Progress Post: Deadlines?

I haven't really been pacing myself all too well in order to make my personal deadline, but I know that I will make the deadline. So, here's the rundown:

  • I have 49 pages left to type
  • I currently have a little over 54,000 words
  • It takes me about 2-4 hours to type 10 pages
  • I have 4 more character stories to unfold
  • I have 2 chapters to finish

I would consider my hand written notebooks my first draft. My typed version is my second draft. I am going to print a hard-copy once I am completed typing, then edit from there. All of this, and I still do not have a title I comfortable with.

I thought it was pretty cool the part of the book I am currently typing was written Jan 19, 2016 and I am just now typing it a year later. Yeah, I'm not very good with deadlines. How do you keep on track?

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month.

I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
