So, this blog is a long time coming, but it's finally here. Sadly, I feel like most of my time has been crazy busy this week, despite nothing out of the ordinary happening. This coming week, I have retraining at work, so I'll be there five days in a row. I've been trying to get a lot of my writing work out of the way this week to prepare. I also had to take this last week off working out to work out some problems with my knee. Strained it by lifting TOO heavy. Who knew?
I was running on the treadmill last week, listening to the instrumental portions of The Little Mermaid by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and I got seriously lost in how gorgeous it was. One of my favorite parts of film scores is how I can usually see the part in the movie that they're from while I'm listening.
The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's the only Disney movie that makes me cry like a baby (The scene at the end where Triton and Ariel hug on her wedding day...*wibble* I lose it EVERY time!), it's about a singer (I'm also a singer), and a girl who has a thing for dark-haired men.
I am totally guilty of that. :-)
Every time I go workout lately, I've been listening to Disney albums. Mulan, Hercules, Beauty and the Beast, Hunchback, Tarzan, Aladdin, etc. I keep using it to psych myself up for the Disney Princess Run next year (or the year after, considering my cruise might be that same week). It's all happy and motivating. I will TAKE it!
I did finally get my book finished. It was Monday night, and I didn't go to bed until I finished. Working on some changes, but I finished a second story. As a girl who's never finished much of anything, this is exciting news. I've been working on making acquaintences across the board who know how Indie publishing works. I've been trying to teach myself more and more about marketing, and becoming a better writer.
That is all that is happening here. I really hope I keep more up to date here. It's insane how little I've been blogging lately!
