My internet was down for two days. While waiting for AT&T’s tech support to answer I started reading this story, it was good story I was enjoying it. I finished the story last night and at the end I find out the woman in the story married a guy seven years younger than her. Sorry for the spoiler but I was kind of shock. The guy was twenty-four and she was thirty-one. I have a nephew he’ll be twenty soon and I’d have a real problem with some woman seven years older than him trying to date him less more marry him. I’m not just shocked because it’s an older woman with a younger man. I just think that’s too big of a gap, especially when one of the people involved is still in their early twenties. I just find the whole thing weird.
I skipped the last two days of posting; I didn’t want to talk about the storm again. It’s hard to think about anything else right now but I am trying to move on. I started thing about why I’m having so many problems with my story. I originally started this story before I wrote Winds of Change. I finished Winds of Change about six years ago and this story just sat while I started and finished Winds of Change. When I picked it up again I couldn’t stick to the outline I’d made. Nothing I had initially written seemed to work. So well I tried to pick up where I left over in the story I ended up changing everything as I went. Now I’m trying to work out what I first thought the story should with what I feel the story should be now. It will take longer than I plan to finish. Hopefully In a few weeks I’ll have a sample ready to post.
There are still supposed to be storms coming through tomorrow. I am worried. I’m trying to concentrate on my story to keep my mind off it but that’s not working very well. I’m just going to hope it rains and passes on.
I didn’t write anything again today. I’m still a little shaken from yesterday. I’ve lived in Alabama for many years now and I’ve seen pictures of tornado damage but yesterday was a totally different thing. Seeing that kind of damage personally is so different than just seeing it on the news. I have definitely learned that the weather sirens are not just suggestions. A tornado is powerful and doesn’t take long to destroy anything in its path. They’re saying more storms are moving through here on Thursday. I sincerely hope that system will be nothing like what happened yesterday.
I didn’t get much writing done today. A tornado tore through our town. It was terrible; I don’t think I’ve been so afraid. I’m thankful to still be here.
Today was a better day. I have a my story back on a better track and I’m about to introduce a new problem into the mix. I also sold another copy of my short story. 😀 It’s good to have a reason to smile. 🙂
I missed placing a post last night. My new story has gone off the rails and I didn’t have anything interesting to share. I’m going to try to stop over thinking it and hopefully I’ll stop making so many mistakes. 😕
