Where I'm At

I was cleaning up the little bit of spam on the site and figured I'd better talk with the few of you left who come visit here.

I'm writing again, if slowly. What I am writing may or may not be of use to you. I'm writing under my given name (Lynn Siprelle), for one--more on that in a minute--and more importantly, I'm writing nonfiction.

It's the story of what happened to me, which turns out to be as fantastic as what I usually write, except it's true. Friend, you would not believe. All strokes are weird; mine was unbelievably weird. It is a tale to inspire the gods, I tell you. I expect to be done some time in the new year. After this, I'll be back at short stories under my given name, and then the main series under this name.

I'm told my speech and writing are more like me. That's a relief; I'd hate to think I'd become someone else. Even so, anyone who took over my life right now would find themselves in a pickle--a comfortable pickle, but one heavy on the dill.

About the name change: it feels more accurate to use my given name for my writing these days. Work with sexual content, like the History, will remain under MeiLin, but everything else (like The Machine God-type story and the short stories-level sex, namely, not much) will be under Lynn.

So that's where I'm at right now: writing about me. Writing about what happened to me. Writing about a massive, massive stroke that I was not expected to survive. Writing about recovering approximately 85% of my self, and remembering, hoping for, working my ass off for, that last 15% to come in.

That's where I'm at.

It's a marathon, not a sprint.

... features heavily in that second-to-last paragraph, I note. Which fills me with happiness. As 'chu said, sounds like you're in a good place and getting better.
As to what you're currently writing being of use to us, I don't know about use, but the interest is certainly there, as far as I am concerned. Smile

Cheers,
Gudy

Some of us are even new. Hello. People are still promoting your books on blogs, on social media... some of us got to the end of the second book and thought 'Where is the third'?... then some of us came looking... And a few of those saw no new book and wanted to know if you were alright. They found this blog. They read back to find out your story. And now they wish you well. Smile

About Stephen King's "On Writing" is that it's half memoir. The parts that are actually on writing are of use to me. The parts about the drug addiction and car accident and following recovery are not, because I haven't experienced them. Were they interesting? Very much so. Don't worry about whether your writing is useful. We're still here. Smile
