I had it all planned out that I would have select posts for each month, preferably two a month, only, I stared at my ideas. And stared some more. Then decided to work on other stuff because of course I'd get to it. There's how many days a month? Uhm...yes, that didn't happen. But I did write. Which is why I'm happy to announce that I have two new contracts with Less Than Three Press. The first story is just a smidge over 16k and is a bit of a Cinderella remix (I actually wasn't thinking about the Cinderella movie when I wrote it, it wasn't until after it was done and I sent it off that I saw the first, full Cinderella trailer. It was a bit of a "...well shoot." moment, but I still wrote the sequel to that first one, which ended up being a bit over 52k. I actually debated a bit about combining the two, but everything I tried didn't feel right. So, I sent the first one off, polished up the second, waited until I heard back about the first before asking when I could send off the second, then sent off the second. Now it's just a waiting game for when the edits arrive (I kind of want them now, because my mind's all in a whirl wondering what the editor will say).

And then I received a contract from MLR. I was a bit boggled at all of this, but I guess it works. Between all of this I took a M/M Romance Group prompt for their Goodreads event, Don't Read in the Closet. This time around it's being called Love is an Open Road (LOR for short which has a lot of people adding a T to it, including me) and my prompt involves a genie and a pirate captain. I'm really excited for it and hope that it might help get me into writing the sequel to my first DRitC story, which is sitting there, sulking, wanting to be written but fighting me every step of the way. It's a bit sad for me because I really want to write it.

On a side note, one of my siblings has the chance for a second interview, and, depending if they go, means I may or may not be moving with them. I won't say where yet, just because I feel a strange sense that I might jinx them.

I believe that's about it. I feel as if I'm a rather dull person. *shrugs shoulders* Ah, well, at least I have my writing.
