Mea Culpa

I know I’ve disappeared for almost a month. Let me explain:

So remember this post? About my laptop problems? Well, that was just the start!

The issues with my laptop put me behind, especially as I entered another theme week—Spooky OQ, all dedicated to Halloween-inspired stories. I didn’t complete it and it’s the first button I’ve missed out on because I just didn’t have the time due to a convention.

The weekend before Halloween was the last Once Upon a Time convention in New Jersey. I stayed at the hotel for the weekend and spent time with my friends and the cast of the show. It was a busy weekend but a fun one, even if I didn’t get much writing done.

I left the convention late Sunday night and after working Monday, spent the evening packing again. Because on Tuesday, my family headed to Disney World. (More on that later). We stayed until November 4th and flew back home later that night.

So remember how my AC adaptor was failing? Well, it had been holding out and I figured I would order a new one after I got back from Disney. I did…but only because my AC adaptor refused to charge my laptop again. I had to wait almost a week for it, forcing me to use my dad’s computer. I tend to limit what I do on his computer so once again, I couldn’t update anything.

My AC adaptor has since come and my laptop appears to be working again. However, I’m still in a crunch time. Once again, I’m participating in the Outlaw Queen Advent Calendar. While I started my gift early, I decided a few days ago to chance an entire backstory—which caused me to scrap almost 9,000 words.

Yeah—9,000 words.

And did I mention that it’s due at the end of this week?


So I apologize for going so quiet. And I’m sorry if I’m quiet for a bit longer. I just need to get this story out. Hopefully after that, everything will go back to normal.

I am going to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving now and I regret that I probably won’t be able to do my annual list of things I am grateful for. But it’s usually the same—my family, my friends and of course, my readers. I am so grateful for all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
