I know, I know, I haven't written on my OneWord365 this year, but it's been a very tumultuous 10 months for me so far. Last week alone was filled with so much work that I spent all my free time sleeping so I could maintain enough energy to complete the tasks I needed to do.
What did those duties entail? Well, it involved mainly 2 things (both of which had a lot of smaller, pressing tasks):
Let me break it down a bit further for you. My college transfer application involved a bunch of things (most of which I had done in advance, but making sure everything got in on time was more than a little tough):
For the play, I basically became the head of the back-stage. I was in charge of the numerous quick-changes for every show, and the makeup for 3 of the 5 shows. This wouldn't have been that much of a big deal, except I had signed up as an assistant as a favor to the friend, but when that friend essentially went MIA, I had to take charge of a lot of responsibilities I wasn't expecting.
And, I should address the elephant in the room: I haven't written a word for NaNoWriMo yet. And yes, it's an excuse to say it's because I had all this stuff going on, but that doesn't make it any less true. I doubt I'll be able to "win" NaNo this year, but I'm hoping after this week I'll be able to hunker down and write more of The Matchmakers before I have to start worrying about finals (though knowing Brandeis' assignment schedule, I know this is 99.99% a pipe dream).
So, that's the latest update with me.
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
