I have not been doing much with my time save work on the chainmaille (I WILL get it), and watching shows. I watched Jack Ryan, and very much enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to whenever the next season comes out. At the moment, I'm blasting my way through Lucifer. I'm in two minds about this show. It's very standard cop with civilian tag-along, will they won't they kind of a deal. And there are times when I think the character of Lucifer is a bit... iffy, and then other times when it was absolutely completely nailed. I very much appreciate that they made him bisexual, though.
The show itself is cute, often funny, and very often a tad melodramatic. Still, I'm enjoying it well enough, and there are some scenes that are knocked out of the park, so I shall continue to watch.
Yesterday, however, I did have a lovely interaction with someone online, who queried me initially on the whole EI thing I'm struggling through right now. They bought a book (Human) in the end, and I got word today that they're really enjoying it.
I was really struggling this week keeping myself together. Financial stress, coupled with feeling like a complete failure with my writing and anger at myself over my life choices made for a potent depressive episode. In any case, this lovely interaction and the follow up left me feeling so much better.
And literally just now as I type this, someone contacted me on Twitter to let me know that they just finished Skylark and enjoyed it.
Listen, I'm not saying you have to or you should, but sometimes letting a writer know you liked their stuff can really make or break their day. My whole month has been made.
So, thank you to those who have reached out. I really do appreciate it. It has lifted me up when I needed a boost.
Right, I have more chainmaille to attempt.
