And just like that, 2021 draws to a close. It seems like the whole year lasted a century and yet went by in a flash. I am afraid even to think what 2022 will be like, rn, after how 2021 shaped out to be. I haven't made any resolutions. Maybe I'll add a poem to… Continue reading The End of Another Year
I have been absent a bit, but it has been a ride lately. We went to my sister's place on August 24th and returned on 25th. On 28th morning, she called us to inform that her youngest has been diagnosed with Covid. He's turning seven this October, and needless to say, we are all still… Continue reading New Developments
March is here, and so is summer. I keep plugging away at words, hoping that I might actually get somewhere with all this. I haven't finished Wizard's Debt yet, but hopefully I'll get to do it this month. March 4th was my son's birthday. He would have turned 18 if he had lived. It is… Continue reading March is here
Why are we still in February? lol. I feel like time isn't passing at all. Flame of a Dragon's Oath and Soul of Magic are with betas and it looks as if Soul of Magic might need a full rewrite. Ah well, time enough for that in the future, I guess. Memories of Forgotten Waves… Continue reading Still in February?
This week has been different. I started anti depressants, and already I can feel the change. There is a bit of sleepiness, vagueness, inability to focus, and some slight physical issues as well, but for the first time in so long, life doesn't seem like an endless well of despair. I posted the final chapter… Continue reading Something new?
2021 doesn't seem all that different from 2020. In fact it might even be worse, I think. Odd numbered years had never been good for me. I've lost most of the people I loved in such years. My dad in 2007, my brother in law in 2009, my son in 2019, so I'm naturally wary… Continue reading Another Random Ramble
It is one year today since I lost my son, and I've been in a funk all week, crying at work, snapping at people, moping around and writing till my hands hurt. Nothing really helps. Nothing can fill the emptiness left behind by him. I took his name as my pen name, and seeing his… Continue reading Depressed pile of goo
Work has been hectic for the past couple of weeks, and as I tend to do whenever work threatens to turn me into a zombie, I start watching some show that once I enjoyed and which I know will recharge me somewhat. This time it is Teen Wolf that I decided to rewatch. It's a… Continue reading A trip down the memory lane
