The Life Etudes continues on the same theme, only of course I've added diabetes to my life story. Adding diabetes was (and is) rough. The Life Etudes is in five parts. Part 1 is about changing my perspective so I can adapt to diabetes. Part 2 is about finding meaning in my life. Part 3 is about endurance. Part 4 is about transcendence. Part 5 is about leaving a legacy.
Draft one is finished. I don't have to stare at a blank screen hoping my muse is in the mood to play with me. My muse is a one inch high fairy. She looks exactly like me, only Muse is about half as nice. Muse is capricious little thing. When I am in the mood to write, she disappears. I'm left starting at a screen for five hours with no words in my head. Ten minutes after I fall asleep, then she wakes me up and chatters her little fairy head off. I think this amuses her. It drives me batty.
I am so glad to have finished draft one. I'll keep you posted on when it will be available for sale. For now, celebrate with me. I made it past the crazy phase. Whew!
