Thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting this prompt.

If we were having coffee, I would apologize for being MIA so long. I spent 6 weeks in the hospital due to now having congestive heart failure and a lot of other issues. I had oxygen for quite a while and spent 3.5 of those weeks in a rehab hospital getting off the oxygen. I still have and will have problems breathing, but not needing full-time oxygen yet. Last night I had my fourth sleep study. I have had sleep apnea for at least 15 to 20 years and it has been untreated due to not being able to find a mask to fit. So it is the underlying cause of my health issues. I researched and found that children get sleep apnea so I had to force the hand of my doctor and get them to get me a child’s mask. Hopefully, this will fix the fit issue and I will be able to use a BiPap machine for breathing. Right now I am so exhausted from constantly waking up all night that I am sleeping all day and all night. Not good, plus it causes lots of physical problems with congestive heart failure being one of them.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am planning on doing NaNoWriMo again this November. I am still working diligently on the novel I started, but it is now in rewrite. Too many things wrong with it, but going to rewrite it for November. It is a thriller and I am obsessed with the story and it has kept me working even though the month I wrote it in originally is long over. I usually quit whatever I started writing for the month. I love this story and am working hard at it. It might not make full novel length so might just be a novella, but I am working to actually finish it eventually even with the rewrite. I have never completed anything I started on NaNoWriMo and this looks like I might actually complete it. It will most likely be posted on my blog or WattPad as a second choice. I have my own blog so not sure I will post it on However, I still have a ways to go until completion so I will make a decision then.

My blog has been kind of abandoned all these months and now that I have gotten so involved with youtube I have even less time for it. I do videos and do live streaming for sprints for writing. I have gotten over my fear of the camera and there is a link to my channel in the signature below if you want to check it out. I lost a lot of subscribers when I was in the hospital so working towards my first goal of 100 subscribers again. I only have 8 to go at the moment. 100 is the first goal on

I lost a lot of the prompts I was doing. Some for sad reasons and some I don’t know what happened. So I am looking for new ones to keep me writing.

Be safe everyone,
