Blogging Update

dear-reader3

Guys, I don’t know if you know, but I haven’t posted anything IN FOREVER.

Or, maybe you do.

Either way, I just wanted to post a quick update to let you all know that I’m still here. Things have been crazy in my personal life – the holidays were not pleasant, I’m probably going to be evicted by the end of April and have NO idea where I’m going to live, and am working so much all the time that I have little life of my own anymore! And worse still, MY LAPTOP IS TRYING TO DIE.

However, since I use it to make money, I am planning on getting a new one. (Anyone with suggestions, please feel free to comment, but I am definitely doing this on a budget, so cheaper is better right now. I found a pretty purple one for around $200 so I might just do that.)

Additionally, I lost a tooth (and you all can just assume it wasn’t a baby one). I currently feel like a dumb troll as a result, even though I would never think that of anyone else. People are funny that way.

And finally, I haven’t read anything this year. Not. One. Damn. Thing. Can you believe it? I’m heartbroken. I hope that some of this stress will go away for a minute and I can get back to doing the things I love, but for now, I will try to make more posts again and focus on saving up for a laptop before this one dies on me.

Feel free to comment on the craziness in your life – or if you have any suggestions on how the heck you’re supposed to manage stress – below!

Miss you guys! I’ll be back when I can.

Update

I feel as though I should apologize! I haven’t been on my blog much lately and I feel sort of bad for that. October has turned into a super busy (and way stressful) month for me, which irks me to no end.

Where are the pumpkin spice lattes? (And, well, everything really.)

Where is the pumpkin carving?

Where are the bad horror movies?

WHERE IS MY DARN COFFEE??!?!

Oh, wait, that last one isn’t really an October thing… Anyway, I really just ended up swamped by work. Deadlines got moved up (which was not my idea) and as a result, I can’t get anything done on time. Worse, everyone wants me to do MORE. More revisions. More writing. More outlining.

Whatever.

All of this accumulates until we are left with just one thing: An annoyed E.C. (Who is prone to random crying fits that really have no bearing on anything and are making my significant other stare at me as though I’ve grown a second head… but we won’t talk about that.)

Anyway, I really just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t forgotten you all! This has been an awesome experience to reenter the blogging sphere and I’m not giving it up. I just haven’t had the chance to be as active as I’d like. But I’ll get started on some more posts, some much overdue comment replies and some blog perusing. Additionally, I swear I WILL get back to my How To Write A Novel series.

Eventually, lol.

There you have it folks. I’m not done yet, just having that pesky Life Happens problem. I’m still doing the Halloween Read-a-Thon (which, if you haven’t checked it out, link is here; my TBR is here) and have started Ouija! I’m about 25% through.

Stay tuned for updates. And feel free to comment below with… well, whatever you’d like! Tell me what YOU do when life gets in the way! How do you deal with stress? What’s eating you lately?

Sharing is caring!

P.S. – I just found out how to delete stuff off my Kindle that I didn’t want. Lol. I feel accomplished.

Suicide Prevention Month

**BEFORE WE START: This post will contain sensitive topics like suicide. If you are not comfortable with this, please read no further. I share this because it is important to me, but this has nothing to do with my normal blog posts, nothing to do with reading, reviewing, or writing. Also, there are resources at the end of this post for suicide prevention, so if you need those, please mosey on down to the very bottom.**
