I have not been updating this at all, and I apologize for that. I went on a trip to the UK, things got awesome, came home, things got a bit sad, and now I feel I’m heading back up to awesome again, where I belong.
SO, I have been working hard on three different novels, that’s right, three. Not simultaneously, I feel like I’ve written enough in each word document to classify that they will one day become something, but right now I’m working on a book that’s extremely exciting to me (like I-can’t-stop-thinking-of-ideas-they-just-keep-coming type of book) so I think that one will come first. Anyway, no glory in the process, just write it!
As for my first novel, What’s A Year To Me? will be hitting the professional edits on March 10th! I’m so goddamn excited for it to finally get the treatment. It’s been a long time coming, mainly due to some booking issues with the editor, but that’s okay! It’s getting done! Hooray! I’m super excited to self-publish, maybe get a designer to help me out with the cover, and then have it all in it’s book-y goodness ready to ship off to buyers, and then have it available on Amazon!
So, there are some personal issues going on, as there always is, life gets in the way, but I feel like my writing hasn’t exactly been affected by it. Which, this may sound weird, it actually makes me so happy that I’m still writing even after anxiety attacks. I’ve had a lot of issues in the past with my anxiety disorder (which you would know about if you listened to my first podcast) when I had high hopes of being a Game Designer, as soon as the anxiety came I had no interest in being that. It really did frighten me, like if I had high hopes of being anything, would I be held back by this thing I couldn’t control? But I came back swinging this time, and I’m still writing, still creating, still obsessed with the profession. 🙂
Okay, so I have a question to end this update. When you read a novel, any genre, and the main plot is based around something you don’t know much about, does it throw you off? For example, let’s say you don’t know much about Video Games, do you continue to read regardless of all the references?
Food for thought.
I love you.
