Last year, I would do monthly recaps. I had every valiant intention of continuing them into 2015, but here it is
July August and I haven't even touched one. Alas.
So because I've been out of commission and I'm back to regular blogging again, here's what I've been up to, in one general recap.
2.) I explored the world of emergency veterinarians.
My cat, Tuxedo, whom I consider one of my best friends, got sick a month ago and we took him into the emergency pet hospital. He ended up staying for almost a week, and his diagnosis was kidney disease. He's getting older and so his time will eventually come, but until then we keep him comfortable with IV fluids. We've gotten quite adept at learning how to administer them, and I know how to change out a pet needle.
3.) I dyed my hair.
Dying my hair red has been on my list for a long, long time. On July 9th, I did a hair glaze that added a red tone to my hair. I love it.
4.) I have been babysitting.
Babysitting a lot.
I've also joined a new blog project titled the Young Writers' Treehouse! It started out as a bunch of excited messages and it was so exciting to see the project build from the ground up. There are so many awesome people involved and I love the team I'm working with. It's my passion to help young writers and this is just the place to do it! You can view my first post on deepening your characters here. I'll also be posting tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that!
A month or two ago, I took a brief jaunt into attempting to write my novel Evanescent Fireworks, but my character was turning out too bitter. The answer? Write my character with a slightly cynical voice, Fiona--the protagonist of Because I'm Irish. Evanescent Fireworks was put on hold, but I did finish BCII, so... yay?
Now I'm working on The Angel Novel, my third attempt to actually write it, and it's going well at about 22k. In the background I'm also thinking of ways to rework my second draft of Lost Girls (which includes unintentionally coming up with ways to make it more painful). I'm also thinking about how to write Lost Girls' sequel, Cracking Glass, and its spin-off, Metal and Bone (probably my NaNo '15 novel). Other than that, I'm pinning a lot and silently plotting new novels. Muahaha. You can find out more about all these random projects on my novels page. I'm also co-writing with a friend again, which has been awesome.
tv: I finished all of The Walking Dead and I LITERALLY cannot express how much I love that show.
I also watched all of Bob's Burgers (except season 5) and laughed so hard at almost every episode. I still need to finish Daredevil, which I will now be doing in order to recap it for The Fangirl Initiative. Also... I'm watching The Office now and it is hilarious. Top FUNNIEST episodes? "The Injury," and the one about the Bird Funeral. What's your favorite Office episode?
movies: finally saw Divergent! It was a great movie, honestly. I also watched The Spectacular Now and have many mixed feelings on it.
books: I'm doing the Summer Reading Mission at The Fangirl Initiative, and I'm only one book into the challenge with one month left. Oops? I need to get on it! I'm currently reading Cinder. Also, feel free to add me on Goodreads and join the Summer Reading Mission, too. #shamelessplug
