News, Upcoming Posts, and Miscellaneous Ramblings

Hello, dear readers.

As I am certain you ascertained from this post’s title, this will be a unique post. For one, I usually only post things blog, tag, or writing advice related. I don’t think I’ve ever posted anything personal as far as writing updates, life in general, or anything like that.

I know I have an “Upcoming Posts” section on my sidebar, but I really am quite terrible at updating it and I’m too lazy to wait for the sidebar to load. Upcoming posts will include, of course, book reviews (no surprise there). Genres are science fiction, fantasy, historical romance, and suspense. I’ll also have a few author interviews, specifically from E.J. Kitchens and Penny Zeller. Now, I do not know the precise dates for these posts, save that the suspense will be in the next few weeks. But I can guarantee they’ll happen in the upcoming months, so stay tuned!

Regarding the “news” aspect…May 13th is Madi’s Musings’ sixth blogiversary. Exciting. I’ll touch on the blog’s history, inspiration, and more on May 13th. I also thought it’d be fun to do a Q&A. I’ve seen other bloggers do that, and it was a great way to connect with some people I quite admire. Here is the form. I figured that’d be easier than asking for comments to be posted. WordPress doesn’t always alert me to new comments; this way I will for certain see the questions. Please feel free to ask whatever – anything about writing, books, music, books, why I’d make a good dragon, books, etc.. Also, please feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like. The more the better!

Now we are entering the miscellaneous ramblings section.

I’ve never really done a writing update before, so here goes. I’m at 58,000 right now on the rewrite. My end goal is 100,000, give or take a few. The characters are not cooperating well, I’m a slow typer, and I’m trying to low-key develop some romance between two of the characters, but they insist on thinking each other bothersome to the extreme. *sigh* The life of a writer.

This is the last week of college. Thank goodness. Yeah…that’s all I really have to say about that. It wasn’t the worst semester, since there was no math and Spanish involved, and most of my fellow college-mates were decent enough, but I’ll be happy to move on.

So, that’s that, I believe. I’m not good at rambling, I suppose, but this wasn’t a bad first attempt. Let me know how you’re doing! How’s the writing? Or if you don’t write, what are you reading? How is life going?

May your second breakfasts be plentiful and may you have the heart of hobbits, the courage of men, and the wisdom of Gandalf, and remember to never laugh at a live dragon – they are quite conceited and do not take well to being the object of mirth (does anyone get my The Hobbit reference? Anyone?).

    Congrats on your last week of college! And on writing, too! Uncooperative characters can seriously be so frustrating. But hey, if they treat you that way I guess it’s a good sign – it means you’ve given them a mind of their own! XD
    Can’t wait for the Q&A. I shall definitely submit questions.
