I was also terrified of horseback riding my favorite hobby. Yes, yes, being terrified of one's favorite hobby quite the conundrum. Thankfully, I wasn't afraid to get on the horse, just everything that came after getting on.
All this will tie into my job, I promise. Just one more rabbit trail before it does.
So, to make a long story short, I'm not well liked at work and bit of this has to do with my lack of involvement in the foreigner community. There are a lot of reasons I haven't gotten involved but it comes , I feel overwhelmed with this job, writing, maintaining one very good friendship, and running a publishing company.
Well, that's what's going in my life. Okay, not the only thing going on. My short story 'James' has been chosen for an anthology by Liquid Imagination. Also, I had a dream about a novel that I had previously abandoned, I dusted it off, dusted off and with my head extracted from my butt, discovered my dream was right. I know how to tell this story. Yeah!
