Progress Post: Complete

So, I finished my debut novel. I got excited for about 5 minutes. How did I celebrate? I promptly got on to book 2 in the trilogy. This isn't the first manuscript I have ever finished, and I guess I'm not thrilled because I still have so much more process to go until it is a complete package. I actually had about 7 written pages left of book 1, but something just said: stop.

Right now:

  • 162 pages
  • 71,375 words

In my regular world, I had a really rough day. I decided to take a day off from my 9-5(shouldn't have because I am the epitome of starving artist right now), but it was wasted because I got lost on the way to the interview. I had a total, blubbering like a little toddler melt down. I hate navigating public transportation from Queens to Nassau. This Southerner is still have issues adjusting to life in NYC . The fast paced rat race fills me with gloom and doom 😔

Instead of letting the frustration and anxiety get to me, as I usual do, I got to writing. I wrote all day as if it were my full time job. I LOVED IT! Of course I did. I actually got the novel done, and ready to go into editing phase. It was amazing. The whole time I'm thinking, "I love this! I could really get used to this."

Another good ending to an otherwise shitty day? I found the notebook for the sequel to my debut novel. Thanks to the guidance of my fiance.

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. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. 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…
