I realize I should have posted a note at least but sometimes in life you just reach a limit. And for me, that's what happened a couple of months ago.
I knew that if I were to log in here, I would probably have deleted my blog altogether so I stayed away because I know many of you still read and reread these stories and find enjoyment in them.
Thank you seriously for all the messages so many of you left asking about my whereabouts and updates. I am sorry it couldn't be sooner, but something very, very upsetting occurred.
I won't get into the details, but to sum it up, someone I thought was a friend of mine spread this blog to our mutual circle of friends and even to my work colleagues.
A real A.J. type of character for those who've read Secret Passion.
What hurt me--and deeply so--wasn't so much that she told someone about my blog (I'm proud of everything I've written and stand by it 100%) but I was really gutted that someone I considered a very close friend would maliciously act this way.
I am obviously no longer in contact with this person and have moved on, but everything that happened really impacted my love for writing.
I wish it hadn't, but you can't force yourself to write when your heart's just not in it.
Like I said, this was months ago and I'm in a much better place now writing-wise.
I've been writing a bit every couple of days.
I believe Secret Passion is my only incomplete story currently. I know readers of that must want the conclusion and I totally get that. I wish I could tell you when you'll get an update from me, but I honestly don't know quite yet. I have every intention of finishing it though and writing more in the future.
Thank you all for your continued support over the years.
You are the reason I logged in today after so long.
