A-a-a-a-a-and it’s none of your darned business, but I’m going to tell you anyway…
Hi, everyone! Hopefully more good pen friends than not. (I still welcome the old runaways who I miss!)
So nothing is perfect, but if y’all heard the February 2018 update podcast, the better life qualities still stand. I had a traumatic accident pressing a link and feeling drowned by all the social media targeting to my brain that, yes, I left a few posts of my traumatized reactions and managed to finally log out of that beastly creation! (FB) I also got the opportunity to vocally explain to (real-life) friends why it happened, and you know something? They had enough information from me to understand the situation completely. (As opposed to having so much *less* information and making up some random falsehoods about me.)
I have also decided that I need more “Kipper” shows in my life. I missed that pup! I still have the cerebral stuff (“Connections”, “Sherlock Holmes”,) and The Pit stuff playing, but living life is also nice!
I am loving my pen pals and letters and thank you for keeping me company if I haven’t already told you.
I’m editing more of Episode 18 “Braving The Waters” and allowing myself to enjoy that creative endeavour in private. I wish I could share more of the Pit show but the commentary for later episodes is not forth-coming so I have to continue to take care of myself and leave it be. (There is plenty to do in the mean time.)
I’m also editing chapters for new audio books which are very important. I’m rusty but it’s very good for me and books are so wonderful for simply making observations of life that help in incredible ways.

Isn’t that splendid?
Another portion is we’re soon finishing up “The Hand of Fear” on Doctor Who and I am way bummed because this is the last set with Sarah Jane Smith!
It’s really good, the special effects, anyway. Making jokes about this hand crawling around like Thing versus The Hand of Count Petofi. I think we made a joke of “The Hand of Count Peto-Thing”.) But whoever did the special effects on that was really good for their budget! (No bubble-wrap spray-painted green with that one!) Plus Sarah Jane’s oufit is such a twee like anime type thing! I gotta get some pictures!) And it’s got stars on the front which reminds me of a Dr. Suess story…
But with Sarah Jane’s departure that means K-9 should arrive soon, so that cheers me up. (I have hired K-9 to help with The Tardis while Barnabas is on board. Don’t worry, it’ll work!)
I’m also seeing stats for the podcast are low so that makes me smile a lot! ^_^
Helena mentioned finding Kathryn Leigh Scott’s books about Dark Shadows available through e-reader library means, so give that a run if you enjoy those. (I do and I thought most fans did!)
Speaking of which… or witch… I saw something big all about “Bewitched” that I’m itching to get. I could sure use a big volume like that. “The Bewitched Continuum: The Ultimate Linear Guide to the Classic TV Series” by Adam-Michael James. (I get lost with Bewitched more than Dark Shadows because Dark Shadows has compartments and Bewitched just keeps going.)
Getting a bit of an itch to get to more of Sarah Collins DuPres’ new life as a kid in “Margaret Josette DuPres”. I don’t know; maybe I was worried about her growing up too fast. But it’s hard to work on that novel without chat about it. If I don’t know quite what previous readers enjoyed or were looking forward to than how am I to contemplate where to take it? I get asked for more but that’s all I get asked for “more”. (Would readers like me to write the word “more” 3,000 times as a chapter?)
So yes, I’m still working on creative pursuits, cleaning up the house, doing audio books (while I shake my fist at technical problems) and somehow learning how to live with this new layer of PTSD I gleaned from sharing this project when social media schemes were ruining our social skills. (I already had enough trauma from before so now? More therapy for me… *sigh*)
Well, if you enjoy the work so far and have any questions I’m here at the web-log, by email, and Google Plus. (That social media site is so delightfully dull!) 🙂
