Hello lovelies! I have returned from the dead and am ready to write new posts! I was an a creative slump these past few weeks, even carrying over into my schoolwork, but I am no longer in that place of stagnation. I am participating in Camp NaNo this month of April, having done no extracurricular writing but a lot of plotting and research, as my novels are historical mysteries and need to be historical based.
At any rate, I wanted to share with you my top ten ways to get ready for a month of plotting, writing, or editing. It’s gonna be quite the month, and you’ll want to make sure to stay on top of your mental and physical health while you’re at it. We all love her, but there was one particular blogger who, last year, burnt out suddenly before July Camp NaNo and has been on hiatus for quite some time. She is feeling much better now, and thank God for His mercy, but that is an example of what devoting too much unhealthy energy toward a project can do to a person. Actors, singers, dancers, writers, athletes––all of them can get burned out. It is important that your mental and physical and creative health are all at peak throughout months like April, July, and November.
Y’all know I haven’t posted since February 1st, right? 😜
It’s true. I haven’t. *sips tea* But, I did post on my YouTube channel (once, lmbo) and I did start a mailing list so if you haven’t subbed, please do and make sure that you GET AN EMAIL. If you don’t get an email, please let me know in the comments. The gift you get is a printable calendar that even I have been using for school and it’s freaking awesome. So please sub to my mailing list for a free calendar.
I’m not one for lame excuses and apologies but I know I haven’t really posted in a spell. So sad, so sorry. Butttttt you can’t blame me because I continually tell you to follow my YouTube channel and I posted like twice on there this month and so if you watch my YouTube videos, it’s like I am bringing you content in the background.
But, enough talk, am I right? Talk is empty and void. Let’s get jamming.
I am coming off a holiday high right now, so bear with me as I rumble and rant through this post.
I know, I know, you’re mad at me for not posting in like a hundred years, but I did tell you to subscribe to my YouTube channel in the meantime, and I did upload two episodes of my ATL Adventure show, so can you blame me? (I never got no love.) Anybody get the reference? No? Okay.
I’m super excited that Christmas 2018 and New Years’ 2018 happened and it was GREAT! Sad that it’s over, and even more sad that with the decline of the holiday fuzz comes the onslaught of midterm exams. Nevertheless, I have discovered quite a few singers and songwriters I’d like to make public to you, so that you can have something to play as you wind down your excitement and brace yourselves for the new year.
Hi everybody! HAP-HAP-HAPPPPPPPPPY NEW YEAR! It’s Hazel, and I’m so glad to see you again after such a long break! It’s been a while since I updated this blog, unfortunately, but I’m way excited to begin writing again. I’ve been focusing on other, very important, non-blogging projects, such as MY FAMILY, OUR MOVE, and MY EMOTIONAL WELLBEING. Those are very important. I’m also starting a new after school theater…thing, and I have been practicing my audition as well. That’s what been keeping me rather busy, and rather not with you guys, but I’m back!
It’s Mimiko *cough* and I’m *cough* really excited to *cough* see you *cough*. UGH. This is NOT my week. I’ve been really sick lately, and to top it off, I missed Positive Playlist November!
See, Hazel “lost” my post somewhere, and by the time she found it, *cough* the date for November had passed! I was very angry, so she promised me that I could do Positive Playlist December to make up for it, but now I’m sick! *cough* Now I can hardly talk, I drink chicken soup erry day, and I’m miserable!
Anyways, I’m getting paid extra for this because I should be off today for my illness, so let’s get on with it. *cough*
