An Update From Anita...
Since I posted several weeks ago that I was going to write a book and "tweet" each day about my progress and word counts, life took one of those unexpected turns and this project has taken a completely different turn than any project ever has in my life. As many of you know, I had six surgeries in a year, following many years of poor health, and I've been looking forward to recovering and feeling better after getting all of that behind me. Alas, I was hit with an infection that has apparently been brewing inside of me for quite some time, but it hit the surface hard during the holidays and has been very menacing since then. I don't tell you all of that to get your pity or sympathy, but only as an explanation for the fact that my grand idea of sharing a writing journey with all of you didn't go as planned. I am doing everything I possibly can---balancing both medical and natural remedies---to combat this infection, and I feel confident that with time I will be fine. No worries there. The infection, combined with everything else that preceded it, however, have really set me back physically, and my ability to write hard and fast just isn't with me at the moment. Some of my symptoms are extreme fatigue and a foggy brain. Not compatible with creativity. The book that was due the end of February is not even half done, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to finish it. When I do, I'll let you know.
In the meantime, life goes on, my editors are very kind and compassionate, I feel very blessed and I'm able to do the things that HAVE to be done. Emotionally and spiritually I'm doing great, and I have so much to be grateful for.
Anyway, that's the news from my house. Hope you are all doing well!
