One for the Win Column

This is going to be a mostly non-cancer related post, but it's sort of groovy and I wanted to share.

If you know anything about me, you know I'm a writer. It's not how I make my living, but I've been published here and there, including a book several years back. I've won a few contests and stuff too. I'm even a
Mutant Reviewer From Hell, shamefully in authorial arrears. More importantly, writing is something I have always passionately loved to do, and ... it's honestly something I thought I'd lost during my treatment and even in the first stages of remission when all the mental wires seemed hopelessly crossed. I'll even let you in on a shameful little secret. What "writing success" I had during the first year of my remission, with the exception of this blog, was mostly retreads of things I'd written before my diagnosis. I was beginning to think I'd become nothing more than an editor for my archives. So, while this blog is not meant to be commercial and I have no intention of abusing it that way, I did want to share this with you all:

Yep, that's me.

Pretty nifty, huh?

I dithered for a while, but I've linked the cover art to, one of the places that Cassidy Creek Bridge can be downloaded from. Buy it if you're interested. It's a short story and at 99 cents, it's not going to break the bank. :) Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your thoughts! If fiction isn't your cuppa tea, that's okay too. Like I said, this isn't a commercial blog. I really just wanted to share this small but mighty moment of victory with you. Chalk one up in Sue's personal win column. This is my proof, to my satisfaction, that lymphoma did not take this very fundamental part of me away.

I am still a writer.
