I know I haven't posted anything in ages and ages. The truth is, living back at home with my parents has stunted my motivation to both create and to blog. I'm currently working a retail job, which, while most definitely a learning experience, makes me feel very pessimistic about my future career options.
I did, however, participate in 2011's National Novel Writing Month and I won. I'm as surprised as you are, believe me. I wrote a 53,000 word novel in less than a month. (Its title is Quest for the Marion and it's a sci-fi novel.) It's rekindled my desire to write. And while I haven't been nearly as focused as I was in November, I am still writing. Which makes me feel good about myself.
I think I will make an effort to get my creative life back on track, in terms of creating visual art. I've been slowly filching things (that would have otherwise been thrown out, so I don't feel very bad) from my job with the plan of making a "December" mini-book mostly documenting my experience at seasonal retail.
Enough about my life. I made a Christmas mix for kicks and giggles, full of songs I've been into lately. I thought I would put the MediaFire link up here in case anyone's interested.
