I found a blog post over on Katyupperman’s blog, and I found that it was something that I really wanted to do! It’s a thing called Currently – it informs people of what you’re currently up to… and I thought that it was time that I got back into doing this!
The weather. It’s California, so it’s not super cold… but it’s really lovely. There’s clouds, and the sun isn’t out… and it’s chilly so I can have my blanket. Being super wrapped in a blanket or rainy weather is my go-to for when I love to write the most.
To my shame, I’m not reading anything. I’m actually going to change that, because I also want to get back into the habit of having a weekly book update/thoughts. So… I’ll be getting back into that, and hopefully next Wednesday there will be more to read in this section.
I was watching a ton of Hell’s Kitchen last night, but other than that… I was trying to get into the Walking Dead? I don’t know, I’ve been really tired a lot lately, so I haven’t been watching TV as much as usual. If you have any good recs for shows on Netflix or Hulu, let me know. I’d love to have a new series to jump into.
Zayde Wolf. I’ve been listening to a lot of Zayde Wolfe lately, and I’ve really been enjoying it. Especially his album Rare Breed. I would super suggest checking it out, if you haven’t heard of him yet.
Too many things to list on here. I’ve mentioned it before, but there’s been a lot of stuff going on that I can’t quite talk about yet. That’s the thing that I’m thinking about the most… and it’s been really taking up a lot of my thoughts. However, other than that, I’ve really been thinking about how much I want to get back into daily writing. I’m trying to decide what novel project I want to work on, and I’m trying to get back into the swing of my proper daily blogs. It’s been a little bit of an adventure, and as always I’m going up and down. But I have to say that my writing journey is one of my favorite things, and I’m always happy to share it with all of you.
Christmas ❤ I honestly really love spending time with my family and my friends, so it’s a lovely time of year. I’m also looking forward to 2017, and hoping that the coming up year brings surprises, fun, and good things for myself and the people that I care about. Other than that, I’m anticipating getting right and properly back into my writing schedule, because I’ve let myself get off… and now that I’m starting to veer back on course, it’s making me feel so much better.
Oh, still wishing that I had my own writing room. My desk is more than just a little cramped – my writing area is scattered with post-it notes and notebooks and loose sheets of paper everywhere. I want a bigger desk, with organizational ability. I want my own writing room, where I can go to concentrate. I’d happily share it with my husband – it could be my writing room/his room to make music… but a creativity room.
That sounds pretty damn amazing to me.
Making Me Happy
Oh, what’s making me happy. Hm… friends, family, the fact that I’ve kind of found this inner peace with myself that I’ll talk to you guys about later. As always, my husband is making me happy. Life has been looking really up for us – he got a full time position at his job (He was working basically full time before as a Special Education assistant, but he wasn’t getting the full time benefits). We’re looking to move (hopefully for the last time) in the next yearish… and all around, life is looking up.
As always, writing is still making me happy. Even though I’m not doing it as much as I did before, and even though I feel a little like I’m getting behind, it still makes me happy. It’s always going to be my peace, and my solace, and sometimes it takes me getting right and properly back into it for me to remember that… but that fact always ends up coming back to me.
There we go! This weeks Currently, dipping you back into all of the things that I’ve been doing, but haven’t been telling you about. Hopefully next weeks will have a little more information for everyone, and hopefully I’ll have gotten back into reading. Honestly, I miss that, and I know that it’s super important for my creativity. If you have any good recs, let me know!
So, until next time, you guys! Keep reading and writing, and keep being amazing!
