Baby step...and maybe a leap

Yesterday sucked huh?

I crashed on the couch all day barely doing anything else.  I felt terrible, not just the bullshit in my head but my whole body ached and I was so damn exhausted it was a struggle to stay awake.  I forget how my mood does that sometimes.  How the lower I get the worse my entire body feels until all I want to do is cry and hide away from it all.  Then however long it takes me to come out of the fog, I'm like holy crap did I feel terrible.  It's crazy how your mind and mood can affect your whole body.

I'm glad I woke up today feeling better all the way around....even though I barely slept because of how I was feeling.

So anyway, while I was poor meing on the couch all day, I did something actually good for myself.  I know what the fuck right?  Well I entered a short story, The Stranger on two different websites.  Woohoo!  One is Good Reads and another I'll share once it's posted.  I have others that I've written lately but this one was my first real go at it and well I kinda like it the most because of that.  It's kind of my baby.  The first real story I have ever written and finished...well as much as you can in a short story anyway.  I know this doesn't really get me closer to publishing, but it gets my stuff out there more so I can get more comfy with people reading my work.  I still get uncomfortable knowing that short story is here where you guys can read it.  I avoid it at all costs otherwise I'll delete it.  I have to get over that so what better way to do that than post it (and eventually others) in as many places as I can.

Oh and for some reason it comes out all funky on Good Reads and I don't know why.  I've deleted it and reposted it twice, changed the indention's and layout both times and it still comes out looking terrible.  I don't know what I'm doing wrong...any tips?

That leap...well I won't give details because I don't want to jinx it but there's a good chance we could get EXCELLENT news awesome holy shitballs kinda news.  And if it's not today, it'll definitely be within the next few days.  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

That is a really pretty picture =] I mentally gave lots of ooh's and aah's. Sorry you felt so horrible the other day, but at least you are starting to feel better! Best of luck with your short story, and I'm excited to hear the good news!
