Writing Wednesdays! A Weekly Update

So I’ve completely failed to keep up with these ‘weekly’ updates. It’s not for lack of writing but rather the other aspects of my life keeping me super busy.

The last couple of weeks I’ve been going through the final rounds of edits on Scardust. We’re almost there! And I’ve got a release date now FEBRUARY 8th!! Which feels both painfully far away and excruciatingly close, so I’m working rather furiously on the last of my edits for this book.

Other than that, I’ve also received CP feedback on my YA fantasy novel and have been tweaking that into shape. The ms is looking good πŸ™‚

Lastly, I have been doing lots of thinking but not much writing on a short story that was due a month ago. Yup. I’m that far behind but hopefully today will see the completion of this story.

On top of all of that, I’ve been getting back into the swing of teaching, which is equally awesome and challenging. Every day I’m amazed by just how much I love teaching music.

And lastly, the saddest news for our household and something that has resulted in many sleepless nights and emotional days… πŸ™ it seems we may have to return our new dog to her previous owners πŸ™ Things were going well, but now that she’s settled in, she’s started attacking our older dog, Lego. For anyone who knows anything about me, you’ll know Lego is my most cherished fur-child and having to constantly leap in to prevent this new girl from tearing out his throat is taking its toll on all of us. Bleg. I get all choked up just writing this… butΒ Lego’s well-being and our sanity has to come first. We just cannot cope with the stress so back she’ll be going this weekend *sobs uncontrollably*

That’s what’s been happening in my world. How’s life treating you?

    Poor you. So sad about the dog, but quite understandable. Gotta be safe. Perhaps that dog belongs in a one dog household. πŸ™

    • πŸ™ She’s lovely. She’s great with kids and so affectionate but is proving extremely unpredictably aggressive πŸ™ She would be wonderful in a single-dog household.
