~*As for me...*~

Well! February has been slightly better than January. I say slightly because a few snags came up along the way, aside from more weather related frustration (welcome to Ohio). One of those snags is that I need to move... AGAIN. As you may remember, I moved out on my own last year around this time (March 23rd to be exact). My lease is almost up and I just got notice that my monthly rent is increasing... by much more than I can afford. So! I'm going to be moving out and into another apartment, one that will be much closer to work.

While this change might be tolerable, I'm more irritated by the heap of annoyances that come with the moving. #1: I have to pack everything up and MOVE again. #2: I have to change my address with every company, and let me tell you, that just takes up way too much time. #3: I lose a huge chunk of my free time because I'm trying to pack, transport all my stuff, and take care of all necessary business associated with moving.

And losing my free time means not much time to write. That one burns me up the most. I've been working REALLY hard trying to write Not Until Tonight so that I can publish it on time. I already moved the release date up from February to March... and now I'm having to move it from March to April.

*sigh*

But I'm not going to let the negative win! I'm viewing it this way: It gives me plenty of time to finish, send to betas, set up the cover reveal/release day blitz/mini blog tour, send out ARCs... So, I'm remaining optimistic about the changes ahead!


Hopefully everyone has had a great February and here's to a great March!!

  1. Ooo frustrating! It's been a long while since I've had to move but lordy I remember the mess of it. I've had to do the change of address for my business a couple times now (and about to have to again in May as well as move the actual business after 5 years eep!) and that's something I'm so not looking forward to so can definitely feel your pain on that!
