Progress Post: Edit No. 3

So, on January 24, 2017 I finished book 1 of my Zombie trilogy. I just finished my 3rd edit, and I would like to do a 4th edit before I send it off to a professional editor. I am currently at 70,635 words for book 1, and I would like to cut more unnecessary things out. I have finally realized that getting your idea out is only half the battle.

Writing is honestly RE-writing!

Everything is going good with me taking my writing more seriously. I made a list of projects I am currently working on, what I need to finish, and ideas I need to start. I have a list of 19 projects!

I don't set deadlines because I don't like the pressure. This is honestly the reason why I have not released anything just because I know how I work, and it would/could be FOREVER before I would release another novel.

That is changing. I make myself write everyday, if not every other day, and I am seeing progress. I aim to finish Chapter 6 on book 2. I will have a Playlist coming next for you guys. I don't/can't listen to music while I write, only when I am editing. Do you listen to music when you write?

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…
