It's officially the last day of BEDA but I'm really not too concerned. We've built this beautiful little blogging community and I would be very surprised if anyone was going anywhere any time soon. My google reader tab is one of my most frequently checked and I know I'll continue reading blogs. I hope you continue reading mine. :)
In the last few days I watched a video Wheezywaiter made and read a blog michaelaranda posted at their respective Chicago and LA fiesta training sessions, and it looks like loads of fun. I am really really excited for mine and I know I'll have all sorts of great things to tell you about it after it's all over.
I am feeling REALLY anxious today. It's Thursday. I have one class today. We're on the psychoanalysis week of my theory class, and I took an entire class on Freud in the fall so it's a lot of repeat. Tonight is laundry night. I'll probably clean my room. Then I'll probably pace circle on the floor in my bedroom because I am SO EXCITED for the things happening to me shortly.
Tomorrow at 4:00 is the start of the Fiesta weekend, and then Alex gets here MONDAY.
To bridge the gap between the two, Eia and I might take a trip up to the Skagit Valley tulip fields on Sunday if we have time. I LOVE going to to the Tulip fields. Imagine just acres and acres of beautiful colorful glorious tulips. :D
I also have a midterm paper to write at some point this weekend so we'll see how that goes.
We're wrapping things up on the Parselmouths album as well, so that's really exciting. I still kind of feel like the amount of things I have taken on this year are flying around my head like some big huge out of control tornado, but things will fall into place. I mean I hope so. They always tend to.
One of the biggest things stressing me out is also super exciting news, though.
DFTBA is going to start a publishing branch of their distribution label and they want mine and Alex's novels to be their launch titles.
This means my book will be published and available to the public probably by late August/early Sepetember.
While exciting, this is also terrifying, because that means I need to be FINISHED editing before that date, and adding that to the long list of things I've already signed up for in the next few months... *panics*
But I'm going to do it. It's been a dream of mine to have people read my writing since I was old enough to read my first Babysitter's Club Little Sister book when I was like 7. Oh Karen Brewer. How inspirational you were.
On that note, I will conclude my 30th and final BEDA post. Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring month, everyone. Honestly, all the comments that many of you left telling me how much you enjoy my writing was that extra push I needed in the right direction to agree to publishing a book through DFTBA. You may think I don't have time to read my comments of that your opinion doesn't matter, but it really, really does. Because of a handful of you, you've given me the courage to put my writing out there. I'm grateful.
Here is the last BEDA word! (What was I calling it? SINWEEDA? I dont even remember what that means. xD) I'm going to be lame and pick one I thought of because I never have before. IT'S MY BLOG I CAN DO WHAT I WANT.
