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.

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.
