Writer's Block, and The Life It Leads.

So Writer's block is a real thing. For me it's something I've been struggling with for awhile now. Ever since my mom passed back in March. It's understandable the loss of a parent is a big thing. It's even bigger when you use to seeing that parent everyday and then you can't see them anymore.

I was my mom's full time care provider, outside of writing. It was the only thing I did for work. It paid pretty well too. I was making almost $15 an hour. However the money wasn't why I was doing it. I was taking care of my mom because it was the right thing to do, and because it needed to be done.

My mother and I had a good relationship. It had it's issues, but at the end of the day we said I Love You to each other and meant it. I made sure to almost always say I love you to her when I would leave because shit happens and you never know what the next day will bring. That was never more true when I went to her place the day after her birthday.

This has been a very hard holiday season for myself and for my family. That's why I've decided to take the month of december off from writing and just focus on myself and my family. I am going to delay the rest of the Stoneman mini series I've been doing for The Saturday Shorts installments, and I'm not going to be working on anything else for the month. I'll be posting on Twitter and Facebook, I do have a sale coming up for The Hunter. However right now I just can't focus enough to write anything thing.

I hope you all have an awesome Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Yule. I hope the rest of your holiday season goes awesome.

Also If you've been thinking about donating to anything please consider donating to the GoFundMe Account I have set up to raise money so my wife and I can take my mom's ashes to Parsons Kansas to have her buried next to her late husband. Just click THIS LINK. Any amount will help.
