Exciting (idk maybe boring) Life + Blog Updates!


HELLO THERE MY LOVELY AWESOME PEOPLE!! Guess what? I’M HOME FROM THE EPIC ROAD TRIP and officially back on the blogosphere! *dances around happily and hands out waffles* But I have lots of different reasons to partay today, so let’s get on with it!


IT’S SO GOOD TO BE HOME. I seriously can’t describe the joy of having consistent Wi-Fi at my fingertips. MUAHAHAHA. Also long showers and my own bed. OH AND PINTEREST. Mustn’t forget Pinterest. ;)

I can now officially get into a car all by myself and drive places. THIS IS A REALLY WEIRD FEELING OK. I'm like...an adult. *shudders* Not gonna lie – the first place I’ll probably go is the library because sad update: I am also officially #broke and have no money to buy books. *cries softly*

Summer is almost over and we FINALLY opened our pool! *everyone slow claps* But seriously guys: I’ve only gone swimming ONCE this summer. ONNNCE. This is obviously unacceptable. Swimming is one of my favorite things ever and I need to get back into that yummy chlorinated water. :’)

THE OLYMPICS YAAAAS. Who watched the opening ceremony last night? I’m pumped for the swimming obvs. Track and beach volleyball is also fabulous. *flips hair because I’m totally not an Olympian* *seriously how do they do it* *do you know* *does anyone know*



You may or may not have seen this on Instagram the other day, but I just started editing my novel!! EEEEEASDFGHJKL. I’M EXCITED. I’M SCARED. SEND HELP AND CHOCOLATE. The book is a contemporary YA fiction about surfing and beaches and ice cream and cuddly characters who lie a lot. (Here’s the Pinterest board and a post of snippets!)


^^^ thaaaat is the big bad unedited manuscript. It is roughly 96,000 words, but I hope to carve that word count down once I go through it with a fine-tooth comb. Right now I’m at the stage of “reading and looking for plot holes and inconsistencies while simultaneously cringing and hiding under my bed from the plot holes and inconsistencies.” BUT IT’S ALL GOOD WE’RE ALL GOOD.

I ALSO HAVE ANOTHER BOOK IDEA. It's kind of a companion book to the one I'm editing. This means I have about…hmm…let’s see…12 BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY PLOTTING NOW?? HAHA. Okay DEFINITELY send that chocolate. *screams quietly*



Y’ALL. I HAVE A SERIOUSLY EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while, and I finally feel like I’m brave/ready/lolnotreadyatall to start doing covers!! WOOOT. More specifically: One cover song and video per month! THIS IS ALL VERY NEW AND EXCITING FOR ME, GUYS. I looooove singing other people’s songs, and for the longest time I’ve wanted to record covers but I’ve always been so busy with other things. #hellolife

THERE ARE PROS AND CONS TO THIS OF COURSE.

PROS:
  • it would probably be AWESOME
  • DEFINITELY
  • one cover per month is really not that much to handle (lol some people make an entire RECORD in a month #brbcrying)
  • I’ve also gotten quite a few requests to do covers and all I really want is to make my frens happy so…
  • depending on how freaked out I get, I might even take SONG SUGGESTIONS eventually and HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?? VEY COOL
  • I have a fabulous voice and buckets of humility and everyone loves me so what could possibly go wrong???

CONS:
  • EVERYTHING UNDER HEAVEN COULD GO WRONG
  • like I could be late
  • or my software might not like me
  • or YouTube might not like me
  • OR YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE ME BECAUSE I MIGHT BE LATE ONE MONTH OR SOMETHING AHHH THE HORROR THE TREACHERY MIGHT AS WELL UNFOLLOW ME NOW

You know what?? I’m just going to try it and see what happens. Yeah. ;) WHO’S IN FOR A WILD AND AWESOME AND PROBABLY UNPREDICTABLE ROLLER COASTER RIDE???



I’m also still recording my album. This is something that will probably take MONTHS (because lol I don’t live in Nashville forgive me) but it’ll be worth the wait. I’ve missed the recording studio SO MUCH and I can’t wait to be back at it, creating music. I started writing another song on the road, and I’M NOT GONNA GIVE ANYTHING AWAY BUT I AM GOING TO SAY: BRO. I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE.

