So, time for a non news/science/etc related post! As always, life gets crazy, and mine is no exception. But I’ve got good news!
The edits for my novel have been going VERY well! Huge improvements have been made to the story (in my opinion) and while I loved it before, I love it even more now. Soon I’ll be commissioning a book cover (and of course I’ll post a preview here once I get it!) just as soon as I get the back description polished (which is also coming along).
In other news, I may have discovered why my throat has been so wrecked! It’s been bothering me for a long time, but I hadn’t been having much success figuring it out with my GP. I used to sing all the time (and I was good!) but it has gotten so bad I can barely sing one song without my throat acting up and forcing me to stop (usually with coughing/choking). But I finally got in with a specialist, and we have a working theory! It was a little absurd (almost to the point of humor) when the doctor handed me a pamphlet with my EXACT symptoms outlined in it when my regular doctor and I had been trying so many other things so unsuccessfully for so long. But hope has returned, and I shall sing again!
In other news, last Saturday marked my one year anniversary on WordPress! That doesn’t mark when I started blogging regularly, but still, it’s quite the landmark for me. Blogging doesn’t come naturally to me, and I’m proud that I’ve at least been able to stick with it.
Despite the end of summer too swiftly approaching, there are some things I’m looking forward to… like Doctor Who! Maybe it’s silly to get worked up about a show like that, but I’m really looking forward to the new Doctor and a new season.
To amuse you, here’s Patrick Stewart with a cotton candy mustache:
