Friday Musings #5

Happy Friday! The first week of February is coming to a close!

The beginning of the week started out kind of rocky for me. For some reason, I kept thinking all of Monday that next week was this week. My brother's birthday is next Saturday, Valentine's Day is next Friday, and I have a dentist appointment on Thursday. I thought all that was happening this week. I did have a dentist appointment this week, yesterday actually. Anyways, Monday was a weird day haha!

I got a lot of my work done at the beginning of the week, like I did last week, which is kind of nice. I only have one other thing for class to worry about over the weekend.

This week I also started revisions on Golden Touch! Honestly, that was the easiest book I've ever revised! There were a few small things that needed fixing, I deleted a few scenes, added like two scenes and that's it. I've downloaded it onto my Kindle app and am now reading through it. I'm thinking I might do a post on it at some point to share about the characters and a little of what it's about and stuff. I just love this book so much and I can't wait to finish the edits.

Edits on Cursed are still going strong. I'm trying not to compare the struggles of editing this book with the ease of Golden Touch. Cursed has just been super difficult... Sequels are hard in the first place and the first draft was a major mess so it's requiring a whole lot more work. I'm still on schedule though. Once this draft is finished, I'll have about one more draft before I can send it out to beta readers! :b

I also finished reading the latest Renegade X book by Chelsea M. Campbell. They're so fun and easy to read. I get through a Renegade X book within a day or two. I'm so used to Damian's voice and Chelsea's writing style that I can easily devour her books.

Technically this was last week, but I went to a superbowl party on Sunday. That was really fun and just a nice, relaxed experience with my small group. No one there was an overly crazy football person so we could all just chill and have a good time together.

I had the dentist yesterday, which is never fun but at least now I only have one more appointment next week and then I'm done for a little while.

So, yeah... it's been a pretty uneventful week. Oh, it did rain ice Wednesday night. Like a lot of it! The roads were super bad. Thursday it snowed on and off... No sun in sight. I'm tired of all the clouds. Even if it stays cold out, I just want to see the sun for a week straight.

How has your week been? Has it been extra cold and cloudy where you are lately?

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
