Goodbye April!

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” – William Shakespeare

Another month has passed! I can’t believe it. I was just talking with a friend the other day about how I wish we could slow down the Earth’s rotation so that we had more hours in the day. Not that doing so would cause any other problems. . .

My writing/editing is going slower than I would have liked. I will admit that I am putting it off a bit because the closer I get to being done with this round of edits, the closer I am to sending it off to an editor, and then closer I am to starting to get those rejection letters. I didn’t think I would be so nervous about this whole process, but I really am. Any writers who experience this same “fear of rejection procrastination”? D;

I guess my goal in May is to not succumb to this! But again, there really aren’t enough hours in the day. XD

Aside from writing, my partner and I leave for our Mediterranean cruise in 3 weeks, and I’m stoked. I can’t wait to bring back a lot of pictures, I’m starting to run out for Adventure Time Tuesday. Though that will impede my progress on the book, but it’s a vacation I need desperately.

I also recently had a major OCD moment and completely organized my jewelry. My moment of rage was caused by the amount of money charged for jewelry storage. *rage cleans*

I’ve been pushing myself to eat better, and it seems to be working. I’ve been mostly dairy free except for small falls, but nothing like before. Dairy is really the last weakness I have to break. But really, one thing gets fixed, and something else pops up. I had to go to the doctor last week because suddenly I’ve developed an allergy to some sort of terrible thing, but we don’t know what yet. It’s like a game show “What’s Your Allergy?!”

So, keeping my goals for March and April hasn’t been going great. BUT I have had more people interested in checking out the book. It’s scary to let it go though at this stage. But I think that maybe once I get through this last stage of edits, I will be able to let go and accept that it won’t go smoothly, but that things will in the end be awesome. :)

May promises to be busy, but I think it will also be awesome!
