Okay, so clearly I’m not feeling the whole blogging thing quite as much at the moment as I have been at other times. I’m glad I set the goal of posting once a week this year, and I’m proud that I’ve nearly achieved it, but I’m thinking of loosening it up next year and just aiming to write 52 blog posts in 2017. Given that some weeks I want to write multiple posts and others I’m like “literally nothing happened this week in my life or my brain, here’s a gif”, that should work better for me and make my blog more consistently good, so yay for that.
Here, in no particular order, is what is up with me and my writing this week:
It is cold and dark and it is making me sad. 😦
Also, after that period of intense concentration on getting my book finished, my already-poor attention span has degraded to, like, five seconds. Yesterday I started making cups of tea no fewer than five times, got as far as applying boiling water to a teabag twice, added milk once and then drank half of that cup before I forgot about it. I’ve already wandered away from this blog post at least twice. I really need to get it together, though, because… dun dun duuuun…
MY BOOK IS BACK AND IT BROUGHT EDITS!! I’ll try and do a post about the editing process once it’s over and my brain hopefully has slightly less in common with a… with a… yeah, I don’t know why I thought I’d be able to come up with a metaphor right now. The edits have given me a lot to think about but it was less painful that I thought it might be. I haven’t even had to have the “nooooooo my precious bookbaby has been torn to shreds woe is me!!” cry I was fully expecting to require before I got stuck in.
I’ve been getting so many hits to my original Wattpad Futures post this week that it’s actually freaking me out a bit. I’m not used to people paying attention to me! Why do you think I named the blog The Opposite of Popular??
The other day everyone on my Twitter was suddenly playing with dress-up dolls from this site and it was kind of the best thing ever. Predictably, I got carried away.
That’s all for now, folks.
