March Madness (April 8, 2015)

I've been horrifically MIA for the past month (or more ...). Oops! March was crazy. I figure I should post an update so it doesn't appear like I'm dead.

  • Badminton season started — we're 8-0 thanks to my wonderful doubles partner :)
  • Won a Writing Portfolio Gold Medal in the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards
  • Wrote 60,000 words of a new novel, threw out 50,000 of them, and am now writing a second draft (yes, this is how I write)
  • Spent far too many hours watching A's and Giants spring training games
  • Remained fairly zen about Indiana (mainly because it's pretty clear the Supreme Court will overturn the law)
  • Technically happened in April, but got the awesome opportunity to meet the cast from Elementary! And gave my friends the satisfaction of seeing me in a holding cell on the set ...
