The Tap Dancing Troll Above My Head

Hello World Out There World!

As of the start of this week I began the new adventure of working as an executive assistant for a non-profit. Everything about this job I love so far. I’m building the position with the owner, I’m able to use all my strongest skills from my creativity to my social media knowledge to my office experience. I get to meet a variety of different people with all kinds of backgrounds while helping help my boss help the underdog.

The other thing I like about this job is its flexibility and the innovative work space. There is at least 40 small local companies in the building and the majority of them have open/ shared floor offices. All these businesses work together like a little community helping one another with ideas and using everyone’s skills to work towards success.

It took me know time to fall in love with the place and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to stay on after my 12 week trial is complete because I think I found where I fit. Non-profit and innovative work places. Who knew!

The only downside I can find to my current work situation is the construction going on above my head all day. I love the little office I get to work in. There is a lot of natural light and original wood floors/ pillars. It is a good mix of old meets new here… but the whole building isn’t like that. Since the owner of the building took control the only working floors is 2 and 4… so floor 1 and 3 are a construction nightmare. Lucky for them I can handle working in loud places… being teacher trained and all… but sometimes it gets so loud that even a Buddhist monk would lose his shit.

Hopefully they will be done the floors above my head soon… keeping my fingers crossed.

With that said, what is one thing you are happy about this week? Mention it in the comments below and until next time toodles!! :3

UPDATE: Yeah… it’s been a while

I know… I’m a terrible updater… but at least I’m doing this now.

Some of you know I’ve moved.

The place is bigger. Neighbours are quieter. Area is nicer! All bonuses.

It is also closer to family, which I like since I haven’t seen some of them for six-seven years. I also have a lot of free time now that I’m unemployed to work on my blog and work on my second book – so yay!

Since I’m unemployed and I want to start the publishing process in June (4 ish months away) I’ve been looking at other ways to get the money I need to pay for this process.

As mentioned HERE – I was considering crowd-funding but have since chosen to go the patron route of Patreon. At the moment I’m still working out the kinks for that – like the payment process since I’m not an American citizen – but I’ll let you know when it is up and running.

Patron levels start at $1 and will be once a month – since if I did per story I wouldn’t have any patrons because I know I can write like crazy… so this is best for all of us.

Book Two Draft One is Complete!!

This is both exciting and nerve racking at the same time. I love the draft writing process and dread the editing process… but it is something that needs to be done. At the moment I am going through part by part making sure everything flows and I don’t spot any obvious plot holes… this is also where I like to cut out a lot of words like: before, believed, assumed, needed, need, like, looked, was, been, had, and as.

I will put this book through a third review before June where I’ll send it to my editor for final touch-ups. The third review will be where I add more description, strengthen the dialogue, ensure my characters are betrayed the way I want them to be, and do my last spell/grammar check.

There is still a lot I need to do but it is a process I am now familiar with.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

With that all said, I believe I have caught you all up with what’s going on. Hopefully I will post another update again… probably will when it comes to announcing the opening of my Patreon.

All right… toodles for now!
