Hiatus

Hello everyone!

The time has come unfortunately to do this but today is the official announcement of my hiatus. I have too much going on in real life and it’s what is causing the block I’ve been having on my writing. Between Codename: Danger, After Midnight, Cold Blooded, The Midnight Kiss (a new story I’ve been writing/unpublished), The Chameleon (also unpublished), working on two novels (Secrets Kill & Call Waiting), buying a house, working on completing another degree to start working from home and planning a family with my husband it’s just become overwhelming.

Wow! Am I really doing all that stuff? No wonder my brain’s clogged! My brain also refuses to take a break from anything and keeps thinking up new stories all the while I’m protesting until she wins (hence TMK and TC!) My Mom has also been in and out of the hospital and I’ve been doing a lot of running from my side of town to hers (40 minute drive without traffic) to see her and take care of what she needs.

I have also unfortunately discovered an issue with my game. After downloading a community lot (which was subsequently uninstalled) I have been hit with the “Materializing Materials” bug. For those of you who aren’t aware, this bug occurs when a pattern has INCORRECTLY been converted from a Sims3Pack to a Package file by its creator. What it does is prevents you from the ability of recoloring ANYTHING whether it be clothes in CAS or a car in Build/Buy mode. So it seems a complete uninstall/reinstall of my games is in order and we all know that to be an arduous and aggravating job!

I will continue writing in fact my plan is to work on the stories without the pressure of “publish now” that also adds to writer’s block. The current progress on the stories is as following:

Codename: Danger - 3/8 chapters written, none with shots.
After Midnight - 2/28 chapters written, none with shots. (Sheesh this one has really fallen behind.)
Cold Blooded - up to chapter 51 written, 6 with shots. (Currently published up to Chapter 38.)
The Midnight Kiss - 6/10 chapters written, none with shots. (Started 03/04/14.)
The Chameleon - 2/10 chapters written, none with shots. (Just started yesterday.)

As my work progresses, I’ll update accordingly as I’ve always done to keep you all informed! Thank you everyone for your understanding and taking the time to read my stories. You have all been an incredibly huge support and I appreciate each and every last one of you!
