BE PROUD OF YOURSELF

Hello my lovely friends!

I'm so sad that I've gotten so out of the loop with blogging. With The Inferiors coming out in September-ish I should really post a lot more and visit people, things are just getting so crazy!

Examples:

ONE: I had to take my driving test three times in the past three weeks before I passed. The first time was just cause I sucked. The second time was because of a super mean lady, who didn't even let me finish my test. The third time, I finally passed because I took my test in a totally different place. So, the three weeks before I passed my test were filled with me driving everywhere so that I could pass. (I'm writing about this in detail on my other blog within the next few days).

TWO: I've been looking for a job. Well, more than looking. I've applied to a couple places, had a few interviews, and it seems that my luck might be changing for the better in that area. I'll emphasize it seems.

THREE: I'm starting college on the 29th! It's just at the local community college, but I'm so excited. I'm taking a few really cool classes, and I can't wait to get started.

So those are just three out of many examples on why I haven't been here. I know everyone hates excuses, so I'll try to make this the last time I ever make excuses for not blogging! The point is, it's been super hard to get editing done.

Though, I do have some VERY exciting news.

The book cover for The Inferiors finally came in.

I have no words to describe it. It's just perfect.

I haven't set up a cover release date YET. But within the next few days I'll have it all set up. So, stay tuned.

Overall, I just have to say: I am so proud of myself.

I hope that doesn't sound cocky to say. I honestly never think it's cocky or egotistical to be proud of oneself. So yes, I'm very proud of myself. And all of you should be proud of yourselves too for everything amazing you've done, and don't feel too humble to share it!

Question of today: what's something you've done recently, big or small, that you're proud of yourself for?

Have a lovely day everyone!

Can't wait to see your new cover!
Sorry you had to take the test three times. Third was the charm.
I'm proud that the IWSG team got everything pulled together for the Anthology Contest.

Congrats on the new book and getting the cover. That is a lot of work. And driving tests... Glad you finally passed.

Congrats, you have every reason to be proud. I had a mean lady like that once in 6th grade. Trust me you get to leave their bitter butt behind and live your life every time. Strict never has to be mean because I had strict teachers that I loved to death both back in school and even today. My proud moment recently was finishing a draft project for a customer and sending in the final chapter. Creative achievement and money in the bank. Very nice to help writers get their drafts done. Never done my freelancing would take me down this path.
