Status Update - Love UnSeen & In/Exhale

Hey, all. I'm not dead yet.

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything recently. Honestly, the past few months have been really difficult for me. We finally got to go to Cleveland with high hopes only to have them dashed. The doc was annoyed we couldn't get there sooner (we live in Houston) and then was extra pissed because we prevented her starting her Thanksgiving vacation earlier. So she basically ignored everything we said, rushed through the visit, and refused to do anything, essentially. She was nasty and condescending. So we essentially wasted our time and money (it was expensive to fly out during Thanksgiving week last minute). I've had a LOT of bad doctor experiences, but that was the absolute worst, hands down.

Needless to say, I've had a hard time writing lately for a lot of reasons. Some are physical and some are mental. I've been dealing with pretty bad depression lately (and although that can help sometimes when writing, if it's too bad apathy sets in and it's difficult to care). I've tried to go back to Jackson but he's not speaking to me. And I've been doubting myself a lot.

I do have Feb 12 almost finished, and I don't think Feb 13 ("Valentine's Day" for Kai and Renee) will take too long to write. That should wind up Season 3 at long last (I'm really sorry it's taken soooo long), but after that I don't know. I also do want to continue Jackson's story, but I'm not sure when he'll start talking to me again.

Anyway, I figured I owed you guys an update, those of you who care, anyway, lol.

I hope you all have good holidays ahead.

  1. Sorry to hear about your unpleasant experiences with doctors, it's really upsetting. And I'm even more sorry about your health situation. Don't worry about not posting - live your life like it is most comfortable and convenient to yourself at the moment.
    After having been in a pretty bad place myself, I would encourage you and say that even if Jackson doesn't talk to you at the moment, he will at one point. According to my experiences, there is a way out of the deep hole although it may take awfully long to start feeling better.
    Sending to you all my love and best wishes.

  2. I was actually thinking of you today, wondering how you were and how your new doctor visit had been. I’m really sorry to hear about your experience there. You do what you’re able to, and don’t worry about posting! I definitely care about how you are doing :) -Meghan

  3. I get so angry with doctors sometimes, too, so I know what you are speaking about. Please don't give up trying, though. One day, you may find medical help that will truly listen. There are a few good ones out there.
    We all love what you write about and love your style of writing. Your characters are so so real to us and dear to us, as well. Take your time -- you will know when it's right -- and your stories will blossom and unfold once again.
    We believe in you and your talents, and wish you well with your health.

  4. Hey Chie, sorry it has been so rough for you but I also believe you should think about yourself first.
    I honestly don't really know your story but I am sure it's inside you and maybe just quiet at the moment. It will come back to you.
    I kind of understand because I am literally not feeling any of my stories right now either. I have a bunch of stuff started but every time I sit down and want to write it's not coming to me. I don't like this very much, I am sad about it but I also believe it is because too much stuff happened in my personal life this year.
    So just take your time and take care of yourself before anything else.
    Of course writing is a type of healing too but just give it time and you surely will get back into it. Best wishes!
