Morning Exercise

Good morning, for some reason I’m up a lot earlier than expected…but I usually don’t sleep for very long. I should try harder to resist afternoon naps. They completely through off my schedule, and make me feel as though I’ve wasted my day…much like sleeping in.

I’m going to do a bit of light exercise this morning, since I’ve been slacking in that department lately. Then I’ll do some work on my novel and of course homework that I’ve put off far too long. I at least need to get some ideas down on paper. My schedule’s been pretty busy this weekend. I’ve had events since Friday evening, and after today it will be the end of that. I’m expecting it to go well today. Friday was…stressful.

I’m still trying to convince my younger sister to create a blog on wordpress.com for her art. She’s two won awards in the graphic narrative section of a yearly literary competition that is held for students in our hometown. She is her own worst critic however, so I believe this is what’s taking her so long.

I understand though. When it comes to my writing I am often reluctant to share it with my family and friends because I’m worried they’re judge me. Especially when it comes to my lyrics and poetry. A lot of the time my poems and songs are centered around characters I’ve created for stories I’m working on, so the themes behind them have a huge contrast. My creative writing professor last year was surprised when I shared a happy story that used warm imagery because all of my other work that I’d presented in class had a tendency to be very cold and depressing.

Speaking of cold, I think I’ll do my exercise in doors today. Burr…I’m shivering as it is. I like winter time but I don’t wanna be in the cold longĀ if I don’t have too. I really love getting in a good work out early in the morning. Helps to lose all the stress from the day before. I always feel really pumped afterwards.

Until next time,

Happy Anniversary! To this blog…

Wow my blog is officially 2 years old…that is so cool. It’s grown a lot since I started (though lately because of work I haven’t been posting as often).

I promise that I will be posting some of my work very soon. I don’t have a set date right now only because of work. That just wouldn’t be fair to any of you…plus it would stress me out.

My novel is also 3 years old. I realized that the other day while writing. I date my pages. All of them. I know its a little weird but it actually helps me keep thinks organized if I date and number my pages.

My babies are growing up…it’s like I’ve been raising two kids. I’m watching them grow and develop and blossom…and all of those words mean the same thing but like…it’s just so cool.

From one word to nearly 20 chapters. From one follower to almost 500. I can’t even put into words how good it feels to…have your hard work pay off. It’s really wonderful.

Thank you all for your support over these last two years and I will do my best to blog at least twice a week. I’ve just been working two weeks straight so I haven’t had any time off.

It’s funny how my blogiversary is in between my mom and dads anniversary and my sisters birthday. Hmm…must’ve planned that secretly.

Stay tuned and thank you all,

R.
