Proud to be Part of Emz’s “My First Story” Series

I should be shot.

Months ago my friend (I hope she’ll still allow me to call her that), Emerian Rich (“Emz”), posted on Facebook asking for authors interested in being part of her “My First Story” series. If so, to Messenger her and she’d write back with the details.

I wasn’t exactly sure what it was about, but it had to do with Emz and everything she does is clever and fun so I reached out. She gave me the details and told me she’d send a questionnaire to fill out and to send it back ASAP.

Done and done and done.

Then she wrote back telling me the date it’d be posted. April 26, 2017.

Here’s where I went wrong and why I should be shot. I’m just now writing about it!

I’ve been neglecting my poor personal blog because I am a terrible multi-tasker. I’ve been working on improving HJ and trying to finally finish my horror novel, Shadyside.

Oh, and then there have been the trips. Traveling always throws me off. (Actually, I’ve done a bunch of traveling in 2017 so far, and April 26 is when I left for a trip. One that really took a toll on me emotionally when I returned home. I was so badly depressed for a week I did nothing except sit on the couch basically. And when I finally snapped out of it, I was just that much more behind. Add in company coming and another, longer, trip looming…well, suddenly I was stressed to the max and not getting much of anything really accomplished.)

Anyway, last week I got back from another trip, a two week one. (The longer, looming one.) But luckily this one, while busy, didn’t leave me depressed afterwards. Instead, it left me supercharged and ready to roll up my sleeves and get going on all I’ve been wanting to do. Including cleaning up and paying more attention to this site, my personal blog.

So I’m staring with sharing about My First Story, a series Emz put together and so graciously let me be a part of. Read it here:

Emz, I’m so very sorry I’m just now sharing it here. Thank you again!
