I haven’t been feeling well lately. I’ve been dealing with a nasty headache off and on all week, and I was supposed to have surgery yesterday. Thanks to my insurance company dropping the ball, I was forced to reschedule at the last minute. I’ve had a dozen ideas for posts, but I haven’t gotten any of them written (although I did start one – I think it was on Monday).
Since I didn’t have to work today, I thought I’d take a little nap and see if it helped. I was hoping it would. I was wrong. I’ve still got the headache, and now it’s worse than ever. When I woke up, I awoke to the news that my friend and fellow author, Lindsey J. Parsons, had passed away. Needless to say, I was devastated, even though I was never lucky enough to meet her in person.
I first met Lindsey on the writing site authonomy, where she and I were both members of the Alliance of Worldbuilders. Our little critique group has had plenty of ups and downs since 2010, but through it all, Lindsey was always a positive force in the group. She was a great author, a talented artist, and wonderful friend. Her death has left us all reeling, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Rest in peace, Lindsey, wherever you are. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
