Sorry, I might have spammed you. Either way, have tons of fun!
Try to interact on the newsfeed and make friends. Having friends here and getting involved in the activities keeps ya coming back, and you never know where you'll pick up inspiration for your writing.
So, tell me what's going on on writing.com.

The contests, the events, what's happening folx?
Well, I still have "The Contest Challenge running. *Bigsmile*

Congratulations on baby #2! *Heart*
Hi everyone.

So, I've been exhausted for the last six months. Doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong, blamed it on my mental health. Not really conducive to writing, or keeping up with the community or anything except work and my kid. I let my membership lax cause I was in so ill and not writing or communicating with anyone except my wife and kid.

January rolls around and I end up in the hospital with severe pain and other symptoms.

Turns out my gall bladder was necrotic and I had gangrene.

Then I ended up back in the hospital with a chest infection and referred pain two weeks after getting out.


I'm back at work (part-time), writing again, and feeling healthier than I have since October at least.

And my wife is five months pregnant with our second child so I need to be back on my game!
Hope things get better. Grate on your success!
It's good to see your name on the site. *Heart* I'm sorry to hear about all the issues you've been dealing with but I'm glad to hear that you're better.

Congrats on the second pregnancy! *Heartb* That's awesome news. Definitely inspiring.
Thanks everyone!
