Cleared for Approach

Almost two months ago, I wrote a post, Technical Difficulties, wherein I said that I was having difficulty blogging because I was so angry.  I didn't want that anger to spill over into my posts.

Well, 60 days, three short stories,and many therapy sessions later, I am feeling better!  Cleared for Approach is direction for YOU.  It is safe for you to approach me.  I know you are all breathing a huge sigh of relief.

The three short stories all involve a violent death (not graphic) of a bad guy.  For example, one I wrote for a challenge on my writing forum.  The challenge was to write a western short story in 1500 words or less.  So naturally that bad guy was shot.  Very satisfying, I must say.  The other two, well no spoilers, if you like short stories, send me an email.  My email is lesliesillusions  at gmail.  And, yes, my therapist knows about the "writing therapy".  He doesn't seem concerned.  My husband, on the other hand, is wondering if he should find somewhere else to sleep.  I keep trying to reassure him that I only kill bad guys in my stories, and he is NOT a bad guy.  But then again, I did have that nightmare about him.  Hmmm, maybe he should sleep on the couch for awhile, just in case.

The point of all this is simply to say: I'm Back!


  1. Well I for one am glad you're back Leslie! You are one of the most loving, special people I know, and I miss you!
