Writing Status

I've been super busy these days with Anatomy and exams and family stuff - there aren't enough hours in the day. Last Monday was the New Lunar Year so Happy New Year to everybody! 2009 is the Year of the Ox and hopefully, this year will be great for everyone.

I just stayed up really late to finish up Chapter 26 for Through Me since it's been forever since my last update. I have 22 pages and I'm pretty much done, but since it's really late now and I'm not sure my brain's been functioning well, I'd like to post the chapter later when I'm more refreshed and have had a chance to look it over and see if certain parts jive with me. As with every chapter, I might switch around scenes, cut out parts, or break up bits. Stay tuned.

Since my schedule's been jammed pack these days, I haven't had a chance to sort through and respond to messages yet so my apologies for the delay - I'm not purposely ignoring you!

Last Friday was the suckiest day ever. I had my first Anatomy exam and practical and made a ton of stupid mistakes and I don't even want to face my professor anymore in case he can somehow zero in on me as the girl who put down "Infraspinatus" instead of "Supraspinatus". I'm an idiot. I glanced at the pinned structure so quickly, I just jotted it down without even looking at the part again and thinking about my answer again. My mind just flew back to the last question regarding the spinal cord and - I just want to kick myself.

Also, I thought there was a pebble in my shoe the whole day, but it turned out, for some odd reason, a tiny shard of glass had somehow found its way into my sneaker and by the time I realized, it had cut through my sock into my toe and my sock was dotted red with my blood.

Anyway, the week begins again and it's way too late now. Class tomorrow's going to suck for me since I haven't finished my readings and plan to wake up early tomorrow to complete them. I just wish I had a photographic memory sometimes. Okay, not sometimes. Always! My eyes are dying on me so this is just a quick update to let you all know that I haven't expired (yet) and I haven't forgotten about writing either. Thanks for your patience and lovely comments, all!


  1. Aww. Don't worry too much about your test ... I'm sure you'll be able to make it for it later in the semester!

    And I'm SO SO excited about the next chapter of "Through Me"!! Like, super super super excited:)

    I can't wait! Anyhow, it's cool that you updated, even though it was really late in the night -- so I know what's going on. I know how late nights go, so I really appreciate it!


  2. Thanks for the note of comfort and commiseration! Really, hopefully, I'll be able to catch up and kick the next exam's butt! :( Fingers crossed.

    Late nights, yay.
