Starting Over

I’ve been struggling with this decision for over a month now, but I think it’s time for me to scrap Purity and start over. It’s not what I want it to be, and although I could “make do” with what I have, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night thinking about it. 🙂

So I’m starting over, which is a pretty huge setback, but it will, hopefully, be better for it, and I now have a much better idea of how to manage the thing. I had been stalling so much on it that I had gotten behind on the Ava stuff (this month was meant to be all Ava book 5 work), so if I’m going to get further behind, I might as well have something better to show for it. I have a stupid colour-coordinated schedule that’s gotten filled up with red blocks (meaning epic failure) where I haven’t managed to finish whatever I had planned on doing because I’ve been so busy fretting over Purity like a turnip. :/

This week we’re either getting keys to a house or else starting over on the house hunting. Either way I’ll end up working in the car which might turn out for the best considering there will likely be a little bit of travelling going on in Purity. 🙂

Fresh to Death

Clarity’s finally on the Apple iBookstore. There have been rumoured sightings, but it’s definitely up there for real right now. 🙂 I think Smashwords and Kobo are the only places that have all of my books.

We might be getting the keys of the new place next week (and our doggies are getting their stitches out, too), so expect some occasional radio silence. We can’t officially move until the kids finish up at school, but we’ll be going back and forth getting ready for a few weeks at least. I’m kind of terrified.

Been listening to Lana Del Rey a lot recently and realised that my Purity playlist is extremely depressing. I really need to start writing fun, joyful stories. Some day. 😀 And Game of Thrones is over until next year, so my Monday nights have been rendered pointless until then. I need a new obsession.

Also, I’ve been watching the Vampire Diaries after nearly everyone in the world told me I was missing out. I didn’t like the book, and I did try to watch the series before but couldn’t get into it. Tried again, and I definitely don’t hate the series (although I don’t understand the Salvatore love at all), and I will probably even watch next season. It’s actually kind of addictive and ridiculous in a fun soap opera kind of way. There was a sad period in my life when I had a weird addiction to Sunset Beach which was much more ridiculous, so I can probably handle all of the things that make me roll my eyes. So yeah, thanks for making me try it again, rest of the world. 😉
