Hellllloooooo, everybody. Wow, I’ve been gone for a long time. To be fair, I totally wrote a whole post right after my honeymoon, but I didn’t post it because I wanted two extra photos for them and I didn’t have them yet. And then I forgot about it.
But I’m back now. I got married. I went on my honeymoon. I went to Guam for a month. I wrote 8 episodes of a TV show. And I started a business.
So, yeah, I’ve been kinda busy. First things, first.
Being married is great! I love getting to see my husband everyday and getting to snuggle. I love getting to wake up next to him when I can (he usually wakes up before I do for work, so I get to see him in the mornings on the weekends).
We also had a ton of fun in Guam. It rained a lot while we were there, but we still managed to have a lot of fun.
My favorite part of the Guam trip was snorkeling. I brought my action camera with me and got a TON of great underwater snorkeling footage, which I’ll post later.
I really enjoyed my month in Guam, but I have to say, I am really glad to be back home. Since I’ve been home, I’ve been working on my documentary projects for TBN. So far, I have written 6 whole episodes, and I’ve got two that I’m still working on, which I should be done with sometime in December. The episodes go up in January, so watch TBN and keep an eye out for my name.
I also started a photography business. I did a bunch of free shoots in September to fill out my portfolio. Now I’m taking real customers. I’m also adding a photo booth aspect to the business, which is pretty cool. I’m planning on trying it out at a local farmer’s market.
Just today, I finally got my business license (I needed it for the farmer’s market) after a week of trying desperately to get it done. It was a whole ridiculous process that included me paying for a thing I didn’t need and having to get my money back, visiting City Hall three separate times and the court house once, and waiting a full week to get a copy of my lease from my apartment to prove where I lived.
*takes several deep breaths*
It was crazy, but it’s done now. I’m legal and ready to go.
In other, more fun news, NaNoWriMo is starting on Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been wanting to do NaNo for years, but this is the first time that I haven’t had tons of homework to do around this time. It’s going to be awesome!
Technically, I’m not doing NaNo exactly as it’s supposed to be used. Instead of writing a single 50,000 word book, I’m going to be writing my third novella in the Deep Hollow series, which is only supposed to be about 20,000 words. I’m also going to be writing the script and outline for a podcast in the same universe (more on that later).
That’s about it for me. To all of my fellow writers who are doing NaNoWriMo, good luck!
And since tomorrow is Halloween, enjoy this adorable picture of a meerkat on a jack-o-lantern.
