I want to start this post by saying it is absolutely beautiful outside today. The weather is just perfect and I’m hoping to be able to do most of my other work out here today. I think my dogs agree with me too.

Now to what needs to be said. My laptop is back in repairs. I will be without it for about a week. I apologize for the last couple of weeks and not posting. I had little time to write and therefore couldn’t actually get any of it done. It caused more stress than I was experiencing due to the chaos that has been the last little bit. It’s slowed down since then but of course my life got busier.

I have taken up a job that mostly requires me to work from home. It’s nice but it’s taking me a while to figure out how to balance my life out. I have my responsibilities at home, my responsibilities for work, and then somehow in there I have to find time to write (once my laptop is returned), exercise, see my boyfriend and friends, and relax. It is difficult to find time to do everything. So needless to say it’s been stressful (this of course not counting the rest of the things that go on in my life but I’d rather keep my more personal problems off the internet).

Now my laptop is in for repairs. I’m in no way thrilled about the cost or the time away from my computer, but I don’t have a choice. It’s been having problems for a little while now and the temporary fix lasted at most three months. So now it comes to the better fix and hopefully permanent.

So that is the best update that I can come up with for now without it sounding like a lot of excuses and whining. I will do my best to update when I can and get more interesting posts on the way when my laptop is back where it belongs.

Thanks again to all of my followers out there and all of you who have liked my posts in the past. It means a lot to know I still have support out there with my writing.


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
