I’m Not Good at Experiments

I think I’ll just stop promising things to you guys, because it’s been hard to come through on any of them lately. Last month was annoying — mostly because I was playing catch up all month with class work and dealing with the allergy rash I’ve had since October. It was super bad last month, and incredibly distracting.

The good news is that I know what I’m allergic to. The bad news is that it’s formaldehyde and fragrance mix, two things that are basically in everything, so I have to replace almost every product I own. Super fun stuff.

Another obstacle has just been the quality of my writing. I feel like I’ve lost the ability to write for these characters — I wrote dialogue, and it’s not in those character’s voice, and it’s been really discouraging. I’ve been plugging away at it, and yesterday I wrote a Jason/Michael scene for Damaged that felt a lot closer to what I’m used to. I don’t know if I’ve turned a corner, I’m hoping.

Still here, still trying.


  • As someone who is allergic to frangraces, I sympathize.
    As one of your dedicated readers, I’ll continue to follow you because I think you’re an amazing writer and I have no problem re reading every story, taking a break and then doing it all over agin..
    Have faith-

  • Don’t stress about getting stuff posted. You take care of yourself. We’re not going anywhere. 🙂

  • Glad you have some answers. Sorry it’s such a pain. Betting you’re being too hard on yourself for your writing. Happy to lend you an objective ear if ever you want another editor.
