Happy Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! If you remember last week’s post, I’m happy to say that Boudin’s belly has finally calmed down. His official diagnosis was “Stress Colitis”. He was stressed out because of how stressed out I was, and then he started exploding all over the living room and waking me up every two hours, which stressed me out more, which stressed him out more. It was a vicious cycle of stress pooping that we just couldn’t break. Thank goodness that week is over 😉
This week is much calmer, both at home and at the dayjob. In fact, while I made a goal to edit two chapters a day this week, I ended up editing EIGHT chapters on Tuesday! And then I figured out a way to fix three weak areas with one tiny change! And then I decided to completely rewrite the first scene in Chapter 4, because that’s how my brain rolls 😛 I also bought The Emotion Thesaurus, because my characters “shrug” and “smile” and “frown” WAAAAAY too much.
Writing is hard, guys.
This weekend I read THE ASSASSIN’S BLADE, and the ending was so depressing that I started re-reading THRONE OF GLASS to remember that things get better. I mean, they get worse first, but then they get sort of better. The series isn’t finished yet, so I’m not sure how much better things will get, but at least there’s Chaol 😉 I seriously wish they’d make this series into a movie, mostly so I can see the fabulous dresses Celaena wears.
Tomorrow is the last of Ocean’s Story, so make sure you return for that. And I have another merpony for you this weekend!
And last, but not least, it’s my little sister’s 30th birthday today. Happy Birthday, Mo!
