I'm starting chapter 15, which also marks the end of book one! I cannot wait to start a full edit of my book so far, which will mean I'll be adding things in and really putting my nose to the grindstone. Piper is finally settling in, we got my writing space squared away again (which was only because she kept climbing the baby gates we had keeping her out of it), and my muse has returned! I shut down a few nights ago, and it feels like I'm waking up from a dream. Being autistic is hard, but I also found out there's this thing called 'late stage' autism, which essentially means, that as a child, I hardly displayed any damning symptoms, but as I grow into an adult, they become more prevalent. What my husband told me, was that a lot of people with this, report having had a huge meltdown, or burn out, and were never neurotypical again, to me, that's familiar. That happened to me right before my wedding, and I just never felt the same afterward. Being me, I just thought it meant I needed to take some time off of working and whatnot, but it's been 3 years and I'm not getting "any better". I've come to terms that I've never been "normal", and never will be. Life is.. an adventure, but it's at least one that I know I can handle, now.
But anyways, this post isn't about that!
My return, I'm convinced, is because of Harry Potter. I've been special interesting that book series, which means, I've been listening to it on audible, and it's been helping me get back into the groove and start thinking of different ideas! I've got some great twists in store for you readers, so hang onto your hats, it's going to be a bumpy ride!
