It's been so long -- too long -- since my last update, so, consequently, there is a lot to talk about. I left off when I was miserably sick, but now I am feeling better. Something much more important is going on. The South Carolina Floods. In these floods over twenty people have died, 400 roads are closed, and hundreds of houses have been destroyed.

My family escaped with only a few technicalities - no power, undrinkable water, and water down our chimney. We now have power, but the other things are  still in the works.

I feel like I have talked to y'all a lot about that, so let's move on to lighter subjects:

The Dia De Los Muertos (I think I spelled that wrong) Competition recently started up, so I am writing a movella, Let Me Sleep, for it.

Another thing that I haven't talked about is The Dark Light Competition results came in. I'll have to admit, though I was happy for those who won, I was sad to not see When War Approaches on the list. Looking back, it isn't as good as I remember as I think my writing skills have improved a tad since I wrote that. Even still, I put a lot of work into it, so I was kind of sad to see it fail. Well, maybe it didn't fail. I am thankful and happy that so many people read it and enjoyed. Yes, nothing is a complete loss.

I think I am going to try and push an update for both Switch and Let Me Sleep, so I am going to wrap this up, but before I do that, I have one more thing to say:

I am finally going to read The Chronicles of Narnia. I have a copy of the whole series combines, totaling to over 700 pages. I am going to try and finish it before Christmas (about two months), and I will start once a finish a book shes_got_a_twist, a friend from school, suggested called the Grimm Legacy which is super awesome.

Anyway, as I said PEACE OUT.
