until the Wed., after labor day weekend. Yes she spent the holiday weekend in there.

Once she was released she stayed with us on and off for two weeks. It has been crazy busy. Finally, last week she went home. Talk about everyone being happier. Not that it was bad when she stayed here, because it wasn't, people just prefer their own homes and beds.

In other news--writing related,

I had a critique done of a short story I wrote and the good news is in. They liked it, even said it had chilling possibilities. ;) It originated from a nightmare that my mind wandered through. I woke up nearly in tears, wanting to be sick. How crazy is that? As a catharsis I wrote it out and gave life to it. A bit more polish, and I think I'll have another submission....

ETA - In other writing news, I am still hard at work on an under wraps project. I hope to have it out of the way by Nano. Here is to hoping...I don't yet have an idea for Nano, because this current wip is stealing all my attention.

ETA - Also as for my last entry in case anyone was interested, the letter idea worked. My daughter was thrilled that Care Be's mom was so determined to check her out. She came to me the next morning, with Care Be, her mom and the letter. I let out a giant sigh of relief. I am happy to report that everything ended nicely, and disaster was averted.

I am a writer, lover, parent, friend...I don't know I find this awkward.
