Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape.

I am in fact still here, and alive. (I guess.) It's been over a week, so I thought I'd post in case anyone is actually paying attention. 


House-sitting since last Friday, until next Sunday. I'm pretty much going the same way I did that one time last year. I just can't be left alone--simple as that. 


Yeah so basically an epic relapse of all of my worst hang-ups. 


In more positive news....
I have FINISHED BOOK 3. I haven't finished typing it yet, but I'm almost there. I have a feeling it might actually exceed 60,000 words, which is far higher than my original prediction. Idk whether I should feel proud of myself, or if I just talk too much. I've already made quite a lot of progress on Book 4... more than I had thought looking at it now. I'm at 100 hand-written pages, which is really going to suck when I get around to typing that book. 


I can't think of anything else to say, and I'm really just stalling instead of typing Book 3, so perhaps I should shut up and get to work.......


Hope y'all are being more responsible and sane than I am!

  2. Yes type book 3!! I'm waaaiiiitttiinngggg!!! *imitating Sonic the Hedgehog*
    I don't wanna live alone either. Alone time is good but hearing the deafening silence of an empty house just drives me crazy. I need the sound of other people in other rooms, even if we're not interacting, or I lose track of my brain somehow.
    And how goes the post-production of book 2? I can't pimp it out until it's ready! And it'll always be The Fairy Queen to me, you know :p

  3. It's great to hear you're still alive Mich, I've missed you posting so much but it's okay, I'm glad to hear you've finished your book as well, sorry to hear about your relapse though, that's not so good.

  4. Relapses are just ugh.
    Congrats on finishing book 3! 60,000 words... I always go over my word estimates too. I write far, far too much. I'm like an English teachers best friend haha. I can just write and write forever. Then I feel sorry for my tutor when she has to mark it. She hasn't complained yet though. :P

  5. I'm here and I'm paying attention. Glad to hear you've finished Book 3. My own book has taken a hiatus during the A-Z Challenge. I'll be able to get back to it next week. I always exceed my planned word estimates. I've never had the problem of generating verbiage. Getting my keyboard to "shut up" is the problem.

  6. I'm sorry it sucks so much when you're on your own. But count down til it's time to go home and keep plugging along. Feel free to text me incessantly.

    I can't wait to read more books. MOAR BOOKS!

  7. Why haven't I read your books yet? Oh right...grad school. :( BIG CONGRATS on Book 3 completion though!

    Sunday is not so far away. Sending hugs your way.

  9. I'm not as responsible. Your tenacity is an example, do not be shameful. Good going on getting stuff together enough to get the job done.

  10. Responsible? Sane? Me? ROFLMAO!

    You're kicking total ass! As a NaNoDweeb I'd say 60k is TOTALLY EPIC!

    Take care of yourself, ok? As the saying goes, shit happens. It doesn't last forever or have to sink your boat. Just remember that you are awesome and can bash the fuck out of anything that gets in your way with maximum efficiency and complete overloads of class.

  11. I'M PAYING ATTENTION. o.O

    No one expects you to magically recover from ed's and vitamins all at once. Sometimes you need to take a step back in order to take 2 steps forward, y'know?

    Also I'm still waiting for you to email me book 3.

    Love you!~!!

  12. i'm so happy you posted! i was going to write and ask if you were okay!

    Sorry about the relapse...i belive i have been on a relapse for about several years now....UGH!!!!!!!

    Love you!

  13. Ahoy! It's good to see you post.
    Personally, I see nothing wrong with shooting over 60 000 words ;). Just let it out!!
    I don't really know what to say about the relapsing, other than it's crappy and I wish you didn't have to go through it, but there is some truth behind all that stuff they say about each fall making you come back stronger. I know that's and useless to say, but I do believe it's true, even if it isn't always clear.
    You will get through this, and at least the creativity is here, so I guess that's something, right?
    I hope you're alright (and hopefully you got my late email reply - my internet is being an arse today).

    ps. that spekkuulooousussehoweverit'sspelled cake? AMAZING! I tried making a zebra cake once, and I think I need to work on my skillz... I bet you could make a bloomin' good one though.

  14. Wow! I've been away for a long time, and the news of your writing books is.. well.. news to me! That's awesome, and must take outrageous dedication. Surely something to be proud of. If you're books are as crazy and witty and funny as your blogs, then I for sure look forward to reading!

    Sorry to hear about the relapse, but don't beat yourself up too much. So long as you don't fall deeper into it, just look at it like a little speed bump in the road. Hope you're doing okay otherwise <3

  15. I noticed you were gone! I kept comming back here thinking I had missed your new post! I hope you succeed at fighting all your hangups! And congradulations for finishing the book! Don't forget if you hate typing you could use one of those things that you talk into and it types for you!

  16. What kind of books are you writing? That's amazing though, I wish I could achieve something so great.

  17. You're back! 'Bout damn time! ;P Glad to hear you've been productive during your blogging hiatus. Wish I could say the same thing about myself. Kids. I love 'em, but they wear me the hell out! I only have time to nap *or* write, and sleep always wins. Anyway...

    Hope your house-sitting is going better than last year. I read that post and started trembling. You've come so far since then, I'd hate to hear that your isolation caused a relapse. Hang in there. Call a friend (NOT dealer) if you're feeling lonely, and keep writing!

    xoxo

  18. Glad your still alive but sorry it isn't under grander and more amazing cercumstances. I may be weird but I love to type! I say this not because you care but because maybe, if the trust is there, you could get someone like me who loves typing to type out you books. I know there are people you can hire but people who love doing it will do it for free.

  19. As of next Sunday: You make it out alive, you start picking up the pieces. K? I didn't post about seeing a brown thrasher up close & personal but I got to think "Mich would understand why it's exciting..."

    No more housesitting for a while after this, k? Maybe never.

  20. I hope the rest of this week goes quickly so you get out of there. House sitting is a total drag!

    Well done on finishing BOOK 3! You're a little dynamo, M.! The boys and I had our morning coffee in the Michi-mugs, it was awesome! We love them so much!

    Hang in there, babe. Big love. :) ♥♥♥

  22. The day I'm more sane than someone else is the day I know I've matured, and it's time to end it all. Congratulations on finishing the book and writing so much. I think you can be proud and not think you're just talking to much.
