New year, Old me.

It’s the New Year, so of course, everyone is making resolutions for the year. Some people are being smart about it, keeping it to things that are actually within reach (looking at you, Nikki ), and to you guys, I tip my hat. The rest of ya’ll are just crazy, and I wish you the best of luck.

Me? My only promise is to still be me. I know better than to try and make any sudden changes, and honestly, there’s not that much I want to change about myself. I’m not perfect, but I am me. I am the product of my life, and I am okay with that.

Now, I’m not saying there won’t be changes (in general), but the changes coming are about me finally getting off of my butt and getting serious about my chosen profession. That means more blog posts (dangit), more writing in general, and less Facebook games when I should be writing (really not liking that one…).

I’ve already gotten started on the more blog posts. I have two more posts about World Building in my queue to get finished, and I have another about Creative License vs. Laziness waiting to be written. There’s life working at a gas station (more exciting than you’d think, believe it or not), and life being a nanny of two kids who are characters all on their own.

For the more writing part, I’ve started work on “Storm Warning” again, and book two in my zombies series, “Blood Runs Black” went live on New Years Day. I’ve also joined the monthly writing challenge over at WritingChallenge.org , along with Nikki over at thebibliofeels. It’s only day 3, but we’re doing well so far. We just have to keep at each other, and that’s not exactly a problem for us.

The Facebook games…ugh. That is the tough one. I really only play one, but then I spend the rest of my time playing The Sims (4, of course) or DC Legends, and those…those are time killers like no other. In fact, I’m pretty sure Time sees those coming and just starts begging for mercy. It never gets any, but at least it tries. The other problem is that when I’m not playing those games…I’m playing Playstation. I don’t have the fancypants PS4, but PS3 has enough games to keep me occupied, and my roommate just added another one (more on that later).

So yeah. No new years resolutions, but a whole crap load on my plate anyway. Ah well. Fun times, amiright?

Day 20 & 21: lots of planning~

Sorry, was busy yesterday and today, so didn’t get much done, writing wise, but have been brainstorming a lot, and have two new story ideas to work with. Will keep you guys posted on those. One of them will most likely be co-authored, so that should be fun.

No promises on anything being posted tomorrow. It’s back to school for the kiddos and myself.

Day 5: and other good news.

Didn’t get a lot of writing done today, but did get some editing done.

Also had a surprisingly good day. I mentioned a couple days ago, I believe, that my tablet is dying. Well, today I found out I have an extra $200 in my bank account, so guess what I’m picking up tomorrow? Went hunting on Amazon after that and scored me a nice case/keyboard for it, and Batman: The Animated Series volume 2. Then, to top it all off, went to Sonic, and the shake I love to get (but rarely do because it’s about $4) was half price.

I keep looking around waiting for the bad news to come in, but nothing’s happened so far. Maybe it’s just the universe making up for the past crappy month, but I’m not trusting it. A friend told me not to be a Debbie Downer, but as I told him: “Right now, I’m more of a Terrified Tiffany, thank you.”

Fingers crossed everything stays at least somewhat peachy.

Writing proof:

Alex sucked in a breath. “Same hair, same eyes. Holy shit.”.
