Life Update

Hello all!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, my posts have been dwindling bit-by-bit, week-by-week. While I usually would chalk it up to laziness, I do have a few things to share with you all that might reveal a few things. Onward to the list.

  • The Snowpocalypse of Alabama
    If you’ve read my about page, then you’d know I’m from Alabama. The South was hit by a snow storm that no one expected to be more than a light dusting. And if you’ve ever been to the South, we don’t do snow. However, we underestimated this one and were ill prepared to handle it. 150 accidents in my city, me being stranded on campus for hours, then being stuck in traffic for five hours, after abandoning my car, then finally getting home only to be snowed in later. I’ve been a little “blah” where writing and posting is concerned.
  • School, work, school, work, school
    Need these be explained?
  • Anxiety
    This has been an awful month, in general. Not to say there weren’t good parts, but there has been far more wrong than right. I have major anxiety problems, and this month has been the worst for them. Anxiety leads to depression, and depression leads to a lack in motivation. It’s not an excuse, but I’m hoping it’ll at least clarify a few things.


That’s really all I have for you all today, and I’m sorry there hasn’t been more writerly nonsense to talk about. Hopefully, now that the snowpocalypse has ended, life can start back and I’ll get back to my regular routine. In the meantime, please check out my interview at Crack the Spine and be prepared for a guest post from a good friend of mine on Monday.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I know only too well that anxiety kills creativity. Hope things get better for you soon.

    1. Thank you very much. All in time.

  2. The cheer-up starts right now. One two, one two, one two. Get the lead out. Kick it in gear. Let’s go, Alabama. Go Tide.

    1. Haha, the cheer-up is working. Roooooooooooooooll tiiiiiide rooooooll. 🙂
      Thank you, my friend. Definitely put a smile on my face.

  3. This winter is trying for us all I think. Over here in my part of the UK we’ve had no snow but the weather is wet, windy and miserable so all I want to do is hibernate. Here’s to a productive Spring season… : )
