The flu. I got the flu. Yay...

Think I'm on day 4 of running a fever, body aches, congestion, all that good stuff.

Hopefully your week has been better than mine.

Oh god, I hope you feel better!

@libris Thanks, I'm hoping this won't last much longer, but I'm going to be on day 6 now...

So, it's weird having nephews and nieces getting older. I was so used to seeing them as little kids, but the older two are almost people now. I mean, instead of just being kids, they're tiny adults in the making now. Freaking teenagers man. Of course, the oldest has a personality derived entirely from youtubers and memes, so he can get pretty obnoxious...

Time just kind of sneaks up on you, doesn't it? I always forget, every year. Well, I'm not sure if I just forget, or if I try to forget. But little kids remember this stuff. Yesterday I heard my niece asking my dad when they were going to go buy Uncle Daniel's birthday cake. That's when I realized, oh crap, I...

I feel like I'm just bashing my head against a wall here...

New year, still no work. I can throw out as many applications as I want, and I never hear anything back expect for the occasional rejection email.

I wasted so many years of my life getting my education, all it's gotten me is debt. And it feels like the same thing...

Haven't posted anything in over two weeks. Still alive, just haven't felt like doing anything more than lurking. Don't even really feel like writing this. I guess the depression has been getting to me again. As it is, I've been staring at the screen for a while, not wanting to post this.

I like lurking. :)

Thanks @bookcouple

How the hell am I supposed to get to sleep after that? Laying down, playing a game on my phone before going to sleep, and I feel something on my forehead. 99.999 fucking percent of the time, it's just my damn hair. But I always pinch it in my fingers and check, just to be sure. This time, I find myself holding a...

Been too lazy to blog. But then, I don't exactly live the most exciting of lives...

I'm slowly, emphasis on slowly, starting to get the new story started. I decided to try to flesh out my protagonist a bit before I start the story properly.

Anyway, just checking in, letting anyone who gives a crap know I'm still alive. It's been...

I'm still breathing!  Library world has been crazy since we've been getting RFID ready, I'm not a fan of the brand they went with, plus we need general software updates.  It's kind of been a pain in the arse, but other than that things are good.  I'm glad to see you blogging a bit!  I'm behind as well.  xx

@libris Glad to hear you're keeping busy. And definitely glad to see you're still coming around.

Man... it's been too long since I've played a game like Red Dead 2. Due to rpgs and stupid phone games, I kind of suck at this game. But, I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. Let's just hope I didn't curse myself by naming my horse Bojack. Still, my own lack luster performance aside, it's a...

So, through a series of lucky events, I managed to scrape together a bit of cash. And now... Red Dead Redemption 2 time! Woooo! First new game I've owned in years!

That's kind of sad to think about... But yay! New game!

Once again, I'm sitting here in the dark, unable to sleep. Nothing new, except for the past week or so, I've been tormented by the ghost of a story idea that just won't take shape. And I can't really get started on it until I know what it's trying to become.

It's like, you know when you have part...

At least write down what you know now so you don’t lose any important details and maybe it will start taking shape... good luck

@bookcouple I have been, I've got a jumbled mess of notes I try to jot down either on a little notebook or on my phone.

I've sent out more query letters than I can count at this point, all of which have, of course, been rejected. I've received some extremely pompous, self important responses from agents, and I've received many standard, form letter rejections that leave you wondering if they even read the query. The worst of which was sent just fifteen minutes after I sent the...

Don’t know any agents but it’s good that you’re staying hopeful, good luck

@bookcouple Thanks. And yeah, that last bit's a long shot, but you never know.
