(updated 5/29 I’m a bit under the weather, so this post is going to count as my wrap-up. I’ll be back on Saturday though! <3)
Just because I’m dead tired this week and have never done a post like this but have always wanted to…. I give you a snippet of my life 😉
Too. Many. Words. xD I started rewriting Found several weeks ago, armed with a hefty outline. I thought that outline was going to be a fantastic guide that would help me overcome my problem of writing too many words per scene (seriously. that’s a real problem. my wordcounts are waaaay too high. I just start a scene and ramble). Unfortunately, I just kinda…. went over it. The first quarter of my book is 40,000 words (*.*)/
I’m going to try and cut that when I get to editing xP
BLADES OF ACKTAR IS EPIC, OKAY???? Go read it. I’m on the last one (I devoured the other ones earlier in May), and Martyn is awesome. I find him incredibly funny and then that PLOT TWIST at 60% *dies* Go read it.
Excited. The fourth rewriting of my novel is going REALLY WELL and the other day I just wanted to shriek happily when my plot twist worked epicly.
Like there’s not enough time in every day. There’s so many things I want to do, so many things I feel like I have to do, but the clock just keeps ticking and time is going by fast. Years, especially. I mean, I’m driving?!? School = *explosion* Life = craziness. And it’s recently occurred to me how young I am yet how grown up I’m already considered by society.
That thought-provoking enough? Good.
Ahh… food? I know some people have a really elaborate answer here, but I don’t eat elaborate foods or anything XP Water. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 😉
LOOKING FORWARD TO
SUMMER!!!!!!!!!! I’m spending it back at my old house, up in the mountains. I know I give you all pictures of sand and seashells on Instagram, but I’m an outdoorsy mountain girl at heart xD And Realm Makers. Need I say more?
In this exact moment — Shepherd (Live) by Bethel Music and Amanda Cook. More consistently — epic movie scores that go along with my novel, namely from Skyrim (which is epic), Mass Effect, and music from Two Steps from Hell (ughhh I really don’t like their title).
Sending the first ten pages of my novel off for a professional critique. DON’T GET ME WRONG. I’m really, really excited to get feedback. I just… don’t like the anticipation, okay? xD
Editor and cover designer. I’m a major pre-planning person, so that’s basically the main confusing thing on my mind these days. Mostly because #moneyproblems. That’s why I’m searching like six months in advance from when I’d need them. If you’ve got any recommendations, I’d love to hear!
A social media maker. YESSS. I’ve been wanting to redo my brand since *forever* and am slowly picking away it. I have colors, a header design decided upon… I just don’t have a tagline (I wanted to elaborate the Journey of an aspiring indie author thing.) I’m hoping to get it done before the end of the summer, but yeah. Lots of fun(ish) designing stuff.
Life? It’s gorgeous out, and one of my favorite songs, (10,000 reasons), is blasting in my headphones right now. I’ve got about 10,000 reasons to thank God that I’m here and not where I was last year. Seeing how far He’s taken me from then gives me warm fuzzies and other #feels.
So there is your peek into Audrey Caylin’s life xD
So…what’s up “currently” with you? Any elaborate foods I should try? If you’re a baker, TELL ME.
