In this unscripted, personal episode, I talk openly, honestly, and at length about the things going on with my life, including the deaths in October and January, my physical and mental health, and the financial strain of both. I then talked about the plans for the future, including my plans to get the show back on track and the efforts to get back to writing again. And finally, I thanked my listeners and supporters for continuing to stick with me and being patient with my long hiatus.

2017 Goal Check: April Progress





Only one goal done this month, with no real progress on the rest, but I’m not going to beat myself up over it too much because I am acknowledging it was a rough month.  I’m more hopeful on progress with Going Indie in March, and with some of the other goals as well.

S5, E98: A Return, I Hope



I’ve finally come to terms with Girl in the Forest not happening for April 28th, it just isn’t.  One of the characters is too similar to one of the people I lost in the last few years, making it too much of an emotional mine pool.  So I’ll aim for the September date instead.  Meanwhile, haven’t done much on the non-fiction either, but am getting some side goals done including the redo of this site!  Writing Projects Girl in the Forest – publish on April 28 – hiatus, just can’t deal with right now due to personal issues, so will redo […]
