Hey everyone! Thank you for stopping by this page.
I fought a hard battle with Lyme disease from the time I was 14 until I was in my twenties. A lot of people don’t know what Lyme disease is, so if you have any questions regarding the disease, I’d be happy to try and answer them.
Back at the very beginning of 2014 I decided to write my long-planned fictional book, When Life Hands You Lymes, based slightly on my own experiences. Knowing it would be a difficult process I began posting segments on Noveltea every Friday to help keep me accountable.
I posted the very last segment on September 25th, 2015, 90 weeks after I posted the first one. During that time I only missed one Friday (and posted on a Saturday) and then took a planned break for one Friday right after Christmas. So that means this story, my readers, and I have been on a long journey together. As of November 2016, I’m on the 17th draft of the book and about ready to look for an agent.
The story here is a very, very, very rough draft. The actual book starts in about two years after I start here on the blog, so what y’all are getting is a ton of backstory that I used to help me figure out the characters and then deleted from the real manuscript. Enjoy if you feel so inclined, but remember, you’re getting the roughest of rough writing here!
