What’s Up? (The Sky ... Ha ... Ha)

What’s Up? (The Sky ... Ha ... Ha)
Hey, everyone. I know it's been a while since you heard from me. I just wanted to write to you and explain why I've been so absent.

So, this year, my chronic pain has not been kind. There have been lots of ups and downs. I started a new headache medicine, but with that, there have been some side effects and adjustments. I've also been shifting some other medicine around, and because of that, my pain has worsened. My headaches have been lessened, but I've had a ton of overall body aches and I've just been feeling like crap, to put it oh-so-eloquently. Because of this, I've been mostly focusing on getting through each day and only doing what I absolutely have to.

This has all been in January and February (though probably all through the last few months of 2016 as well). So then, starting in March, I got a cold that lasted for a while, then went away for two days before I promptly got sick again. (Haha, that was nice.) That cold lasted for like, three weeks until my mom finally handed me a Claritin and said, "Here! Try this." So, I did. And it kind of helped, but I'm still dealing with some sickness, and I'm still dealing with the pain.

But, I missed blogging! So here I am. I'll be putting up at least one post in the next week or two, hopefully. I'll try to get back into the swing of things. Stay tuned. And keep your head up, lovelies. It's all going to be all right. ♥

How's life for you?

When I dressed up and took this photo and actually felt alive for the first time in weeks; I also did my best impression(s) of Ronald Weasley.

P. S. Don't hate me for the pun in the title. I kind of hate it a little bit too, but I had to.

Beautiful People: March Edition
Hello, writerlings! Another month, another edition of Beautiful People! (Is it just me, or is it wild that we're in March already?!) Here we are with more questions to help you get to know your characters--and this time the batch is a random assortment!

But first...

What is Beautiful People?
Beautiful People is a blog meme hosted by myself and the ever-awesome Cait @ Paper Fury. Every month, we post ten questions to help you get to know your characters better. They can be elusive and enigmatic, but we hope every question we post brings you closer to the answers about your wonderful beautiful people (your characters). 

How do I join?
Just jump in! Snag the questions, post them on your blog, and come back to add your link! I also recommend checking out the posts of the other participants. It's a great way to make new friends.

Please also give Cait and I a link back--whether through a regular link, or these shiny blog buttons:

And now for the questions!

  1. What’s their favorite book/movie/play/etc.?
  2. Is there anything they regret doing?
  3. If they were sick or wounded, who would take care of them and how?
  4. Is there an object they can’t bear to part with and why?
  5. What are 5 ways to win their heart (or friendship)?
  6. Describe a typical outfit for them from top to bottom.
  7. What’s their favorite type of weather?
  8. What’s the worst fight they’ve ever been in?
  9. What names or nicknames have they been called throughout their life?
  10. What makes their heart feel alive?

How's your month going? How's your writing? Tell me all!
