Oh hello. Remember when I actually used to post things on this site other than that damn book I'm writing? I kind of do. For those of you who are not reading the book (because reading novels online doesn't interest you, this particular novel does not interest you or you are not a Myspace friend of mine and therefore are not able to read the magic* my brain is spewing out), I apologize for the lack of posts! Interesting posts! Posts with my typical ramblings and random tangents that are only entertaining to me and my mother and . . . well that probably covers it.

I did have a blog writing set back a few months ago - one which I have not talked about with pretty much anyone because it most likely was a mixture of my own personal ishes and paranoia, and I am still standing firm on that. Where once, having a mediocre, somewhat popular blog would have been excellent and what I wanted, now I am trying to focus my time, energy and creativity elsewhere. Namely: the book and hair.

The job has gone from being "eh" to "okay" to fantastic. I love it. Even on my days off, I find myself going by to say hello to my co-workers because I live like five minutes away and I miss them. Had you told me two months ago that it would be this way, I wouldn't have believed you. But it is and I am and yea! Who knew a job could be like this?

Certainly not me.

I still hate waking up in the morning. That will never change. But then, I was the girl who hit the snooze button on her own wedding day, so I doubt anything will ever change that.

What is super exciting is that I am finally reaching a point where clients I serviced in the first month are coming back to me and friends and clients from when I was in school are calling up to make an appointment. I know building a clientele that will actually keep me busy and making more than my hourly wage and meager tips is still a ways away, but that time is getting closer. I can feel it.

Mike's bugging me to go work on the book. For those who are curious, while I have posted just shy of half the book, know that I have about 2/3rds of it written, the rest of it plotted out and am already kicking ideas around for the sequel. And I really want to thank my friends and family who are taking the time to read it. I can't tell if it's any good because it's all so close to me. But keep commenting on things you like, don't like, don't understand or want more of. And remember I am posting the first completed draft. Changes can still always be made.

* When I say magic, imagine that with a sarcastic tone. I have faith in myself and my writing skills but in no way do I believe I am the second coming of any renowned author worth mentioning.

  1. So nice to have an update. I just don't have time to get on Myspace anymore, so I haven't no clue what your up to. Glad to hear the new job is fantastic!
