Officially in Las Vegas

For those of you who don’t know, I’m sorry I haven’t been updating or posting as much as I like to! I am officially all moved in to my apartment here in Las Vegas, and I do not have wifi yet…or a not broken computer. I am planning on taking it to this place in North Las Vegas that is receiving rave reviews, and hopefully they can help so I don’t have to buy a brand new laptop.

Luck hasn’t exactly been on my side the last week, but I’m hoping to get things sorted out here by the end of the month or even next month. We’ll see what happens!

22 Hours Left!

After a 13-hour haul, I am in Troy, Illinois! Tomorrow we have another long haul, where we should end up in Amarillo, Texas. From there, we will end up in New Mexico before finally reaching Las Vegas.

Heading out to Vegas tomorrow!

I alredy found an apartment and signed a 10-month lease. I move in July 1, and I already have an interview for next week for a job. I will keep you all posted!

It’s The Final Countdown!

Alright, not really. Not yet anyway. I am officially at Pittsburgh International Airport getting ready for my flight to Las Vegas, Nevada! After weeks, months, and years of waiting, I’m finally heading out there. I know I said that before, but now it’s SUPER real as I sit here at my airport terminal waiting for my flight.

Which has been delayed by 15 minutes. Southwest is cheap and a great airline, but in terms of delays, they’re rated one of the worst.

There’s already a lot of people here at the gate, surprisingly. No, I guess not THAT surprisingly. It IS Las Vegas. It’s Las Vegas.

I’m finally here. I am finally here.

Tomorrow’s the Big Day!

Tomorrow is the big day where I FINALLY after all this time get to go to Las Vegas. After weeks, months, and years of waiting and waiting and waiting, I’ll finally be in the city itself looking at apartments and applying for jobs. It’s hard to believe that my life has reached this point, and that I’m ready to make this journey and start this trek by myself. Of course, I know I’m not completely by myself. I have a great support system in my family and my awesome friends, and I simply couldn’t be more blessed.

Here’s to whatever this week holds. Let’s hope it’s all positive things!

Two More Days

In approximately two more days, I will be on a flight from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Las Vegas, Nevada to look for apartments to begin the next chapter of my life. I have nine that I am considering right now, three of which are looking REALLY good, but we shall see.

It’s hard to believe that after months and months of waiting, this time is finally here.

Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. …If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.

Writers: 10 Ways To Stay Sane When You’€™re On A Deadline - Writer’s Relief, Inc.
Deadlines are a fact of life for writers. And sometimes it’s hard to stay sane when you’re facing a tight deadline (or two or three…). Whether it’s a self-imposed time frame for building your author platform or a publisher breathing down your neck for edits to your novel, working under pressure can be stressful.
Time constraints are usually manageable, but it’s human nature to procrastinate—so many distractions!—and writers sometimes end up working feverishly around the clock right to the last minute. So, how do you stay sane when you’re on a deadline? Here are a few tips.
