Okay, so, you might notice a few changes to the website.
This is due to simply not having money to maintain it. To keep the shop, and ecommerce elements, and all such fancy dangles, was going to cost up to $600 and...hahahha...yeah, nah.
I can't even afford to feed myself, and my cats, so - no -
But hey - sometimes - change is a good thing. ^_^ You don't know until it all unfolds and the story is told.
Thus, I had a re-revelation of the situation.
In difficult times - like financial stress - I think it's important to feel like you're at least 'doing something' and trying to be productive. Otherwise it's really easy to get overwhelmed, well, frankly, you get overwhelmed anyway.
But at least there is something to counterbalance the cloudy gloom.
So I thought that losing the website entirely was a bad idea. I can't afford to publish anymore novels, or attend any conventions, but at least a website gives me a place to upload and share my work while I claw my way through whatever life keeps throwing at me.
Thus, I downgraded the website plan to something much more simple.
Something that I can just use to share my thoughts and my writings, because, that's really all I want to do. At the core of it all, I just want to write, and share the stories I write - if people read them, that's great - if not - that's fine too.
Thus, I'll be uploading some of my novels over the coming months.
And I've also almost finished a new one, which I have really - really enjoyed writing and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you all. It'll be in its rough, unedited form, but, I hope you all know me well enough now to get past my hilarious dyslexia and inability to understand any grammar.
I know this period that I'm going through won't be forever. It's hard being in it, and I feel like I break and shatter every single day. Yet, I'm also learning a lot about myself.
You know that saying, you don't realise how strong you are until being strong is your only choice - it's weirdly fitting.
I hope you're all doing well.
Keep hope alive.
