Wrapping Up the Year

This year has been a rollercoaster for me. Not an extreme one like in the past when I was married, but more than plenty of ups and downs. I’m okay with that, I think. Despite how hectic things have been since the start of November, I am more at peace with myself than I can recall. Almost as though I have found the eye of the storm that is my life. No clear idea of where I’m going or how I’m going to get there, but I feel that everything will be okay and work out just the same.

Homeschooling and Minecraft

NaNo got put on hold, basically. Instead I’ve been focused on some of the learning projects Little Bear and I have got going on in the Minecraft Bedrock edition (which is cross playable on several systems and doesn’t require a dedicated server for friends to play on your map provided you are logged on).

Lancing Emotional Boils

Okay, it’s been two days of NaNo already and I’ve written nothing. Like not a damn thing.

The short story I started and tried to write last month is still staring at me like an angry specter in the closet and I even went so far as to outline a new one to jump into and… nothing.

Goblin Chronicles 2021-10-21

I’ve been feeling spread pretty thin as of late. Homeschooling, writing for the blog, writing for Patreon, and trying to keep up with the Etsy shop has been overwhelming.

In some ways, I feel like I have lost sight of what I was trying to do here. I’m exhausted most of the time with little room in my head to relax.

I’ve thought about this before and I’m coming back to it. If I have to choose between writing fiction and tarot reading, which one would I pick? The answer is writing fiction.

With that in mind, I have decided to bring the Chaos Rally reading series to a close completely. I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to anyone and appreciate your understanding.

Problem Solved

Have you ever had something that sounded good in your head, but when you put it into practice it not only doesn’t work out but it made things worse?

That’s what I did with the blog when I thought creating almost 4k reusable blocks. It didn’t save me any time in the long run. Instead, it took so long for them to load up in the selection menu that it was causing the editor to not function properly. Content wasn’t being saved like it should have, and it wasn’t allowing me to update posts to fix it.

As much as I didn’t like changing my theme, I think I will keep the theme template I have for now. I may still tinker with it off and on until it feels right to me.

In any case, I hope I have everything fixed and all my posts properly running now. I apologize for the mess that’s been happening.
