Progress Post: Edit Complete

  • 69,255 words

I am pretty confident with the work that I have. I am working now, making more money than before. I will be sending my manuscript to an affordable professional editor is 2-3 weeks when I get my first paycheck!

I am both excited and nervous. I am anxious to finally get my work out. I will be resuming my work on book 2 of the trilogy. I would like to finish reading it out loud to my fiance, because I am sure I will find other little things I want to change.

I was wondering if I needed to change the location. I both used common names from the Jamaica Queens area, but the city it takes place is completely fictional. Can I do that? I am writer, I can do whatever I please, but I would also like to be accurate.

 Next step? Editor and then getting an e-book cover design and then I will do an official release! Fingers crossed.

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…
