I wanted to pop on here to share an update and some news about the podcast. First, a couple of weeks ago I had flown out to Los Angeles for a job interview at a production company. The interview went very well, but I wasn’t offered the job in the end.
I was recently asked how do I manage to keep all my ideas organized. There are times I don’t feel they’re very organized—they can be a bit jumbled. But it’s helped me to write almost everything down so it can be organized later.
So in the middle of doing 10 different things at once, I’d come across this entry from Chuck Wendig that I’d like to share with you guys. It’s a subject I was going to write about, but I think he drives the point home harder than I could. So enjoy!

Recently, I’d had the pleasure of interviewing Sharon Barela, owner and publisher of Yaoi Revolution. We had some time after a busy day of panels at Ahn!Con to discuss running a small business, the troupes of boy-love and I learnt that “seagulling” is a thing.

Hey everyone, it’s New Year’s Eve!
2014 has been a great year for me, personally and professionally. I’ve expanded my brand and businesses, met many acting and writing goals, and have formed some cool friendships through social media and my travels.
It’s been an awesome ride, and I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for me, and you guys. I’ll be spending the celebration with family at home. Wherever you’ll be, celebrate safely and I’ll catch you in the new year!
Merry Christmas everyone!
I’m taking a break from cleaning and gift-wrapping to wish you guys a happy holiday. Have safe travels and I hope you guys get everything you’d wished for.
So November is over, and December is here! Man—where did the time go?! I can’t believe that this year is almost over. Seriously, where did the time go?
This means that another NaNoWriMo challenge is wrapped up. Despite some roadblocks, I was able to meet my goal of 50,000 words. Yay!
In the middle of the challenge, I’d started to get stuck in my plot. So I took the time to write out the plot points, characters and traits on slips of paper and arranged them in different ways. Physically seeing the story allowed me to move the parts in the areas I thought they’d serve best. And then the words started flowing again! It’s a little easier to write when you know what your story is about.
So what will December bring for this story? Lots of editing, reshaping, and rewriting, which I really look forward to. For those who participated, what did NaNoWriMo bring you? Did you complete your word count goal? And what’s next?
For those who didn’t do the challenge, what are you working on this month?
This is one of my favorite holidays, as I get to spend it with family, friends and great food. Seriously, I love my grandmother’s cooking. I could only hope to be able to make it when I’m on my own.
I just want to say how thankful I am for all the above mentioned, and you guys! Seriously, I really appreciate every visit, read and comment that I get here and/or on social media. I love the conversations we get into.
Also, I want to give a special thank you to my Brasilian readers! America is 1st but Brasil is 2nd in viewership and I couldn’t be more appreciative!
So I just want to say, “Obrigado por todo o carinho. Eu fico muito feliz!” (I’d gotten help with the translation so please let me know if I didn’t say it right.)
Today I had the chance to chat with Thunder E, founder of Booredatwork. Fresh off a business trip, we talked about his favorites to review, the joys and pain of running a small business and about how I need to see Interstellar in IMAX.

14,600 words. I’m still catching up from a non-writing weekend– had some traveling to do and an audition. Still plugging away and the day’s not over yet. My goal for today is 3,000 words. I’ll be on twitter later to report how many words I’d written today. What was your writing goal today?
