Sure, it's sort of girly, but Yoshi is completely comfortable in his manhood so he can pull it off.
I finished the first draft of my second novel!
It ended up weighing in at 82,487 words.
(in real, published novel speak this is somewhere around 330 pages)
I've already begun to read through it and make changes for the second draft
and I'm so ecstatic! I've got a good feeling about this one, I swear.
I'm really excited to finish the editing process, hopefully by the beginning of summer, and to begin querying publishing agents. If any grammar-nazis want to take this story on (for free...I'm a starving, unpublished author, after all) once I've finished making changes, let me know!
In other news, I'm on Day 3 of my 7-day diet and I'm feelin' good!
Sunday was all fruits, which was no problem (I could nosh on fruits all day long),
and yesterday was all veggies, which was a bit weirder. For example, I had cauliflower for breakfast, which felt incredibly bizarre. You're supposed to avoid sugary veggies, like corn or carrots, but I treated myself to some carrots for dessert last night because I'm decadent like that.
Today I can eat both fruits AND veggies, which feels like a party after yesterday.
I've already had a grapefruit, apple and strawberries and I'm looking forward to an enormous plate of sauteed (without oil) peppers, onions and mushrooms (I'm counting those as veggies, so back off!)
with a big side of broccoli. Yum.
I think my body's pleased to have such a plethora
of vitamins and nutrients at its disposal.
You're welcome, body.
In other, other news, today is day 2 after PDT treatment,
which means it's the worst day for my face. Its insanely hot, swollen and red
(a lot like the worst sunburn of your life). And I'm still not allowed outside (as my skin is really
susceptible to sunlight right now) which stinks because it's supposed to be a gorgeous day.
I hope everyone else is out there, frolicking in the beautiful weather for me!
