Despite the fact that work has been sapping away my time and energy, I've actually had writing on the brain quite a bit. First, my boyfriend and I are working on finally putting together our office room. My dad and I painted it a bright bold teal a couple of months ago, and we are narrowing down our decisions on furniture. As of now we basically use the room as a laundry drying room--though the closet is also full already, but I am hoping to sort of commandeer this room at least a little bit as my own little inspiration room. He's letting me hang some of my fairy prints on the wall (he owns the house so final say is his ; ]) and I plan to also hang either a white board or cork board so I can story board like I used to in college. I know it doesn't exactly work this way, but I am sort of hoping that having that space where I can sit in the quiet by myself, or stare out the window, or listen to music while I write might help me to write a little more. That maybe having a space to go that is "writing space" will encourage me to carve time out of the busyness.
The second reason I've had writing on the brain is because of a special little project I'm just beginning. I'm hoping (because it needs to) that it happens like I want it to and wraps up rather quickly, but for now it needs to stay a secret project because nosy kittens like to play in these here parts and I can't have them unravelling the ball of yarn just yet.

I have not yet decided whether I want to participate in April's A-Z challenge. I attempted it once when I blogged a few years ago and I did not do so well. I just can never seem to keep up with blogging every day. But I haven't ruled it out just yet... so maybe.
Last, I want to give a gigantic thanks to Shell Flower for nominating me for the Inspired Blogger Award. I promise to actually do the Inspired Blogger post ASAP, but alas as it is past midnight and I am actually quite sick right now I shall save it for a time when my brain is more coherent. At the moment I am finding it difficult to even fathom how my blog could possibly be inspiring, but I'm super duper stoked about it nonetheless. : ]
