Don't forget to check out my giveaway!
I was inspired by 1000th.monkey to do an update on just my life (and goals, I suppose).
My husband and I are gearing up for our Honeymoon! On April 21st, I know it is still awhile away, we will be leaving for a bit. Destination: Hawaii. I’m pretty excited about it. Neither my husband or I have ever been, and it is about time that we go on a proper vacation. We’ve saved for so long (we got married in July last year), just so that we could take this trip without worry about going into debt.
And it’s finally right around the corner!
In the meantime, we both really want to fix up our yard. We came to the conclusion that we can’t purchase chickens… And I wanted to own my own chickens – so much! But you have to have their coop 20’ away from your own house AND 35’ away from the neighbors. While I don’t think anyone would report us, we still don’t have enough proper room for them. Maybe someday, when we get a bigger yard…
We finally sat down and did our taxes – yay refund! Which is awesome since we’ll be able to fix the car and get new tires.
I got a new job. I’m now working as a Communications Editor. It is actually the perfect position for me. It is enough creative work that makes my mind move every day, and enough logical work that I am focused. I actually am in love with this position. And something additional amazing? My cohort at Adorning Schemes also got a position at the same company, different department!
In other news, we are planning a trip down to San Diego to visit a good friend and finally see the city. I’ve never been to any other major city in California, so I’m really excited to go urban-exploring. Also, we’re trying to plan a mini-vacation for my birthday (the 25th! It's my "golden birthday"). We are thinking of just spending one night cozy-ed away in a hotel and seeing Charlie Brown Farms the next day (which is ridiculously kitschy, but should be really fun).
As far as writerly things go, I posted a recent update on that as
well, but here's another one. Rioss passed the 50k mark. I’ve made a plan for myself, which
seems easy enough. Once Rioss is done (compliments to WIP500 for
helping me through this), I will edit at least a chapter a day of Ruhe,
then Soul Therapy, then come back to Rioss. I’ll find beta readers for
Ruhe, and then secondary readers as well. Same goes for Soul Therapy.
If anyone wants to volunteer. I’m not looking for you
to “rate” my writing – but I am looking for honest and critical
feedback. They are all YA stories, so if you aren’t interested in YA,
you probably shouldn’t volunteer ;)
I know what 1000th.monkey is up to, but what about the rest of you? It is actually rare that I see updates from the blogs that I follow – and I’m curious to see how everyone else is doing.