→ ALSO ALSO: FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM AND MAYBE I’LL DO THAT STORY THING SOMETIMES AND YOU MIGHT SEE SOME BEHIND THE SCENES CLIPS OF ME CREATING THIS ALBUM. ←


Fear not! I’m not going to throw some crazy surprise blog change thing in your face. However, I am going to be doing a few pretty cool things around here:
  1. REAL LIFE SATURDAYS SHALL RISE FROM DA GRAVE. But! In a slightly different way than you might imagine, so hang on. ;)
  2. Monthly playlists are also returning! Because I ran a poll on Twitter one time and everyone seemed to like my playlists so THEY’RE COMIN’ HOME, YO.
  3. I’m going to start doing END-OF-MONTH PARTAYYYYS. Okay, so we’re just going to pretend they are parties (the bring-your-own-waffle kind) and I’m going to flail about things that happened during the month and I’M GOING TO SQUISH THESE FIRST TWO THINGS INTO THIS THRID THING IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE. Basically, the monthly wrap-ups are going to be a better version of Real Life Saturdays and a playlist will also be involved AMONG OTHER AWESOMEABLES THAT YOU WON’T WANNA MISS OUT ON. NOW AM I MAKING SENSE???

I KNOWWWWWWWW this whole post is very boring and anti-climactic, but that’s kind of how everyone’s lives are. DID YOU EVER THINK ABOUT THAT?? ABOUT HOW WE ARE ALL LIED TO BECAUSE WE THINK THE GRASS IS GREENER ON TAYLOR SWIFT'S LAWN? It’s not. Have fun being kept up at night. 


SO. How have you all been coping with my absence?? NOT VERY WELL, PROBABLY. What are you excited for? THE COVERS!? *screams a little* The end-of-month (lol I need a better name) post idea?? THE OLYMPICS?  (Don’t worry, I’ll be totally offended if you are only excited for the Olympics.) What writing projects have you been working on? If you’re editing too, do come and wail with me. :’)

  3. This post was the opposite of boring!!!

    I just got my own car too! My sister got a brand new one and I got her old one, and I'm so excited about it! And I've been on Pinterest wayyyy too much this summer lol. I've probably been on it enough for the both of us :)

    My grandma lives a few minutes away, and she has a pool. I've hardly swam in it at all because of how mush I am. Perks of growing up, I guess.

    I FREAKIN CANNOT WAIT TONREAD YOUR NOVEL. Even if it's like, five years from now, I'll be the first to buy it :)))) (Also I have such a new appreciation for Downton GIFs now that I've seen two seasons of it)

    YAY I CANNOT WAIT FOR YOUR COVERS (will you sing Ben Rector???)

    This was such a fun post (I promise not boring at all!) and I can't wait for all that you have in store for your blog!

  13. YES YESSS I HAVE MISSED YOU MUCHLY AND I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK. And pfft, have you ever written a boring post in your life?!? I think not. THIS IS ALL VERY EPIC. I don't even know what to flail over first!! All the things!! All the things!!

    I think it's awesome you're going to be singing covers... I seriously cannot wait to hear them. Because your singing is afjdksald amazing. I mean, obviously. That is like a fact.

    And YAY FOR EDITING! And by "yay" I actually mean "Here is chocolate and my condolences and don't die and it'll be okay and you got this and here's more chocolate" because editing is hard, yes? Yes. Very much yes. All the yes. But it's really satisfying too! Especially when the book starts feeling polished and tight and epic. :') I also love how you describe your books. It's wonderful.๐Ÿ˜‚

    I have not watched an Olympics yet #failingatlife I kind of thought I'd watch some over breakfast, but then Instagram was interesting and breakfast was interesting and STILL FAILING AT LIFE. Ahem. I do usually love watching gymnastics and track and swimming...and archery. So I can like watch people being awesome and then feel like an incompetent potato. Good times.

