Sunday 'fess up...Anni will remember to make posts regularly - one of these days

Hi everyone!

One of these days I'll actually remember I'm supposed to post weekly and then I'll actually have well thought out blog posts.  For now, you're stuck with my rambly posts as I try to figure out what I want to say.

I'm trying to figure out where I want to take my blog.  I know my blog is supposed to be part of my platform for when I get around to publishing something.  Whether I self-pub or go the traditional route is still up for discussion.  I may try the traditional route and then go self-pub if I can't get anywhere with the traditional.  Or I might self-pub and try to go the traditional route for later books.  I don't know.  I haven't decided.  I don't have anything I'd consider ready for publication anyway so I'm trying not to worry about it too much at this point.

But what is my blog going to look like?  Right now I'm not sure I'd want to publish me, given how random my blog posts are.  And how depressed I got for a while and published to my blog.  I don't know.  I don't want to delete my blog and I also don't want to start over with a new blog.  So I guess I'll just leave it as it is and hope for the best.  At least I know that I've got a few loyal readers who don't seem to care that I'm rambly most of the time and depressed once in a while.

At the very least you're all polite enough not to tell me you mind, which I do appreciate.

Life in general this past week has been life in general.  I actually ended up sick most of last week so I didn't work too much.  I've got to keep from missing any more time for a while so my attendance doesn't get me fired.

On the plus side, being home sick let me get some writing done.  I got almost 20 pages done on the current WIP.  I also found out I can transfer my stories to my kindle so I can read over them and decide what I want to do with them.  I can even leave myself notes on passages if I want.  So I'll be putting ONLY A NAME and CRACKED WORLD onto my kindle so I can read over them while I'm at work and make notes on weak parts.  I'm also working on getting SHADOW WAR written.  I've been calling it BLOOD WAR, but that's the second book in the duology...assuming I write both books.  I may end up only doing one book for these characters.  I don't know yet.  It all depends on how well the first book turns out.

I'm doing a lot of reading still.  I'm slowly working my way through the books on my kindle.  I expect to get through them by my birthday, at which time I'm hoping to acquire more Amazon gift cards so I can buy even more books for my kindle.  I'm going to make that request from my family and friends if they want to get me anything.  My birthday isn't until May, but a girl's got to think about these things, y'know?

Speaking of birthdays, I have to figure out what I'm going to do for Himself's birthday.  His birthday is in March and I know what he wants but I don't know if I'm going to be able to get it for him.  He wants a Nook.  He also wants the pieces to put his computer together.  He might be out of a job by then, so I'm wanting him to find a permanent day job that will keep helping us pay bills.  I don't know what's going to happen so we'll have to wait and see.

That's enough rambling from me tonight.  Here's some music videos for you.  (I need to broaden my music knowledge...I'm running out of ideas for music videos.)
