The Time I Spent the Entire Summer With a Busted Laptop

Heyo! I know it’s been a good minute since I’ve last put up a post, but the reason why is actually very simple. My laptop broke 😂

Basically, the bottom of my computer was falling off, and it was taking forever to figure out where to get it fixed (think figuring out customer service advice is tough? Try doing it in another country, in a foreign language). To be honest, it took a solid two or three months to finally get my computer fixed and in working order.

It was hard enough writing a few hundred words on the off day I felt like getting words in my WIPs on my phone, the several blog posts a week I was doing was not going to fit in my timetable.

Now that that’s out of the way, don’t think I’ve forgotten about you! As a matter of fact, I have a bunch of new things that I’m planning to drop on you soon enough. There’s going to be some changes around here! The first being the posting schedule. I’m going to be posting once a week now. For one, it helps me be able to spend more time on better quality posts. For two, I have a lot of catching up to do on my writing since my computer was out of wack 😞

Another change that’s going to be noticeable will be weekly #CharacterChaos highlights! For those of you that don’t know what it is, Character Chaos is a hashtag game on Twitter that I co-host with Katerina King and Gladys Quinn. It’s a roleplay game where you answer the question of the day in character, and you can choose any character from any of your WIPs that you like! Every month there’s new theme! Players even interact with each other very often, and Katerina features a Discord server where you can take it even further as a Patreon benefit on her 4$ Curses tier, so be sure to check her out!

If you couldn’t already guess it, craaaazy stuff happens in the game all the time, and we’ve had characters come out with some shocking revelations, form unexpected relationships, and more. So I’ve decided to have a Character Chaos (CC) highlights segment here on the blog!

“But wait, Celeste! You said you’d only be posting once a week!”

Yeah, well I guess it’s technically two, but one post will be actually well thought out blog content and the other is basically going to be me screaming about CC drama. I’m basically going to be your gossip corner for fictional characters. #WhatIsMyLife

So what have I been up to in my time away? Lots of stuff, actually. I’ve been kicking myself in the butt to do things that just generally improve my mood. So I’ve been doing yoga, trying out a bunch of new dishes and desserts, working hard at editing Dragon Bones: Wedded (which is now in the final stages of production, guys!), and working on the sequel, which may or may not have a name already 👀👀. Not to mention I have this standalone project AND I plan to enter NaNoWriMo this year with a brand spanking new WIP that I’m already brainstorming at.

In short, I’ve been keeping myself busy.

So, tell me what you’ve been up to! Tell me in the comments how you spend your summer this year.
