Ending Up In A BuzzFeed Article - Writing Excerpt

It's a thin line to keeping your safety yours and contained and having freedom of expression.

A line I hope we can solidify soon.

This ordeal has left me feeling creeped out, surveyed, and scared of losing my job (something no one should ever have to deal with).

I'm glad I didn't give into the 'internet fame' mentality that blankets our internet-generation now (I did gain a slew of new Instagram followers thanks to the article, but that doesn't really mean anything in the real world). Sure it may translate to book sales in the future (huge may), but it doesn't really help my present where I have to work for a living and I'm actually excited about my job.

Visibility

fbnotificationsSo you know that pesky Facebook change that's coming at the dawn of the new year? No? Well, it's a little thing that reduces visibility on Facebook Pages, like mine above, and well...everyone who has a Facebook Page for their business. It sucks for a few reasons. One of 'em is that, we already can't get our posts we DO posts on there visible to all of the people that have 'liked' our page (we have to pay for further visibility to really get anyone interested in our content), and they decided to make it so you have to click a little button, even if you've already liked the page, to 'Get Notifications.'

I've given you guys a screenshot of this to help you see what it's like. So go, I implore you, go forth and click those buttons on all the pages you have 'liked,' that is, if you want content. And you do want content from us right?

You especially do for me, because this upcoming year promises to be a busy year for me.

After all, there are only

424

I mean, that's a pretty big deal. It's been about three years since I self-published The Dark World: A Delacroix Novel, and to now have signed a contract with Permuted Press for all five books, it's astounding how much can change in as little as a year.

To further that thought, I went on an interview for Weinstein Books recently for an internship.

It was amazing being in that office, for starters, and I should hear back from them (after doing a little work for them) in the first week of January or sooner. (Hopefully sooner.)

In other news, I had an amazing writing streak yesterday, where I clocked in two chapters of The Two Swords, writing the whole entire day, only stopping for food and other things. It was glorious.

Today, of course, as equilibrium would have it, the ideas have left me and I don't want to think about writing, let alone look at the story, so of course, I took to Instagram.

I had to stop by the DMV after dropping my boyfriend, Alfred, off to work. I'll admit, I was dreading it, wanting to put it off for another day because the DMV is known for being horrible in every aspect. Wait times, rude people...etc.

Surpringly, within minutes of sitting down, they called my number:

dmvand I, flummoxed as I was, looked around for my booth, took my eye exam, renewed my license, and left.

dmv2I'd never been out of there so fast.

Needless to say I was quite happy to have the rest of the day to myself.

And not to be outdone, Sage had to get in on the mindless videos:

Currently watching The Good Wife (I'm kind of obsessed), and laying on the couch in a lipsticked-slump of numbness.

What are you up to?