    As for meeeee?? (Because you asked. *twirls majestically*) I am PLOTTING!!! WORLD DOMINATION!! Ahem. I mean. I am plotting books. I'm actually plotting a trilogy and I have like most of it planned out in my head and need to get it on paper ASAP before I forget all the things. Because that would be a tragedy. Epic fantasy fTW tho. <3 I also have my NaNo project plotted out (hahah oh dear) and I'll probably start on edits on an older project sometime in September. Joy. (Not.) (Okay but like I said: editing can be satisfying!!) BUT GOOD LUCK TO YOU WITH YOUR EDITS AGAIN.

      EEEEP THANK YOU SO MUCH I'M SO STOKED FOR THE COVERS. <3 ASDFGHJKL *jumps around incoherently* OH MY THANK YOU FOR THE CHOCOLATE BECAUSE YES EDITING IS SO HARD. :'''') "But it's really satisfying too! Especially when the book starts feeling polished and tight and epic." <<< U NAILED IT. EXACTLY. *nod nod*

      " So I can like watch people being awesome and then feel like an incompetent potato. Good times." <<< HAHAHAHA YES EXACTLY. omg basically my life. xD but yaaaas those are some of my favorite sports to watch. Although I don't think I've ever seen archery?? OBVS THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE.

      EEEEP YOU'RE PLOTTING A TRILOGY?? THAT'S AWESOME, DUDE. *applause and confetti* You slay that epic fantasy, yo. ;) AND YES. WRITE IT ALL DOWN!! That's honestly my least favorite part of plotting because then I have to be coherent and I can't just copy/paste the movie in my brain onto the page. x) DARN. All your writing adventures sound super exciting!!! GOOD LUCK AND CHOCOLATE. and omg noooo i love your long comments Cait!! *hugs*

    But on another super awesome note, these blogs ideas are GREAT!!! I love how you are always innovating and growing your blog, it really inspires me to stop being so lazy. I am really excited about the COVERS!!! Also, Real Life Saturdays are always inspiring posts, very Saturday-ish and graceful. And the end of the month shall soon become a bit more beautiful!

    Oh, I almost forgot to congratulate (?) you on starting this editing. I also will give you virtual chocolate truffles, because editing, EW.

  23. OH YAYY CRIESSSSSSS. how does it feel to be home? i'm totally dreading going back home in a week. i've spent the whole summer away from home and i don't even want to go back. oh, what ache fills my soul. but that's a little different than roadtripping.

    OLYMPICS YAY. although i haven't been able to even see any of it yet except short videos on facebook. whoops. and this young boy at my church was talking to me about how he's gonna start training for the olympics and then officially train in 4-5 years when he's about 13 so that he can be a cool olympic running person. (abs adorbs. i cried and died of love)

    OH WOW SO MANY WORDS TO EDIT YAECAAAAAAA CRRRRRRY. can't even imagine it. i haven't written in a long time (incredibly busy and haven't been around my computer basically AT ALL). also *dies laughing* 12 books to plan. how fun. very enjoyable. glad to hear writing is going well. i'll hopefully pick it back up in the next few months. until then, poems and letters to good friends will be my thing.

  25. Ooh, doing covers sounds like a good idear! I'm opposite than you, in that ding covers sounds waaay easier and not nearrr as scary as writing/singing my own songs. But that is because I don't write songs. Ever. And I am alwaaays singing something. That I did not write. So yeah. Cool!

  27. Aaahh, editing! EDITING IS FUN. Except sometimes you get to draft 4 and you're like "oh, my ending makes no sense", and you look threateningly at your secretary and say "how did you let that plot hole through?!" But then you remember that you ARE your secretary and everything is your fault and you sob and eat snacks.

    .... not to put you off ...

    You have lots of exciting plans, ESPECIALLY THE COVERS! And I didn't know you were recording an album?! Good job! Hope it's going well. Also hope you're enjoying your swimming. I am a wild swimmer and I have been loving ma lake this summer. Currently on holiday on the Isle of Skye so I swam in a loch today! #winning

    Anyway, sending lots of chocolate for the editing! I'm first drafting at the moment, which is half MADLY FUN and half "lol I have no idea where this book is going". Woohoo!

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
