Chosen, Pride Month, and a girl named Silas

Hello, friends. I’m back with an update, because it’s Sunday again and there are no lengths to which I won’t go to put off doing housework.

Over the last few days, I’ve been writingwritingwriting, working hard on Chosen, A.K.A. my Gay Fantasy Epic (TM).

It’s been going surprisingly well, to the extent that I’m now at the midpoint of the book, and A Very Dramatic Occurrence has just Occurred. I’m now actually reaching the point where I have to try to connect the beginning chapters of the story (which I wrote within the last few months) with the latter half of the story (which I wrote quite a long time ago) and see if they actually fit together, or if I’ll have to redo the whole bloody rest of the book.

Yep, I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to rewrite the whole thing.

But hey, if it ends with me having written an awesome book of awesomeness, it’ll all have been worth it.

In other Chosen news, I’ve gender-switched one of the characters from a vicious boy bully named Silas…to a vicious girl bully named Silas. And I have to confess that I kind of like the idea of a girl named Silas, so the name may end up staying through to the final draft.

In non-Chosen news, June is Pride Month (insert explosion of rainbows here), so I shall offer up some pride in the girl-loving side of my bisexual self and say that Gwen from Merlin is pretty smokin’ in this gif:

Do you deny it? CAN you deny it?

Didn’t think so.

So, on that note, I’ll be on my way, back to writing and listening to music and wishing fervently that my laundry would head on down to the laundry room and wash itself. I’m sure if I stare at it for long enough and continue to make shooing motions, it’ll get the idea.

Yeah, I may be a tiny bit sleep-deprived.

A very important blog post not in any way about procrastinating.

Greetings, Internet. I have returned. Again. I have re-returned.

Sadly, I’m not at my most coherent at the moment, as my dear feline companion Benny (see my Cat Stuff page for more on the little furball) decided that six AM would be a great time to start howling and scratching at my bedroom door like the apartment was on fire.

Had the apartment actually been on fire, Benny would no doubt have been hailed as a Brave Hero Cat who nobly sacrificed his delicate vocal chords in order to sound the alarm and alert the slumbering humans in the building to the danger. As the apartment was not on fire, however, and his motivation was apparently more along the lines of, “Wake up and pay attention to me,” all his efforts did were royally annoy his owner, who had been hoping to sleep in.

Anyway, due to waking up so early, my brain is somewhere between Zombie Mode and Everything Is Hilarious Mode, while my body mainly just wants to do this:

So, yeah, this is sure to be a great entry.

If my brain is in such a dreadful state, then why, you may ask, am I even bothering to attempt to update my blog?

Well, that can be explained via my To Do List for today, which I offer below:

1. Wash dishes
2. Clean sink, wipe off counters
3. Tidy apartment
4. Clean off desk
5. Do laundry
6. Sweep
7. Dust
8. Go grocery shopping
9. Clean bathroom
10. Clean out refrigerator
11. Take out garbage, recyclables
12. Go back in time to tell younger self to enjoy childhood more, because damn, being an adult sucks sometimes.

So, the very difficult choice I find myself faced with this morning is: Do I get started on all the desperately-needs-to-be-done housework I’ve been putting off for weeks, or do I write a semi-coherent entry on the blog I just updated a day ago?

So, yeah, blog entry it is.

I…don’t actually have anything to talk about, however, which I will admit is something of a roadblock.

Um.

So.

What is the deal with airline food? Am I right??

Fine. Off to clean. But if I think of anything even remotely interesting to say), I’ll be back.

Water triiiiiiibe. *exits*
