Wow. It has been a long time since I was on WordPress talking to my girls. I miss you so much. As I’m sure that you’ve heard through the grape vine or just through my Twitter page where someone was awesome enough to put all my business, I am going through a very hairy divorce. For those who don’t know, you may read this with a hand over your mouth and the words, “no!” or “what?” on your lips. But it’s the truth and there is no point in hiding it anymore. I’ll still be Ms. Nelson after the divorce, as I am keeping my name, but the rest as they say is the rest.
With all the new changes that have occurred in my life – new house, new car, new employment and new attitude – I had to take a serious pause in my writing. It’s not because I wanted to, but because I had serious writer’s block. Talk about a mine screw, trying to write under serious duress is like writing on hot coals.
God has been good, as he always is, however, and my recovery back to a state of actual bliss was a short trip. I am now feeling much better. In fact, I am hopeful that the stories that I write for you will have even more depth and maybe more real experiences that we can all lean on and learn from.
It’s going to be hard to get back to RiverHouse as it was. I had to let my staff go and start a new. So, if you call there will be new voices. I have some orders that have not gone out and about 5,000 emails that I have not returned. I plan to get to all of that ASAP.
So, you see my world was in a bit of reverse itself. I had to learn some hard lessons about the people (person) that I loved and was forced to face that love in one person’s eyes isn’t always the same as in another’s. The great news is that I didn’t end up in the looney bin or bankruptcy court. I just ended up realizing that I’m so much stronger that I ever knew that I was. Plus, I had a few awesome angels on my side day and night.
I know that you’re waiting on Dmitry to emerge with a new volume of The Chronicles and The World in Reverse. I’m getting over my block and taking some time to explore some things that I had long pushed back in the closet. The real Dmitry even visited to remind me that there is still a lot of joy in lifeJ Thanks for everything, Mark.
You ladies are wonderful. You have been patient, prayerful for me and uplifting. I love you all, and I promise not to disappoint. We are going to have fun, going to go to the depths with our favorite men and we will conquer.
Talk to you soon,
Latrivia S. Nelson
