So I’m swiping this from the talented Amanda McCormick’s blog tag as an excuse to give my wonderful readers a quick update! I know I’ve been rather MIA for a number of weeks now, and I sincerely apologize. Some days, I wonder if I’m really cut out for this blogging thing. So much to do, so little time! And I’m hardly procrastinating, either!
Anyways, here goes!
My new kittens! A friend at work showed me a picture of stray kittens underneath her deck, and of course, upon seeing three black kittens, I went over to her home the next day and we were able to snatch up not one, but three kittens. The black one was a keeper, and then the second one I caught just so happened to be a mini-clone of the cat I have now… So I kept two because kittens.
Not an official crazy cat lady yet.
I just began Steven Brust’s Yendi, book #2 of the Jhereg series. I wasn’t 100% crazy about the first book, but I’ve noticed this frustrating tendency of mine to leave a series unfinished more often than not. So being that there’s only 3 books in this series, and that the library just so happened to have a 3-in-1 book, why not?
I also just finished reading a book from the TOR eBook Club I just recently joined. If you enjoy sff, I highly recommend joining TOR’s eBook Club. It’s free, and they’ll send you a free eBook to download within a window of the first week of every month, and they even have a book discussion forum for the book of the month! I have yet to check that part of TOR out, but you know what? It’s awesome.
I’m watching my girls play Minecraft. I don’t watch TV shows… or any TV, for that matter. Except for an occasional 10 minutes of the Yankees when I go to my parent’s house every week. Was a rabid fan… now, I’ll pass on the sports.
My OST playlist on Pandora that consists of Square Enix and Skyrim. Nothing special. My creative juices are kind of in a lull right now and, consequently, so is my draw to music. So currently, I am not listening to anything at all..!
The edits. Would you believe that I am actually thinking about using Scrivener? Okay, so this will be the third (fourth?) time I’m attempting the program. I need to do some more research on their snapshot feature (any tips?) before transferring my hard copy changes onto the computer.
I completed the first round of edits for July’s CampNanowrimo (which wasn’t nearly as much progress as I was hoping to have made for nano) and I must transfer them back into the document, then prepare for the second round of edits.
So after the impending trial run with Scrivener, I will commence edit transfers.
…For a Leuchtturm notebook for my bullet journaling. But the self-imposing hardhead that I am, I will persevere with my $1.99 notebook until the very end.
Also wishing that I had more time for everything I’d like to be doing.
Making Me Happy
My kittens. My family. Good friends.
