Fanart of Sephiroth holding a swooning AerisI finally finished my revisions of Chapter 2 and now I’m in the reviewing process.  This was a tough week including the weekend in terms of the time and tiredness factor, so I was only able to review Chapter 1.  Here’s hoping next week is more productive.

In Progress

  • Audio Recording – I recorded the second part of the essay in question on Friday as planned, though my voice still failed me after about a half an hour.  Either way it’s done so I need to edit it.  I’m hoping my slower reading sounds better than the prior one.  I’m probably going to try to finish recording the rest of it before doing the full edit.  I have the parts with the video comparisons to record.
  • Favorite Game Every Year I’ve Been Alive – I’m in the 2010’s now.  Hoping to finish figuring out the games this week so I can start the post.

I think this may be my shortest update post of them all.  I really want to get the Game of the Years thing posted.  Why do I do these italicized afterwards?  Is it supposed to be a wrap up/summary?  I have no clue, but I’m going to keep doing them 😉  What have you worked on lately?  How is February treating you?  I’m ordering cupcakes for Valentine’s Day, because I use it as an excuse to eat cake and drink wine…not that I need one.  What’s your favorite kind of cupcake?  What type of wine do you prefer?  I think I might go for some champagne cupcakes and make this champagne mimosa drink I saw on Facebook.  I’m also seeing a rheumatologist that day, which is a good thing.  Okay, I’ve rambled long enough.  Let’s chat in the comments!

  2. Writer’s gonna write! 😀 I will definitely be rereading those chapters of Broken Rose when you’re done making them perfect!

    Ah, yes. Half Priced Chocolate Day Eve is this week, eh? Meh! I don’t need an excuse to drink and eat cake. 😛

  3. Woo! Cupcakes and wine! 😀 Champagne cupcakes sound so good, but I have yet to actually try one. It’s so hard to pick a single favorite type of cupcake, but I will say I recently had an amazing snickerdoodle cupcake with the best cinnamon frosting, so that was quite nice. 🙂
    I feel like I still haven’t gotten back on track with writing since the holidays kicked my butt. I really need to get back at it.

  4. I don’t drink wine, can I have two cupcakes please? Any flavour.

    I’m amazed that you do so much with all the exhaustion you’re dealing with, that takes real strength. Is the Broken Rose going out to the world when you’re finished? I’ve read so much about it, I’d really like to read it.
