Novel: It's been over 1,000 years
Life: Married life is awesome; work is stressing me the fuck out
*checks most recent journal... December 2014*
Alright folks, friends, loyal readers... It's been a long time, and it may seem as if my account is deader than a doornail. But let's put down a brief timeline:
Jan: Got home from leave, motivated in finishing my book, but then met my spouse. Spent less time goofing off, more time actually enjoying life
Feb: Car wreck at the beginning, marriage at the end (also found at she was pregnant)
Mar: Moved into a new apartment with my wife
April: Met the in-laws and miscarriage
May: Got back to Texas, moved clinics, told they're trying to give me the boot
June: Continued to be told I'm getting the boot; forced to take mandatory classes, wife is assaulted and money is stolen
So let me get into a more in depth description here. While I was home for Christmas, I got back into working on my novel, power working, pounding on the keyboard, motivated. I also started talking to my wife, Ariel. Got back to Texas, and continued to talk with her, but I was also playing games, working, drinking, ect. Then we went out, and my entire world changed. I stopped playing as many games, stopped drinking a lot, and my work performance increased. In February I got side swiped, and now my civic is missing a mirror (that still needs replaced lmfao), and then on 26 Feb... Ariel and I said our vows, and I've never been happier. Not to mention, Ariel is in the hospital the week of Valentines Day, and she got the news there that she was pregnant. March was kind of boring, stressed from work not letting me to do things for my wife, forced out of the dorms, and had to find an apartment (it sucks baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad). Not only that but I had to clean up after my nasty roommate and they didn't give me housing money until mid April. In April Ariel and I took a vacation up to WV to visit her parents (who absolutely adore me btw). While there though... Ariel and her dad went through a bad rollover accident and we lost our baby. We get home, and work moved me from the clinic I hate to the one that I was working before, and then I'm also told that they want to boot me out of the military due to "poor performance and constantly being late". To top it off, I'm still dealing with depression of losing our Bailey Kay....... We get into June; our apartment is trying to evict us, our neighbor stabs us in the back, one of our friends assaults Ariel for not giving the friend her prescribed medications. After knocking her unconscious, I moved her into the car and while doing so, the friend steals money and medicine before I got into the car to get her to the ER. Then we're still dealing with work still telling me/trying to get me kicked out.
In short, I've had major life changes happen in six months and I haven't been able to focus on anything but all of those. Also, my laptop updated, so I lost all my work on my most recent chapter (all the files are long long gone; but the good news is I saved them on a flash drive and my badass gaming computer). I am working on getting my life back together after everything falling apart. I think my wife and I need a nice vacation and maybe go see JMToledo
, or maybe they can come see us here. It doesn't matter, but I need it, a break from the world that's crumbling away around me. Any who, working on the book should help. Also, Jose should be prepared because he's going to be a main character in two of my future books (and possibly a villain in one as well
) So watch out of those.
Keep your pens sharp!
Fun Edit: I was rereading some of my previous chapters. Holy smokes kids, bouncing back and forth; present and past tense. Bad adjectives and over bad writing. Jesus, who wrote those? A damn 10 year old? When I finish the ALPHA write; I'm going to have a lot of clean up to do for the BETA write.
