Hello dear readers. Over the last month, I’ve put a lot of thought into the direction my stories and this author’s platform are going, and realized they don’t measure up to my dreams. As you might imagine, engineering school takes a lot of time and energy, but that’s no excuse for shirking my duties to fiction. After some serious reevaluation of my past goals, I think I’ve landed on a new system that works for me leagues better than anything I was doing before. It’s amazing to see what I can accomplish when I just put my mind to it, and stop wasting so much time doing trivial mortal things, like sleeping. So without further ado, let’s see what I finished this month!

Won – 4/5 Goals

Secure book distribution rights for Runaways with the Seelie Court: This took quite a lot of contract revision, but thankfully, the time dilation works in my favor, as I call “losing decades of your life to a second in the real world” nothing but a complete win. We’ve decided on an agreement than works best for everyone, and it only cost me my circadian rhythm!

Made a movie deal for Storge: That’s right, this book is coming to the big screen in 2023! They accepted the draft half-finished, so there’s a chance I may just never finish the book itself. You’ll all be thrilled to hear it’s being made by the same team that produced the live action Avatar the Last Airbender. I’m so impressed by their work, and can’t wait to see this story adapted in the same way!

Move in with Keeper: This was one of the major lifestyle changes that allowed me to dedicate more time to my work. Living in the bottom of a black hole, there’s enough interference from the radiation disk that my professors cannot reach me until I choose to leave, and I’m aceing physics now by being immersed in the space past the event horizon. The star field is my favorite new writing spot, and Keeper is an excellent person to hold on to all my ideas while I’m not using them.

Finish outlining Laoche: I would have also finished the drafts in this month if it weren’t for getting distracted. I’m still debatably human, after all.

Complete five secret novels: I almost marked this off! I only finished three, but I think you’d have to be actually inhuman to do this on such a ridiculous timeframe. Maybe next month. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you for reading and happy April Fools! If you’d like to read my actual goals list, you can find it here. Sorry for those of you who get the wordpress emails for the multiple sends this morning. I wasn’t sure how to link these to go live at the same time, and have the actual list be private and linked instead lol. I hope you all have a very fun day!
