For the last week or so it has been almost impossible to post anything. It takes me three times as long and what I get is not what I wanted. Others tell me they are having issues as well. I guess if you only post once in a while you wouldn’t notice it, but I post a lot of stories on here and this is very frustrating.
I have rebooted over and over and used fresh posts and nothing makes a difference. I like to copy my old post as a template and just change what needs to be changed, but it won’t let me. I can’t even copy the original post and try to manipulate that to fit what I need. I am really annoyed right now.
And if that isn’t bad enough I have 3 blogs and they all work differently.
I used to recommend WordPress to everyone, but right now I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy. YouTube is just as bad. Constantly fixing things that aren’t broke. Cut it out!!!!!
And if it is just me, what the hell did I do to you? Cut it out!!!!
Shortly I will be posting my newest piece, a novel, with lots of chapters which means lots of links, but the way this is working right now I won’t be able to post it on here. Please fix whatever it is you broke now.

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge. Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you. You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly. You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish. Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise! I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Detective Fisher had to think fast. He didn’t want Eileen to change her mind although she might not like his suggestion either. Many times in the past they had used decoys to set up a suspect. If he could get her to agree to be a decoy and lure in the professor they might catch him in the act although the last thing he wanted was to get Eileen hurt if something went wrong and plenty could go wrong.
“Eileen and Kyle I need to have a serious talk with you two right now. I have to leave and get this case started. Eileen you will have to file a rape report, but we will keep that silent for now because I would like to use you as a decoy or lure to draw him in and catch him in the act. However, and this is a big however, this is dangerous for you. We would do everything we can to keep you safe, but something could always go wrong. You need to understand that before agreeing to be a decoy.”
Eileen and Kyle look at each other. Kyle says, “I don’t want anything to happen to you, I love you very much. It would kill me if he managed to kill you. However, I agree, that this cannot go on forever. He seems to think he owns you and who knows how many others right here at this university he might be doing this too as well. Someone has to stop him. The man is a monster.”
Kyle turns to Detetive Fisher with tears in his eyes. “Do you truly think you can pull this off and that she won’t be hurt?”
“Kyle, I would give my life to save her if need be. I promise to do my best to keep Eileen safe. You will have to trust me and my team.”
“Ok, let’s do this,” Eileen says, trying to sound brave, but the fear was in her eyes.

I knew it was almost 10 years although I wasn’t sure just how close it was. I got the notification today. I have 3 blogs, and this one is the newest. The first one I hardly post on anymore and the same with the second. Most of my posts are on the new one, this one.
And I have had the boot for 2 weeks. I think they’re holding me hostage. They want me to do all these things before letting me leave but I couldn’t do them before. A nurse told me that the doctor has to release me and rehab has to release me and the social worker has to release me and said don’t tell anyone but then they check to see how long your insurance will cover you to make their final decision on when to discharge. I don’t even have a tentative date yet. I was told that it would probably take 1-2 weeks after they decide I am ready. That sounds like something this sleazy hospital would do. I still need to figure out how to report them once I am out of here. They say you can report these instances with out retaliation but I am not stupid enough to believe that one.
2 1/2 weeks in rehab hospital. I now have a walking boot but you can’t just hop into one and go. Maybe someone younger could but not me. It is taking training to learn to walk with it. I get out of bed and walk now. Short distances but further than before.
Two weeks tomorrow and I finally got an appointment with the orthopedic doctor.
I didn’t have my book one manuscript so I started working on book three with my phone. I had written a basic story with the prompts and it was the newest so I am starting to write a beginning while I waited for my daughter to copy over book one into Google docs. She did that last night. It’s slow going on the iPhone and Google docs.
I was standing there and my ankle twisted under me. My lower half of my body was numb so I didn’t feel it. I fell hitting things on my way down.
I was taken to the hospital and they splinted it and told me to go to orthopedic doctor. I couldn’t walk so they kept me till they could find a rehab hospital. No orthopedic doctor has examined my foot yet and it is still splinted. I am stuck in bed with my bedpan.
This was an important month for my writing and I can’t do anything about it. I will most likely miss the end of NANOWRIMO and the deadline to have book one sent to an editor. I was doing beta reader edits and some rewriting.
I won’t be updating much as using my iPhone is difficult for me, but I didn’t want to just disappear.
Close your eyes, relax and prepare for an inner journey, breathing deeply and easily.
You stand on a green mound by a sunlit sea. Far below you is a pristine shore of white sand. You hear the echoes as the waves wash gently, rhythmically, against the base of the cliff. The soft, rushing sound of water in the shingle whispers in the clear air of morning.
The sky is a pure blue, the colour of the Lady’s robe. Forget-me-not blue, and at its heart, as in the flower, the golden circle of the sun. The cry of a distant gull touches your heart with an unfathomable yearning, yet you are here, now, in this time and in this place. There is no other thought in your mind, only here, only this moment.
You close your eyes and with sight absent, other senses seem…
