Birthday Day


I celebrated my birthday in two very important, very different ways this year.

1. I stayed up the night before my birthday writing and rewriting the final scenes of my novel until they felt “right.” Then, scarcely able to sleep, I was up early the morning of my birthday formatting and sending out my first-ever agent queries. This is a profound step for me personally, and I couldn’t resist doing it on a milestone day.

2. I played video games. More specifically, I nested in the house, played video games, ate lots of food, cuddled the cats, and generally soaked in the life I’ve spent so many years building. There’s nothing better.
