New Beginnings

I may have fallen off the CampNaNoWriMo wagon in July, but I did manage to finish the month with a new prologue.  It may be short, but it sets the tone for one of the projects I will be working on in the near future.  And that makes me happy.  
Below is a snippet from the prologue to ‘Sophia,’ inspired by the Star Wipe Films short film, inspired, in turn, by the myth of Hades and Persephone.

New ‘Do

HaircutIt has been a LONG time since I posted in my blog, but since I’ve been publishing my novel, Resistance Rising, I’m hoping you’ll forgive me! As a way to ring in the new year, as well as embrace a new phase of my life, I decided to make a MAJOR change by way of a haircut; parting with 12 inches of my hair, which I am delighted to donate. For years, I thought I was unable, since I dye my hair, but the salon I’ve been going to use non-synthetic dye and no bleach, so I am able to donate after all!

2017 was as much a whirlwind for me as it was for everyone else; I was a bridesmaid, I celebrated my one-year anniversary with DUO Media Productions (coming up on two years this month!), I pushed my cosplay limitations, and I’ve gotten a crash course into becoming my own, personal book-marketing team.

The process of publishing the book was an extremely enlightening process and pulled my priorities into sharp focus. I am giddy with pride over the finished product, but I also had to learn to let a lot of things go. One of my colleagues (over at DUO Media Productions) likes to say, “you’re never done, you just run out of time.”

I’ve had long, nearly-waist-length hair my entire life, so this was a significant metamorphosis. I’m adapting to this new hairdo far more quickly than I expected, and I find that it is, indeed, very reflective of who I am now.

Don’t you love it when everything falls into place?
