Yes, I know, it’s Monday and I’m just barely posting Friday Fictioneers now. Remember how I talked about that trouble meeting goals thing? I’m working on it. It’s a process. Plus I was Very Busy all weekend. (No, for real. I’ll tell you more on Wednesday).
To say I’m a wee tiny bit behind on my life is an understatement of the highest degree. I’m off to catch up with that a bit more now (at 10:30PM at night.)

Ever have one of those weeks where everything gets away from you, no matter how carefully you have it all planned?
That’s what happened to Wednesday’s blog.
But in super-awesome news: everyone send congratulations to Katie over at Modern Mommy on the arrival of her beautiful baby girl, Savannah!
Let’s get to the story, shall we?

I thought about doing a pithy something or other for today’s post, but I just couldn’t.
My friend’s daughter Liberty is very sick.
She only just turned five at the end of August.
Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma is even scarier than it sounds. It’s a pediatric cancer – a rare one at that – in which a tumor grows around the base of the brain stem.
Without radiation treatment, Liberty has six months. The prognosis with radiation extends her time out to an additional two years.
She only just turned five.
Liberty’s first radiation treatment is Tuesday. In support, we are all wearing red. Or something with Hello Kitty. Or both, if possible.
Consider supporting her, too. She needs all the support she can get.

I can set goals like a champion.
Meeting them on time? I’m still working on that.
ANYWAY. Friday Fictioneers time!

I said back in July that I was possibly getting myself on some sort of blogging schedule.
This post is proof positive of that goal. I’ve been working with Katie over at Modern Mommy to set up her own blogging schedule before her new baby decides to make an appearance; my own little piece of the internet began to look pretty shabby in the process.
So. Theoretically, of course. I have a new set schedule for writing, blogging, and all the other such things you may or may not find on WordPress.
MONDAYS will be anything that’s happened over the weekend. This will most likely be short fiction, and most likely from Chuck Wendig’s prompts, but if something big comes up life or otherwise it’ll show up here.
WEDNESDAYS will be actual blogging content. Shockingly, I have Opinions on things and I tend to like to share them (as anyone who follows my twitter feed has likely seen). It could be a heavy diatribe on the state of the world as I see it. Or it could just be cute pictures of Charlotte and my cat. It’s a loose goal.
FRIDAYS will forever be for Friday Fictioneers. Because it’s Friday Fictioneers.
There may or may not be posts during the rest of the week, but I doubt it.
I didn’t do last week’s Friday Fictioneers. I will admit, I was too caught up in other projects. Which is a shame; the prompt picture was quite lovely. But life had to take precedence.
Life has changed quite a bit in the last five months. The move was just the tip of the iceberg.
A Friday Fictioneers post, two weeks in a row? What is this madness? Could I actually be getting myself together and on a regular posting cycle again?
Stop laughing. It could -totally- happen.
