Reading: The Shining by Stephen King (I will finish this book, so help me!), Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, 13 Bullets by David Wellington, The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black
So... I haven't posted much, writing wise lately. That's due to several things: 1) I haven't really be inspired lately. 2) I've been working 30-40+ hours a week (a three-quarters job plus an internship will do that you) and 3) What little free time I have I'm trying to dedicate to the beginnings of researching literary agents. I worked something like 18 hours last week and this week I worked (starting this last Sunday) about 30 hours this week. This coming week, while I got some long shifts, I do have a few days off in the middle of the week.
I'm really liking where I'm at. I was moved from Game Room Attendant up to a Guest Service Host about three days into training and I'm really happy that happened. I like the people I work with and this last week really showed me that I wouldn't mind working here until my writing career takes off. I do wish the job paid a little bit more - but who doesn't wish that? I'm getting good hours and I like my managers as well. That's a big thing. The last place I worked was... well, simply put, horrible. The managers there didn't know how to manage much less how to treat employees as if they were people. Here, it's the complete opposite. One of the higher ups (I believe he's the VP of something) gave me a fist bump the other day when I was cashing out. It's such a nice place with good people. I'm content here.
Anyways, back to this writing slump. I'm hoping to get out of it soon. I started something on my computer this night... I just don't know where exactly it's going. I got an idea of where I want it to go, but I'm not entirely sure where/how to get it there. So, we'll see if this will make it here to dA... I'm also not confident in my writing right now. It's not that I think it's bad, I just feel like I'm trying to force something out that doesn't want to come (all thanks to this stupid writer's block... argh!) Anyways, yeah, that's what's going on with my lack of posting. Work and internship are keeping me busy and I've been fighting a darn writer's block... boo!
