    Hello, how are you?

    It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry. I hope that you're well.

    10 months since I last blogged. Shall I catch you up a little?

    It's been a long December and there's reason to believe...

    Maybe this year will be better than the last.

    I'd say more, but let's not tempt fate, she seems to be having a rough year too.

    Have you voted yet?

    This isn't an endorsement, I have no facts and figures to offer you, no scandals to mention. I'll just say that this election may well be the most noteworthy in quite some time for the turnout, and early voting is still happening tomorrow. If you mailed yours in, check to make sure it was received. If it wasn't, there is still time to vote in person and cancel the mail in. No matter how you do

    Hello out there

    It's been a long while, sorry for the radio silence. I've... been going through some life issues of late. Long time readers and followers might remember my wife has had some medical problems in the past... and well...

    What have you been up to during the apocalypse?

    I'm deemed essential, so... been kinda busy, more than a little stressed, but even if I have taken a little bit of time off from my main series, I still love working on a project. A while back I had an idea inspired by an image that I can't link to you, and it would not let me forget it. I knew exactly what was going on in that image, and had a scene and backstory written out in an afternoon.

Maybe this year will be better than the last.

I'd say more, but let's not tempt fate, she seems to be having a rough year too.

How are you? I'm surviving, somehow. My wife continues to recover for anyone curious, but she still has trouble catching her breath if she overexerts. We don't have her on an oxygen machine all the time now, just breaking it out for trips and for occasional times she overdoes it. Disability case is still ongoing, but them requesting another test is still not a 'no', so I hold out hope they will approve it early next year.

My own mental health has taken some hits, which is why I've been so horribly unproductive this year. I did, however, manage to polish off what I am prepared to call a chapter for my Folly story, and have shared it with my usual suspects to make sure I haven't embarrassed myself too badly. Expect that before the close of the year.

I want to thank everyone who has sent donations here and there, some unexpectedly and at times I hadn't even asked, like a miracle at critical moments. You know who you are, and if you want special thanks I'll be glad to mention you by name, but otherwise I'll assume you and I knowing you were being awesome is enough. Message me if you want a special thanks in a chapter description or something. If anyone else feels like sending a little aid, I won't say no. Here's a link, but please don't feel like you have to say you can't. It's enough to know people out there care, and rest assured, I hope for the safety of you and yours just as much as you hope for mine.

I know it's been a rough year for everyone, and I hope you all see your lives improve as we move on to the next.

The blog post you linked, is not opening

Ah, fixed it. I linked the manage mode, which only I can see, since it's to edit the blog. TLDL... My wife had a hell of a time, but she lived.

Now I can't open it, it gives me 404 error

... right. Third time is the charm, I suppose. :derpyderp1:

I'm so sorry

Hey man, take as much time as you need to write the story. You've both been through so much this year, I hope your wife makes a full recovery, and it helps take the pressure off your own mental health!


Best wishes, man - for you and your wife. I hope both of you will get through this and recover :twilightsmile:.

Hopefully, the next year will be better than 2020 on all possible fronts, and we will finally be able to take a breather from bad stuff. All of us could really use some peace and quiet... :unsuresweetie:

Glad to hear your wife is doing better, and best of luck with the disability case. Hope 2021 is a better year for everyone 🙏

Feel a little badly for not seeing this sooner, sending well wishes and keeping you in mind for if I can find anything extra in the budget.

No reason to be sorry for that. We all have lives and good lord it's been a rough time. But things have improved a bit, if it makes you feel better. Still trying for disability for my wife, but we did get a stimulus check that let us get a new (used) car. Granted said car ended up having repairs needed but everything was under warranty since we'd just bought it (and I got the powertrain warranty, best decision I've made since asking my wife to marry me) so... new car eventually, and I figure if they replace enough of it eventually it will stop overheating :pinkiecrazy:
