Worldcon has come and gone. You may have noticed my silence during the con, mainly because I was so busy doing so many things.
From participating on panels to doing a few shifts in Ops thanks to DC (and the lovely Ops crew from Pat McMurray on down) I was really overwhelmed in a great way.
I will be attending Eastercon in 2015 so I can meet up with the wonderful people who were accepting and lovely overall. Maybe I might even do some more volunteering.
I will have to post more when I’m not posting from my phone — still out and about in London right now.
Take care of yourselves until I return in September.
Well, I arrived quite unscathed and in one piece. Thankfully I’ve managed to get some rest and I’m feeling better than I have in a while. Anticipation truly is the worst thing.
The muses decided to speak up on the plane. Jonathan’s fear of planes nicely came up, though I’ve yet to hear the root of the fear, he still hates planes and flying. More the whole thought of a crash and burn at the end.
Hopefully I’ll get some time to try writing again.
I am pleased to say that the creative drive is coming back. For two years, I’ve pretty much had a creative drive that has been drying up. That it has been slowly disappearing from both the stress brought into my life from internal and external sources, and medication issues.
Finally, this week, I have been able to write again. I have found inspiration in music again. I am actually finding happiness in my life again. The light at the end of the tunnel was not, as I had worried, a train, but rather the wonderful light of creativity and happiness again.
I am happy to that the medication for depression has allowed me to be happy for the first time since I was a teenager. I’ve always experienced depression, from low level background noise to all out flailing to keep my head above water. Right now, I’ve had down days, but nothing even remotely close to what I’ve lived with for many many years.
So now, not only do I have wonderful ideas again (and the loudmouth muse-bastards again), I also have the ability to complete them.
Thank goodness for an upturn.
