still #ameditng

Sorry for the lack of updates on here😓. I'm still editing and the process has been slow, unfortunately.  I got a new computer with Microsoft word and started a new job so I'm busy and it's hectic. 

January has been a tough month so far but things are starting to become better.  I'm a little overwhelmed with balancing this new job, which I start at 6am, and editing.  Not to mention I try to exercise daily.  As of today I'm on chapter 13, yes only 13 of 30, but I feel once I finish chapter 15 the rest will be much easier simply because those later chapters are written better then the earlier ones. 

Hopefully it'll be easier. 

No matter what I'm finishing this book by April 29th (my b-day) even if it means taking desperate measures (like turning off the internet).  I don't think I can stand to have this book unfinished for another year, I've been working on this thing (on/off) since 2010, nearly a decade.  Not to mention I still have to query and find an agent.  It's a long process.  I remember my best friend telling me she would've given up a long time ago but I can't.  

My book deserves to be read and it will.

Deleted video & some updates!

If you follow my YouTube you probably saw that I uploaded a video for all of a few hours then it disappeared.  I did that on purpose, after uploading the video I realized I didn't like the quality so I deleted it.  It was only a writing update but now I'm in the middle of making a vlog and hopefully will have that uploaded by Wednesday or Thursday.  (I won't delete this one!)  Editing is going well and I feel like I'm finally getting out of this funk.  I also got a job!  It's only part time but it's better than nothing so I'm grateful about it.  I listened to Kristen Martin's entire podcast "That Smart Hustle" and it's inspired me so much I can't stop thinking about it.  

I've realized how much I've allowed fear to control my life and I'm tired of it.  Recently I've been approached to make a HUGE life changing decision, I haven't decided on it yet but I'm not going to let fear stop me from taking this opportunity.  Life is short and I'm realizing every minute is precious.
