Write me a story?

So real life has taken a turn for the worse... *glares at reality* After reading about some of things that other people have going on, I really feel guilty about complaining. I suppose everything is relative though.

The boyfriend and I were supposed to go on vacation this Thursday. We were heading to our cabin in Virgina for a week. Between graduate school and the two jobs, it's extremely hard for me to get away. Now because of his serious back problem and the need for him to find a new doctor, it's not going to happen. I don't blame him because he has to put his health first. I know I shouldn't whine about it, but I was looking forward to the break. I *needed* the break. But alas, I shall continue to march.

I've got stacks of cases sitting on my desk at work and lots of school work that I've let slide that needs attention so I suppose that's what I'll be doing over the holiday break. I'm not going to take any days off from work though. I've got a strange mental block when it comes to taking time off. If I'm not leaving town, I can't justify it in my mind. I've always been weird like that. Sure, I've got over two months of leave on the books, but god forbid I take a day off. I need to work on that. lol

So basically, will someone write me a story? A drabble? Anything?

I feel like writing, but I'm afraid I'll start killing off characters. I tend to do that when I need to vent. :)

If anyone is still reading this, thanks for listening.

It's hard when, as the author, you're not enjoying the story. It does feel like you're setting us up for something, but I don't think that's a bad thing. I don't think it feels rushed though. You were very detailed when you wrote Loophole and Sense. Perhaps it's because you've got more time constraints now?

You could always rewrite it and see if that makes you happy. Of course with your schedule, I don't you have the time. Sometimes starting a new project and leaving a problem story alone for awhile helps too. That's probably have I have a stack of stories that need to be finished... LOL

LOL We are all our own worst critics. Sometimes you just have to trust the fact that your readers think and *know* the story is good. I'd have quit writing long ago if I'd listened to myself.

I'll be sure to let you know if I think of something! I've got tons of ideas, but I'm always hesitant to share because I never know how an author will feel about input. Please feel free to do the same if you read anything I've written. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
