Updates & Fuck Ups (Writing Them That Is)

As you can see, if you kindly click here, I've updated my Home Page. Added more information on my latest (and only) book out for consumption, and detailed that its to be a full-length novel. Long time readers will know that The Rather Depressing Tales of Patricia Lauren Bordeaux is a love work of mine, and although I've been on Chapter 1 for a very long time (how many years has it been?), I know once my contractual obligations are up to Permuted, I'm going to jump all over it like a Vampire jumping at a-

No, I lost the plot.

Anywho, I'm busy sitting here, staring at my screen, wondering what else I can do, that, for some reason, isn't writing. When that's the one thing I know I should be doing. Funny how that works at times, hm?

Break From Writing; Disney World

Today I woke up with another pounding headache and immediately knew today would be a "take a break from writing day." So I did. I spent all day on the phone with my lovely boyfriend (who is also a writer/aspiring game designer; how lucky am I?) and he surprises me tonight with some interesting news, but first I'll tell the story: I'm sitting there, watching the Travel Channel when it's ALL Disney Resort background stuff - you know behind the scenes stuff, how things work...etc. So I text my boyfriend the following and this is the conversation that ensued:

Of course, he would NOT shut up - he merely continued to say that he was also trying to get us tickets to Universal Studios. (One of my favorite places on Earth and his as well apparently.) And I damn near died.

No one has ever paid me so much loving affection and attention, and no one has ever planned such an elaborate vacation for me and them - this is quite the surprise.

I'm still in shock and just in awe.

And last night I had a dream about a beautiful white and gold ring with red diamonds (not rubies) - I was given it by my mother who told me it was mine and I had long forgotten about it.

What does it all mean?

I believe it portends to the fact that my life, which has been nothing but fairly terrible up until this year, has finally had a massive turn around.

I wonder what else is in store for my future.
