After some difficult times last month we’ve started to accept that it’s possible James may never be well again. I hate to say that, because all either of us wanted was for him to be better, but there are some things we have no choice about and with this there are limited options unfortunately. So the plan is to start looking into how we manage the problem, to make him more comfortable, as well as sort out his eating habits, which were affected by spending six months on antibiotics and about three, maybe more, on diclofenac. We just have to take things one step at a time right now.
I have also started to accept that it’s possible, although I have no formal diagnosis and I’m really not sure that I want one, that I have Asperger’s Syndrome. James already agrees, Mum is looking at some links I sent her to see what she thinks, and the more I read (my focus is on women with Asperger’s) the more I believe that I do have Asperger’s. This may be something I talk about more in the future. Right now I just want to do the research before making a final decision, as well as talk to Mum, because she’s known me since I was born (obviously).
Last month I entirely failed to get my website into any sort of order, so that’s something I will be doing in January and have actually already made a start, with the plan being to make the stories I write much easier to navigate. I want to make it obvious which ones are finished and which aren’t, so anyone who is interested in funding me to write more knows what their money is likely to go towards. What I’m going to do is put the first part of every story on the landing page (or pages, depending on which collection it is) and then have each part lead to the next one, with information at the end of the last part which will say if the story is complete, which story or stories follow on directly from it, and how, if the story is incomplete, to get more. I also need to get all of my pages updated to show my price increase, as 1000 words will now cost £3.00 instead of £1.50 and this, depending on how fast I’m writing, may see my hourly rate rise to as much as £6.00, because on good days I can manage to write 2000 words in an hour.
Check out my schedule to see what I’m planning on doing this year. It will be updated in the next couple of days to show prompt sessions, which I’m going to experiment with a little more this year; raffles, as I am planning on continuing them (and I will be posting the winners for the extended November raffle this month after totally failing last month); and anything else I might come up with. I still love experimenting, so I’m hoping that this year I’ll be able to come up with something interesting and new that everyone enjoys.
