Consistent Posting? *snort* What was I Thinking??



Ok. So, when I say I'm back for more consistent posting. . .it never quite works out, does it?

*ahem* I am NOT back for more consistent posting. <--period for added effect (Let's see how reverse psychology works.)

My cousin apparently wants me to be a contributor on her new horse website HerdNerds. Check it out. And pay close attention to her side of things -- she is super experienced and super talented when it comes to the horse realm. My stuff: eh, not so much. I mean, seriously: my experience is riding my blind pony around in my backyard. O.O
With a few years of hunter and jumper training mixed in there somewhere. And riding a couple'a barrel horses a time or two. But that's ALL the hands-on experience I have. Everything else is via reading and reading and reading and some more reading -- oh, and research.

Since I last left you: I finished and graduated from highschool/gradeschool-- kind of an exciting time *_* ; participated in my piano teacher's year-end recital that she holds for all of her students -- I played "Dawn", from Pride and Prejudice for both of her recitals in the same afternoon; I've FINALLY completed registration for and will be officially attending my town's local community college in the fall (that only took how long and cost everyone how much effort? -.- )

And I'm being lazy and spending my first summer days reading all about horses and training and messin' around with JoJo. :) Oh, not to mention all the fun my sister and I are having with my new camcorder and Breyer Horses. ;)

WAAAAIIIT!!! I almost forgot to mention one of the most exciting things! "See No Evil" is in its third editing process; and it is already available for *purchase* through myself (I may have a teeny little secret. . . ;) ). Ok, ok, so it's not "officially" published -- but it's a start, right? And I'm hoping to try to get it out there on the table and at least figure out what the word "publishing" really, truly, exactly means by the end of the summer.

Last year my summer project was to crochet an afghan. This year it's to publish my book. A step up? I think so. But Joey and I are ready for it (I hope. . .) ;)

  1. Some very exciting stuff for a young girl and her blind pony.
    My theory is that when folks aren't blogging its because life is happening, and they'll always be back when they get a breather.
    The whole book thing? Uber exciting!!! Well done.

  2. Cindy, I don't know if you'll see this, but I just wanted to say thank you for all of your support. Your comments on this blog (and on my section of the HerdNerds website) are so encouraging. Being the only horse-lover in a family of 9, as crazy as I am about them, and literally never getting to interact face to face with other horse lovers is really hard and discouraging. Comments and input like yours is partly what keeps me going.
    I just wanted to give you thanks from the bottom of my heart. <3

  3. Congratulations on your graduation. I would ask if it feels great to be done, but with college on the horizon I know it's not done, it's just beginning!

    Publishing a book is definitely ambitious! Good luck!
