It has been a while since I blogged, and so much has happened in my life that writing took a back seat. I ended another relationship because it wasn’t working out for me at all. I was torn up about it at first, but I’m better since it was getting in the way of everything. I wasn’t writing, and when my grades started falling because of it since the stress was getting to me I had to let go. It was hard but it taught me what I really need in a relationship. Break ups teach you what you don’t want in a partner, and it can be helpful for story writing too. That is definitely one for the books. I mean really the whole summer was crazy enough as it is since one of the exes was trying to cause drama in my life since he wouldn’t let go. It’s sad really because things were going good till I realized how wrong they were for me. You never really get over it though, and it will get better as time goes on. I have been writing scenes and notes on the stories though even if I didn’t get any good work done. Everything I need it together, and I’m not changing my availability for it either. I’ll have more time to work on my stories during the summer, and I did get my first royalty check in September. I’ll be working on it more and the first ebook I am going to publish is The Killer Contract Agency. I will also try to get out another poem ebook and turn it into a paperback so it’s all a matter of time. Classes could be better, but I have time to make it up.
Until next time,

It’s been weeks since I’ve blogged because I’ve had a few things throw me off besides the usual school and work stuff. I’ve been back in school, and I dropped my Fashion Writing class because I only want the classes required for my degree and it was two very different writing styles. I made the right decision since I’m learning so much about journalism. It’s harder then I thought, but I like challenges. I have a Disney trip coming up in March and there will be pictures and a blog post about it. I finished the first Scarlet book, and its only a rough draft. I’m halfway through the second and a few pages into the third. I’m waiting for the last beta reader to get done with The Killer Contract Agency rewrite. It been a long journey, but I hope to just say screw it and write it all out since that is what rewriting and beta readers are for. I even threw around some pieces of the second retail novel too. The reason why I have worked harder on the novels is because someone tried to rattle me again. Someone from my past can’t let go of me, and tried to rock the boat. I ignored it because I don’t have time to play games like these anymore. I’m getting to the point where drama is just a waste of time. I’ve moved on with someone else, and he is going to be moving in come April. I have to get to work on the house, and get it ready in between school work and writing. I love the fact that I work and go to school part time. It’s easier and just for this semester. I never realized how much drama can ruin your day till now, and it’s stupid since all it does is throw you off. I do plan on upping the writing word count more, and the more ebooks I publish the more I have a shot at writing full time. I want that to be one of my long term goals. I’ll also publish more on the blog, and even put up excerpts and maybe even playlists.
Until next time,
