A Quick Autumn Catch-Up

Hello, all those out there on the interwebs and happy First Day of Autumn! It truly has been a long time since I’ve written on this blog, and I’ve definitely missed it! Things have been crazy; as I mentioned in “OSR 2017, Amongst Other Things!” the boyfriend has now turned fiancee!

YES! I KNOW!

Truly, truly, it is a nutty, but good time! Frankly, I never knew how complicated planning a wedding could be, especially when I’m trying to launch my writing and bookkeeping careers! Lordy!

Furthermore, there are some things in the works–wedding and random–that will be life changing by the end of the year. I truly pray they work out for the best.

Speaking of writing, I am very pleased with how my technique is progressing, even if life tends to keep me from my office more than I’d like. There are some really good, concrete things happening in my novel and I do hope to be sharing it with you, soon! (Alas, if only money wasn’t an issue; I would write full-time in my pajamas and get my book out there faster! Wouldn’t that be wonderful?)

So, not that I’m trying to make excuses, but I adore you, dear readers, and I don’t want you to even imagine that I might’ve abandoned you all. I will see you soon. The next blog post won’t be too far off!

Have a happy, cool, crisp Fall, one and all!

I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO WEARING MY SWEATERS AGAIN!

 

A Long Overdue Blog Recap! PHEW!

First, GOOD LORD. Has it really been a month since I last updated my blog? Really? I mean, REALLY. Wow.

Well, all right then. Jeez. I’m sorry you guys.

I was hoping that I could get back into a routine after Easter, and I kind of did. However, I let other things slide. Like my YouTube channel and this blog.

Second, I did get to redecorating my website a bit here and there. If you look in the upper right-hand corner, there’s the sign up to follow my blog/website! And in the left corner, there’s now an email sign up for direct, first-hand news about everything that’s going on in my life! I mean, I’ll probably post it to my blog too. But the email is more personal, and I envision that it’ll be more entertaining too.

Anyways. So, yeah. That’s something I’ve worked on.

Third, I’ve also been submitting stories to different magazines and journals. I have… I think… five out right now? No. Six. I have two poems sent to Blue Mountain Cards, two short stories over to Narrative magazine, one to Lamplight magazine, and another to Portland Monthly magazine.

OMG I AM SO PROUD! And hardly tired, weirdly enough.

Wait. No. Make that nine. I’m still waiting on my two submissions to Museum of Words and a story sent to a Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology.

Fourth, have I just been doing that? NOPE. I’ve also been keeping up with my Supernatural articles over on Fangirlish. And… I’ve been trying to keep my novel and my YouTube channel going too. But those have fallen a little behind, along with this blog.

So that’s what I’ve been doing this past month. Along with some other things in the works that I’m not announcing, just yet.

Fifth, this week I’m planning on posting a new [kind-of] Kate/Optimus fic. It’s really going to be a one-shot of my friend’s OC meeting the Autobots. So it’ll be a little tiny jump into the future of Bayverse.

I’ll also be posting a new YouTube video about my paranormal experiences investigating Hill View Manor way back in 2011.

All of those will be coming this weekend!

I’ve decided that my Social Media “schedule” will look more like this:

Untitled

Basically I’m moving all my “big releases” to the weekend. So expect content galore!

Sixth, instead of posting EVERYTHING I’ve written or filmed this past month, I’m going to link to my Videos and Fangirlish pages so you can browse the content yourselves. Okay? Ok! Hah!

And, finally, FINALLY, FINALLY, the last bit of something I wanted to share with you. For me, it’s a time of change right now. This song has been playing on the radio as I’ve made some pretty big decisions this week (will hold off on the news for this post). And I found it truly inspiring for anyone who’s feeling down about their dreams and abilities. I hope it is as uplifting to you as it is to me.

Have a great week and I will see you all in the next adventure!
