I still will make every effort to read the Musketeers monthly challenges whenever possible. I hope to continue adding to the fandom, as I enjoy these characters and this show so tremendously.
2018 September Fête des Mousquetaires Challenge: Season 1 Episode 10: Musketeers Don't Die Easily
Again, I am at a loss for a story for this challenge. It comes from not having enough time or inspiration, especially when I was just taken aback by my recent medical testing. While my health is perfectly normal for my age, these tests have led me to a crossroads in my life. I have begun to feel the calling of the proverbial "mid-life crisis," with the knowledge the doctors have presented to me in the past few months. Many of my questions have been answered, but there is a certain sense of farewell that is hard to acknowledge in knowing that the opportunities that were so difficult for me in the past few years - and that I clung onto with every shred of hope - are now forever gone.

I cannot express enough that I am always humbled and grateful for anyone who reads my work and enjoys what I have published. I always do my best to reply to each review whenever possible, and I enjoy meeting the different authors who share in similar interests. I always use each review I receive as a gauge for my writing skills to see where I can improve.
Who I am:
I am quite a busy woman who is the mother to a challenging 11-year-old son, long-term companion to a wonderful man, pet parent to two very mischievous kitties, full-time office worker, and part-time photography student. I have beaten thyroid cancer, and I have both the scars and the life-long side effects to prove it.
I have been writing since I could remember, and I admit that I was not very good at it as a child. I often found myself discouraged by writing, as my stories were a mess of fragments, run-ons, dangling prepositions, and mistakes in active and passive voice. If not for a very kind and patient teacher who mentored me over twenty-five years ago in my freshman basic skills writing class, I may have given up with writing altogether. Ms. W. encouraged my ideas first and told me that the grammar would follow. Her support made a huge difference in my life, and I began writing stories late at night in an old notebook that no longer sees the light of day. I have no idea whatever became of my writing mentor, and I always wish I had a way to thank her for seeing something in me that other writing teachers had so easily dismissed.
It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage.

Sit down and put down everything that comes into your head, and then you're a writer. But an author is one who can judge his own stuff's worth, without pity, and destroy most of it.
Sanity is a waste of creativity.
