We’ve got to stop meeting like this…

The last time I blogged was about mid-April, during Camp NaNoWriMo. I wish I could say that I finished out strong and completed my project. Unfortunately, I managed about 2k before I burned out. I plan on completing it some day though. It’s a story that interests me as a writer and I can see things playing out very interestingly. It will probably be just a Wattpad novel, but still, it would be nice to have at least one (if not two or three) novels just for Wattpad.
And it’s a bit of old-ish news now, but several months ago, I was super excited to finally get my own domain set up with this blog. I had a draft saved and then distractions left and right delayed my posting it:
Squeeeeaaaal!!!! I am so excited to finally be able to see my website address redirect to! There are a lot more changes coming, so please bear with me on that. 🙂 I’m hoping that very soon there will be some updates coming to the whole layout here.
I’m in the process of checking to see what sort of themes I can find so I can have a more website looking…website. That is to say, I wish to have a more professional looking author website in preparation for when I do get that novel finished and published.
Another thing that I failed to mention as part of the MIA-ness in February was my mom having an emergency appendectomy. Once the craziness of dinner theater was over, things seemed to settle down briefly. I was still staying at home during the day to help take care of my mom since she was sick. Then out of the blue we found out she had early stages of appendicitis. And after an emergency appendectomy, thankfully, she was ok. She bounced back surprisingly fast too; in the next two or three days she was walking around pretty well again. I still stayed with her for most of the next few weeks to make for certain that she was ok. Now she’s doing very well and is back to her old self again, with the addition of a small garden just big enough for a few things she’s been wanting to grow. I’ve even picked out some watermelon seeds in hopes of growing some…we’ll see how well that goes, lol
Since it’s a couple of weeks away, I’m also planning on doing the next Camp NaNoWriMo. Maybe I can finally finish my novel. In fact, I check Twitter nearly every day. So if you’re reading this, and you’re on there, please…bug me a little lot. Seriously, check in with me, ask how I’m doing. In the past when someone asks how my writing is going during a NaNoWriMo month, it seems to help give me that push to keep going and remind me of why I’m doing this in the first place. I have stories that need to be told, otherwise they wouldn’t be pestering me to be finished. Even simply going shopping, it seems like more and more I’ll see something that reminds me or somehow inspires with one project or another that I have going.
I think I’ve decided that this time, along with #CampNaNoWriMo, my personal hashtag for the month will be #FinishThatNovel because I’ve been working on it for long enough, and it’s high time it gets done. It deserves to be done and to be told.
So that’s what been going on in my life…here’s hoping I can keep up with Blogging Fridays now. I’ve missed blogging, and I have a lot of ideas for posts saved that I can work off of. And hopefully I can share a surprise soon. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while, trying to get everything just so before I share it. 🙂
