#9: Revising the Routine

Happy Sunday, little vamps and newcomers!

Welcome to my weekly blog!

My second week of the last semester of college has finally ended and.. honestly? I'm more exhausted than I predicted. I'm also mainly made up of stress right now. Thankfully, I've kept up with my sleep schedule (sometimes) so that's progress and I don't feel like I'm about to drop dead! Anyway, I don't want to dwell on some of my personal issues that took place recently (mainly revolving around loneliness, depression and anxiety) so I'll move on to happier, more productive topics ASAP.

Like, hey! Do you have a Twitter account? Do you follow me? If not, this next part doesn't really apply to you, but if you're interested, feel free to read on!

Ok, so. I had an idea earlier this week about doing a special thing on my Twitter (@AuthorRJCity if you didn't already know!) on a daily basis, since I need to make a habit of going on there instead of staying fixated on my personal account :) This new routine plan might go terribly, but I'm willing to try! The plan is as follows:

  • Sundays will be the #SundayBlog: I write/post the weekly Sunday blog, which, SURPRISE! I'm already technically doing, so that won't be changing ;)

  • Mondays will be #MondayMusic: I'll be sharing multiple songs that relate to my stories (especially The Hunters Saga) or ones that come from my lengthy inspiration playlist! People are welcome to send songs to me for recommendations~

  • Tuesdays will be #TeaserTuesday: I'll tweet/share a teaser, quote, picture, ANYTHING from my current WIP (which is The Wolfsbane Ruby in this case!) ^^

  • Wednesdays will be #WIPWednesday: Along the lines of #TeaserTuesday, but this will mainly be an update of sorts for my current WIP instead of a teaser or sneak peek!

  • Thursdays will be the #ThursdayPromo: This one isn't just for Twitter! As the hashtag suggests, I'll be using this day to promote my current book (The Blood Diamond, in this case) on all platforms, including Facebook, Tumblr and, of course, Twitter :) Help out by retweeting/rebloging/sharing!

  • Fridays will be #OCFactFriday: Now, originally, when I tried this out in the past (on Facebook only, though), this was actually called #FanFriday, a day in which people could ask me literally anything. Of course, weeks of no participation made me drop the idea. Now, with this plan, I'll just be sharing a fact (or two) about an OC of my choosing or, hey, I might even take requests! Who knows?? :)

  • Last but not least...Saturdays will be #ShipSaturday: It's pretty simple. I'll be either sharing a song OR doing art for the OC pairing~ Never both. And depending on how busy I am during the week itself, I might tweet out more songs than art; that's just a given, though.

So yeah! This is the plan, my new routine starting TODAY! :D

Now, onto the topic of writing/outlining! I'm... gonna be honest with you guys yet again. Thanks to classes starting up and assignments taking up over half of my week, I haven't had too much time to read. Besides personal issues and family stuff taking up the other half, I've maybe outlined three whole chapters this week. And my original goal had been to finish the outline by today, too, so that really sucks. I'm not giving up, of course. I just need even better time management. At least I have a deadline for The Wolfsbane Ruby, and as long as I stick to it as well as knowing which chapters have to be rewritten as opposed to just edited, I should be fine. Should. That's the word.

Alright, I probably skipped on a few other topics, but I've been typing for long enough and I need to return to my newest art project. Thanks for listening!

See you all next Sunday, little vamps!
