In today’s episode of #thelateness, I give you Goodreads.
Bonne année my good readers. Oh my gosh, it’s been a year—with a very interesting last couple of months of 2018.
So where have I been lately?
Just checking in with you guys with another semi-life update.
I’m currently battling a cold—haven’t had one of those in a WHILE—so I’ve taken the liberty of staying in my room all weekend. This did me some good because though I’m still coughing up my spleen when the Mucinex wears off, I’m feeling loads better than I was on Friday.
I’m starting something new on here titled #thelateness. I’m dedicating anything I should have done, watched, etc. for the longest time that I’m just now doing to the hashtag.
“Oh, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd! She was a vixen when she went to school. And though she be but little, she is fierce.”– A Midsummer Night’s Dream
I was never too keen on Shakespeare, but there are moments when I fully understand what he was saying.
Since it’s July, I thought it was time to do a 6-monthish evaluation on my resolutions—really to gauge where I am, and if I need to do some adjusting.
It’s Monday– I need the energy. *dances*
So I’m sure many of you are caught up on the whole Universal Fancon fiasco, and yeah… it was a shitshow. I’d gotten the email along with the other Kickstarter backers around 1 P.M. Friday and had to break the news to my publisher (she was never notified). Thank God she hadn’t started to ship things out to the hotel or to me. My publisher was able to recoup the money she’d lost from her bank, but I don’t know if other vendors were able to do the same.
So now, we’ve got Anime North to look forward to! It’ll be my first trip to Toronto in many, many moons and I’ll have Memorial Day free to look around. So if you’ve got some suggestions on places I should check out, please hit me up and let me know.
I promise to get better with blogging this year. I’ve had so many real life events pop up that have deterred me concerning writing. But the year isn’t over yet and I’ve still got some writing goals to meet. I know it’s early but I’ve been thinking about NaNoWriMo—whether I plan to participate or not. It’ll depend on where I’m living. I’d planned to move this summer, but it may or may not be postponed until after this upcoming winter. So we’ll see—if I’m still in Baltimore and have time, I’ll do it. If I’m in the middle of another project (regardless of where I’m living), I’ll miss it this year.
Honestly in a way, I’m always doing NaNo, lol! Oh before I forget, I’ve found a podcast episode I’d forgotten I’d recorded. So as soon as I can edit it, I’ll post it. Good timing, as it’s an updated interview with Sharon, my publisher, while we were at a trade show and now, we’re about to head to another!
