That being said I've been MIA for so long that I figured I should update not only this website, but what has been happening at Chez Cheryl.
#1) I'm deep into severe revisions and edits with my novel, The Unknown Sun. I am a slow writer. I am an even slower editor/reviser. Put those together and yes I've been revising for roughly 6 months now, but the end result (whenever and however that makes it out to the public) will be worth every OCD deletion of adverbs and indecision over scenes. I promise. I am actually on the home stretch, in the last 2 scenes. Can I high five myself yet?
#2) I've also re-started my online fan-fic, but it is still pared down to roughly once a month (see #1 for the reason). If you haven't checked out The Youngest Ascended yet, start here. It's a free fun read that is based on my love of fantasy and games and I initially began it as a joke for my husband and friends, Jade and Jaeger (not real names of course). Take it as it is and enjoy. No need to have even heard of the game it sprang from, I promise.
#3) The soul sucking Day Job has been a steady stream of evil. I have been temping for a bank for roughly 6 months now and have come home to kids/husband/dinner/pet fish... tired and soulless. This has been very nearly remedied by finally being offered a permanent job at an increase in pay at another bank. I accepted and start on the 15th so wish me luck. Lots of it, since I hope it isn't also soul sucking and until my books leap into readers hands and I can remain home to write, I will have to work.
#4) I have discovered that I am a total and utter Whovian. No explanation necessary.
So, with all that out on the board now what? I am completely phobic of random posts about random small talk things, so how about another book review? Check back this coming week for a review of a book I found breathtaking!
