I failed to mention it on my DW but I mentioned it everywhere else multiple times, but I FINISHED MY FIRST DRAFT (second draft?) OF MWYR! I am so so so completely excited because, as of yesterday, Sarah finished reading it and wrote me 20+ pages of notes and is going to help me do fashion references once I decide on an era. AHHHH I know a lot of my other friends are reading it but I don't know how far along they all are. But it means a lot to me to have all these different people reading it (friends, family, people I don't know that well--thanks to all of you!)

I also finished rereading the first Kali and reading the 2nd Kali and asdflkj mmmmrrrrrrrrrrr my boys. All of them. I'm really proud of Sarah for charging ahead with it, because I think it is her most well-developed story and I will link you all once she puts it up onto Amazon and B&N for an epub book! Please buy it! It's fabulous. I will be buying it.

I've made several FSTs recently, one for Mwyr, and one for Kali 2 being the ones I will pimp at all of you. I listened to the Mwyr one the entire time I worked on the novel through the end of January and into February, and I've been listening to the Kali one all day today.

Tiffany and I have been looking at apartments online and are finding ones we like and making an order to all of them. We are both really excited. One place we found is TOTALLY ADORABLE AND PERFECT and it's right next to the lake and is in a really nice neighborhood and is really affordable. We've got some time to keep looking, but we're hoping to get that one. And we'll get to see Thor 2 and Catching Fire together (actually, the whole me moving out there with her thing started because I wanted to see Catching Fire with her. It escalated quickly.)

It was only yesterday that I came to realize that, after moving out to live in Chicago, I won't want to move back home with my parents. My mom has been telling me in no uncertain terms that they are thinking of renting out the guest house where I stay, which means I would have to move into the smaller room in the house. But, on the whole, I am really tired of living at home. It has it's perks, of course, but I'm turning 25 this year I think it's about time I get on my feet.

So I asked Sarah if her and Ick would be interested in moving in together somewhere (not San Francisco like our original plans with Amy, but somewhere), and she said they were considering doing something similar with their friend Julia from PA. They were looking into San Bernardino, probably close to where my mom had her apartment. But I think it would be a lot of fun. I know a lot of people have said to me "we should live together" but it's only that: Saying it. They're all very comfortable with where they are right now living and so who am I to say "you need to disrupt this so that I can make my way in". Sarah and Ick are in the same position that I am in. So it is perfect.

Camp NaNo starts next week (well, a week and four days?) And it's kind of cool because this year they are allowing you to set your own word count goal! So I'm aiming for 25k because super busy work hours. I'll also be doing world building exercises for Mwyr during that time, whew!

At the same time, there is a new fantasy anthology project that is accepting submissions with the theme of "Rediscovery". Submissions are to be 2k-8k long and I'm thinking of turning "Still Waiting" into a short story, and possibly seeing if I can't get Soup and Ick to help me out with an Adonisville entry. I've already started writing the thing for SW and it will be interesting to see how I will change it.

Gosh I've had this open for hours but nothing has been going down on here very easily

Dianne is about to start reading Mwyr! I am very excited, and she's going to liveblog her progress on tumblr using the tag "Mwyr because YOLO".

So I'm going to sit here and play Candy Crush and Bubble Witch or something and decide if I want to outline for Camp NaNo or draw.
