It's funny what will influence someone to do what they've already set out to do but lack enough motivation to finish. I lack motivation under normal circumstances. I don't know why. Right now though, I'm highly motivated.
My motivation: the internet bill is due.
So, I've been spending a lot of time writing. I haven't sent anything to my editors. I've only churned out chapter after chapter, in an effort to get as much done as possible because I'd like to post what I have before the internet goes down again.
The only reason I'm mentioning this is because of all the problems I've told you about and the one issue I haven't mentioned. That issue is my health. No, I'm not dying, but my asthma has been acting up a LOT. In fact, I've gone through two inhalers and ten full doses of Albuterol breathing treatments in the last month. For those who have asthma, you'll know just how much that is. Now I'm sitting here, typing this while fighting off another attack, knowing I don't have the money to get more meds. I'm drinking coffee. Something some people proclaim helps, but since I already drink coffee, tea, sodas, and so many other caffeine laced liquids, I seriously doubt it will be of any benefit.
So, now that my rant is out of the way, I'm letting everyone know that I don't know if and/or when I'll be posting anymore. I'll continue writing, but getting online is the issue. (I've reduced my status with the fire department to 'reserve' because of the problems I've had this summer --- severe pink eye in both eyes that blinded me for two weeks and left me unable to focus in the sun for a month after, and now my asthma). It's not that I'm not welcome up there, but going in only to get on the net is just rude.
I hope everyone's summer has been better than mine (I'm sure most have!) and I'll be back sooner or later to finish posting Sibling Magus and my planned second half to that story. Thank you for reading.
