Whoo, been a long month…even though the month isn’t over yet (nor is it very long, but OH WELL Long in my book).
Been really focused on eating healthier, exercising, and all that jazz. I’ve fallen off the wagon a few times, particularly with giving up pop (ugh, my Kryptonite!) but I’m doing good for the most part. Excited to see the changes in my body and mind as I go through this journey, and excited to what the future brings. I really want to go horseback riding by my birthday this summer, so that’s my goal.
Another thing that has me working double-hard: I want to be independent. Not just, “Oh I’m making money!” independent, but a car, a house, a yard, a puppy, sort of independent. It’s the puppy that’s really driving this one I’ll admit. I know myself too well: If I start looking up breeders now, I’ll start wanting it badly. So I’ve decided I’ll reassess my situation around Christmastime this year. And then look at breeders xD (I want an Australian shepherd, I’ve decided, btw! I’m so bad, I already have names picked out LOL)
On the writing front, after finishing Spellbound, things just went to hell in a hand basket. Had some family drama, which has resulted in my younger two siblings moving to our Dad’s house early March. We may or may not be moving to a farmhouse this summer. It’s all up in the air right now and just stressful. I hate change haha.
After deciding on a “game plan” for future releases this year, I picked up my 2011 NaNo, Souljacker, which I’d abandoned halfway through the month. Lucky for me, I’d outlined it 100% already, so I set up the outline in Sticky Notes on my desktop, made a mock-cover, and have been working on that. So far, all’s going smoothly. I forgot how much I loved Lucy
Spellbound‘s still in editing stages, but I’ve gotten one round of critiques back and have implemented them. I’m hoping to have it out by mid-March, but we’ll see what the future holds.
And an update on Wolfsong! My proof is on its way here. Should be here by the 4th. If all goes well formatting-wise, paperback should be available through Amazon, Createspace, and several other vendors in March!
