Stressed out, but relaxed.

All day yesterday I had this underlying feeling of being extremely stressed for no apparent reason. My part time job is on hold until I can get a replacement devise to continue working. When I woke, I felt an over all sadness, frustration and anxiety. I should be relieved that I had a day off from work.

Middle of Summer

Haven't posted anything for awhile. I've been having totally unexpected health issues that have thrown me for a loop. But after seeing a specialist last week, I am heartened that he doesn't think it's as serious as was first reported.

Wanting and Earning... 

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I want to be back on the bestsellers list (had a book on there for a weekend back in 2006) but for whatever reason, sales have been good, but not good enough.

New Beginnings

I've been kind of worried lately because i had a tumor growing on my hand that was making my fingers and arm numb. the hand that i write and draw with. twenty four hours after having it removed, i have feeling again and even with the bandage i can use a pencil and such. since i'm supposed to rest, i am pretty sure this is a perfect time to surround myself with creative things and completely annihilate that creative block i have had.
