Back at Training

After more than a week hiatus from training due to inexplicable nausea, I went back to training last night. It was awesome. I went home tired, but feeling incredible. This morning, my legs were like jelly, though. My quads are trembling fair amount. It's a good pain....

There was an exciting search that I think was actually intended for me not the other one. You know, *whispers* the porn star.

So hello to:

Whomever that might be. I was excited about this search because they actually searched my writing pseudonym (which is just my first two initials plus my surname). That's generally a good clue that they weren't looking for the other one.

I writing news, I've finished the short stories for my project. I now just have to write three poems (and re-write a fourth). That is proving a little more difficult than I might have suspected. There seems to be little inspiration for poetry at the moment. After that I have 5 illustrations I must complete and scan in.

Then once everything is edited, and I get permission from the photographer I contacted to use his photo for the front cover (I'll try contacting him again today... If I don't get permission, I'll use one of my photos. It might be worth buying photoshop...), then I'll submit it to for sale. Yay.

The illustrations are likely to take quite a while, and if the poetry refuses to be written, it's going to be another couple of months before this particular project is ready.

For those of you who are considering self-publishing and doing the entire thing from scratch, it's a lot of work. I mean a lot.

Luckily it is happy work! Right, I have to get inspired to write poetry, so I'll leave it there. Have a lovely Wednesday everyone!
