100 Days - I Can Explain

pug-1209129_1920 I know, I know. It's been quiet around here lately. I could tell you all about the successes I've had but just didn't blog about. Or about all my good intentions. But the truth is, if I were in any kind of shape, I wouldn't need to bribe myself with a 100 day challenge that says fitness, but is mostly about the writing, would I?

So no, dear reader, I have not been working my little butt off while neglecting my blog. I've been writing a lot. And watching a fair bit of basketball. And writing some more. And gushing about fictional queer cartoon figure skaters. In short, here's a list:

  • I wrote a short story! One Night Stand functions as a prequel to my novel, The Pick Up. Is it really a prequel if it's more likely that One Night Stand will see the published light of day before The Pick Up? Whatever. I wrote it second, it's a prequel. If George Lucas can screw with timelines and release dates, so can I!
  • 3ecfb2e6bf12c8941f436552b6b1b5131481068207_fullI got myself addicted to Yuri On Ice. I'm going to gush more about YOI later this week, but let's just say that it's the queer anime figure skating outlet I didn't know I needed. You should try it too. Only two more episodes left before we all collectively lose our minds!
  • I'm plotting a new novel! Fallen (working title) is me dipping my toe into paranormal romance. I don't have a lot more to say about that, because it's literally just a bunch of unformatted bullet point notes in Scrivener right now, and I'm already pretty sure the first draft is going to be an inflated monster that will require months of heavy editing, but hey, if it sees the light of day, it's going to be epic.

So there you have it. Nary a work out to be had! I did do yoga last night and tonight, as I started to feel guilty for not blogging recently. I didn't want to come back empty handed. Hopefully your goals and resolutions have gone better than mine! The good news is, I've got three full time working days left in 2016, and after that it's just going to be writing and walking until my little heart bursts!

Here’s an apology haiku.

Not much working out Too many triple axels None of them are mine
