So, what has your ole Kittie Kat been doing for a the past couple months? I have been actually pretty busy. And sometimes so upset that I couldn’t do anything at all. It’s just been a real rollercoaster of a ride already in 2017.
I’ve been writing. I’m hoping… Scratch that. I will be completing my first draft of my novel by the end of next month. Writing has been a great experience for me. I have always wanted to publish a book since I was in 3rd grade. And here I am about to finish my first draft of my first ever novel in a little over a month. I’m just so excited. 8 year-old me would be so proud.
It has been really hard. I had this vision of what I wanted to write about but it evolved into something more. I loved that it evolved into something that might help a reader. I hope the readers will connect with the characters and find strength and courage at times when they feel they don’t have it. This is why I wanted to be a writer. I’m hoping to help people gain a different perspective. But it was hard to come up with new material. I didn’t have enough but I’ve been doing pretty well at it. I’ve reached over 50k words and it only took me 2 months after NaNoWriMo. Ha!
I’m also preparing for my Honey Bee’s arrival to the States in almost a month!! EEEE!! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to show her around the Midwest. Although, how am I going to top New Zealand?? Plus it will still technically winter. Winter in the Midwest vs. New Zealand any day of the year. Yikes!
I do have lots of fun things planned for us and the girls. I can’t wait to show her the places where I have childhood memories. I can’t wait to take her up to Wisconsin to meet my crew up there. I also have things planned that I’ve never been to or done. So, that’s exciting as well. I, unfortunately, won’t be able to take the whole two week off. That’s going to be weird to go to work while she’s at home. Those days are going to be the longest days ever! AAAAHH!!!
Of course, the new US Administration has me straight up buggin’. I am now at the point where I don’t even care. I don’t care what that stupid head tweets. I don’t care that they are defending the fact that numbers at the inauguration where the most ever. What I do care about is Americans. I care about human beings. That’s where my energy is going to go towards.
I’ve actually stopped logging into Facebook unless someone close to me mentions me in a comment. I’ve even stopped going on Twitter. I’m exhausted from it all. It’s going to be an exhausting 4 – 8 years for us. I’m leaning towards 8 because he’ll never get rid of the electoral college in favor of the popular vote while he’s in office. He’s still arguing that Hillary only won the popular vote because of millions of fraudulent votes. UGH! I’m wasting my time aren’t I? After I said I wouldn’t.
Also, I either had the stomach flu or food poisoning this week. Either way, there was a lot of violent vomiting that made my torso muscles sore even days afterwards. Still feeling it now.
But, yeah. That’s what I’ve been doing. Writing. Reading. Breathing. Vomiting.
What have you been doing?
