"I'm so behind."
That is my statement for 2013. Or maybe my statement for 2013 should be, "My life keeps falling apart week by week, but damn it, I'm doin what I do, and what I do is cute." What do I know? I know that I want to scream at the top of my lungs. I can't share why that is on here, I just can't, but I really need She-Ra. Or the power of Grayskull. Or something. Maybe a margarita? I don't drink so that is pointless. Damn it.
So last Friday I submitted my short-short story for the writing contest. I had my brother and mom help me spruce it up, I needed an extra pair of eyes. I think my finished product was fun. It was a little thing I wrote years ago, but I updated it and now I hope it at least makes somewhat of a decent rank. I am not sure if I can post what I sent in yet or not as per the rules, but once I know anything I will post it on here for you all to read. (For those interested.)
Let's see. What else? I've got so much going on right now. I have so many stories and things that I am writing that I just want to share it with you all. I want to just give it all away, but I can't. No one will want to continue reading, right?
I've been enjoying my time with writing official content for Retro-Daze.org. I love the forum that is a part of the site. It is fun and everyone seems to be very nice. You should all go visit it! Hopefully I can also get a special review up on Broadway Jem for NERDSociety. That exclusive doll looks amazing.
I also was contacted by someone that I sold a short story to over the summer, and they are going to be contacting me for more work! (If I understood the email correctly.) I have so many coals in the fire that I hope I'll be staying warm this winter. But then I remember I live in an area that maybe has half a day of winter a year, so I'll be fine. If anything, I'll smell and look good from all the cosmetics and fragrances I keep selling. (On a total side note, I have really perfected making up my face. I don't usually wear a lot of make up, but working in a department store I have to look like I know what I'm selling, so I've got Bette Davis eyes all day long!)
I also have my fingers crossed for another project I am hoping to join in on. This publishing company is trying to put together a collection of humorous stories regarding how each state in the U.S. would handle an apocalypse. My goodness I feel like that is pure fun! In the words of Marina and the Diamonds, "I'm obsessed with the mess that is America."
Anyways, I just wanted to check in and see how you are all doing. I've got some fun stuff I will be posting this week, it won't be all my personal ramblings. Hope you are all doing well and having a great week! Take care everybody.
