Tough Decisions

Life is short. How many times have you heard that? Too many times to count, I’m guessing. But the truth is, life IS short. Really f***ing short. Some days this harsh reality slaps you in the face more than others, but when it does, it gets the wheels turning, the thoughts churning. It makes you think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. 

This is my way of saying I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. So much thinking my brain has asked me to knock it the hell off. But decisions have to be made and tasks need to be completed. 

Which brings me to Josie Hawk. I love that girl and her motley crew. I truly do. I’ve been working on her next chronicle for nearly 2 years now. She doesn’t like how the story is going and neither do I. I’m not sure why this is happening, but I’ve decided to give Josie a break. She’s going to breathe and so am I. I feel like I’ve been holding my breath for so long, too long. I need to let it out, let it go. She’ll be back. Or she won’t. And I’m okay with that.

I’m going to write a story I’ve been thinking a lot about. One that is dark and sad and light and beautiful all at the same time. I’m going to write it for me and hope my love for the story will translate onto the page and consume you as much as it’s consumed me. 

Love is rarely pretty, but sometimes, if you’re lucky, it’s beautiful.

Go out there, breathe, and be happy…
