Aaaaand I'm writing!

Sooo, I don't know if I discussed this in a previous post, but I have six days off in a row from work. If you don't know, one of my favorite events of the year is coming up, Yaa Halla Y'all. It's a big belly dance thing, and they have like workshops and shows and vendors. Originally I was going to take some workshops but I ended up deciding against it because I'm not actively dancing at the moment or even practicing and I'm already taking workshops in January at 3rd Coast Tribal.

Anyway, that's the long winded way of saying I'd already taken the days off in case I did workshops and I now have much time off. So I'm trying to finish a book. Or at least get a sizable portion of it done. I'd like my second sci-fi romance to come out before the end of the year if I can accomplish that. I couldn't be more far off. I currently have 6,679 words. But that is 2,319 more than I had this morning. All the new words feel like crap, but they usually do. At least they're editable crap.

I know I should be writing whether I have the days off and I've been doing some, but not a ton. I've been trying to work on the evil book that I still haven't finished. My plan was for it to be this year's second release but I think I have a better shot with the sci-fi book (which tells you how much me and the evil book argue). But the evil book (Bad Animals is its working title) WILL be released next year even if I have to kill all three of us to do it (that's right characters! If I go down, you're going with me!)

Anyway, wish me luck on getting as much of this book done as possible. I'm hoping for another thousand words sometime tonight. I kind of got started late today and am hoping to get a better jump on things tomorrow.

In other news: Even though I said I was going to keep doing beauty stuff on this blog I decided to put it somewhere else because I change my mind constantly. You'll be able to check it out under the Beauty & Skincare tab.
