And here I am to say, with a flourish and a twirl, that I am BACK in the blogging world! No more bland scheduled posts and leaving comments unanswered for weeks! This is my happy face. Because I am happy.
It’s four am here right now, but I couldn’t sleep. I’d joked to my brother a week or so ago that I was going to do a blog post at midnight September first – I didn’t think I’d actually do it! I’ve missed you all a lot; though many of you have frequently emailed me and made me feel very loved during my absence :)
The past month was spent in —–
a. Doing school (I’m reallyreally hoping to finish my senior year before Christmas and start in the new year free as a bird to study whatever I want and WRITE!) It’s a weird feeling, actually winding down and finishing subjects I never thought I’d be done with.
b. Reading. That’s right, I actually got some READING done!!! Granted, I still have a huge TBR pile, but it’s dwindling. Slowly.
c. Writing. Ah, yes. I reached 73,000 words in Monster and am almost finished with it. I didn’t expect to be slowed by the trial scene, but I was – however, I hope to have the novel finished within a week. I think I’m also experiencing prolonging-the-ending-because-I-don’t-want-to-let-my-baby-go. ARGH, why must I love these people so much?
d. Working on art commissions. I feel like I have an artistic block right now, and my artwork looks stiff and forced when that happens. Therefore, it irritates me.
e. Polishing up my armor. Of God, that is; my sandals of peace were getting a little shoddy. With my parent’s help and a lot of prayer, though, I’m getting back on track and am becoming a nice person again!
f. Planning for NaNoWriMo. Ah yes. An entire notebook devoted to Unforget, Cayne, Moon, telepathic officials and memory dens. It’s marvelous.
g. Listening to music. Lots and lots of music thanks to some epic friends who kept an eye on the KPop world and sent me files. You’re awesome.
I have a lot of plans for after I graduate – things I’ve been wanting to do but haven’t had time for. For instance, I’m going to become a big reader again – and review every book I read on the Book Fae, which will undergo a complete makeover. I’m going to devote a lot more time to writing as well as studying (writing, mythology, history, herbology). I want to finally get my driver’s permit and eventually a license (so I can, you know, drive places). In September I’m joining a Bible study group along with my mom and older sister, and I hope to make new friends and grow in God.
For now, though… I have a lot of blog updates to catch up on ;)
Big hugs to you all; I’ve missed you so much –
