Just Wanted to Share an Update...

I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted.

I am starting the process of migrating from Google Docs. Due to Google removing many of their departments, I just wanted my work to be somewhere I feel is more secure. So, I decided to work on OneDrive although I've been experiencing some difficulties doing so. That's why I looked up other places that allows you to write books, but I just don't trust companies I've never heard of before or don't know enough about. First too, I like to see their stocks and how the company is doing to make sure my work won't be lost. It does seem Microsoft is more secure than other companies.

My health did delay my book being released. However, I recently believed releasing it during the winter season would be more appropriate.

It has been hard to post for one blog, let alone three. I will try to post something for the two other blogs as well when I can. That's all I can write.

New Random Updates

Recently, I've been getting into the final editing of Polar Qimuktis. It has been hard, but I try to do a little everyday. During editing, it was pointed out I use lots of non-American spelling, words and phrases when writing. I'm not sure where this habit originated from; perhaps reading classic books all the time? I have noticed these books having the same spelling and words that I now use in writing.

I was told I would feel better after surgery, but I don't feel better. In fact, I am feeling worse. I notice my family worrying since learning I was close to death. Before surgery, I did feel myself losing energy and life draining from me. My mom told me a bunch of crows surrounded the house, almost as if they knew I was dying. I felt weaker and weaker each day, but I didn't realize I was actually dying. A few days later, the same ill feelings return, especially this strange pain in my upper abdomen. I am not sure what this pain is since the surgery did not solve anything. I realized perhaps I'm not out of the woods yet.

Some asked to see the incisions, and so here is one...

The stitches are inside the incision, which allows you to see inside of these deep cuts. I now have a problem where 3 of the incisions are reopening and I feel the stitches busting. I have been doing things against what I'm suppose to do after surgery. Yes, I confess to lifting things heavier than 10 pounds, which can cause serious injury.

So, I am trying to figure out why I feel the same after my surgery.

I am in bad shape; so I just wanted to post for the week unless I decide to share another health update this week.

IWSG: Sepember 4 2019

It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group. If you would like to learn more about it, please visit this link:

If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?

I am a person who loves peace, and so I would like to write in a place with the most peace. This isn't a wish though, but a dream that I'm working on making a reality soon. I just have to find that place in the world where I can just live in peace and write. 

I would prefer to return to one of my ancestral homes, or return to the country my mom came from before she was adopted. It would be nice to write in a place with lots of beautiful landscape scenery, especially where I feel spiritually connected to. 

Perhaps it would be either in Istanbul, Ankara or Trabzon Turkey or Russia in the Volga region. It can be sort of hard for me to choose, but perhaps I would pick Russia because there are very beautiful and serene looking scenery that would be perfect for a writer. I wouldn't mind writing in a simple place with quietness and serenity.

A Few Random Updates

It's been 15 days since my surgery, yet I still struggle with recovering. The surgery has slowed me down significantly to the point it's really hard caring for my new rabbit and other pets my family has. It wasn't until now did I realize how much work it is caring for a rabbit. It's a good thing I get help from my family.

It's even hard writing posts, but I  just tried to post something in order to keep the blog active. Unfortunately I haven't been well enough to post for my other two blogs, but I'll post whenever I'm able to. I know I haven't posted since surgery.

It really sucks when you find out you're not as healthy as you thought you were, and these are one of those cases with me. So apparently, I have a few other health problems and so I do have an appointment to further examine my upper abdomen, where my problem is. I may need another procedure done, but I am hoping I don't have to go through another surgery. I am still regretting having my first surgery.

Despite this, I am still trying to get my book Polar Qimuktis released, but it has been hard doing so. I just need to make sure it is completely polished before sending it out there. In spite of my health, I am still determined to finally become a published writer. I didn't work this hard just to give up. Well, my family's been my source of encouragement because I've struggled to pursue being a writer. I think I would feel better if I was to publish something.

So, I can only write this for now. I'll make sure to share more updates soon.

So I finally have the blog upgrade. It took a long time only because I wasn't sure how I wanted to design it, so I worked with someone ...
