This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

A Hard Day’s Bite update.

So, as a writer.. I’ve been slacking. Thank goodness I don’t yet do this professionally, as I would be well behind deadline etc.

The reason for lack of updates about the novel is because there hasn’t been anything to update.

Due to work, work, and work… with a smidge of a life thrown in, I haven’t had much chance to write.

I’ve been coming home brain dead and basically unable to do anything.

Also, I’ve been doing a 8 books in 8 weeks thing, and so if I’m home and awake, I’ve been reading.
I took one night off from reading so that I could work on a new kind of knitting stitch. Which lets just say once I figured out allllll the details, it went smoothly. Prior to that.. noo.. it was not going so well.

Well, I’m less than 100 pages away from being done with my 8N8 event, so i can go back to reading at my normal speed.

The only thing I’ve accomplished recently is I did in fact type up many of the pages I was lacking in digital format.
I need to once over my notebook and make sure I remove any pages I’ve typed up, and type up the ones I haven’t.

Even with the lack of moving forward, I still feel there is progress. My brain is still constantly seeing the scenes, and on the drive into work, I realized I need to start writing down one of the important scenes. This is my next goal. write out that scene, and I’ll feel accomplished.

Now, I haven’t sent my pages off to anyone as of yet, because I still haven’t finished chapter 5. Yes, I know.. I’ve been working on that chapter for far too long now.
But the truth is.. I haven’t touched that chapter.
Maybe I just need to steal the laptop upstairs with me one night, lock myself in my bedroom, put on some of my inspiration music and just attack that chapter. Then I will send it off to James for first edit.

-Yes James, incase you were thinking I wasn’t going to have you as my editor, thats not true. I just haven’t had anything to say to you, even after I got over hurt feelings time.

Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow. I’m finally back to my normal schedule at work, I’m no longer working 12 hour days (hence the not being able to write when I get home and being brain dead), so tomorrow I’ll be getting off of work at Noon. woohoo.

Reading update:
Bed Book: 100 pages away from being done with A Breath of Snow and Ashes
Couch Book: Less than 100 pages away from being done with Key Lime Pie Murder

I already have Carrot Cake Murder and Candy Cane Murder waiting for me at home, but I’ll no longer be in a rush. I also need to hunker down and read the Hellblaser GN I have at home, as it’s just gathering dust and needs to go back to the library soon.

Well, I’m avoiding work. I really shouldn’t do that. We finally got caught up after a week of nightmarish work. So… look at me go.. this is me going back to work…

hmm I might have to check Ravelry one more time…

    It’s alright. Totally understand that. And trying to force something said when you really don’t have anything to say isn’t good for anyone. But seriously, sounds like you’re making progress and treating the muse well. I’m glad to hear that the ideas are flowing and that you’re getting them out. Looking forward to the next installment.Good luck with the stitches and also looking forward to your review of Snow and Ashes.
