Do you know what’s really hard?

Well, do you know what’s really hard? What’s hard is managing two kids, a house, a husband, a full-time job and a PhD program.

What’s even harder has been managing the autism diagnosis for my oldest kiddo.

I needed time to really process it – AUTISM. It even looks scary on the page, and it is scary. It’s scary because so much about autism is not known. The saying goes if you’ve met one person with autism you’ve met one person with autism. Everyone with autism is different, has different strengths, weaknesses, and abilities. There is just so much we don’t know yet.

The baby is 6 months old. He’s fat. He cries. He doesn’t sleep. He likes to party. So, the baby is well for those of you curious.

Now, on to writing. Well, it hasn’t moved much. I do promise to wrap this book up though however because I have another idea, well, ideas. For those of you who don’t know I was a journalist for years and so I’m a journalist by training. I fell into horror, supernatural and mystery writing almost as an accident, but really as a form of therapy to help me through some post-traumatic┬ástress I was dealing with from writing about crime in Chicago.

Well, guess what? I want back in. I want to write about those crime scenes, those unsolved murders, those criminals, and those victims. I have a lot of ideas that are swirling so I’ll write more about that as it comes to me.

I haven’t had much time to write during the holidays, and so I’m going to log off now and focus on getting some writing done. I’ll be posting my plan for getting on a writing schedule and having accountability for the New Year!

More soon friends!
