Where did I go?
« on: October 29, 2019, 03:18:21 PM »
NOWHERE! But... I wasn't here. Does that make sense? No, of course it doesn't. Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Humperdink is set to marry Buttercup in a little less than half an---

Sorry, wrong script.

Hello fellow WSers. I disappeared for about a year because depression, writing, not writing, and lots of life events got in the way of my forum time. But I'm back! (More or less.) I finally finished books 4 and 5 in my Victoria Marmot series, and for the first time in months I feel like I have the bandwidth for this lovely place again. I'm sure most of you probably had no idea I was gone, but for the three people who actually enjoyed my antics when I was here... HELLO! My name is IŮigo Montoya you killed my---. Nope, sorry.

Ahem. I mean, hello! I'm back. It's good to see you all.

Good to see you back!

I think writers might be predisposed to depression (or maybe it's the other way around?)  Either way, here's to productivity and success.

Crazy owl lady. I also occasionally write Fantasy books, but the owl is really all anyone cares about.

Could well be. We are exceptionally good at living in our own heads, so... yeah. Meanwhile, I discovered that I had been managing my depression for years via exercise, and didn't know it, because I'd never really stopped exercising for long periods of time until this past winter, so I'd never had enough symptoms to be diagnosable. And then, whoo boy, did I find out what exercise was doing for me when I stopped last winter. Anyway, I'm back to running a few days a week and that (plus periodic counseling visits) seems to keep things under control.

Welcome back - yes, you can always rely on life events happening when you least expect them.

Certainly! And life events is so vague that they must happen near constantly, but in this case they were of the "big sad thing" variety.

Thank you! I have it under control for the moment. I am fortunate that for now it is manageable with exercise and counseling.
