Okay, I know I said I would have excerpt 3 up roughly around Nov 30th, and
here it is 12/19 and I still don't have it up. As I have grown very fond of saying,
Life is what happens while people are making other plans. Unfortunately, the
computer I am writing the book on (an old Mac SE30) had to be taken offline
for a bit, but I just re-hooked it today, and have yet begun once more to revise
what has already been written. I think I have second guessed myself silly on
some points, and have reached the conclusion I will go insane if I re-read
Chapters one and two just one more time. I bit off a tad more that I thought I
could chew with this project. It is one thing to write a work of fiction; it is an
altogether different soup mix when combining fiction with reality. I want to
make sure that all of the medical referencing, terminology and information is
100% - and have beat myself senseless in some apsects. Now I think I know
why women love thier children so much: birthing them is a pain in the
a**. Birthing a book is as easy. I have, however, fallen in love with the
art of writing all over again, and I think my creativity has exploded. In the past
month alone, I have written thirty-something new songs, and have already
drawn up the themesketch for "The Vigilante Code" (my next book after
"Snapped".) With the weather so delightfully pitiful here, I am trapped indoors
with this electronic box, and therefore I have spent way too many hours online
and not nearly enough on the book. Now I am forcing myself back into the
same daily routine of at least one hour a day on the book (which usually turns
into 3-7 hours). So, I hope to have excerpt 3 up shortly, but will not promise
any date at this time.

As for me, I am doing good. Heck, who am I kidding - I am doing freaking
great. For the last 3 or 4 weeks I have been down to 2 to 3 attacks a week -
as opposed to a day. I have had a couple of bad episodes since Halloween, but
the CH's have really slacked down. I suspect that one of the, *ahem* -
recreational pharmaceuticals I ingested on that night may have possibly been the
culprit. Yes, I know - stupid me... I had been drinking and took anything you
would have given me at that point, "What? Cyanide? Yeah sure, I'll take it.
Cool." Someone gave me a tab of X - better known as Exstacy. It is a
hallucinogenic, but not quite the same as LSD or 'Shrooms. It has similar
effects, and I am wondering if maybe it triggered something that knocked the
CH's for a loop. If someone gets a chance - pop over to CH.Com and ask Q
or Flash what they know of Xtc. I am not going to second guess this though. I
am enjoying the time I have had being somewhat calmed down as far as attacks
go. It has been a real blessing for me to actually be able to start to function like
a real freaking human being again. If this keeps up,(and oh God, Mohammed,
Buddah, Tempest Fugit, Abdahl,...anyone who can hear me - KEEP THEM
AWAY!), I will have a band together and will be playing out in no time. I am
anxious to get out again and start playing - but have been, uh
"SIDETRACKED" for the last 3 years. If I do go out of cycle (knock on
head), It will be the longest cycle I have ever had in my life. I can only hope and
pray for either remission - or to go back to episodic - - or to never have to feel
the pain and anguish I have felt in the last 3 years ever again. I have thought
about one downpoint though: if this is not the end, my experience has been that
everytime they go away they return 10 times stronger. If that happens again -
the pain will be beyond unbearable - and I cannot even imagine how they could
be any worse than they have been, nor do I care to know to what extreme they
can get. I have survived some very hellsih moments - and now, I do not want to
think about those moments, but have to in order for this book to be real. I am
hoping that I can put just a little bit of that pain back into the pages of this book
- and maybe people will feel something when they are done reading it.

Okay, now that I have bored you all silly, I will leave you all with a wish for a
merry Christmas and Happy New Year for each of you. Hope you guys are
getting a break from the demon and able to gulp the Egg Nog freely. I will
admit it, I was bombed on Nog the other night, and couldn't believe I wasn't
more gone for how much I drank - and it was then I realized it was
non-alcoholic. So now I just wonder, where DID that buzz come from?
