Brewed Thoughts: April 2014

What have I (not) been doing

Photos not mine; all Googled.
I'd like to apologize for the weeks of radio silence on this blog. So here's a short update of sorts.
  • I'm currently editing a novel I've written last 2012 that I'm hoping to release this year. Although I've released a novella and a short story the previous year and last February respectively, editing a 50k-word novel is like getting-a-tooth-extracted-without-anesthesia painful. I've procrastinated most of the time, but I'm pushing myself to get this done and fixed before submitting to my editor. I'm halfway through, so far.
  • I've written a "mature" short story that's now distributed in Buqo. I'll just leave it at that.
  • The Walking Dead season 4 ended a few weeks before Game of Thrones season 4.  So while I'm tearing my hair out in frustration at the lackluster season finale, part of me is thrilled to have the most bad-ass TV series back on air. Also, heads-up to the equally bad-ass showstoppers from House Martell.
  • I am on a reading roll. I've been buying books on a monthly basis and getting my reading quota up. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), my TBR pile is also growing. But I'm not really complaining. Currently reading Tessa Bailey's Unfixable and Karl De Mesa's Demons of the New Year. If this goes well, I'll be able to finish my Reading Challenge of 40 books early this year.
  • I missed Komikon. :(

Well, that's just about it. There's not much to tell as I'm mostly just doing editing/reading/procrastinating work. Hopefully I'll have something more significant to blog about (like finally getting this manuscript done).
