As most of you know I've been moving, and it hasn't been an easy one. We were told by our landlord that he planned to renovate the house we rented and double the rent so we had to be out in 45 days. That was August 17th.
It was a tough move for us since we lived there for 5 and a half years and considered it our home. To top it off the rent in Denver metro has doubled in the last few months and we couldn't find anything that we could realistically afford. So we loaded everything we own into a storage unit and are bunking in with my mom until we lock down a new home.
In the mean time I was at the end of Lore and managed to get it to my beta-readers before I would go without a computer for I didn't know how long. As we moved into my mother's, my husband managed to get the computer up and running, (using her neighbor's internet signal) and it was just in time for me to get back two of my reports from the beta-readers.
One loved it, the other said it needed some work.
So, I'm back at it, even in the midst of chaos in my life. Plus I have written 10 pages of Tale, the next book in the series.
I guess the reason I am telling you all this is to say don't let life's stresses keep you from writing. My books are my babies and I need to be able to write. They are my release from the everyday stresses and even the catastrophic ones.
So don't stop writing, even if it's on a notebook. It's a healthy way to get away from all your problems - at least it is for me!
Have a great weekend all, Lisa
