      The fun part: TJ, Anna, and I went out for an early Valentine's Day lunch since I have to be on campus for work/class from 11:30 a.m. to 7/7:30 p.m. tomorrow. I got brisket tacos... and a bourbon.


      The "Whoops" part: TJ, Anna, and the cats are currently napping. I'm sipping a cappuccino and watching Sailor Moon on Hulu to try to sober up so that I can actually do work. (It was that or nap, and I hate naps.)

      How are things with you guys?

      * I'm 67 pages into editing another draft of my YA queer fairy tale (and I'm using edit notes from a publisher to do it!). 

      * I passed 40,000 words on my newest novel, the one with the cosplaying girls falling in love with each other. 

      * I'm having a lot of fun with my Instagram lately, posting books and some of my poems and stuff like that. It's been a huge de-stresser and a super low-stakes creative project. 

      * I've been teaching--we did "The Yellow Wallpaper" (Charlotte Perkins Gilman) yesterday and are doing "The Lesson" (Toni Cade Bambara) tomorrow.

      * I read We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Amichie (to take notes for my comp exams) and Bad Anatomy by Hannah Cohen today.

      * I also went to get some blood work done (testing to see if I'm still anemic like I was during pregnancy and postpartum).

      * I have my night class tomorrow. Wednesdays are my long days--I leave at 11:30 a.m. and don't get home until 7:30 p.m. because of teaching two classes and then taking my night class. Luckily I enjoy the class, the discussions, and the professor, so it could definitely be worse. I just wish I was less fibro-foggy by the time I got to class.

      * I'm super, super sad that The Good Place season 2 is over, but I am hyped for the new season of iZombie

      * I got TJ the first two seasons of iZombie, gloves, and the Darth Vader/Leia picture book for his birthday the other day.

      * I also went on a bit of an anxiety cleaning spree about an hour ago.


      And right this moment (well, the second I'm done writing this journal, I mean), I'm drinking coffee and running through what I need to do from my planner. Then I'm editing more of the one novel and writing (hopefully) 2,000 words of the other novel before bed tonight. So... wish me luck?

      What's your favorite ensemble? (Group of friends, group on a quest, etc. Books, TV, movies, games--pretty much anything is fair game.)


      Mine, of course, has to be the Scooby Gang from Buffy. Because... well, of course.

      Audrey

      What's the most bizarre thing that ever happened to you at a con and/or that you ever witnessed at a con?


      (Yes, I'm still writing my con/cosplayer novel. And yes, it makes me wonder weird questions like this A LOT.)

    • Frustration & Nostalgia

      1 month ago

      Audrey

      So I desperately need another cup of coffee to pep me up.

      1. I'm getting really frustrated with the whole trying to get published thing. I've been sending books to agents since I was 15. I've had one poetry book published, which I'm very proud of, and some lit mag publications. But I haven't gotten a novel published yet, and my lit mag submissions could be going better these days. It's immensely frustrating to me. Sometimes I truly contemplate just publishing a book through Amazon or something and seeing how that goes. But I dunno. It may just be the frustration talking. But I literally have whole novels that I still, years later, think are good and fun but they never got picked up. I usually write at least one novel per year, and feeling like I'm finally getting somewhere with publication only to end with rejection letters makes me feel totally awful.


      2. I wish that this site worked the way it used to. I miss coming on here several times a day, having comments on my journals, commenting on journals of others, even sneaking over to the forums every so often. I miss my friends. I follow people on Twitter and Instagram, of course, and I pop on here every so often. But I miss what it was. I'm working on the first draft of a novel right now that is about a girl who goes to a con in Austin (not RTX--it's a made-up con) and meets her internet friends (and realizes she's got a crush on one of them). I guess writing about it makes me think about when I joined the site five (good god--five?!) years ago and those couple of years afterwards and how formative all of that--and being friends with you guys--was to me as a person.


      I dunno. Not even sure if anyone is going to read this, but I didn't feel that throwing all of that up on Twitter or my writing blog, so here we are, I guess?

    • Might as well, yeah?

      Started the morning (post-Lucky Charms) by downloading student papers to grade later. Then I decided to work on my Shakespeare final paper outline and annotated bibliography, and somehow I ended up looking at baby clothes on Amazon.


      So that's where I am mentally at the moment.

      You were one of the first people to welcome me to the site but 4 years later, in college, and am still am unable to get into the community. The forums is nothing but a sea of random people. How do you get your voice heard in a crowd of people screaming? Would you be able to give me some guidance?

      Audrey! It's warm fuzzy time, so here it goes. Your sheer determination to power through your lists and not let it even seem daunting is something I find truly inspiring, and I wish I had even half the resolve that you do. It was so wonderfully fantastic to get to finally meet you at RTX, and I can't wait to see your lovely face again this year!

      You're awesome! I know we all need help some times. I'm trying my best at the moment to help others out, and you inspire me to do so. I'm having a hard time right now, because work hours are wonky, the work I'm doing was being pushed down, despite it's urgency, and I've been having a really hard time. I haven't picked up my guitar in a week and a half, and I woke up today angrier than I've been for a long long time, and that includes having been kicked in the face and not rising to it.

      So what I want to say is, I'm here for you. Shoot me a message and we can whine and bitch about stuff.

      I have no idea what song to even choose today for StL because to be honest, all I want to listen to is some super heavy metal, but that won't convey the correct message.

      You inspire me more than you know, and I hope that things turn around soon! I keep going because I know, for one weekend this year, that I will be incredibly happy because of the people around me, and it'll be a wonderful time, but in the mean time, stay positive and think happy things, and don't be tempted by the darkness.

      After seeing your tweet, I wanted to write something longer than a tweet, and then I kept writing. And probably shared more than I intended.

    I hadn't, actually! I'm very into the idea of Inkshares, though. I'll see where the book goes with the publisher and agent who each have a copy in for review at the moment, but for sure keeping this on my radar.
