You may have noticed a slight difference this week in my blog. Yes, I am moving to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. Weekend post will still happen because I’m compelled to tell you about my boring life on Saturdays and my nerdy side needs it’s Sunday outlet. Coming tomorrow, a book review of Harry Potter Book 2 (here’s a hint, it didn’t suck).
I should probably stop mentioning how behind I am on comments and all the other stuff. All you need to know is that I’m getting close to a life balance.
In other news, someone needs to create a store for blogging merchandise. I could really use a shirt that says “BLOG: The New 4-Letter Word”
Two weekends from now, I’ll be going to the Final Fantasy VI 20th Anniversary Distant Worlds concert and I fully expect to witness The Opera again. This piece is one of the greatest in Final Fantasy history, if you ask me. Who am I kidding, FFVI is a masterpiece. I like watching the performance of the concert because the Distant Worlds CD doesn’t include the narration.
Being an adult sucks because I’m busy as hell. Also, I need to start looking for a new car….
Also, I’ve been thinking about buying a house. How much does a person have to put down on something like that? I doubt I’ll be able to buy a house soon, but I should probably consider how much I’ll need to save for a down payment. Paying 1000+ dollars for rent seems crazy. That’s not what I pay now, but if the boyfriend and I move in together, any place we find is likely to cost that much. I don’t even know where to start
I just keep this section here to remind myself that I really should be working out. As soon as I get my writing schedule nailed down, fitness is next #priorities.
I like to mess with social media when I work on my book. Monday, I admitted on Twitter that I’ll have to change the tense of what I am currently writing. As it is, it’s in first person and in past tense. What was I thinking when I first started?
The worst thing about the first draft of my first book... I'm going to have to change the tense, & maybe the point of view #writerproblems—

Events should be happening as the reader reads. I’m holding out hope it won’t be that huge of a change, especially since I’m not at a typing stage, yet (for those who don’t know, I’m writing this out by hand first because I’m more inspired that way. Yes, I know I’m crazy)
Richelle Mead inspired me last week. I’ve always felt like we have similar writing styles. I’ve heard her say before she always wanted to write books but never had the discipline until her late 20s. She said Thursday she also found she had to plan out her books before writing them so as not to get stuck. it’s hard, but it’s what I’m doing. I had good success Monday, writing summaries for chapters seven through 12. I estimate the finished product will have 14 – 16 chapters.
It also helped that I took Tuesday and Thursday off of blogging. I was able to write without worrying about how I was going to write my next blog post and relax. I hope this isn’t too much of a burden. I really want my blog to be awesome. When I become a big shot author, I’ll make sure my blog benefits ^_^.
