I lost my mother this January. We had been working on her short stories, getting ready to publish a collection.

She was watching TV here at the house when she passed away.

I stopped writing. I stopped editing while I was in the middle of readying a paperback.

She was a complicated person. We had a very contentious relationship while I was growing up, (she and my sister had a much worse relationship) so I had a lot to forgive her for.

It was 4 months before I could finish the book. I still can't look at anything she wrote by hand...there are 18 volumes of her short stories on my computer.

Relationships in my family are complicated. Sometimes I feel like I'm in the middle of a Soap Opera/Sci Fi/Reality TV show. There are serious health issues that need dealt with.

I HOPE I can eventually start writing again. I HOPE I can finish publishing her work.

I can so relate to having mixed emotions about a parent!

~~~~~~Signature's Off~~~~~~
