...I don't get my new glasses 'til Thursday but I've built it up in my head that the new prescription lenses are going to be life changing. Bye-bye headaches, and weird vision. Bye-bye only being able to draw for ten minutes at a time, and not being able to see out of my right eye by the end of the day. Goodbye to all that, and hello to typing for hours, drawing all day, and not feeling like my head is going to explode.

I may have built it up a bit too much, but only two more sleeps!

In other news...I went to a writers meet-up thing in London on Saturday. It was fun and interesting and a little overwhelming but I talked to people, and didn't flail or fangirl too badly. Anyway, one of the things we talked about was newsletters. So, yesterday I made one...well, I set the means by which to send them out. I was thinking that I could send one once a month, just recapping some of my blog posts, doing giveaways when I have something to giveaway, or adding excerpts or free chapters of stuff. IDK I figured it was worth a try, see if people like it or not. LJ won't let me put the form on here but you can sign up for it at the bottom of the page here.

I'm kinda excited about it as I'm using Mailerlite to make the newsletters, which is such fun to use! I spent all day yesterday geeking out over it when I should have been doing other things...like writing. I can thoroughly recommend it. Especially for procrastinating : )

Miss your faces! xxx

Nothing beats a new pair of glasses, honestly, just don't forget that they will be a bit fuzzy whilst your eyes get used to them :) Miss your face too!!! Also, that procrastination tool *giggles* looks like hella fun! xx

Oh no...you made me giggle at 'tool'! : )

I have high hopes! Everything feels like a struggle right now, so it would be nice to catch a break and have my eyes back : ) x

There's gotta be a break in the cloud bb, because I'm a brat and I always get my way, and I say so ;) ♥ xx

I hope the new glasses help a lot, and that you'll be " typing for hours, drawing all day, and not feeling like my head is going to explode."

Me too! But can guarantee you that they will in no way make me look that cool : ) Or see hellhounds...although I did pay extra for a special filter on them so maybe I will! Cool : ) I'll post a pic when I get them xx

Oh a special filter sounds intriguing! I hope you don't see any hellhounds, but Lily would protect you from them!

Oh I am so signing up for your newsletter!

(I've done the same with getting excited about glasses, and usually I get my new ones and am rather sea-sick for a day or two! I think, "Is this really my prescription?")

Thank you! I'll try to think of something to put in it! : )

These are just for close work but she said I have to use them when I'm on the computer now too. But yeah the first pair I had, I would be working, forget I was wearing them, then fall over when I got up to walk around! It was probably quite funny if you were watching : ) xx
