Ebb & Flow

There's a cycle to all things: activity followed by rest; calm before storms; low tides, high tides; rampant progress followed by a screeching halt of productivity. Blah, blah, blah. You catch my drift.

To be honest, I've been putting off writing this quarterly update. Partly because I've been having health complications that severely limit my ability to function and string words together, and partly because I wrote a short story to completion and I was hoping to report back with news of its acceptance into an anthology. I got pretty high in the rounds of consideration for a publication that received an unexpected couple hundred submissions, but alas, it didn't make the cut.

Which is fine. I just need to find it a proper home. I was merely mistaken as to where that was.

The most important thing is moving forward, even when you're tempted to let the constant crash of complications and setbacks keep you down.
