Hello Again, Dear Blog's been a while since I've blogged. No real excuse for why I haven't. Okay, so I have excuses but I'm not going to torture you with those;) Anyway, here's a quick rundown of what's been happening to me in the writing department.

 I'm finally back to editing again. I finished the first draft at the beginning of February and I was all sorts of happy.

Then I promptly entered a contest. 

I know, stupid move, but I did it. And nothing happened. I should have expected that, but still it was a bit heartbreaking.

From the stupid contest entry move, I realized I hated something about my book and decided to change a subplot. No big deal, right? Ha! 

The whole ripping out a subplot thing was...overwhelming. So overwhelming that I thought of shelving the book. Plus, real life stuff happened. Anyway, I ended up not even looking at the WiP for almost three months.

So now that I've had some distance from the WiP, I've found that I can actually look at it again without feeling like it needs to be burned. Now I'm not gonna lie. Chapter 1 was  BEAST to work on. But I've missed the story too much to ignore it any more. 

Now I can write ALL THE THINGS again! :D

What's been going on in your life since I fell off the face of the blogging world? I've missed being here!
