#22: All Things New: Schedule, Challenges, & Content!

Happy Sunday, little vamps!

If you're new here, welcome to my weekly blog! This is the place where I'll be summing up my week in all aspects of my life, not just writing! And if you're a regular visitor to my site, welcome back! :)

Let me just start by saying that rewriting the first chapter of a sequel is probably the hardest challenge EVER!

That being said, though, I got through it and now I'm on a whole new schedule when it comes to writing~ Sure, it's been relatively hard to purposefully ignore people (including my parents, mind you) and lock myself in my stuffy bedroom to rewrite stuff. But it has to be done; there's no way around it. If I want my manuscript to be the best it can possibly be, rewrites are MANDATORY.

Thankfully, I've managed to stick to this rather crazy schedule (4 chapters on the weekend and 1 every other day during the week) somehow, of course! Although, I DID slack a bit late this past week due to writer's block, doubts, and typical life issues. Anxiety and panic attacks have been unfortunately common, and I'd be lying if I didn't say it was because of my crazy schedule and the fact that I'm pushing myself under a deadline that could probably be pushed even further.

The thing is, however, that I don't want to keep my readers waiting any longer for this sequel. I want to introduce new characters and concepts to them, show that the first book was just the beginning (because it WAS, heheh)

Anyway! Other than my writing, I haven't had too much time to do anything else, really. I mean... I went to see Love, Simon earlier this week with my Mom since she's off work because of an injury (long story, don't worry about it; she's fine now~) I also bought a new book! That I honestly probably won't open until the manuscript is almost completely edited, oops!

Before I end this blog, I do want to bring up an idea that I've been playing with for the last week or so. Well, maybe it's been a month- I have no idea anymore. OK, so I've been thinking about doing another fanart contest, and this time, instead of awarding the winners with free copies of my books, I plan to give out Amazon Gift Cards instead ^^ So yeah. It's a possibility, but I'm honestly not confident enough yet. Maybe once book 2 is ready to be published, I'll have another contest, but until then.. mind voting on this poll I made on Twitter about the whole ordeal? The more votes, the better! Thanks in advance ;)

Aaand that's it for this week! Thanks for reading, everyone~

See you all next Sunday, little vamps!
