Worked the ITB Berlin last week. Got back yesterday afternoon. Despite a two hour layover in ATL, my baggage got stuck - probably because the airport authorities decided it needed searching. They broke the lock to get into the suitcase, and I am thoroughly pissed off. I've about had it with this paranoid country and I'm beginning to seriously contemplate moving back to Germany. After all, I was never one of those people who dreamed of living in the States. I only moved here because of my husband. And since the marriage is basically non-existent anymore, I really don't have a reason to stay.

I posted the next chapter of my WIP this afternoon, but as of right now, feelings of accomplishment have yet to materialize. There is so much fantastic fanfiction and so many wonderful writers out there - what makes me think I have any business among them?

Just got home from a free concert downtown. Vince Vance was playing. I'd never heard of the guy, but apparently he's quite famous. It took the organizers a lot of effort to get him to perform in this tedious hellhole small town in the South I vegetate live in, so I decided to give it a shot. 

The band was actually pretty good (even though I'm more of a hardrock than a rock'n'roll person), but I left halfway through the performance because I kept running into people I meet through my job all the time and, as usual, didn't know what to talk about and felt awkward. They ended up wandering off and I ended up depressed. 

I don't think I'll go to another community event by myself again. Ever. There is only so much loneliness I can bear.

Well, I got all my laundry done today, cleaned the fishtank, and went grocery shopping. You might laugh, but when you're suffering from bouts of severe depression as I do, such little things can turn into major actions.

I even managed to look at my beta's corrections and suggestions for the next chapter ("
Unfinished Business") of "Found, Never Lost" - something I'd been putting off for a couple of days because I was so afraid of what I might find upon opening the Word document. When I finally did open it, things weren't even close to what I expected, and I felt really foolish.

It took me several hours to work through the chapter, but I sent it back to my beta an hour ago and feel very proud of myself. Mission accomplished!
