Life Roll

 I am late with this update, but there is a reason.

I suffer from several mental issues, including anxiety, depression, and ADHD.  I take medication to help me deal with life in spite of my wacky brain chemistry.  Most of the time, they work.  Occasionally, they seem to take a vacation.

But they can't help me if I forget to take them.

I somehow skipped my meds on Wednesday.  I didn't realize it until Thursday, when I looked at my pillbox and saw Wednesday's meds glaring at me.  But it explained a lot.

The past two or three days taught me I really do need these pills, as much as I don't like admitting it.  I managed to keep up my writing streak by sheer determination.  I wound up taking Thursday morning off from everything, despite the fact I had a lot to do.  I am still behind in some stuff.

I'm starting to feel better.  I think.  I'm hoping tomorrow will find me more on an even keel.  We'll see.

But the news around here isn't all bad.  My short story "Black Deeds on a Black Friday" starts off a lovely anthology for the holidays called Crooked Little Christmas.  Here's a picture of the cover bvelow:

You can check it out on Amazon here.

Also, Laura's Look One Hundred, my latest column collection, is available as an ebook on Amazon (other markets to come):

That's it for now.  Hope November is good to you.
