Well, it sure has been awhile. Thank you for everyone who has stuck with me. This summer was the worst one in my life.
My mother died after spending 55 days in the hospital. Through a chain of circumstances, she died of blood poisoning, on August 14th.
My father could not deal with losing her and attempted suicide on Labor Day. I found him right after he fell unconscious (I have been living with my parents for about a year while dealing with a divorce). I got him to a hospital where he was saved. For a minute. He refused to eat or drink and came home on hospice. he died in our home with both my brother and I present on September 17th.
Their funerals were exactly a month apart. August 24 and September 24.
Now, NaNoWriMo is here and I am finally going to sit down and write. This will be the first time I have done this since my father’s funeral, and very little was done over the summer to begin with as I watched my mother get sick, get better, have a set back, then get better and finally fail.
I will be posting daily updates on word count as I begin to write WHITE DARKNESS, a standalone horror novel based, in part, on my time working at Toys R Us.
Fort those of you who are interested, my mother’s and father’s obituaries are link to the post.
