Good morning, good afternoon, good night friends! How are you? I hope you had a lovely week, filled with great books and love. I was supposed to come up with another bookish discussion today, but I have lots of news to share, so… today’s a kind of Sunday Post day!
I’m taking part again in this lovely special feature created by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and, without further ado…let’s talk adulting (ugh), writing (yes!) and…my special feature.
But before getting into any of this, I need to say THANK YOU.
To ALL of you guys. I kind of reached a big milestone the other day, and I can’t believe this is happening. It’s weird, because I’m thrilled, but I know that numbers doesn’t matter, well, not as much as other things. Anyhow, I want to say THANK YOU for all of your support, love, and for making blogging something that seems true, real, and some place I can rely on and actually feel good, in a place where my life seems like it’s a bit messy and confused.
Also, in case you didn’t notice or know, it’s my birthday soon, so…to celebrate both this and YOU GUYS, I’m going to hold a little surprise. Hope you’ll enjoy it, and…well, you’ll have to wait for my birthday to know what’s actually going on.
I love writing. I love making up stories, I love getting into characters’ thoughts and skin, and I have a soft spot for childhood loves, drama, mysteries and creepy school / houses / people type of thing. But I haven’t been writing for almost a whole year now, because, well, life happened, I guess. I won NaNoWriMo last year, and tried and miserably failed at editing this novel for Camp NaNoWriMo last April.
Before getting any more into this, I need to mention my dear friend Kat, because she has been a huge inspiration in this. With her new Writing series on her blog, it inspired me to get back to it. Even if I know I will probably lack time, I want to commit to my writing. I don’t want to give things up.
Okay, why am I ranting about this and why am I bothering you?! I have made a decision about my writing, and my NaNoWriMo novel – well, first draft, for now. I realized that I needed to have a schedule, and some kind of motivation. And your words, as well.
As of right now, I am officially subscribed on Wattpad. As I rewrite this story, I will be sharing one chapter of it on Saturdays – well, hoping to, anyway. I hope this will give me the motivation to write towards some goal, to share my writing and everything.
You can read the beginning of my story right now by clicking right here. I would love some of your feedback, on here, anywhere, really. And now I’m going to go hide because I am way too nervous to be doing this. ALSO, if you’re not on Wattpad but like contemporary/mystery/romance and would be interested in offering some feedback, let me know!
If you’ve been following me for a couple months, or from the start, maybe it’s come to your attention that I graduated recently, bringing big changes, both great and kind of annoying, in my life. I’m not keen on sharing too much about myself, so I won’t dwell on this too much. That being said, I am starting a new job on Monday. Yes, that’s tomorrow, and yes, I’m totally having a nervous breakdown about right now. Also, it’s not exactly next door, so between commuting every day, working lots of hours and basically being tired / adjusting to the change, I might be a little MIA. I will still be here, my posts as well, I might just react like a sloth for a couple days. But I’m always here, and exciting things are happening in the blog…
