An Unexpected Delay! · 1:52pm
Hello my friends. I'll have to keep this brief, and I'm sorry to say I have some bad news, but I do have some good news as well. Yesterday morning I found out my co-workers and I have to work the entire weekend this week. So no days off, and this means I'll be most likely working 12-13 days straight till I have a day off. I didn't think that was going to be such bad news to deliver, seeing as I thought it'd just be a bunch of 8-hour shifts, so I could still write, and celebrate my anniversary with all of you.
Now, here's where the real bad news seeps in. This morning, just around the end of my shift, I found out I most likely will have to go in early the next two days and work 7p-7a. Which means no time to write, no time for anniversary blogs, and no time to read new stories either. So, I'm going to have to hope that they don't need me in early both nights, and play things by ear. I know you all will stick with me during these trying times. And I will just have to space out some of my special blogs across the next few weeks.
Despite these set-backs, there is good news! My new story is coming along nicely, I have almost 2,800 words done, and that's after hitting a few snags. Thankfully I managed to apply my anti-writer's block techniques and got through both of them. And while I was at work last night, I got a great idea on how to start the next scene, which leads into the "heart" of my new story, but I don't know if I will get the chance to make any more progress for a while. It figures, whenever I start to get cooking on something, work steps in and steals my free-time. Oh well, as I said, I'll just make the best of this. It's just I love to write. For me, it's like how video games are to some of you.
Well, I'd better head to bed. Hopefully things will work out and I won't have to go in early. But either way, I'll get by this. I just wanted to keep you all posted. Thank you as always for your continued support and patience. I'll be sure to do my best! Oh, and I have two pics to share with you!
Oh yeah, before I go...I do sorta have a survey to share with you. What do any of you think of having a story element involving one of my OC humans aspiring to become a Knight of Canterlot? And I mean a knight, not just a royal guard. Your thoughts?
I sort of feel like Celestia in this pic in regards to my own job, only mine is with boxes, not the paperwork of ruling a kingdom.
And here's a fun pic of Twilight. Fun Trivia fact - this was one of the many pics I considered for use as the cover of "For Whom She Sparkles" But I felt the other one was better...and cuter!
