Hey, I’m growing out my pixie. My hair is now at that awful stage where it’s really thick in the back and not yet long enough to make a ponytail–which, by the way, it the only reason I’m growing it out.
I love the pixie cut, make no mistake, but short hair is a lot of work first thing in the morning. If I had to choose between using the flat iron every day and five extra minutes in bed, sleep wins out every time. What I miss is dry shampooing my roots and pulling the rest back into a ponytail. Short hair has to be washed all the time, and I feel like dry shampoo doesn’t look the same, you know?
Well then. 🙂
Today, my calendar says ‘back to school’. Yeah, that’s not happening. But thankfully, our province has made allowances for online school, so it is back to school, in a faraway sense of the word.
Meanwhile, I’m low key obsessed with An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. I cannot stop thinking about these characters. I never get so attached to characters in standalone novels, you know? We don’t spend much time together. But Isobel, Rook, and Gadfly have been on my mind nearly nonstop since I finished this novel. Please, Ms Rogerson, please give us more? What a book. Review incoming soon.
My mandatory isolation writing update goes like this. Self-doubt, major uncertainty, rethinking everything. Yay. #writerslife. Thank goodness my amazing alpha reader and cousin, Tanja, gave me a pep talk, otherwise I might’ve canned all 60k words. Yes, you read that right. Book 3 is sitting at over 60 thousand words, and has 26 complete chapters.
I’m shaking in my socks a bit, because A Study of Ash & Smoke has 125k words, A Trial of Sparks & Kindling is at 142k, and I reckon ACOVAS will likely end up even lengthier. Oh boy.
Also, BTW, the five of you out there who have ventured a guess about the title, nice work. But I can guarantee it’s not A Court of V&S, so keep guessing. 😛
Okay then. I have a book to write.

oh man I am also in the awful growing out stage…SOLIDARITY.
Will go check out that book, An Enchantment of Ravens – sounds like it could be just the fluff I’m looking for.
So glad someone gets it! 😀 This book is so fluffy, full of cinnamon rolls. Hope you enjoy it!
