The Official Post On What Is To Come in January

I started this blog for the sake of my writing career. I wanted to have a platform specifically to showcase the details of my writing and future publishing endeavors. My book review blog could be used for that, but I wanted to separate the two.

The last few months in my real life have been very chaotic to say the least. I quit my job of 6 1/2 years and started a new one the following week (both as a pharmacy technician). It meant working an extra 10 hours a week, which was fine by me, but it meant I had to reschedule other things in my life. That wasn't easy to do, and it's still a bit tough managing my free time. Two weeks this month, I worked 6 days in a row to help out with a massive project inputting data for nursing homes in the computer, one of those weeks logging in 50 hours.

Needless to say, this blog ended up falling by the wayside. It was unfortunate considering how much I wanted to keep this up to keep my followers updated. But, now that we're heading into a new year, it's time to get back on track again. Here is what you will be seeing on this blog soon...

1). Weekly updates on my writing every Friday.
2). Occasional posts related to writing.
3). Details on If Only We for beta readers and review requests, and the cover reveal.
4). The completion and publication of my novel If Only We.
5). An announcement of the next novel I'll be writing.
6). Another announcement of another writing project.
7). Occasional Music Monday posts whenever I've been inspired by a song.
8). The occasional personal post on some important non-writing things that are going on.

I will also be setting up an official writer Facebook page sometime in January AND possibly getting a redesign on the blog.

So, that's about it! I just thought I would let you guys know that I am still here and I'm working on some big things to keep this blog updated and getting somewhere with my novel. A huge thank you to those who have been sticking around! *hugs*

Normal like a FOX!

Instant message conversation between myself and my best friend Rebecca after she suggests an idea I've mentioned off and on over the past couple months as an alternative to the situation at hand...

Jessica: You got that right!

Rebecca: Of course, I learned from the best.

Jessica: Oh yes. I am a troublemaker. And a bad influence. And I'm awesome.

Rebecca: Which is exactly why I love you.

Jessica: And the fact that you appreciate that about me and that you're the same way too is why I love you!

Rebecca: We make an awesome pair don't we?

Jessica: Why yes. Yes we do.

Rebecca: Our poor families....

Jessica: Hahaha, oh yeah. Definitely. That's why they think we're crazy... haven't they figured out that we're the normal ones and they are crazy? Talk about crazy...

Rebecca: I know right? Because you know that crazy people are the normal ones now? Statistics prove it.

Jessica: I am so normal. Normal like a FOX!

Rebecca: LOL! Didn't see that coming.

Jessica: I didn't either, what the crap did I write?! OMG I am giggling under my breath. What the crap.

Rebecca: OMG you ARE slap happy.

This is why I shouldn't be let outside the house when I'm tired.
