… I am at a total lack of inspiration to blog. No ideas, no goals, no desire. Blergh.
And that, friends, is why I am here writing a blog post write now. Swallowing my frog. This is the end of non-inspiration.
Stuff has happened in this past month that have forced me to set blogging aside. Not necessarily because I wanted to, but because I had to. I’m using this lovely borrowed idea from Katie Grace to just let you know what’s happening currently. I’ll still have a monthly wrap up post, no worries about that. 😉
I’ve just finished the Lunar Chronicles and oh man, was it good! All around the inter-bookish-webs I heard that Winter ripped peoples hearts out wherever she went. I promise not to spoil anything, as I hate spoilers too, but Winter didn’t quite rip my heart out. It drug it through the mud a few times, sure, but it’s still beating. XD
I also just got my copy of Martin Hospitality in the mail! It’s sweet so far, and the cover is absolutely beautiful. ❤
I’ve been trying not to think about wishing. There are many many things I’m wishing and wanting for (like a wacom intous pro drawing tablet?? books from amazon? ice cream? a steady income? my dog to stop slobbering on me??) but those obviously aren’t going to bring me real happiness. Over the course of the past day, I’ve tried to put all those wants aside. (okay, perhaps not the dog slobber one. I’d still really like that to happen)
After all, I have food and clothing. Not to mention a roof o ver my head with four walls and heat for when it’s cold, and a beat-up car to drive about and wi-fi…
Oh so very random, but I just finished breakfast in which I had a smoothie bowl. Never heard of them? Well, it basically looks like this:
Essentially you make a smoothie and then cover it with toppings. Granola, fruit, PB, chia seeds, chocolate, pecans… the combinations are endless.
ha ha ha ha. Does editing count as writing? I hope it does. If it doesn’t, then I haven’t written in weeks. So much as gone on this past month I’ve had little to no time to read through Sparrow Singing again and do a line edit. However, If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you might have seen that I printed SS out… and didn’t do it double sided.
It’s dauntingly massive and exhaustingly heavy, and it barely fit in the binder. I was hoping to get through a round of printed line edits, and put them in the computer for a fresh round of betas by March but… we’ll see. I will definitely keep you updated.
Yesterday morning I was listening to Mere Christianity and feeling grateful for C. S. Lewis’s arguments and clarity, and also Jesus.
But this evening I got to feeling nervous. I’m in an Alice and Wonderland play, and as I am Alice (thankfully not the only Alice. There are two of us.) I basically have the entire script to memorize. So I imagined myself climbing on stage and getting ready to say my monologue in the beginning and… not being able to remember a single line.
But that’s irrational. I have till the first week of May to have everything memorized. It won’t be *that* bad.
Well, I’m for-sure planning on memorizing lines for the next two months. But also, I’m planning on editing this stinking novel, more betas, more editing, writing synopsizes, querying agents…
But besides that, working on the artwork for our drama t-shirts, as well as more pieces to put up in my redbubble shop I opened this week! It’s similar to society6 and other shops like that. Except you can buy vinyl laptop stickers on redbubble.
Looking Forward To:
Sunday evening. Then Monday. Then Tuesday. And then? Wednesday. Sunday at 9pm Victoria comes on, Monday my friends and I are having a ukulele jam session during lunch, Tuesday is my 8am class, and Wednesday is drama practice.
Then after all that, I’ll just be looking forward to Friday evening and the start of the weekend.
