I feel like I haven’t spoken to you all in a while, so for today’s post I wanted to update you all on the happenings of my recently event filled life-outside-of-blogging.
It has been a very eventful few weeks this past month and a half, though I’ve managed to post fairly frequently and I am proud to say that I have completed yet another Back To School Series on my blog. It happened during the craziest uni semester and I did it! *pats self on the back*
In all my proud self-satisfaction, here is a photo of me looking a wee bit excited (and a little awkward) at a book lunch a few weeks ago.
Friday 9th February was the last day of what I think had to have been the most stressful semester of uni yet! I only did 2 units, but confining 12 weeks of work into 6 weeks is absolutely nuts and I am still submitting assignments even after semesters end.
I’m ecstatic to have made it through the semester, though it seems I never stop since now I’m working full time until Semester 1 starts in 2 weeks. Yay for money!
I really wish to write 4,500 words of my book this month, and I really hope I can do it. I currently have 4,176 words spanning 13 pages; in which I have chosen to write the novel chapter by chapter without an outline, though I keep a writing journal for any stray ideas.
I want so badly to have that feeling of complete and pure satisfaction where I can print out my manuscript and hold it in my hands and just cry. Cry because I will have managed to finish my book. That is a while off but I think about that day to come all the time.
My boyfriend has been recently helping me with ways to develop and characterise the people in my book, as it is in his interest too which I was amazed to hear as he has no interest in books whatsoever.
Considering today is Valentines day, here is a little V/Day poem relating to my book.
Roses are Red,
The People are Blue,
The World is Upside-down,
And so are You.
I am currently obsessed with Kat (StarsandEmbers) Aussie Shadowhunter short film style YouTube videos. She has only made two so far but they’re so original and creative I am in love. You can follow her on Instagram @Stars.and.Embers .
Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!
Thank You so much for reading! I hope to see you all back here on Saturday 🙂
