I don’t even have to say it, do I?
It’s been one hell of a year so far and uh… anything resembling normal has gone straight out the window.
But some updates are in order, I guess.
In January, I started a new job–outside of retail. A proper office job and everything. I miss the library more with every day, but this one at least gets the bills paid and puts food on our table. And, thankfully, it’s allowed me to work from home during this pandemic. I’m incredibly lucky to have secured this new job when I did.
Writing has been chugging along slowly; sometimes I manage to get some writing done, but other days, I’m just in Pandemic Response Mode (read: nap time). I finished a draft of the YA Fantasy I’ve been working on for a long time. It’s the first full draft of this new concept for it and it’s so radically different from what it was 12 drafts ago.
I’m also working on some revisions on some manuscripts I shelved a while ago. A YA werewolf story (that was 100% revitalized because of Vampires coming back thanks to Midnight Sun) that I’m thinking of turning into a MG, and my YA Siren Pirate Lesbians fantasy I’ve loved and want to come back to.
It’s finally starting to get nice around here. It’s been a cold May so far, but as of writing this blog post, it’s 70 degrees and it almost makes me want to go out for a run.
