Surgery...Not looking forward to it!

Yes, I'm having my gall bladder out. Worried? A little, but mostly frustrated because I HATE having any kind of procedure.

Back in 1996, I had my hysterectomy. Nice little bikini cut, surgery went fine then the two young nurses proceeded to let me hemorrhage all day long. My doctor almost had a stroke when he arrived to check on me that night and realized what had happened. They were talking blood transfusions and all that good junk. Not fun. I'd never, ever been so weak in my entire life. So, now, I'm a little leary of any kind of surgery.

I know this type of stuff doesn't happen all the time but it really impacted me. Put up a mental block that I really have a hard time overcoming. Yes, I will have the surgery, but I'm not looking forward to it. Not at all!

This has also halted all writing for me. Can't concentrate to write or (LOL!) sleep. Try not to think about it but human nature sort of over-rides my good intentions and I end up right back worrying.

Everyone, please keep me in your thoughts Wednesday morning! I'm going to need it with my nerves!

Release dates for two stories!!

Yes, two of my works:

Heart's Reunion (Here)



will be released on NOVEMBER 4, 2009

and

Love's True Enchantment (Here)



will be out on NOVEMBER 13, 2009.

Can I say ecstatic? I truly am!

But it's strange. My happiness is tempered by a calmness. There are a couple of projects I'm working on that have taken a lot of my time. During late Spring and most of the Summer, I don't blog much. Why? Dunno. It's not that I don't have anything to say, I'm just silent.

Make sense?

Sometimes the quiet helps me find my place. I write and think, then write some more. There are days I rearrange the paragraphs, the phrases, and even the entire story.

I find it's helpful to step back and align the focus of my writing so I can see the best picture.

Well...just had to shout out and let everyone know I'm still around, just being quiet!
