There's been an LJI friending frenzy, so I should probably post to make it look like I do that!

I really have been posting a lot more in the past year or so, but honestly, that could mean anything from "daily" to "once every two weeks".

VEDA's coming up and I'm not sure if I'm going to do it - it's REALLY hard, I'm finding, to make videos when Green is home all the time. I got so used to having chunks of time where she was at work and I could take my time setting up, doing it anywhere, and acting the fool.

Now with us both working at home, space to vlog is limited, time to vlog is limited, and desire to vlog is SEVERELY limited because I haaaaaaaaaaate doing it in front of other people.

Whine whine whine, #firstworldproblems.

Anyway, I have jumped back into novel revision after another three month delay. (I'm working through Holly Lisle's "How To Revise Your Novel" course, because after years of attempting to revise my own novels, I decided I want someone to hold my hand through it at least once.)

I FINALLY finished lesson five today. It took me a little over a week, but I didn't work on it every single day.

I've read lesson 6, and I'm pretty confused by it. I really like Holly's course so far, and I'm trying to trust the process, but this lesson feels like it has really vague instructions and I'm not entirely sure what to do. Which is frustrating when I want to be given very specific instructions. So I guess I'll spend some time poking around on the forums and attempting to come up with a battle plan, then charging in. As long as I don't take a 2-3 month break in between this lesson, I'll be fine.

My goal is to finish all of the lessons up to the final type-in before NaNoWriMo this year, and use the momentum I feel during NaNo to do the type-in and final revision. It won't be a "true" NaNo, but I've been NaNoing since '02 and I've legit won at least 6 times, so now I just use it to get more writing done. This book started out as a NaNo novel - it should finish as one, too! Because hopefully this will be the last major draft before it's readable.

ANYWAY. That's my life. Attempting vlogs. Attempting revisions. Also making hoops. This has been a CRAZY busy month for my Etsy shop, and I don't know where everyone came from, but I finally had a little break today since I emptied my queue yesterday.
