I know that a lot of you are quite justifiably put out with me, to say the least, for the long wait I've put you through, re: my other stories, but -- to be fair to myself -- I'm only just now beginning to resurface from an absolute morass of medical garbage that got in the way of writing in the worst fashion. So I beg your humblest pardons and offer an apology and request for patience in the meantime while I figure out the other stuff again because now it feels rather mixed up.
Good grief, where to start...
I'm incredibly, elaborately imaginative. I spend 90 percent of every day thinking and LARP'ing and this probably leads to a lot of the trouble I get in because, apparently, people don't like to be thought about more than they think about you. Maybe they think it's unfair or casts them in a bad light.
Too damned bad. Anyway, I'm quite happily from Michigan -- Detroit, at the moment, though I'd like to live in Ann Arbor. If I can walk around lost at four am in the cold and not have a bad memory about it, then I think that's the place I'd love to live. My other choice is Brooklyn, New York, but I haven't exactly decided.
For now, I'm focusing on recovering from recent brain surgery and trying to get my academic life back on track so that I can get through undergraduate school and finally make it to medical school before, hopefully, doing a fellowship in pathology and becoming a forensic pathologist.
I'd love to work full-time in a medical examiner's office either here in Michigan or in New York. Medicine, in general, though, has been a passion of mine since I was a child though I did commit the grave error of forgetting that fact once I reached high school.
Damned allure of screenwriting. If I could do both, I'd be in Purgatory. Heaven or Hell would mean I'm probably really dead and was either terribly good or awesomely bad, though given that I don't actually believe in the afterlife itself that'd be a little difficult to achieve.
I'm still figuring out the religion aspect of my life, but I find myself at home in both Catholicism and Judaism. Yes, they conflict. I've spoken with a Sister about this so I'm not that worried. I'm only interested in what feels right for me, not what the rest of the world thinks most of the time.
If I could get rid of the lingering insecurity about it, I'd feel a lot better, though.
I believe that'll come with time, however, so I suppose that'd make me an optimist. I feel like a cynic most of the time but my own beliefs and thoughts consistently bely that so I'm just going to go with it.
Whatever happens, happens. I'll get through it.
RE: New All Over, Middle Son, Frabjous Day, Battering, Dark Avenger, etc.; please submit any answers in PM form:
So, within the scope of WHAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED/IS TAKING SHAPE and what is being alluded to, what's something you think might happen? The reason I ask is that I need nudges to keep writing and keep my ideas going in a rational direction, I keep forgetting that about myself. Dialogue does that marvelously, however could I forget? Bad writer!
