Monthly Count

My word count for this month is about 10K I think? I’m not completely sure but it’s somewhere around that.

Around this time last year I was writing about 20K a month. I’ve slowed down a bit, but hey at least I’m still writing right? <—that was a pun

I’ve been writing non fiction in the form of shorter to longer pieces about moments in my life. I’m telling myself that it’ll be for a future memoir or something. But I think it’s therapeutic more than anyway. I started writing more about feelings when I was in the hospital because we had to journal three times a day haha. But I really like it and it gives me a way to release everything without raging. I definitely recommend it.

So that’s how things are doing in writing land. What about you guys? How is your writing going?

Sunny Days

I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been taking my medicine regularly but for the past few weeks I’ve been feeling better? The mood is normal.

My parents think that I should take my medicine at a certain time of night. My pdoc told me to take them whenever I go to bed. Lately that’s been in the early morning hours and thus that’s when I’ve been taking it. Sure I sleep for most of the day, but hey at least my moods aren’t all over the place right?

I’m feeling upbeat. I don’t feel euphoric or anything, but I feel reasonably happy which is very good.

Considering my mood in the previous months that is definitely an upside.

Tart by Lauren Dane Review

Tart (Delicious, #2)Tart by Lauren Dane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay so officially this was my second erotica and it was MILES better than my first. The plot is really good and I really felt like the relationships between not only the three in the relationship but with family and friends were very realistic. Their friends are awesome.

I could relate to Juliet a lot with her thoughts with certain situations. I know I would probably be thinking the same thing if I was in the situation.

Cal and Gideon were perfect, though I was more partial to Cal.

I love that the author got into the…logistics I guess I should say of a relationship like theirs.

Oh and the sex was hot! Mhmmm.

I only rated this four stars because I liked it, but I didn’t love it you know? But I like the author’s style and I’m definitely checking out more of her stuff.

It Happened One Midnight by Julie Anne Long Review and Spoilers

It Happened One Midnight (Pennyroyal Green, #8)It Happened One Midnight by Julie Anne Long

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book…this book!

This book managed to keep my attention for more than two days. From the start I absolutely loved Jonathan and Tommy. Their personalities shine through from the page. I loved how their relationship developed throughout the book. And I love how they teased each other! I was cackling so hard while reading this book.

I loved the end where Jonathan makes enough money so he be independent and be free to marry Tommy. I love how he lays things out before his Dad. He challenges him because he loves Tommy and he knows that she is what he wants.

I liked the epilogue where Violet and Miles show up. The end left me with a little hope that the family will come back together and patch up things between them. What more can you ask for?

I think I’m going to add this book to my favorites shelf. I loved it that much!

Three Days in Counting!

Alright you guys. Today makes the third day that I had written 1k! You don’t know how excited I am. I have fell off my regular writing schedule in a major way…thanks Sims 3. But I think I’m getting back in the groove!

And I’m fleshing out more characters for TMC! I also need to work on my other stories, but I’ll take what I can get haha. What about you guys? How’s your writing going?

Welcome to the Jungle

I’ve been dealing with BP officially since May 2007. Six long years.

I remember when I was first diagnosed. I cried. I was reminded of the taunts that some of my schoolmates had thrown at me.

But afterwards I was happy. Leading up to this, I had had many tests done trying to figure out what I was so tired. Why I felt so sick.

Right now I’m dealing with a current bout. But this seems to be different somehow. I’m used to mania. It’s become an old friend. But this sadness…the hopelessness. I haven’t felt that in years.

I’m a bit confused. I’m up and then I’m down. It’s annoying. I’m not in control…I have control issues.

The nurses at the psych ward told me that writing is therapeutic. I’ve found this to be true. I’ve always found that talking things out have helped me. Perhaps this blog may help someone one day? I would hope so.

Yay Me!

Today I reached my original goal of writing 1K. Last night I was reading over some of my previous stories and I started to fall in love with my characters once again. So I guess today I was particularly inspired.

I’m going to try to write at least 350-500 words tomorrow. My mood has been rather spiky lately and I’m having the cramps from hell. But I shall prevail! I shall!
