Real life just sometimes feels like an earthquake, and you're just trying to keep balanced. I know I've totally complained enough about all that already. It's just hard to think about normal stuff like blog-upkeep and social media and even writing when I don't know where I'm going to even be living in the next month or so. The GRE went really well, but now I'm just waiting to hear back from the school I applied to and see about this fall or if that doesn't work out then I have my friend in Salt Lake and is that the best option for me right now and if that's what ends up happening what in the world am I going to do for a job but maybe school will work out so I don't have to worry about it anyway but what if it doesn't...anyway, obviously my mind has just been taken up with frustrating and circular worrying that kind of squeezes out other stuff. Things are going great, I'm actually having a super fun summer, and doing my best to keep up with the normal writing stuff. It will just be nice to know whats going on in my life and settle into a schedule and stability. Hopefully soon.
Gah, okay, sorry, enough whining about my personal life. I just can't even bring myself to think about anything else for long enough to write about it. I've even debated cutting back the blogging schedule so I don't inundate you with the same rambling about my personal life over and over again. I'm going to try to just keep moving forward as usual though so the normal writing stuff that I actually care about can keep progressing. Don't worry, I'm going to make sure the posts are actually relevant to you and your writing goals.
And with that in mind, here are two resources for writing competitions that you definitely need to check out. Poets and Writers and FreelanceWriting. Great lists, and sometimes the entrance fee might even be worth it.
Also, if you haven't seen the amazing, wonderful and hilarious video blog adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Hank Green, check it out. Seriously. Who'd have thought that Pride and Prejudice would lend itself so beautifully to the video blog format?
Anyway, sorry for the randomness and whinyness. Stick around, things will get figured out soon enough. Then we're really going to be ready to rock and roll.
