"Don't confuse poor decisions with your destiny, Nightmare. Own your errors and learn from them. Let them empower your destiny, not sway you from it."

Repeatedly over the last year I have been told that I am strong and amazing. Oddly, I don't see myself that way. I see myself as doing what must be done to live, to write and to have shelter. As I look back over the year, I see triumph over struggles, but it doesn't seem all that miraculous to me. It was just what I needed to do to live.
I was asked to write out what a typical day for me was like in the last year. I will write up two because it was either one or the other. I was either chemo sick or traveling. I know that my fans have been crazy for the next book and my publicist suggested I share these two schedules to create an understanding.

I joke with my friends that I hope a crime is never committed in which I am a suspect. As a writer, when you hit something you do not have first hand knowledge of, you look it up. Now, in this day and age there is a record of everything that you have looked up even if you clear your browser cache. Only the top notch IT person knows how to really get that off your computer.
