My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

I’m Still Here, I Promise

I know it’s been like a month since I’ve posted. Time has gotten away from me, been super busy with preparing for the arrival of our first little one. June 16th is coming up quickly–although I’ll technically be full term (or 37 weeks) May 26th. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind him coming then–or even a little earlier. I’m ready to meet my little one and get my body back 😛

Anyway, how’s life with everyone? I’m trying to catch up on blogs but it’s been difficult 🙂

Baby Shower!

It’s been some time since I posted and this is non-writing related. But I wanted to post some pics from the wonderful baby shower my sister, mom and aunt threw for me this past weekend.

Some of the yummy cupcakes sis and Mom made

Homemade puzzles for the little one. Mom and Mom-in-Law drew these

Aunt gave me TONS of books for the little one. Yay for reading!

It was tons of fun and the games were a blast! I have two more showers still, both the same weekend (in three weeks) so it’s going to be a busy, busy time for me organizing all the baby stuff and writing out thank you cards. I will try to keep updating every so often and still keep up on reading and commenting on other blogs. That’s pretty much it. Hoping everyone is doing well!

Merry Christmas! And Other Things

First off, wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I’m heading up to my parents’ house for the holiday, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to write while there. Of course, I haven’t been writing much on here lately…apologies for that. I don’t have much going on in my life right now that’s blog worthy.

I do hope to get back to at least a semi-normal blog pattern come 2011. I need to pick up my writing again too–that’s kind of fallen away for the time being but I do hope to get back up and start again. If I don’t this book will always remain unfinished…plus like everyone (family, friends and co-workers) keep asking me when it’s going to be done, so I can’t keep coming up with excuses forever!

EDIT: Just found this wonderful contest over at the The Ruby Slippered Sisterhood blog.  They’re having a Winter Writing Festival, which will sort of be like a mini-NaNo, only YOU set the goal. You get a point each day if you reached your goal, whatever that is. It’s starts on January 10th and they’re going to setup a sister site for participants to share and talk about their writing goals. This is what I needed. 🙂

Anyway I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I hope to be back again blogging come 2011. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Time

I can’t believe how quickly the days are going by! I didn’t even realize it’s been so long since I’ve updated…

Sad to say, I did not finish NaNo. I got about 10K written: 4K on my first attempt/project and then another 6K on the same book I’ve been working on for what seems like forever. On that topic, I can’t help but admit there are times I just don’t want to continue with that story. It doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. But I know everyone would protest and yell at me if I “trunked” it so I won’t. Yet 😛

Anyway, I really have nothing else to say. I don’t want to elaborate too much on baby happenings just because I don’t want this to turn into a “mommy blog” 🙂 I’ll mention the important things–like the fact baby’s doing good as of last week’s appointment. The nausea is still there but not as strong. That’s pretty much it. 🙂 I hope everyone else is doing well too! I’ve gotta play catch-up on everyone’s blog…

Life is Made of Awesome

September’s here, the weather’s getting cooler and my favorite season is rapidly approaching: Awesome.

Got my Avon order in today and it’s like Christmas everytime a package comes, especially when there’s fun nail polish colors.  🙂

Vacation to Disney World is rapidly approaching, anxious to have a break from work and just relax. Also, really looking forward to acting like a kid again and forgetting adult responsibilities for a week. How great is that?

New shows are coming on TV soon. I don’t watch much but it’s nice to have something to look forward to on certain evenings, instead of trying to fill my time watching old episodes of King of the Hill (which is still epically funny, no matter how many times I watch it).

Life is good. 🙂

Another Post of Non-Interestingness

Yes, I made that last word up.  Adding “-ness” onto a lot of words makes life much more fun. 🙂

Besides that, I really have nothing else to say. I just thought I should post since it’s been over a week since the last one and I didn’t want you, my faithful readers (if there are any left…) to think I fell off the face of the earth. Although I’ve certainly felt like I have on some days.

I’ve been so busy writing articles as well as being so flippin tired from work every day that I just want to come home and avoid spending more than ten minutes looking at a computer screen. So instead, I plop on the couch and watch movies from my instant Netflix queue, via the Wii. (I’ve watched some pretty awesome BBC mini-series the last week; I believe they are my weakness).

I did manage to get a chapter edited but only because I’m getting critiqued tomorrow. See, it takes knowing that it’s due somewhere before I actually write the silly thing.

And that, folks, pretty much sums up my super awesome and exciting life as of late.

Lack of Posts Explained

Sorry about the lack of posts. I really haven’t had much to write about and I’ve been doing pretty poorly with my miniNano goal. It’s like the desire to write has temporarily disappeared. I say temporarily because I know it will come back (as I’m searching for it now :P). It’s not writer’s block, but more like writer-is-going-through-a-period-of-self-doubt syndrome. It must be something weird I’m going through as I’ve even lost some of my appetite. I will be fine but I had to take a bit of a step back. Hard to explain, although I’m sure most of you who are writers understand.
