Oh there you are!

Dear Overcoming Her Obsession Blog,

I have really missed you. I remember when I used to look at you everyday; it seems like just yesterday you only one follower (me). It seems lately that I have neglected you, and I'm sorry. I don't mean to, it's just that there are so many other things going on in my life right now, and I'm having a hard time with this creative block; it doesn't seem to be going away. I know that these are all just excuses, and I'm sure other blogs have heard them a thousand times; but I'm sincere when I say that I will give it my best effort to visit you at least every few days, and update you at least once a week, hopefully with some interesting and worth-reading content.

Dear Readers,

I must extend my apology to you as well. I realize that a whole point of a blog (or one of the points) is to keep it updated with the current goings-on of my life. This is something I have failed in doing, and I promise to do my best to not let it happen again. You are all so important to me!

Love, me.
Whew I feel so much better now. Moving on.

The first week of school is over, and now I'm on to the second. I do have lots of time during the day when I can get work done (schoolwork or writing) so I'm hoping to get back on track soon. My goal used to be one chapter a week, but that hasn't happened. It's difficult when your brain suddenly quits sending signals to your fingers...the type of signals that allows me to write, anyway. It's amazing how life's little distractions can pull someone away from her beloved hobby. For awhile, my characters had left me, surely wandering in some dark silent room with no direction or guiding light.

Slowly but surely, they are listening to the sound of my voice...or perhaps I am listening to them...and they are making their way back to me...or the other way around. As they are fictional, I suppose the responsibility lies completely with me, not them. And here I am talking about them as if they were standing right behind me...That would be *so* cool if I could go have a coffee date with Corvin. He's so handsome :).

I am anxious and excited to get back to work, so weave the lives of my characters, especially Vyla. She has got some surprises coming, and they're not all good! *mwahaha* The fun part about writing is that I can be totally evil and get away with it....but sometimes I feel guilty.  But then I'm like, "Oh, wait! I'll just delete it!" But sometimes I don't even want to delete what I've written, so I save it for something else.

Well I will be seeing you again, soon Blog. I swear.
