Everything in balance

I am a child of balance. Everything happens for a reason. Maybe not right away, but you will always get yours.

I was on a real up swing. I won Shield of Fire by Boone Brux. I have two short stories that were picked up for their anthologies. I was doing great.

Then I had a bladder infection jump into my kidney, and I wanted to die. It was quite possibly some of the worst pain I've ever had. It and my grease burn are tied.

Although, the grease burn didn't require antibiotics and anti-nausea medication. I couldn't keep anything down for a day, and lost nine pounds. My sister-in-law teases that violent infections aren't the best weight loss decision in the world.

Thankfully I'm well enough to be able to laugh about it. Yes, I'm a little miserable. Yes, I'm tired as all bloody hell. But I'm alive, with nothing majorly wrong with me, and I sold two short stories.

TWO SHORT STORIES! That's just so bloody awesome.

More details on them as they get closer to publication date.

    1. It is fun to be selected. It's just so much hard work and time intensive.

      And the road to recovery is annoying. I'm doing better, but I'm too impatient. I want to be better now.
