Where I’ve Been…

Where I’ve Been…

Sorry I haven’t been around much lately.

I’ve been busy with my new job. I’m now working as a copywriter for a mortgage company in Westminster, which means my commute went from an hour to six minutes (eight, if I hit a lot of lights or traffic).

Yeah, it’s great.

I’m loving the job. I like the work (mostly writing short, ad-like copy) and I love the team I’m working with.

But it means I’ve been busy learning the ropes of a new place and haven’t had time for this blog lately.

I’ve been running a lot lately too.

Usually, the only reason I run is if someone is chasing me.

But I got an app about a month ago that helps build up my running endurance, and it’s been working really well for me. All I have to do is put in my headphones, and listen to the running app’s instructions.

This is a lie… But seemed appropriate with the holidays coming up…

It’s my very own running conscience. For some reason, I work really well with instructions. I also like to see that nice green check mark after every run. I’m working up, but this month I’ve already run 27.1 miles, which is a lot for me. It really helps me feel accomplished.

I’ve also been working on different writing things: first, revising Adelaide. I was getting a lot of solid feedback over the past months about what was and wasn’t working, and so I changed up the structure to reflect that. I think this revision is really strong, and the pace is moving forward a lot faster, so I’m gonna start querying that revision soon too.

I’m still writing Flame of Burnt Brandy. I have no idea where it’s going… but I really like these characters. And I want to stick with them. I assume they’ll reveal their secrets to me eventually.

Keep writing, friends.

Auld Lang Syne is one of my favorite songs. It was written by the poet Robert Burns and the phrase itself means, “times long past”. The idea of looking back on time gone is one that I think is especially important. In fact, that’s one […]
