I really wanted to have my current unending art project on the pathetic accomplishments list below. Unfortunately, it is proving too much for my old computer, and so many things have gone wrong over the past few weeks that I feel close to a nervous breakdown or at least a massive bout of ulcers. Worse, I expect I will thoroughly hate the sight of it by the time I actually manage to finish. So much for printing it out and hanging it in my bedroom for my birthday!
But the maimed art project is far from the most painful event of the month. That was actually near the beginning, when I abruptly realized that what I had to sacrifice at the end of April not only changed my future but destroyed what I needed for continuing the second Triune novel. God made me surrender the hope I required as "fuel" to write those novels, but the worst part is not knowing for how long. Weeks, months, years, or permanently? If it's permanently, I would really like to find out soon so I can throw it all out and stop hanging in limbo.
But I'm not getting an answer to that, or any of my other big prayer requests at present. Hence it being a frustrating month. Very.

As for June, all I can hope is to keep rolling with book 3 rewrites and maybe even finish that art project before it puts me in a padded room or makes my pc explode. I would like to start writing something, but that's another prayer request that's not getting answered. June will also bring my first real challenges with summer light and heat, as I'll find out how well I can maintain my health and mitigate summer depression symptoms in my new place. Probably not as well as at Aldamar, but hopefully not too dreadfully badly, either...
June also brings a pay raise and my birthday, so there are bright spots!
