Erm. Sorry. My boyfriend has been turning me into a country girl.
I didn’t realize it had been so long since I’ve been here. It makes sense, though. I sort of went through a super intense manic phase right after my last post, which ultimately led to my divorce. In April I moved out and back to Utah, away from my kids, which kills me pretty much on a daily basis. In July I met my boyfriend. In August the divorce was finalized.
It’s been a rough year.
Especially because, with my mental illnesses, I can’t seem to financially support myself.
I have been working on Draft 8 of Victim of Greed. And somehow I’m going to pull together the money to go to the Superstars Writing Conference in February of next year. Probably with student loans. Oh yeah! I’m going back to school. I’m a poly-sci major at Utah Valley University.
I recently got a reminder of just how important it is to have a social media following if you want to get traditionally published, so I’ll be working even harder at this. I might just do a bunch of TikTok videos on my business page and tag my author account? Does that count?
I’m trying really hard to get my business afloat. Sometime this winter I’m going to host a mental health fair in Orem, Utah. Should be pretty great.
I don’t know what I’m doing with my life. I’m trying everything I can think of to keep myself afloat and I still feel like I’m sinking.
So yeah. I don’t know. I don’t know what to do.
Somehow things will work out, I think. I’m praying like crazy that they will, anyway.
